Suffocation announce new record, Hymns From The Apocrypha, out on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast
Here are some spicy news to start the day – New York death metal legends Suffocation have announced their ninth full-length record! Entitled Hymns From The Apocrypha, the follow-up to 2017s …of the Dark Light, and the aband’s first release featuring new vocalist Ricky Myers, pushes the band to the very edges of extremity and is arguably the group’s strongest-sounding, most sonically punishing album yet. Undoubtedly, Suffocation have achieved death metal perfection, and in lue of the announcement, have unleashed the first single, “Seraphim Enslavement”, which features a menacing music video directed and edited by Tom Flynn with character design by Kyle Monroe – you can watch the video below this article.
On this new record, bassist Derek Boyer comments, “This is my fifth full-length studio album with SUFFOCATION and this album came out SICK! It features all of the brutal, technical, chaotic twists and turns everyone would expect from SUFFOCATION, plus new elements that are out of the normal realm one might expect. This is the sophomore effort of working with Christian Donaldson (who mixed and mastered Live In North America) and he absolutely KILLED IT on this one!!! We can’t wait to bring these songs to the stage and crush everything in our path!”. Ricky Myers adds, “We are thrilled to unveil our 11th full-length album, Hymns From The Apocrypha, a creatively composed piece that blends our style of music with lyrical depth and intricate artwork. This album is a testament to our devotion to brutal music, which we display in the video of our single, ‘Seraphim Enslavement’, a visual journey that complements the album’s concept.”
Hymns From The Apocrypha will be released on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast. Pre-orders are now available here.
