about

Death metal powerhouse Dying Fetus return with their long-awaited new record War of Attrition. Masterminded by guitarist/vocalist John Gallagher and his hand picked kill-team, War of Attrition advances the band’s devastating assault and destroys everything in its path. From the first song to the last, the patented 'Fetus combination of punishing slam riffs, frenzied guitar work, and utterly savage dual-vocal assault and overpowers the listener. War of Attrition reaches an altogether new and focused level of brutality for Dying Fetus, and expands and cements the legendary status of this renowned US metal institution.

Track Name: Homicidal Retribution
Lost my faith in justice
Time does not heal this pain
Defiled my existence
Recurring nightmare
There's no consolation
The awful memories
Constant mind coercion
Instinctive vengeance
I have nothing left to loose now
Only time, regret and anger
Pain to last a hundred lifetimes
Hatred burning, love extinct
Compound insult of bullshit humanism
Misplaced rights, inflame my rage
Vacant cause, offender the victim
Fuck that worthless piece of shit
As long as you live on this earth
Rage unsatisfied
Memories dishonored
Retribution!!!
Giving hardened criminals
Preferential treatment
Settlement, live in prison
Better than you deserve
Jury of your peers, unable to do the job
Obliged by procedure, evidence examination
Now I'm coming for you, there will be no mistrial
Citizen retaliation, the mode of your demise
Moral speculation, some other poor bastard's life
The system has fucked up, left this hollow void
There will be no comfort, this sickness is terminal
Semblance of justice, infuriating lies
Lies arquitted, guilt answered, you will not escape
Cold, my revenge and my blood
Hate, nothing can stop it now
Death, the only end I accept
Hell, punishment I require
Curse, execrate, I must kill
Pain, I inflict merciless
Scream, piercing cries, agony
You should have pled guilty or killed yourself
Unshakable conviction, is all I have to live for
Excruciating terror, the violations you delight in
Useless human excrement, you deserve a life of shit
Make you suffer ruthlessness, I cannot relinquish the honor
Soul I condemn, fucking dead
Nothing will ever be made right again
The path of damnation I hasten you on my way
Every day you lived from then is one more day you owe me
If killing you destroys myself, I wouldn't have it any other way
Fine line between honor and horror, my every action justified
Innocence destroyed, needs anguish to cleanse impurity
Temporary insanity, obeys a singular purpose
Your death row is here and now, the only righteous ending
Die and die again, as I cut and mutilate
You are fucking worthless, I don't give a fuck about you
Blood your insides spayed, placates my hostility
End my days a killer, stripped of everything that mattered
Track Name: Fate Of The Condemned
The thrust of fascist war campaigns
Inspire my will to disobey
Adversary to the end
Wielding all the wrath of hell
Rattling your diminutive saber
Jeopardizing sovereignty
Power trip of the smallest power
We can always use a new war
Peaceful religious tolerance
Ends in frightening violence
Every plot we uncover
Fuels the fire of our hatred
Exploitation, attrition
Ignoble death, hostile enmity
Owed far worse than what will befall
Real life bleeds the loser dry
Coming to crush your domination
Next life, not the one you expected
Crap religious politics brought me
Guilt-free murder, my reward
Dismantling the old ways, enslaving the opposition
Better than the justice they deserve, feeding frenzy mayhem
Life or death, survival, the rest is all bullshit
Delight in the kills I make along the way
Dead religious fascists, mutilated terrorists
Butchering thousands, genocide, annihilation
I am Armageddon, the bringer of death
Decades of stalemate, coming to an end
Patience long gone, miscalculated tolerance
You fucked up, a fight you cannot finish
Begging to die, stupidity will kill you
Natural order, second-class citizens
Given to slavery, inflame my predatory instincts
Chosen way of life, rejects of civilization
Troublesome cancer, posed for elimination
Militants on our own soil, burned away to maintain order
Nothing to prevent us from killing foreign extremists
Violent dissidents we butcher and incinerate
Lowest on the food chain, they deserve to be slaughtered
Killing for a living
Fuck your fucking politics
Something you did brought me here
Praying for war
Die by my hand
Hardened by hate, mindless attacks
There is no god helping you now
Matter of time, you will fall
When a nation can't keep it's shit together
We will always be called to exterminate enemy factions
No question, this must be done
Plenty of reasons to fuck them up
Atrocious mayhem. conspicuous danger
Ruthless people deserve what they get
