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 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!”

Belphegor haven’t been taking the criticism well either and are now facing controversy after reportedly using a homophobic slur while responding to an angry fan.

Cannibal Corpse, Ex-Suffocation, Etc. Members To Guest On New Deeds Of Flesh Album “Nucleus”

Deeds Of Flesh have revealed the details for their new album “Nucleus.” The effort will be released on December 11 and it will feature George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (Cannibal Corpse), Frank Mullen (ex-Suffocation), Luc Lemay (Gorguts), Bill Robinson (Decrepit Birth), and more. A lyric video for the first single, “Alyen Scourge,“ can be found below:

“Nucleus” Track Listing:

01. “Odyssey”
02. “Alyen Scourge”
03. “Ascension Vortex” [feat. Bill Robinson (Decrepit Birth), Obie Flett (Pathology), & Anthony Trapani (Odious Mortem, Severed Savior)]
04. “Catacombs of the Monolith” [feat. Luc Lemay (Gorguts)]
05. “Ethereal Ancestors” [feat. George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (Cannibal Corpse)]
06. “Nucleus” [feat. John Gallagher (Dying Fetus)]
07. “Races Conjoined” [feat. Matti Way (Submerged, ex-Disgorge), Frank Mullen (ex-Suffocation), & Jon Zig (Serpentian)]
08. “Terror” [feat. Dusty Boisjolie (Severed Savior, Illuminegra) & Robbe Kok (Disavowed)]
09. “Onward”

Craig Peters said the following about the record, which will complete the story that started with “What’s To Come”:

“After we started the writing process for Nucleus about seven years ago, I’m very glad that now fans will be able to hear what we’ve been working on. This album is special to me because I got to work closely with Erik [Lindmark] on the material to really craft a cinematic experience for the listener.

With the passing of Erik we were all saddened by the news and not sure where things would go with the album and the band. It only seemed right to have Jacoby [Kingston] and Mike [Hamilton] come back into the fold to help finish this album.

They’re such a huge part of the Deeds Of Flesh legacy that I couldn’t see the album completed any other way. Nucleus completes this amazing story that Erik started with Of What’s To Come with a fusion of older and newer musical elements of the band with stuff fans have never heard before. Get ready because this album is an intense journey!”

Kingston added:

“After losing Erik, it didn’t feel right to have anyone else do the vocals on this album, so I knew coming out of retirement only made sense. Mike Hamilton and I made a plan to tackle the story and lyrics as a team and it came out better than I could have hoped for.

Writing and performing on this album brought me back to the early days of recording ‘Gradually Melted‘ and ‘Trading Pieces‘, when everything was new and exciting. We put 100% into this album and I think it really shows.

The dream team of guest vocalists that laid down tracks on this album is ridiculous and humbling at the same time. We are honored to have them, and I think fans will be excited about it once they learn who is on there.

The music is freaking crazy, but it’s definitely a Deeds album. We’ve managed to mix some of the old and new together to come out with a hybrid form for a new era.”
