SUFFOCATION & REVOCATION Team Up For Australian Tour

Share This:

What’s better than watching the universe get torn apart by a brutal death metal band? Watching it get absolutely ripped to shreds by two death metal bands!

That’s right, grab your helmet and start training now as New York death metal legends Suffocation and their very special guests, Boston progressive death metal masters Revocation team up for the ultimate night of destruction.

With nine albums under their belts and widely regarded as one of the founding pioneers of the entire death metal genre, Suffocation have been laying down the blueprint since ’88. When their debut album Effigy of the Forgotten came bursting out of speakers in 1991 the game was forever changed. Crushing riffs, blasting drums and those inhumanly deep vocals influenced every single band that was to follow in their footsteps. Their balancing of brutality with technical mastery is often imitated but never replicated and as we know, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

To date, Suffocation have played over 2,000 shows, giving audiences all over the world massive doses of unforgettable blasts and trademark slams. Truly, the group’s global influence is unmistakable and undeniable. Their forthcoming new album, Hymns from the Apocrypha, out on November 3, isn’t merely another album but a statement of savage intent. Suffocation always have been and are here to slay!

Band bassist Derek Boyer says of ‘Hymns..’ “We will always be pushing for an extreme edge. After decades of this, we’re not just going add a violin or feature a spoon man or some other bullshit. Suffocation is raw, aggressive, fast, heavy, brutal death metal. Just as it has always been and will always be.”

Nuff said!
