Suicide Silence Premiere “Alter Of Self” Music Video

Suicide Silence have premiered a new video for their latest single “Alter Of Self.” This track is from the band’s new album “Remember… You Must Die,” which will be released on March 10. Mark Heylmun commented:

“‘Alter Of Self‘, musically, is a step in a much more melodic direction than the tracks we’ve released as of late. It’s speaking a much different language, but still has all the bone-shattering groove and breakdowns you’d expect from us. Lyrically, the song isn’t difficult to interpret. It’s about doing such a large dose of mind-altering substance or substances that you begin to worship yourself as god. Tune in and drop out on this one.”

“Remember… You Must Die” Track Listing:

01. “Remember…”
02. “You Must Die”
03. “Capable of Violence (N.F.W.)”
04. “Fucked For Life”
05. “Kill Forever”
06. “God Be Damned”
07. “Alter of Self”
08. “Endless Dark”
09. “The Third Death”
10. “Be Deceived”
11. “Dying Life”
12. “Full Void”

Distant’s Alan Grnja commented:

“The inspiration for that came from animated shows in the 90s where Spider Man would team up with X-Men and stuff like that! We did that on a track in 2020 called ‘Argent Debt‘ where we had five other people. We were inspired by being on tour in America and so many of us jumping up onstage and playing together. Every vocalist on this track sounds unique. It’s a bright, colorful rainbow of Deathcore singers!”

Suicide Silence have shared an age-restricted music video for their new song “Capable Of Violence (N.F.W.).” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “Remember… You Must Die.” The group commented:

“What would it take to make you retaliate? Even further, what would make you take a life? Is there ever an appropriate time for violence? We live in a world where these questions are unfortunately answered by many all of the time. An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind, yet humanity continues to crave death and destruction. Are you ‘Capable of Violence?’ This might be the most Suicide Silence video EVER. We hope you enjoy it. Happy Halloween everyone. Heavy as possible.”

“‘You Must Die‘ reminds us that time is merciless. Every second the clock ticks we grow closer to death and what happens after our short bout with time is a total mystery. ‘You Must Die’ was written as a reminder to remember death and to not let time be our master.”
