Suffocation vs. Cannibal Corpse – Death Match

Nuclear Blast / Metal Blade New York death metal icons Suffocation have been decimating every opponent daring enough to take them on in Loudwire’s series of Death Matches. Suffocation need only one more win for the track ‘As Grace Descends’ to be inducted into our Death Match Hall of Fame. The band has beaten out some of the world’s heaviest bands, but we’re giving them perhaps the most legendary, innovative and most importantly, brutal death metal band the world has to offer. Cannibal Corpse released their 12th studio album, ‘Torture,’ last year to much acclaim from the band’s devoted fanatics. In 2013, however, Cannibal Corpse are set to unleash the ‘Dead Human Collection: 25 Years of Death Metal’ box set, containing every record in Corpse’s discography. The all-inclusive box set ( available here for pre-order ) will be released on March 19, and to celebrate, we’re throwing the ‘Torture’ song ‘Demented Aggression’ into this week’s Death Match. Can Suffocation secure their spot as Death Match Hall of Famers? Or will Cannibal Corpse eat their way toward their own Hall of Fame trek? The decision is yours.

Don’t turn your speakers down yet though, because Suffocation have another heavier-than-hell opponent to face. Belgian death metal veterans Aborted have just released the track ‘Vermicular, Obscene, Obese’ as a single from their 2012 full-length album, ‘Global Flatline.’ The punishing tech-death act now look to dethrone Suffocation and embark on their own quest for the Death Match Hall of Fame.

Bring Me the Horizon vs. Suffocation – Death Match

Epitaph / Nuclear Blast Welcome to the first Death Match of 2013! Connecticut hardcore heroes Hatebreed  ended 2012 with four consecutive wins, locking up a spot in the Death Match Hall of Fame. With Hatebreed’s ‘Put It to the Torch’ declared as immortal, we have two vacant spots for this week’s match. Bring Me the Horizon have just released the single ‘Shadow Moses’ from the band’s upcoming fourth studio album, ‘Sempiternal,’ due April 30. The British metalcore heroes have secured their place as kings of the new school, but their opponents mapped out the very blueprint for brutal death metal. Death metal pioneers Suffocation unleashed ‘As Grace Descends’ during the final days of 2012, brutalizing all who had the bravery to listen. Suffocation’s next album, ‘Pinnacle of Bedlam,’ will be unleashed on Feb. 15, and it will surely prove to be one of this year’s heaviest albums. Can Bring Me the Horizon begin a successful quest to the sacred Hall of Fame? Or will Suffocation choke the life out of the British deathcore act? Your votes will decide the winner.

Suffocation Unleash Track ‘As Grace Descends’ From 2013 Album ‘Pinnacle of Bedlam’

Nuclear Blast Brutal death metal architects Suffocation are set to release their seventh full-length album, ‘Pinnacle of Bedlam’ on Feb. 15, but fans won’t have to wait another two months to hear new material from the band. Suffocation have just unleashed the new track ‘As Grace Descends,’ and spoiler alert: It’s very heavy. After the departure of drummer Mike Smith, there were some big shoes to fill behind the kit. Thus, Suffocation made an incredibly wise decision in recruiting Dave Culross of Malevolent Creation. Culross has drummed from Suffocation in the past, blasting away on the band’s masterful 1998 EP, ‘Despise the Sun.’ “You will definitely hear ‘Despise the Sun’ shining through on this record,” Culross told us in our recent interview with the band. Not only because of my playing on it, but the grooves in some of the stuff that we did are very similar to the grooves in ‘Despise the Sun,’ and I think that’s what will people are gonna characterize between the two albums … you’ll hear the accents in the blasts, a lot of fast double bass; definitely reminiscent of ‘Despise the Sun.’” ‘As Grace Descends’ showcases a more crisp and powerful production standards, which offers an interesting dichotomy as Suffocation bring a more raw sense of composition to the track. Vocalist Frank Mullen is also noticeably straight-forward in his performance, as he keeps his gutturals low while focusing on the pronunciation of his lyrics. Introduce yourselves with ‘As Grace Descends’ in the player below, and whatever you do, only perform the classic Frank Mullen hand chop if you’ve warmed up first, as you will likely break your wrist otherwise.
