5.0 out of 5 stars Destroy!!!
Dying Fetus are back with their latest mix of head-severing brutality and groove-laden mosh riffs to once again display the kind of state-of-the-art death-grind that makes them one of the best bands in the business. Musically, I wouldn't say this is a step up from their last two, but it is on par with those releases. And since this is their first release with any...

3.0 out of 5 stars America rocks.
'Destroy the opposition' is very much a technical death metal record. As such, you would be right to expect something a little unusual and unexpected. The best way to describe this record is
as death metal with strong 'rage against the machine' influences.
If you like simplistic anti-capitalist lyrics then you'll love the lyrics here. Luckily, the vocals on this...

5.0 out of 5 stars Destroy!!!, 9 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Destroy The Opposition (Audio CD)
Dying Fetus are back with their latest mix of head-severing brutality and groove-laden mosh riffs to once again display the kind of state-of-the-art death-grind that makes them one of the best bands in the business. Musically, I wouldn't say this is a step up from their last two, but it is on par with those releases. And since this is their first release with any semblance of widespread U.S. distribution, this wasn't the right time to reinvent the wheel. Instead, it was time to show the world what Dying Fetus does best, and that's exactly what "Destroy the Opposition" succeeds in doing.
Though personally I'd still rank "Killing on Adrenaline" as their best CD, "Destroy" is a consistently strong slab of DF-style death metal. Lots of incredible and sudden speed changes: one second you're banging your head to a catchy groove, the next second you're being pummeled by a barrage of sick riffs and brutal blast beats.
The dual vocal attack is great as always. "Epidemic of Hate" features some of the most rhythmic and complex interchanges between the two styles (subterranean death growl and hair-raising shriek). And the lyrics, which describe the horrors of the world (such as our rapidly deteriorating democracy as wealth and power concentrates among a select few), are as frightening and disturbing as any ever written. In all, this is a top-notch release by one of the world's best bands in any genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding death metal, 28 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Destroy The Opposition (Audio CD)
Okay dying fetus are not a very well known band in the u.k. yet but if you havent heard them and you're into death metal don't delay. Whereas old acts such as Deicide have now gone stale and sound like they should pack it in, this music is inspired, intense. It takes a few listens to hear all thats going on because its pretty technical, but there is some incredible musicianship on dislay here. They got loads of new ideas which is definitely needed in this genre where there are so many mediocre bands around. Dying Fetus are one of the best death metal acts around now along with Cryptopsy, Nile and of course Napalm Death. D.F's other albums are superb also especially "Killing On Adrenaline" - not easy to get hold of here but seek 'em out if you can. Outstanding music.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best death metal albums to date, 3 April 2001

This album is the amazing, the double drum pedal makes the riffs sound even more amazing. I used to think cannibal corpse, deicide, six feet under etc.. were the masters of death metal, but it looks like they got some good competition comming up

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent album by one of the greatest death metal bands, 13 Aug 2013

This review is from: Destroy The Opposition (Audio CD)
Destroy the Opposition is simply a great album from Dying Fetus. This was the first album they wrote which was politically motivated, particularly in songs such as the title track Destroy the Opposition. All of the eight songs on this album are full of excellent riffs and lyrics along with fantastic vocals, guitar and bass work and the equally very good drum work. I like all of the songs on this album very much, but I do have my favourites which are the title track Destroy the Opposition; Praise the Lord (Opium of the Masses); Epidemic of Hate; Pissing in the Mainstream; and Justifiable Homicide.

Overall, Destroy the Opposition is a very good album and one that I would very highly recommend to anyone who likes such great music like this.

This album is the essence of brutality. Just listen to the opening song on this album and I guarantee you will be blown away! Death metal doesn't get much better, you need this in your collection or die in regret that you didn't give this a spin!
Now destroy ur speakers..

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quintessential Dying Fetus album... so far, 14 Jan 2007
This review is from: Destroy The Opposition (Audio CD)
This record is superb. Its laced with quality tracks; its so hard to pick a stand-out but the award goes to the title track because of the riff that comes in at around the 4 minutes mark. From start to finish, Dying Fetus make the art of writing catchy yet metal as Hell riffs look easy. The final track, Justifiable Homicide, for example, is laden with great riff after great beat. The album is based on continuity - awesome song after awesome song, without falling into monotony. The album is also blessed with good production, and that, combined with the music, make it a fairly accessible death metal record.

3.0 out of 5 stars America rocks., 2 Jun 2004

'Destroy the opposition' is very much a technical death metal record. As such, you would be right to expect something a little unusual and unexpected. The best way to describe this record is
as death metal with strong 'rage against the machine' influences.
If you like simplistic anti-capitalist lyrics then you'll love the lyrics here. Luckily, the vocals on this album are very deep
and growled, so if you avoid the inlay, you won't have to hear them. In fact, the vocals are absolutely top quality death, they really are faultless. Bass and drums rumble along very nicely. Nothing spectacular but great. The guitar work is interesting in that it incorporates the 'monster tapping' and 'sweep picking'
techniques to great effect in the rhythm passages. However, here lies the problem. This band badly need an extra guitarist to fill out the sound. The heaviness really suffers because of this minimalistic guitar work and it's a shame that such a solid vocal and rhythm section goes to waste sometimes. It actually sounds like the producer has faded out another guitarist by accident when mixing this album. All in all, this album is a very origional work by an extremely talented band.
