Few bands can be credited with creating a legacy, however, legendary
New York based extreme metal outfit SUFFOCATION have done just that.
For 20 years now SUFFOCATION have been creating music that has
become the very standard by which we judge all things extreme.
Their fusion of technicality, groove and sheer unrelenting brutality has been imitated but never quite duplicated. Milestone records such as Effigy of the Forgotten, Pierced from Within, and Despise the Sun have influenced a wealth of today’s best musical talents. With the release of SUFFOCATION’s Nuclear Blast debut Blood Oath, their legacy of unrelenting and unique heaviness continues for perhaps the genres greatest band!
Technical metal with classical melodies from the South West (UK).

"If you're into one or all of thrash, death, black, and heavy metal; this covers each so perfectly and with such apparent ease that it's hard to see why everyone wouldn't dig this." - Zero Tolerance Magazine
"Man, you guys are old school as SHIT" - Isaac from Blood Incantation
