If you follow Suffocation on Facebook, this image should be familiar to you. The band posted this photo announcing they've completed recording a new album, The Pinnacle of Bedlam due out in 2013. The band also teased a "bonus DVD." It's unkown whether this is the long-rumored documentary the band has discussed previously, or something else completely. In a recent interview, bassist Derek Boyer revealed some info about the album's concept:
It’s a concept album based loosely on the ‘Tibetan Book Of The Dead’. We didn’t wanna just throw a bunch of different concepts, we wanted to try to work together as a band and write something that had a theme. And I think we’re really in the right direction with this one.”
“It’s always interesting when you record a record. If you’re conscious, maybe you can channel the energy into a sole product where we’re all, like, ‘Let’s just do whatever,’ and it still comes out great. But we pretty much tried to hone it in and tried to work on a concept album.
There you go! New Suffo in 2013…sounds good to me! [via American Aftermath]
