New York death metal veterans, SUFFOCATION, have made the brand new track “As Grace Descends” available for streaming here. The songs comes from their upcoming album Pinnacle of Bedlam, which will be released on February 19th in North America.
The record was produced by the band and tracked at Full Force Studios in New York by longtime collaborator Joe Cincotta. The mixing and mastering was handled this time around by world renowned producer/engineer Zeuss (HATEBREED, ARSIS, SUICIDE SILENCE). Pinnacle of Bedlam will feature 10 genre-defining-bone-crushing tracks and also marks the return of drummer Dave Culross, who played with the band previously on their Despise The Sun EP. Artwork was handled this time around by artist Raymond Swanland (DEEDS OF FLESH, PSYCROPTIC).
SUFFOCATION were among the inductees for this year’s class of the Long Island Music Hall Of Fame. The event was held on October 18 at The Paramount in Huntington, New York. Pictures from the press conference can be viewed here
