new SUFFOCATION track

Recommended Posts

SUFFOCATION - Your Last Breaths (OFFICIAL 360 VISUALIZER VIDEO)

 

good song, really like it...but...the prod seems a little "too good" for death metal...at least too good for this style. maybe i'm just used to Suffo having much darker old school sounding prod but the clarity and clean/crispness of it seems like it's taking away from the brutality and darkness you want from Suffo and death metal in general.

i'll most likely grab it anyways, the prod doesn't ruin the song by any means, just something that sticks out a bit to me.

Pretty hard to tell what the sound will be like from a Youtube stream. I hear what you're saying about the drums, though, they sound pretty lifeless despite all of their complexity. The song is ok, but doesn't really go anywhere, and feels repetitive. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of the album anyway.

I can hear the work and skill going on with the drums but fuck me do they sound triggered and clicky. 

unfortunately thats the current way most bands do it. its great for your DIY musician/band but you'd hope the pros could still pull off the classic non-triggered drums.

It's a new drummer, I'm not familiar with the guy. Maybe that's just his sound. A lot of those classic albums were triggered too, and there's a lot of sample-based augmentation going on with high-end modern recording. It's not necessarily evil. They definitely overdid it here though. Kinda bothered me to see somebody post yesterday about how they weren't "much of a Suffocation fan" but this one had finally won them over somehow. Made me wonder what was wrong with their ears. But hey, whatever works, I guess...

i can see the new Suffo winning new metalheads over because it fits the modern sound. i got hardcore into the underground in the late 90's and  i could barely listen to stuff from the early 90's because it was too raw...everything sounded like a demo to me... so take a kid listening to modern shit and show them anything pre-2000 and they may immediately dismiss it...especially when you have thousands upon thousands of options at your fingers tips... growing up in the 90's, and obviously before that, music meant more and you gave it more of a chance because it wasn't easy to just grab something else.

For sure, it takes a while to open up to different sounds - I had kind of a hard time going the other direction. The "modern death metal" sound was initially a turn-off for me. I'm just wondering what people would get out of the new Suffo that they wouldn't get out of Blood Oath or Pinnacle.

    • Black metal is the snow-covered forest at sunset; the full moon glimpsed through jagged trees; the candle that flickers in ghost winds; the indelible emptiness of the lonely human soul that cries out to empty skies.

    • I’ve been watching a bunch of nature documentaries recently. Dangerous animals only, for the most part, because I refuse to devote an hour of my life watching turtles mosey around the deep blue. Additionally, I’ve sought out very in-depth material so I can appreciate the animal being analyzed. As a result I’ve been able to watch a decent amount of material closely scrutinizing the habits of predators, and that’s given me a particularly good context for understanding Sadist’s 2015 album “Hyena”.

      This album is intended to track the habits of a hyena. Seems a bit on the nose, but bear with me; the album’s style is important. The album takes the listener on a markedly violent safari in an open-top jeep. Feel the wind in your hair, enjoy the natural splendor of the savannah, watch some animals murder and/or eat each other. Bring along some Mango Jive but for goodness sake leave your droewors back at the hut. Musically, as far as the metal goes – it’s a technical death/thrash album with the ferocity of the latter and the substance of the former. The vocals are higher-pitched snarls, characteristic of Sadist and perfect for the concept; in fact the entire production isolates the smooth bass to allow for moodier lines from said instrument.

      I’ve always noticed that in the grand sweep of folk metal African music usually gets left out. Makes some sense – I’ve heard quite a lot of traditional African music and it’s way too happy and tropical. Then again, Dan Swano, Skindred and even Equilibrium have managed to make Caribbean music work in metal, so it’s not impossible. The next best thing is something thematically evocative, which is what “Hyena” represents. It’s not perfect; Sadist could have paced out the textures better and deepened the nature sounds, perhaps taking influence from the largely untouchable Russo-Finnish metal masters Second To Sun. That being said, it’s a one-of-a-kind work and Sadist deserves credit for taking their vicious brand of tech-death on a sun-bleached adventure into the wild.

    • After listening to both albums, I am having difficulty deciding which I think is better.  Both have excellent songs and guitar work, and express the atmosphere of Burzum extremely.  Personally, however, I think that the vocals are delivered better on Filosofem.  Filosofem also has more songs, but the 25 minute synth track is not as good as Tomhet.  What do you all think?

    • Post photos of your various collections here! 

      Here are three shots of my black metal collection. The first is the whole thing, but i've also included two closer shots that should be clearer when zooming in etc.  

      Entire Black Metal CD collection:

    • On BM scene there are also good worth of attention female vocalists. Some of my fav bands.

      1 Astarte - All female black metal band from Greece. In my opinion Tristessa is one of the best female growler.

      2 Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult - Onielar and her growls and style are something amazing. Nothing more nothing less. 

      3 Gedanken Toten Lebens - Interesting one-woman atmospheric black metal project. Lyrics are about naure, death and philosophy. 

      Who is your favourite black metal female vocalist? Do you like these bands? Or maybe you think black metal isn't for women? Let's start the discussion!
