"I really admire Hip-Hop & R'n'B-drummers"
Trey Williams - drummer of Dying Fetus
Actually that's a pretty standard phrase. But this quote is coming from Trey Williams, drummer for one of the most legendary Brutal/Technical Death Metal Bands: Dying Fetus.
Trey was kind enough to talk to my partner in crime, Philip. He did the interview alone as I wasn't able to be there due to health-problems.
See Trey talking about what still pisses him off, his opinion on U.S. politics, his inspirations, touring, and his down-to-earth opinion about the whole "Loudness-War".
Dying Fetus is a technical/brutal death metal band from Maryland.
The band has released legendary, influencial death-metal records with Killing on Adrenaline (1998) and Destroy the Opposition (2000) - those records are now being re-released by their record label Relapse. Since then, Dying Fetus are renowned for their combination of extreme death metal music and politically and socially critical lyrics.
With their current album, Descend into Depravity, the band has managed to raise their fanbase significantly.
They furthermore were able to stabilize their line-up, as they had to go through a lot of line-up changes in the past.
Dying Fetus are currently headlining the Bonecrusher-Fest, alongside Keep of Kalessin, Carnifex, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Burning the Masses and Angelus Apatrida.
