Suffocation Fall 2017 US Tour

Suffocation are touring the United States this fall with deathcore bands The Black Dahlia Murder and Exhumed.

Hessians should stay home as Suffocation will shill their phoned-in new album, …Of the Dark Light, for half their set while Frank Mullen probably will not even be fronting Suffocation on all of the tour dates.

    #1: LOL Suffocation opening for a deathcore band. Such a cruel fate. It’s like the Beatles opening for One Direction.

    #2: West Coasters: note that they play Eugene >>> straight to Seattle and B.C. Portland isn’t a hot enough market? Also — 2 dates in California. None in L.A., the second largest city in U.S.A.

      A guy I knew some time between 2000 and 2003 who claimed to be “a metalhead” (insert 2km “Brett Stevens” about loathsome developoments since the mid-1990s) once left my speechless by “Is there really a difference between The Beatles and The Backstreet Boys?” (well, apparently none you could recognize …).

      Note to $blackmetalhead whining how “idiots” took over ‘his’ genre: You ain’t seen nothing yet.

        Note on that Beatles video: Harrison is playing a Gibson SG (a la AC/DC), and McCartney is playing a Rickenbacker bass (a la Lemmy, and Incantation’s current bassist).

        Beyond that… what the FUCK are you talking about!

          You wrote

          It’s like the Beatles opening for One Direction.

          I took this as contrived “That ain’t gonna happen!” example. But weren’t it for the fact that half of the band is dead, it’s not really that far-fetched: People tend to form opinions on precious little, real information, so what are they going to know about The Beatles? Yellow Submarine, very likely, and Yesterday. Maybe Help, too. One of the Carl Perkins covers? Probably not. The juvenile “rock’n’roll covers” band who used to play night long Reeperbahn shows on speed? Certainly not,

          Combine this with advances in technology people take for granted because they never knew anything else, changes in how certain genres are nowadays regarded in public due to “historical reasons” and the unwillingness to listen to some music before jumping to a conclusion about it and – tata – you’ll end up in a situation where people are wondering why the Beatles aren’t “opening for One Direction” (or whatever the boy group of the day happens to be).

          As far as I can tell, rock’n’roll and music derived from it in general and The Beatles in particular are nowadays the exclusive domain of blind drunk party people to whom this is “what Grandma used to like”, just fit for shout-a-along competitions, nobody would even ever think about taking it seriously. That’s a lot worse than enduring all this “sophissicated” self-party-artists who frequent black metal shows.

  2. Necrot is kind of funny, like a shit-assed Necrovore that doesn’t want you to headbang and screws up the rhythm on purpose to fuck with people. Worth investigating, as it presents a fairly unique method of creating mediocre shit. Cynical cashgrabbing faggots for sure. the guitarists girlfriend has nice tits though.

      Would you be willing to elaborate on that?

      I came accross Necrot a while ago and it wasn’t too bad on the surface (considering that roughly 50% of everything is below average, »mediocre« is actually quite good). Musically, this could be described as “more toothless Cruciamentum” but that’s a superficial impression based on very limited online sampling. I didn’t spend more time with it because it didn’t seem “real” in a way I couldn’t nail down. Eg, (contrived example) you buy a “death metal” record and it really turns out to be a one-person side project of the Agoraphobic Nosebleed vocalist and all profits are donated to “The Anti-NSBM Working Group”, both hidden somewhere in the smallprint, or something like this.

      1. Marc Defranco says:

        Necrot is not bad or good so there’s no real point of the band. Just Luke warm. Some members play in two bands that I’d consider good, Vastum and Rude
