Sound — 7
For "Stop At Nothing" Dying Fetus sound took a large change from their previous album "Destroy The Opposition". John Gallagher (guitar/vocals) remains the only original member and a new lineup consisting of Mike Kimball (guitar), Vince Matthews (vocals), Sean Beasley (bass) and Eric Seyanga (drums) gives fetus a new sound and different direction. "Stop At Nothing" is more of a grindcore album then their previous release but still has many elements of death metal and technical death metal.
Lyrics — 7
Their lyrics continue to remain political and fit the music perfectly. Vince Matthews has a unique voice but arguably not as good as previous member Jason Netherton (who now does bass/vocals for the band Misery Index). John Gallagher vocals on this album continues to be low, brutal guttural vocals and is arguably the epitome of death metal vocals.
Overall Impression — 7
This album is lacking in comparison to Dying Fetus' previous release "Destroy The Opposition", taking a different approach but still leaving quality deathgrind and technical aspects of previous albums. Some great songs that stand out in this album include: "Schematics", "One Shot, One Kill", "Forced Elimination" and "Stop At Nothing". This album has an great combination of brutality and technicality however it lacks the death/grind groove of previous albums. If I lost it I would buy it again (if I could find it).
