Steve Dallaire of Boulevard Brutal recently conducted a video interview with drummer Trey Williams of Maryland extreme metallers DYING FETUS in Jonquiere, Quebec, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.

DYING FETUS‘ latest album, “Reign Supreme”, sold around 3,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 186 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 5 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

DYING FETUS‘s previous collection of original material, “Descend Into Depravity”, opened with around 2,700 units to land at No. 166.

Released on June 19, 2012 via Relapse Records, “Reign Supreme” was recorded at Wrightway Studios in Baltimore with longtime producer Steve Wright (SLIPKNOT, MISERY INDEX). It will feature nine tracks and is “a ‘return to roots,’ with production focused slightly more on slam than in the band’s last few works,” according to a press release. “Thematically, the album is set to be a good old-fashioned piece of social and political commentary in the style of DYING FETUS as we have come to know.”

Commented DYING FETUS guitarist/vocalist John Gallagher: “The last album had some groove in it, but [it] was basically a lot of tech; this one is a return to form of older DYING FETUS albums, so to speak — more modern production, though, of course. Everything’s tight, the sound is crushing, the drums are amazing.”

Trev “Sin City Animal” McKendry of Metal Nation Radio recently conducted an interview with drummer Flo Mournier and vocalist Matt McGachy of Canadian extreme metallers CRYPTOPSY. You can now listen to the chat using the widget below.

CRYPTOPSY reunited with its original vocalist Lord Worm to perform a medley of tracks from the band’s 1994 debut album, “Blasphemy Made Flesh”, during an appearance at the eighth edition of the Amnesia Rockfest on June 15 in Montebello, Quebec, Canada.

CRYPTOPSY parted ways with Lord Worm (a.k.a. Dan Greening) in April 2007. No reason was given for Lord Worm‘s departure, but according to guitarist Alex Auburn, the vocalist was “kicked out” of the band and didn’t leave of his own accord (an account later disputed by Lord Worm).

The self-titled album from CRYPTOPSY was released in the U.S. on November 20, 2012 via Cryptopsy/Defen Society in association with Revolution Harmony/Candlelight Records.