Who gives a fuck what happens to them
Satisfaction, multiplied revenge
Condemn your squandered soul
Track Name: Raping The System
Criminal justice system of flaws
Blatant corruption
Repercussions, higher profit
An addiction
The obvious signs of guilt
Sloppy investigation
A bullshit fucking plea
Engineered process
Mishandled evidence unpreserved
Fabricated vindication
Diligence only an illusion
Mitigated, facade of lies
Inundated and ingrained, relentless conditioning
Media, legislation, selling a bent truth sensation
Gorging on the spectacle, "reality" TV
Victims of exploitation, selling out the children
Celebrity and power, attract public bias
Fortitude in decay, swollen avarice
Pedophiles, molesters, murderers set free
When they fail to win, the case falls to settlement
Exposing private perversions, humiliation and disgrace
Destroyed credibility, scamming on both sides
Spending millions to save face, and escape consequence
Attempt to evoke sympathy, inflating reasonable doubt
Lobbyist entitlement, litigation bondage
Egocentric apathy, fraudulent at heart
Judicial prejudice, preferential treatment
Witnesses of falsehood, conviction overturned
Humiliation, concealment and deception
Overexposure of the feeding frenzy
The inspiration to rape the system
Fallen morals, unanswered capital crimes
Circus of reporting, playing up the tragedy
Tainted media opinion, too blind to know the truth
Singular pursuit of profit, seeing what they want to see
Public speculation, slanted sympathies
Tied up in the costly litigation
Overwhelm the prosecution
Truth obscured with stall tactic motions
Trite protection of the guilty
Rats on the grift, indecent intention
Fighting for acquittal and vulgar fame
Quota of scapegoats and distractions
Nonexistent fear of authority
Suffering... Unending... Travesty...
Prejudice... Ignorance... Vanity...
Gold-digging legal battles
Symptom of a lawsuit-crazy nation
Semblance of due diligence
Devious manipulation and omissions
Law enforcement countermanded, weakness of the state
Fucking sheep with bleeding hearts, for no noble cause
No remorse for the victims, preying on the uninformed
Who is held accountable, spectacle of greed
Idiots bringing suit, no matter how absurd
Fabricated testimony, power twisted justice
Public interest in the freak show illustrates the sickness
Privileges of exception, turns to bought freedom
Inundated and ingrained, motions of brute force
Legal rights disintegration, disappearing privacy
Gorging on the spectacle, "reality" TV
Failure of the system, no guilty, but no innocent
Celebrity and power, attract public bias
Setting a precedent, tainting the future
Pedophiles, molesters, freed upon society
Murderers let loose to find their next victim
Track Name: Insidious Repression
Faces the generation reduced to vacant stares
Heads filled with TV static, buying its shallow lies
Jaded passionless whores, raping the desires of all
Dark intentions luring, false sense of security
I protect this sickness, as I watch in disdain
Their disease I guard
This bastardized American dream
State sponsored psychosis, burned in mass consumption
Every gallon wasted
Is ten more soldiers I must kill
Symptoms of consumption
Appetite for self-destruction
Free thought extinguished
Reign of dull complacency
Compulsive over-indulgence
Media-trained responses
Policy accommodations
Enraging our enemies
Incompetence facilitates attacks on native soil
Misdirection, weak responses, future wars encouraged
[SOLO: Gallagher]
Refusal to resist the conditioning
Calculated flaws build dependency
Shallow fulfillment, relentless pursuit
The emptiness will never be satisfied
Culture of corpulence, overextended
Inflated existence, perpetuating conquest
Worldwide deployment to maintain control
Quelling backlashes of outrage
Fighting the next face of terror
Prepared for each new conflict
You might as well submit
Track Name: Unadulterated Hatred
Cold rage festers in my black earth, blind provoked by your hypocrisy
Boastful menace vain disrespect, violent conflict is unavoidable
Veins on fire with lust to kill, locked intention, mind of obliteration
I I can't wait to bathe in your blood, to destroy your ignorance

Someone goes down, too long endured, mindless tension it, must end now

FRUSTRATION EXHAUSTED PATIENCE, NO CHANCE CAN'T DEFEAT ME
ARROGANCE HAS BLINDED YOU, WROUGHT WITH UNMASKED DISDAIN
VAIN THREATS, TOLERATED TOO LONG, NOW YOU DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE
LOST MY, FEAR ATTACK IN ANGER, ONCE MY, FRIEND YOU ARE MY ENEMY
NO WAY TO RETRACT YOUR FAITH

When I finally snap it's over, stomping out your fucking
Nothing but a vile infection, misery released
My bare hands become my weapons, killing with demonic wrath
You amount to less than nothing, why should you go on?

