5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest Death Metal albums of recent years
Dying Fetus are one of the very finest bands around at the moment who produce that very satisfying blend of technical Death Metal and Grindcore, creating something even more crushing than the sum of its parts. The opening track ‘Schematics’ starts with an awesome riff incorporating some wicked pinch harmonics (apologies if I’m getting a bit technical,...

2.0 out of 5 stars Hardly worth all that
This was the first dying fetus album i bought and i have to say that i was for from thrilled to hear middle classed music from supposedly a legendary death metal band. At first listen I admit I thought it was an awesome album because of the open set of riffs to each song which displayed their technical prowess and their ability to create songs that make you wnat to bang...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the finest Death Metal albums of recent years, 10 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Stop At Nothing (Audio CD)
Dying Fetus are one of the very finest bands around at the moment who produce that very satisfying blend of technical Death Metal and Grindcore, creating something even more crushing than the sum of its parts. The opening track ‘Schematics’ starts with an awesome riff incorporating some wicked pinch harmonics (apologies if I’m getting a bit technical, it’s a method of making a note squeal whilst playing it, for want of a better description) that sounds very reminiscent of the intro of ‘Becoming’ by Pantera. However, if you think Pantera are heavy (which they are, fairly) and are expecting something a bit similar, just wait until you listen to this album in full. The first clue that it might be something a bit out of the ordinary is the fact that it is released by Relapse Records, home of some of the most evil and deranged Death and Grindcore on the planet. If you’ve got a decently powerful stereo, I recommend cranking up the mid-paced section in the middle of the second song ‘One Shot One Kill’. There’s a strong danger it might take your head clean off your shoulders. The entire album is an awesome display of some of the finest extreme metal available today, and if you’re into bands of the ilk of Cryptopsy, Morbid Angel or Vader, you need to buy this album straight away. It combines the best elements of all of those bands and blends it into something even harder, faster, more controlled and even more crushing, and it is quite simply awesome.

Stop at Nothing is simply a fantastic album from Dying Fetus. Along with a lot of their other albums, this one features eight very good songs with great riffs, great dark vocals and guitar solos (the solos only appear in three of the eight songs on this album). I like all the songs on this album very much, but my favourites on it are Schematics; One Shot, One Kill; Institutions of Deceit; Abandon All Hope and of course the title track Stop at Nothing. Very highly recommended to any fan of great music like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hardly worth all that, 31 Dec. 2003

This review is from: Stop At Nothing (Audio CD)
This was the first dying fetus album i bought and i have to say that i was for from thrilled to hear middle classed music from supposedly a legendary death metal band. At first listen I admit I thought it was an awesome album because of the open set of riffs to each song which displayed their technical prowess and their ability to create songs that make you wnat to bang your head along to them. However after a few listens it grew very tiresome and quite frankly boring. First of all most of the time they will get a good riff going and then ruin it with a drum beat that slows it down to a snails pace (and although i like slow paced action) making it painfull to listen too. Another bad point i feel is that when they move from heavy pantera style riffs into proper death metal guitar scaling riffs, it doesnt fit at all. The shift from one to the other is pathetic and completely kills the pace of the song. And after all that the afor mentioned other riffs aren't exactly brilliant and pale in comparison to the riffs of Suffocation and Cryptopsy. But to give them credit some riffs in the album do hit the mark and save the album from being a mass of slow unimaginative trash. Vocal wise the album is not too bad. The sound the vocalists get is good and fits the style very well. They use death metal grunts and a more clean shouting sound. However once again all is not well in this department. The vocals are severely let down by the fact that they follow the guitar way to much. Instaed of making up intricate patterns over the riffs they have simply followed the pattern of the riff with their vocals.
If you are a newcomer to this scene don't go for this band go for Decapitated.
