South Park, now in its 23rd season is either the best it's ever been or way past its prime, depending on who you speak to. But, it still draws 1.4 million viewers, and last week's season premiere was the most watched cable comedy this year. Which is to say, Dying Fetus and French thrash band Death Decline got some incredible exposure last night on the show.
Their music was used as part of the plot of the show. Stan starts a death metal band named "Crimson Dawn" after being disillusioned by his dad's neglect. In typical South Park fashion, the neglect by his dad ,Randy, is due to Randy being so consumed with his weed farm. This is where Dying Fetus' music comes in. Here are the two parts of the episode where death metal is played. The first performance features Death Decline's music. In the second, Dying Fetus' music is played:
Eventually, Stan's band gets signed and the label tries to cater them to the Chinese market, so they get quite a makeover. You'll have to watch the episode to see how it ends but congrats to DF for the feature. They shared a post on social media about it this morning.
Here are the actual songs that Stan's band played.
Thanks for the tip, Chuck
