Today marks the arrival of Dying Fetus' eighth album Wrong One to Fuck With, the death metal mainstays' first new full length in more than five years. The Maryland outfit are promoting the release in typical goofy fashion, with a hilarious fake commercial for Gallagher, Williams, Beasley & Associates, the band's very own death metal law firm.
The 53-second clip channels the corny spirit of other TV spots advertising attorneys-for-hire, with dramatic shots of Dying Fetus arguing in the courtroom, appearing on cable television, and — of course — posing for an awkward group photo in a stuffy office. "Have you participated in a justifiable homicide?" the ad asks, before listing some potential causes for kvlt litigation (qualifying cases include, but are not limited to, blunt force trauma, gruesome impalement, skullfuckery and a simple desire for vengeance). Kooky as the clip's narration may be, it's the band's photoshopped smiles that truly drive the hilarity home. Needless to say, Gallagher, Williams, Beasley & Associates are the wrong ones to fuck with. See for yourself below.
Dying Fetus will support Wrong One to Fuck With with a co-headlining spot on this year's Summer Slaughter tour, which also features the Black Dahlia Murder (playing 2007's Nocturnal LP in full), Oceano, Slaughter to Prevail, Origin, Rings of Saturn, Betraying the Martyrs and Lorna Shore. The trek kicks off July 27 and wraps up August 26.
