Since John Gallagher and Jason Netherton first formed the band during 'the popular days of Death Metal' in 1991, Dying Fetus have progressed, gained it's unique style and become one of the most acclaimed and popular Death Metal/Grindcore acts in the metal underground.
The band's members combine technical brutality with catchy song structures which make each single track they have released so far innovative and memorable.
After touring with bands such as The Berzerker, Hate Eternal, Gorguts, Skinless and other modern Death Metal acts and releasing five full-lenghts; Jason left the band while Sparky Voyles and Kevin Talley were asked to leave because of various internal conflicts.
Everyone was obviously expecting Dying Fetus' imminent death, but it never happened.
In 2003, Dying Fetus re-appeared with a new album, "Stop At Nothing", and a completely new line-up (only John Gallagher remained). Incredibly enough, even though basically a totally different band, all of the elements that made Dying Fetus such a great group were present in the new release and for someone that didn't know the facts, it would seem that nothing ever changed in the line-up.
Legendary Death Metal act Incantation was formed in the US in 1989 by John McEntee (guitar, vocals) and Paul Ledney (drums). They were soon joined by Arogon Amori (bass) and Brett Mackowski (guitar) whom they recorded their first demo with. John was left alone since the others left and headed in a Black Metal direction. People came and went and in 1992 they released their first full-length album, "Onward to Golgotha". The second album, "Mortal Throne of Nazarene", came in 1994.
The band has experienced a wealth of line-up changes, but has managed to survive and continue to release albums. John McEntee is the only original member left, he has managed to keep the band alive.
John McEntee and his wife Jill (Daily) McEntee are also in a band called Funerus.
