SUFFOKATE are a true underground metal phenomenon and have built up a rabid, extremely loyal following upon releasing their self-financed debut offering in 2004. Since then the band has refined their line-up and sound to an amalgamation of angst-ridden hardcore, fused with a Bay Area thrash backbone. This is extreme, unapologetic metal that pulls no punches and goes straight for the jugular with a barrage of frenetic riffs and crushing grooves that will pummel you into oblivion. In August 2008, SUFFOKATE embarked of their first U.S. tour and haven't stopped touring since.
SUFFOKATE have crafted a stellar new offering of pure, unfiltered heavy metal that will soon be hailed as one of the most devastating offerings of the year. The much anticipated, appropriately titled new disc, No Mercy, No Forgiveness, is now set for a Nov. 17th release and head over now to http://www.myspace.com/suffokate to stream new tracks and view their remaining dates with All Shall Perish and Caliban along with upcoming shows with Sea Of Treachery, Blindwitness, And Hell Followed With and Destruction of A Rose.
Taylor (guitars) further states: "We are extremely excited and anxious for our new release. As a band we haven't put a new album out in five years. Since then we have grown as musicians and as people. Over the past year we have been touring nonstop in support of this new effort. We feel that our sound is different than a lot of bands. The goal of this unit is to blend all styles and genres into one sound that we call our own. We feel that our music can appeal to any type of heavy music listener.
"No Mercy, No Forgiveness is the next step in the progression of our sound. There are some very new and different things on this album that this band has never done before. Hopefully this will take us to the next level and allow us to stay on the road as that is what we do best. Take a look at our MySpace page to see if we are coming to a town near you and we hope to see you all soon."
