“Today Foetal Juice is proud to unveil the second single from their forthcoming album Gluttony, which will be released by Gore House Productions on June 12th.
Following in the wake of the rampaging title track comes ‘Metamorphosis’, an unstoppable bulldozer of a song that perfectly encapsulates the devastating power that Foetal Juice has harnessed on their latest release.
“Metamorphosis is about the mental transformation that any normal person can take if the right buttons are pressed. It’s basically a journey from normality into the kind of rage that makes people want to fight (seeing red). It’s loosely based on the personal experience of being wound up by people’s greed and selfishness. This links in really well with all of the shit that is going on at the minute all over the world. Selfish bastards have been going into shops and buying up more essential items then they are able to use. Leaving absolutely nothing for the more vulnerable and older people. “But that’s fine because we are alright,” kind of attitudes like that can really fuck up people in need. Especially in times like this when they need a bit of compassion. “
For fifteen years Foetal Juice has been carving their path through the underground, armed with black humour and sonic intensity, a death metal machine grinding the opposition into the mud, blood and bile. With Gluttony they have refined their songwriting prowess while simultaneously ramping up the power to dangerous levels.
Speaking about their forthcoming album, Foetal Juice have declared:
“It’s a lot faster, heavier and much more aggressive, both musically and lyrically than anything we have previously written” – and ‘Metamorphosis’ is the perfect example of exactly what they’re talking about. This track positively seethes with aggression, a boiling cauldron of wicked riffs and bad intent.
Enjoy ‘Metamorphosis’ and prepare yourself for the colossal impact of Gluttony on June 12th!”
Driven by insatiable, rapacious greed and a repulsive uncontrollable desire to consume, we strut towards our demise with poisoned minds and the grins of slavering fools plastered on our twisted faces. We walk through a paradise made hell, where humanity is the devil. Our desperate need to feed, to swallow every last remnant of Earth’s riches, force innocence and beauty into our stinking maw, choke every fragment of hope and kindness down our bleeding throat is madness beyond control. Like Belphegor or Beelzebub, we perch upon our thrones of shit and vomit, swathed in robes of fat and blood; resplendent in our idiocy and cruelty, emperors of filth and queens of self-destruction.
Holding up a mirror so we can gaze upon our pitiful visages are Foetal Juice, clowns in our court of grotesqueries, bards with bawdy ballads of truth and warped wisdom. New album Gluttony is the most aggressive explosion of bile drenched death metal that the band have ever discharged. Fifteen years of relentless riffs and black humour hasn’t calmed the creative lunacy of these self-proclaimed masters of absurdity one bit. Songs like the rampaging album closer ‘Spirit Leech’ are just unstoppable. The sheer power generated by these Mancunian maniacs is magnificent, but so is the quality of songwriting. While the blistering intensity of tracks like ‘Septic Mollusc’ hits like heavy artillery, deft touches and a fine sense of structure and timing makes these songs so much more than just a thrilling bombardment. Foetal Juice are at the top of their game and Gluttony is death metal from the very top tier, more than capable of taking on the biggest names in the genre – and winning.
“It’s a lot faster, heavier and much more aggressive, both musically and lyrically, than anything we have previously written” is what the band have said about Gluttony – and it’s impossible to argue. They just needed to add that Gluttony is also the finest album they have ever released. When Gore House Productions unleash this beast on June 12th you need to get your face out of the trough and start listening.
