Suffocation

Death metal band Suffocation was formed in New York in the early '90s, comprising vocalist Frank Mullen, guitarists Doug Cerrito and Terrance Hobbs, bassist Chris Richards, and drummer Mike Smith. The group's 1991 debut album, Effigy of the Forgotten, became quite influential in the grind/death metal community. Released on Roadrunner Records, it was followed two years later by Breeding of the Spawn. After the issue of the Human Waste EP, Smith left Suffocation and was replaced by drummer Doug Bohn. By 1995, the second lineup had released their first album, Pierced from Within. The band broke up soon after, disheartened by label problems and lack of direction. A mystery album, Despise the Sun, floated around due to record label politics until Relapse finally released it in the summer of 2002. The band re-formed in 2003 and began working on their fourth studio album. The resulting Souls to Deny, which marked the return of original drummer Mike Smith, was released the following year, and effectively ended the group's six-year hiatus. Suffocation's eponymous fifth outing arrived in 2006, and was followed in 2009 by Blood Oath, which marked the band's first official entry in the Billboard charts. Pinnacle of Bedlam, the group's seventh studio album, arrived in 2013. ~ John Bush, Rovi

I hate the state of new york. There's too many n**gers there.
Suffocation rule the death metal world!!!!!
I love the sound of this band. Blood oath is awesome. I prefer them over cannibal corpse and the like.
Frank is cool as s**t. Suffocation gets down. I got hauled out of a pit at an atx show for stage diving but Frank set em straight and told em to let me stay. Hell yeah NYDM!!
I thought Human Waste was their first album.....
Whatever I'm not going anywhere. If I feel like it I'll comment. now leave me alone you case of s**t.
@jlcrowe84. Wow. For someone who listens to metal, you are quite the p u s s y a s s douche. Do you sit and search peoples comments so then you can go add your pathetic garbage? Get a life. Stay off of here you sensitive little b i t c h. I can say whatever the f u c k I so choose. I have not directed my comments at one single person except for right now being you.
oh man such hate i thought the 80s and 90s were done with music hate if its not your cup of tea dont make everyone miserable as you are about it i think a lot of metal genres are great idc if its deathcore metalcore Nu-Metal grindcore thrash metal hardcore crossover its still metal in my book i even love grunge but idc if any of ya bash on me cuz music runs in my veins and nothing will stop that till the day i die long live metal in all genres
I was just a kid when it was all getting started but all i knew growing up was f**king metal. whats f**king stupid f**ked up, people started thinking Morbid Angel sold out signing to Geffen but now claim those albums are classic. there is always gonna be new s**t coming out basket case. i like Emmure and The Accacia Strain for names that you'll probably recognize if you've peeked your head out the window in the last many years. you should show these types of new bands the same respect
piece of junk bet you were in diapers. meet NECROWX basketcase. 84 b**ch year i got into music, by the 90's i had seen what you claim we havn't. it's a shame kids now didn't have a chance to witness PANTERA. i saw a lot of bands that you'd think were cool. and seen a lot of shows you talk of the time. your an idiot. right about being original because of Mike Smith's drum style. blast beat, he perfected with they're music well. that's all.
% casket case
@Casket Case: Do Not Talk To Kids Like That, Fool.
I wasn't specifically talking to you Lone Wolf but thanks for taking offense. Glad you got your 2 cents in. Douche Bag.
Suffocation is one of the original American death metal bands back when it all started along with such bands as Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Morbid Angel, and Obituary. I'm sure most of you fools were still in diapers or not even alive yet. Whoever puts this band in any other category but straight up death metal are f**king fools. Deathcore and Metalcore didn't even exist when Suffo started which was in 1988.
huh..uhh
Metalcore was good before post-hardcor e bands began i.ding themselves as metalcore, deathcore is great (has more that two good bands) Death Metal is amazing. BTW some modern technical death metal bands went through deathcore phases
Suffocation has always been the kings of death metal and are still killing !!!! "Death is only everlasting" I f**king love it!!!
Ahh I'm going crazy heree \m/
Metalcore sucks bro sorry to say. And you need to really take time to understand the intricacy that goes into the music, its been around as long as it has for a reason...
I can't understand the vocals at all.

By the way people, no need to bash on metalcore.
preisigdiego
Metal core sucks, death core has like 2 good bands in the whole genre, death metal reigns supreme
You guys are throwing around the words metal core like that's what suffocation influenced?? ? ? ? More like grindcore and death core, I hear way more suicide silence than I do killswitch engage when I listen to suffocation
I agree Mr D. Thats exactly what I said...metal core bands are heavily influenced by suffocation
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
saldivar262 thinks this band influenced others..yeah maybe but way before them were the likes of Slayer, Celtic Frost, Death and Venom. I enjoy this band but they only contributed to the metal core. Metal Forever!!!



<3
Oh you youngsters getting blown away by suffocation. . . . i t s understandab l e . . . y o u won't hear anything like this anywhere. Suffocation has their sound....che c k out all their albums...yes ALL....you'l l see...they'v e always been way ahead of their time. I my opinion....s u f f o c a t i o n influenced the metal core bands...they were doing breakdowns a looong time before metalcore .
is it just me or is the only word you can understand in these types of songs without reading the lyrics f**k?
I've never heard of these guys, but I'm listening to Suspended in Tribulation right now, and it's pretty sick. This is why Pandora is awesome.
Check out my stations.
ALWAYS AWESOME !!

Just saw Suffocation 2/10/13 in Trenton. Will be going back for more in PA in April. And stop all the racist BS! It's sooo f**king old and lame. Metal is for anyone who can take it. Not sure why some people think blacks can't like GREAT music. \m/(-_-)\m/
F**K all the racist s**t in the scene. Terrence hobbs is the MAN!
Yes.
Been Laid E'rday! I'm going to get my homeboy D to drop a beat. lmfao
McTague97... L o o k i n g at your face I can only imagine the b**ch that would spread her cheese lined thighs for...that.
iankouf82
liquidskills : all of them are excellent.
Been laid everyday and I never said I'm not a troll. I troll because it's fun and because you guys absorb every word I say and get so angry that you respond. Some of the bands I troll I actually like, this isn't one of them.
McTague97 claims he's not a troll...but he seems to post something negative on every single metal band's page that I go to. McTague97... y o u need to get laid or something. Seriously. How do you run your own diner if you're on here posting, wasting your time? You seem so negative, I wouldn't want to eat at your diner...you probably don't care about what goes on in your kitchen...je e z .
I wish they would suffocate.
N**GERS have there place in HELL with all of us Hail SATAN..
amsoilrep
No, Gus,Derek and Frank are white
There not all black are they?? Oh and their best album is Effigy of the Forgotten.
i liked em but pierced from within made me love em!
Jsprague1498
Why don't they?
@jsprague149 8 you are an ignorant f*ck. these guys helped invent death metal as you and i know it, so, unless you're just a troll, you have no idea what you're talking about. i challenge you to walk up to them and tell them that. i'd love to see the mayhem that ensues.
they are great but n**gers have no place in death metal
whats thier best album?
Just saw this band live on long island they were freakin awesome..gre a t performers.. .
Suffocation are one of my all-time favorite bands. Amazing quality on all their albums and their live album from Quebec city is outstanding. Legends in my opinion.