Morbid, hate transcends, murderous rage takes me
Violent obsession, cruelty, unrelenting, damage, aggression
Bludgeoning, overcome, worthless, piece of shit, execute, no remorse

SPEND YOUR LIFE A LOWLY THUG, GETTING OFF ON OTHERS PAIN
SCUMBAG DIE, INCUR STREET JUSTICE, FAVOR TO SOCIETY
YOU'VE GIVEN ME SO MANY REASONS TO EXPLODE TEAR YOU TO PIECES
INCLINED TO WAR, BECOME YOUR PAIN, THIS IS WHAT YOU GET

I will be there as you die, you brought forth my worst abomination
Don't hear you, talking shit now, victim of your own ignorance
Your suicidal conflict, you pick the wrong motherfucker to fuck with
Better off dead, you'll be forgotten, annihilate your pathetic existence

Unadulterated hatred, as I rip your fucking face off
Unadulterated hatred, no regret can't change what I've done
Ultimate end obliteration

Uncontrolled hostile blood lust, grim instincts of destruction
Cold adrenaline, violent aftermath, hate filled soul
Dark intentions, sickening satisfaction
Track Name: The Ancient Rivalry
The distortions of history, barriers from original truth
Man-made distance, accounts of time fog
TEMPORAL OBSCURITY, MISINFORMATION

Fear and ignorance built a religion, exploit seasons of discontent
Relentless war, revenge set in motion
RADICAL PROPAGANDA, ENEMIES OF PROGRESS

Turn back the clock, 8th century
BACKWARD THINKING MORONS, PERPETUAL BATTLE

Fear of losing control of morality
FOSTERING INTOLERANCE, BREEDING PERSECUTION
Too many problems, to get involved
FUCK THE MIDDLE EAST, NOTHING'S EVER GOING TO CHANGE

Impatience with the changing times
LAST RESORT OF VIOLENCE, THE FIRST AND ONLY METHOD

Killing for religion, horror and shameful tyranny
Inquisitions and war crusades
A SHORT-LIVED EMBARRASSMENT OF COLD DARK AGES

Ignorance of the dusty regions, still have not found enlightenment
Occupied by belligerent jihad
FOSTERING A WAY OF LIFE, NO PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE

Impetus of suicide, LIVING FOR A SUDDEN DEATH
Embellished reward, IMAGINARY THREAT
Irrational destruction, PREJUDICE SOLIDIFIED
Earthly hope abandoned, PRESUMED FOR GOD'S WILL
Emptiness consumes you, VACANT AND FRUSTRATED
Wondering why your world, OF SHIT NEVER CHANGES
Young, dumb, expendable, BRAINWASHED TO FOLLOW ORDERS
Seeing nothing, knowing nothing, fuck it all

ECHOING MANTRA THERE IS NO ESCAPE, CHOOSING A LESSER BITTERNESS
NEGATIVE OUTLOOK OF BLINDED EYES, YOU MADE YOUR WORLD A PRISON
UNWITTING SOLDIERS FILLED WITH LIES, LUST FROM HEAVEN, ESCAPE FROM HELL
UNCIVILIZED INTOLERANCE, EXTREMIST VIEWS ARE DOOMED TO FAIL

Violence, secretarian conflict, obstinates fallacies, unredeemed by time
Fighting a war, that cannot be won, repression of the many by the few
Marridom, is an illusion, mass produced sacrifice, stripped of all nobility
Stubborn pride, in a losing situation, you are already, fucked for life

Throwing lives away, achieving nothing, driving up the death toll, glorified mass murder
Tiresome waste, for thousands of years, useless, impotent, stagnant

When we come to fuck you up, there is no persecution
Conquest and self-preservation, MIGHT IS RIGHT FOR SLAUGHTER

