Also the more outspoken Hardcore bands like Youth Of Today, Agnostic Front, Minor Threat, etc. were unknown for me back then. Only later I started to dig in the earlier history of Hardcore. But never I was really into all those Metal bands or genres.
|Dying Fetus "Destroy The Opposition" LP|
|Back cover tells us Good Life Recordings once cooperated with Relapse Records|
Today for the first time I gave this record a good attentive listen and yes, it worked for me. I appreciate the technical skills, the vocal precision and brutality. But hell yeah, such a good album overall. These songs are catchy, yet more difficult than the average Hardcore song. The intro alone is pure genius. I don't specialize in Metal and all the sub-genres but I can safely say this is Death Metal greatness! Must be the first time I can enjoy a Metal masterpiece.
I remember a colleague telling me he saw Dying Fetus in the youth house of my birth town and that he found it really good. So now I can relate finally.
|clear and solid blue vinyl, both colors versions of this LP|
In my quest to build up a decent Good Life label collection I am still surprised by the musical quality the bands from their roster deliver. Especially with this Dying Fetus LP from the year 2000. I never really thought I would find a copy of this album on blue vinyl. I was actually searching eBay for other titles, but somehow I got distracted and started looking into a random Belgian seller's items. I saw some Nirvana records but was actually not so interested. But suddenly I realized that this one was up there.
I don't know the pressing numbers but there's a few of the clear one on Discogs, while a blue version is never sold up there. So the blue versions seems a lot rarer. I guess we will never know...
