Dying Fetus @ O2 Academy3, Birmingham

Dying Fetus. The mere mention of their name is enough to put most people off. However to those who can see the beauty in death metal they are the top dogs, exceeded only by perhaps their New York brothers Cannibal Corpse.

metal all day


Whoever says that the metal music scene is dead in Cardiff need to stop applying their eyeliner and take a minute to go and support the huge amount of local talent around the south Wales area, who regularly play Cardiff! One event that brought a handful of these bands together was the ’15 Die A Day’ all-dayer which took place ...
