Suffocation Stream Live Version Of “Pierced From Within”

Suffocation are streaming a live version of their song “Pierced From Within.” The audio is taken from the band’s new live album “Live In North America,” which will be released on November 12. That effort was recorded during the band’s final tour with ex-frontman Frank Mullen. Terrance Hobbs commented:

“Hope you all enjoy this live version of ‘Pierced From Within‘. This song has always been a staple of the Suffocation arsenal as it’s one of our favorite musical pieces to play. When going through the live recording and figuring out which songs to tease this release we didn’t even have a second thought when it came to ‘Pierced From Within‘ and we couldn’t be more proud of how this live version sounds. This song has transcended almost 3 decades and still holds its potency in our set to this very day as well as being intricate with breaking major ground for us in the death metal world since its original release. Hope you all crank it out loud and let Suffocation fill your homes with some of our best death metal through the years!”

We couldn’t think of a better way to wish Frank a fantastic farewell into retirement for all his contributions to this band as a great frontman, influence, and friend – and to also share this farewell with the fans, new and old, who have been there for us over the decades.

We hope the fans will hold Frank‘s last recorded live tour with us close to your hearts as we do. As another chapter from Suffocation closes, we are more than ready and anxious to bring you more new music and classic death metal in the upcoming months and years. So keep your eyes and ears open, stay heavy and play it loud… see you all on the road!”
