I am really pumped for this new Suffocation album, Pinnacle Of Bedlam, set to be released on February 15, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records.
The band just released the first single off the album, and no surprise, it's a total crusher. Take a listen:
Even though this is the first album drummer Mike Smith hasn't played on since 1998's Despise the Sun EP, the band hasn't missed a step. Smith left the band a few months ago citing creative differences.
Frontman Frank Mullen sounds sharper than ever. A few months ago, Frank announced he can no longer commit to the band's full time touring schedule.
And those riffs! Those solos! This track is a perfect death metal track.
Metal Injection contributor Frank Huang recently posted three live clips of the band (with Mullen) playing Brooklyn, NY. Check those clips out here.
