About Suffocation

Suffocation are globally recognized innovators of death metal. Since the 1990s, their massive influence on the genre came from pioneering the balance between brutal and technical sounds now commonly heard in 21st century death metal. After several demos and singles, 1991's now-classic Effigy of the Forgotten influenced an entire generation in death metal and grindcore circles. It was followed by 1993's critically acclaimed Breeding of the Spawn. The band split in 1995's, but re-formed years later for 2004's Souls to Deny. 2009's Blood Oath marked their first American chart entry. 2017's ...Of the Dark Light charted in Europe. In 2019, Suffocation's trailblazing frontman Frank Mullen retired and handed the mic to Ricky Myers for 2023's Hymns from the Apocrypha.
