War of Attrition is the fifth album by Dying Fetus. According to the album booklet, the album's lyrics were written solely by guitarist Mike Kimball. This album was praised by original fans due to its return to traditional Dying Fetus form. It was also their first self-produced album in nine years. Former co-vocalist Vince Matthews and former drummer Eric Seyanga departed in 2005 to form the band Covenance. Gallagher once again found a new member, drummer Duane Timlin.
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.
It's done completely by the book, it's processed to no end, and each song blends into each other. There's none of the ingenuity that marks other more integral Death Metal acts such as Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Demilich, Death, Immolation, or Incantation; here, every song is the same garbage, with the same "tech" riffs and the same chugalugachug chug on the guitars. The entire album reeks of abject sterility. Packing some of the driest production I've ever heard in a metal album, 'War Of Attrition' offers absolutely nothing that wasn't done better last decade. Yeah, the music is more technical, it's (I guess) faster, more artificially brutal, still has the breakdowns, etc. But it's missing one thing: PASSION.
Formed in 1991, Dying Fetus have now inaugurated their 6th album, War of Attrition, which still does not deviate far off their attempts to stay morally true to their musicianship, and still portrays their self-reliance. However, the band creates nothing too commercial and innovative, given that they focus on staying true to themselves