Unevolve society, fatal flaw eternal
Humankind does not obey, THE STENCH OF OPPRESSION
Track Name: Parasites Of Catastrophe
LIVES DESTROYED, THE CITY IN SHAMBLES, NOTHING COULD, PREPARE US FOR THIS
TORN APART, REMAINS SQUATTERED ABOUT, MISERY, CRUEL, HARDSHIP, UNENDING
SETTLING SCORES, CONFLICTS ERUPTS, VIOLENT EXCHANGE OF SMALL ARMS FIRE
LOCAL DISGRACE, DESPERATE GANG WAR, DISRESPECTFUL PIECE OF SHIT

Stained patience, high tension, broken faith, aid unreliable
Dirty and decrepit, rising hate, criminal fantasies
Fulfilling base instinct, dejected, orgy of the sick

THUGS OF ALL COLORS, REVEL IN CHAOS, VULGAR DISPLAY OF RUTHLESSNESS

Agency mismanagement, BUREAUCRATIC SINKHOLE
Nauseating expense, MINUSE, MANIPULATION
Profit without conscience, DISASTER WHETS THEIR APPETITE
Gross inflation of the contracts, COMMON VILE, PYRAMID SCAMS

Machination, commerce of calamity, thievery, violated trust

Insult, robbing the poor, negligent, inherent dishonor

Capital fraud compounds the tragedy, desperation that everyone's exploits
Escalating indignity and suffering, every level filled with red tape
Hollow greed reign of incompetence, responsibility disowned
Chasing in the wake of disasters, parasites of catastrophe

FIRE UPON THE LOOTERS LIKE THE HATEFUL RATS THEY ARE
RIDDANCE OF THE SQUATTERS WHO CARE NOTHING FOR REBUILDING
INDICT THE ONES EXPLOITING US, CONVICT THE FUCKING CRIMINALS
RISING FROM THE MIRE OF RUIN, REIGN IN THE CHAOS TAKE CONTROL

Corruption and incompetence, ALWAYS PRESENT HUMAN PLAGUE
Senseless inefficiency, MILLIONS PISSED AWAY
Institutional arrogance, TERRITORY WAR
Track Name: Obsolete Deterrence
All tyrants are created equal, defined by paranoia
Power through, ruthless action, no one dares defy

Diametric opposition, rules of engagement
Central fallacy of global conflict
Force to annihilate, reserved for cold war
Trapped within race arms inertia

RESURRECT A PARADOX, BALANCE OF TERROR
TIME ALREADY WASTED

Foolish tyrant pride, belligerent hard line
Militant delusion, struggle for domination
REPUGNANT PROVOCATION, THREATS OF MASS DESTRUCTION

Narcissistic rage, terrorist ambition
Imminent delivery, rampant devastation
HOLY MURDER LIES, HATRED PASSED THROUGH GENERATION

ESCALATION UNRESTRAINED, DESOLATE FUTURE WORLD

Mutual, assured destruction
Dangerous inexperience
Weariness, acceptance of the absurd
Catastrophe, escaped by chance

Disarment, unable to achieve
The peaceful cease fire will never last
Dirty weapon, discarded over time
Proliferated to, forgotten nation
Wielding power, beyond their comprehension
Proof of the past, bitterness unheeded
Vulgar display, late acquisition
Initiate, your self-destruction

Willingness to die, child's destructive impulse
World attention gained, nothing will remain
BASIC CONTRADICTION, OF A USELESS WEAPON

Attack without survival, no fear of reprisal
Weapons long abandoned, obsolete deterrence
TERROR INNUTILES, PRACTICAL RELIANCE

THE PENDULUM OF HISTORIES, FOREVER OSCILLATES
SIDE EFFECTS REVERBERATE, ON ALL THE EARTH
RELIGIOUS HATE CRIMES, OR POWER MAD TAUNTS
FUNDAMENTAL INFAMY, THAT NO GOD EVEN CARES FOR
HABITUAL VIOLENCE, SOCIETAL PARALYSIS
POWER RUNS OUT, REJECTED BY THE WORLD

Forces of regression, uncivil dogmatic rage
Forsaken by all, insane and immortal
Alone in the endless sand, of the accursed earth
Primitive tribal, retaliation, until the end of time
