Legendary artist Mark Riddick’s death metal band FETID ZOMBIE reveals new full length info

Everyone is aware of Mark Riddick‘s artworks. He’s a legend in the underground and has an unmistakable style that has inspired hordes of artists. A lesser known fact is that he’s been busy since a decade and a half with his death metal band Fetid Zombie and has put out about a couple dozen releases already, including six full length albums. Musically, it’s rooted in the classic old school death metal style with it also being dark and atmospheric and boasting of some of the foulest vocals. You can check out one of the songs from the upcoming release that’s uploaded on the label’s official channel HERE

Death metal band Fetid Zombie is the brainchild of the legendary artist Mark Riddick. An unstoppable force in the underground, Riddick has put out dozens of releases, mostly splits with bands from around the world, in addition to releasing six full length albums. It’s been five years since the release of his last full length ‘Epicedia’ which came out on the same label, and now Riddick has once again teamed up with some extremely talented musicians to fulfill his vision of dark and atmospheric death metal that is rooted in the classic heavy metal sound. Contrary to the one-dimensional and predictable songwriting of most of the current bands, Fetid Zombie‘s songs are impeccably structured, with there being excellent contrasting passages, be it melodic flashes or slower, heavier hooks, flurry of leads or just some transcendental atmospheric part, all of which work beautifully against the backdrop of deep, guttural growls and stellar death metal riffing. This is a passionate and memorable death metal album that pushes the boundaries of the rigid genre in its own way, and it’s one you’ll keep coming back to because of its timeless value and flawless execution.
