Suffocation Pierced From Within on Import LP

In death metal history, Suffocation stands unique for fusing the technical with the percussive, brutal "older" styles of death metal as well as for being emulated more than any other band. Forming in 1989, Suffocation issued their Human Waste EP on Relapse in 1991. Complex and unrelentingly savage, Human Waste saw Suffocation bash out the beginnings of death metal's most visible style, the "New York" combination of blasting grind core beats and metallic textures.

In 1991 their now classic full-length debut Effigy of the Forgotten was released via Roadrunner Records. It took the rhythmic relentlessness of hardcore beats, put them into speed metal structures and overlaid off-time counterpoint structures. In 1993 the band released follow-up Breeding the Spawn which only built on their legacy with more emphasis on the bearing weight of repeated changing/off time rhythms and a Slayer-derived sense of melody.

Third full-length, 1995's Pierced From Within, was yet another landmark effort of extreme metal masterfully produced by Scott Burns. Technically top notch, heavy as hell and musically complex, Pierced From Within finds the band at their pinnacle and even includes re-recordings of "Synthetically Revived" from the Human Waste EP and the title cut from Breeding the Spawn that surpass the originals for good measure.
