In a recent promotional video for Suffocation‘s upcoming not so great album …Of the Dark Light, frontman Frank Mullen admitted that since the band members live all over the place and not in one centralized area, have lives outside of Suffocation, and don’t really practice as much anymore “so a lot of stuff was put together kinda like right on the spot.” Rhythm guitarist Charlie Errigo said “It’s like a videogame. It’s like each riff is a level and you got that hard riff that’s the boss.”
Shoddily cobbled together video game music. Great work guys. Thank you for being honest. Suffocation’s new record of computer game metal comes out on Nuclear Blast Records June 9th. Suffocation are currently touring with Morbid Angel, who are playing an all Steve Tucker set for guitar wankers to stroke out to in their sweatpants. I’m so excited.
