Suffocation have always been where technicality and brutality collided, a maelstrom of chaos where a cacophony of riffs and drums create a devastatingly violent force. Their early works are frequently mentioned among the finest death metal albums of all time. Suffocation is a band who more often than not get harshly judged by fans and critics for their apparent failure to live up to expectations, expectations so high that even their contemporaries would find it challenging to match the veracity of Suffocation in full flight, such is the punch their debut album ‘Effigy Of The Forgotten’ had over 25 years ago. Its mark on the underground metal scene can be still felt to this day in many brutal death metal and deathcore bands. It is the blueprint for brutality in extremism.
With ‘…Of The Dark Light’, Suffocation do not necessarily break any new ground but they have perfected the knack for effortlessly executing their craft. They know what to do and without any messing about they get straight down to business. The album is a solid, and straightforward addition to their back catalogue. The album contains all of the hallmarks of a Suffocation album and when they lock into a groove of dominating riffs and crushing triplets, the staccato effect is cataclysmic to the senses. Managing to avoid mediocrity and setting themselves apart from the pack.
Today we are stoked to premiere an exclusive video in which the band discusses their ultimate DEATH METAL supergroup. WAIT NO MORE!
