Suffocation vs. Dying Fetus – Death Match

Nuclear Blast / Relapse Death metal legends Suffocation  trampled British metalcore band Bring Me the Horizon in our last Death Match. Supported by their blood-bound fans, Suffocation were able to achieve a massive win over their popular opponents. Those same fans demanded a purely brutal competitor for Suffocation to face. You demanded it, and now we deliver. Dying Fetus put out one of last year’s best and heaviest death metal albums, ‘Reign Supreme,’ and also achieved a spot in our Death Match Hall of Fame for the punishing track ‘Subjected to a Beating.’ The band now returns with an insane new video for the technical masterwork ‘Second Skin,’ which just premiered on BloodyDisgusting.com .
