If You Didn't Know, You'd Think They Were Originals 25 July 2011
By Scott Rosenbluth - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is an e.p. of six cover songs and one original song, that show the roots of Dying Fetus, as well as the finished product. If you aren't familiar with the songs or bands that DF cover on this, you'll still enjoy it immensely. True, it's a little slower paced than standard DF fare, but the breathing room is refreshing, not to mention awesomely old school. All covers are death metal staples, so it's not like DF have to step out of their comfort zone, in fact if you didn't know any better, you could easily think this is a wholly original Fetus mini album! For fans of Pestilence, Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, and Cannibal Corpse, you don't need to run right out and pick this up, although it is neat to hear another death metal legend's interpretation of such classic songs. This is Dying Fetus through and through, and any fan of theirs will love this!

Usually hate covers buuuuut...... 28 Aug 2011

Format: Audio CD
For a cover album this is totally awesome. I really enjoy this one and dying fetus does NOT butcher the classics. Everytime these guys release an album im just blown away by how well they compose and conquer the death metal genre. If you like dying fetus and similar give this a try.

(4.5 stars) A darn fine covers album! 27 April 2012
By A. Stutheit - Published on
Format: Audio CD
In 2011, latter-day deathgrind heroes Dying Fetus found themselves in a situation similar to the one that Carolina's Between The Buried And Me were in a few years back. Both bands were fresh on the heels of releasing a new long-spinner - Dying Fetus' sixth one, "Descend Into Depravity," came out in 2009 - before opting to release a covers album soon thereafter. This is rather curious decision in the eyes of many fans because one can't help but wonder why the group did not just release another new full-length studio album. No matter, the results yield a surprisingly rewarding listen on 2011's "History Repeats," making it one of the better covers albums metalheads are likely to come across anytime lately. And, to their credit, unlike their metal brethren in BTBAM, who released "The Anatomy Of" in 2006 (which covered everyone from Queen to Pink Floyd, Blind Melon, and even Depeche Mode), Dying Fetus at least deserve the credit for sticking to their metal roots for their respective covers.

Boasting awesome and instinctively memorable vokills -- including earphone-shaking bellows, nasty growls, wicked shrieks, visceral death metal grunts, and Circle Of Dead Children-inspired pig squeals -- D.F.'s take on Dehumanized's "Fade Into Obscurity" is a beasty opener. It also features technical, machine-gun guitar riffery, thunderous rhythms, and punishing drum blasts. An excellent, surprisingly ripping, lengthy, and even melodic guitar solo crops up near the end, as well. Their rendition of the Napalm Death classic, "Unchallenged Hate," is also quite great, boasting equally-as-killer guitars, drumming, and vocals (they are evil, gory, and crusty as hell!). Track three, "Gorehog" (originally by the band Broken Hope), augments these same brutal vocals with crushing jackhammer rhythms composed of ferocious riffing and Trey Williams' interlocking drums. This is anchored by solid, grumbling bass lines, but they are overshadowed by the totally screaming and squealing guitar solo that pierces the around the mid-point. "Rohypnol" is a definite standout, on account of it being only 43 seconds long. It starts out at groove-oriented, and almost--dare I say--slow burning pace, with restrained tempos and catchy, moderately-fast chugging. Soon, however, things abruptly change of gears, as the track launches into an absolutely breakneck tempo change, rocketing the listener into uncontrolled, blasting grindcore chaos.

That was the first four songs, now the last three. "Unleashed Upon Mankind" (a Bolt Thrower cover) is maybe the best of the bunch. Epic in scope and extremely well-executed, the track makes an efficient, effective, and really cool mix of two speeds: A really catchy, marching groove (which the band adhere to, even at a blistering pace with rip-roaring chainsaw guitars and impeccable blasting) being one; the other is when the band sometimes make the decision to downshift a bit, and opt for a much slower, brooding, and foreboding pace. And the two seemingly polar-opposite styles come together (and are held together) by well-placed breakdowns, mid-tempo excursions, and superbly-executed tempo shifts. Furthermore, there is a ripping little harmonic solo, to boot. And the icing on the cake that is "Unleashed Upon Mankind"? There are monstrous, puking, blood-staind, goregrind-derived vocals covering the whole thing. Moving along, we get a Pestilence cover in "Twisted Truth." Dying Fetus' version of it is not quite as technical or impressive as the original, but it is still a good, and superbly-played tune with fiery riffs and great drumming. Finally, things wrap up with "Born In A Casket" (with a title like that, who else could the original song be by other than Cannibal Corpse?!). The guitars, drums, vocals, and grumbling bass rampage throughout this cut. In other words, think blistering and ferocious thrash riffage, tight, jackhammering blast beats, and an awesome-sounding performance behind the mic from John Gallagher. "Born" is further highlighted by infectious hooks, and a split-second bass interlude.

In conclusion, "History Repeats" is a solid album, an excellent covers album, a splendid compliment to Dying Fetus' last LP (the aforementioned "Descend Into Depravity"), and a satisfying snack for all fans until the group eventually gets around to kicking out a proper new record.
