New York's genre defining extreme metal legends, SUFFOCATION, will enter the studio to begin recording their Nuclear Blast debut "Blood Oath" starting January 31st. The follow up to their 2006 self-titled record will once again be recorded with Joe Cincotta, whom they worked with on their previous two releases. Mixing duties will be handled this time around by Zack Ohren (ALL SHALL PERISH, DECREPIT BIRTH) and cover artwork will once again be brought to life by Jon Zig (DEEDS OF FLESH, DISGORGE, GORGASM). Some tentative song titles so far are "Dismal Dream", "Undeserving", "Confines of Disillusion", "Blood Oath", "Come Hell Or High Priest", "Provoking the Disturbed". More details and tour plans to be revealed shortly!
SUFFOCATION recently completed a North American tour as direct support to reactivated UK melodo-death/gore/grind legends CARCASS. The package also included 1349, ABORTED and ROTTEN SOUND.
