Suffocation is an American death metal band that was formed in 1989 in Long Island, New York. The band comprises vocalist Frank Mullen, guitarists Terrance Hobbs and Guy Marchais, drummer Mike Smith and bassist Derek Boyer. Suffocation rose to prominence of death metal and created a blueprint for the genre for the 1990s with their 1991 debut album Effigy of the Forgotten and released six studio albums since its formation.
The band's grindcore-influenced technical death metal style uses guttural vocals with a bottom-heavy guitar sound; complex, fast guitar riffs and drumming, and a sophisticated sense of songwriting.
Canadian Death Metal legends Kataklysm officially formed in the fall of 1991, they released a now classic demo called Death Gate Cycle Of Reincarnation in 1992 that got world attention and a record deal with Germany's Nuclear Blast records, the band signed in 1993 and immediately released the demo on CD format and added the bonus track The Orb Of Uncreation which resulted in the creation of the critically acclaimed MCD The Mystical Gate Of Reincarnation. Kataklysm gained world praise and recognition ...a new style and influence was born : the Northern Hyperblast ..and that was just the beginning! In 1995 the band releases their first album entitled Sorcery which quickly propelled Kataklysm as one of the new leaders and forces to be reckon with in the extreme metal scene!
The band follow up again with another hard hitting assault in 1996 with the release of the second full length album Temple Of Knowledge accompanied with a video clip for the track The Awakener which resulted in headliner tours and a bright future a head. With releases like Northern Hyperblast Live a limited edition CD and the controversial 3rd album Victims Of This Fallen World in 1998 the band showed divesity and explored new territory in which Kataklysm found new ground to establish a new sound that soon that would pave the way for new classics to come!
In 2000 Kataklysm strike with a deadly weapon and 4th album called The Prophecy (Stigmata Of The Immaculate) an album that put Kataklysm on a new course and new horizons, that critics called one of the most devastating release in extreme music in years. With all eyes on Canada's finest export Kataklysm, the pressure was one. but that's when Kataklysm are their most lethal! In 2001 a classic extreme album was born entitled Epic (The Poetry Of War), with a melodic edge backed by extreme roaring power. The bands 5th album has become Kataklysm's finest hour leaving critics stupefied and the world begging for more!
So here we are today with tours in over 19 countries around the world, TV appearances expanding in 11 years of existence of blood & sweat, Kataklysm are back to prove that aging brings experience that make great leaders, Kataklysm are at the top of they're form and have evolved into a powerhouse that will crush all and leave nothing but Shadows & Dust for the mortals to beg! Their 6th album to be released in fall of 2002! Once again handled in the true mercenary fashion of Kataklysm with a production that will leave you breathless. A new chapter is born.. a new era in extreme music.. be prepared for Kataklysm's deadly grip!! Here is what one of North Americas most respected writers has to say about this new masterpiece: "Like true Gladiators, Shadows And Dust tears at you with violent power, crude anger and the barefaced truth of somebody with nothing to lose. A hailstorm of musical swords, without the sorcery, Kataklysm are primed to 'Face The Face Of War' with their latest. This is a furious speed freak with enough doom and gloom to lock and load you for many years to come. Think In Flames huffing gas while classic Priest blares in the background. Shadows And Dust is beauty from a world viewed with revulsion and malice. Unlike anything they've done and a true succession, Kataklysm, once again, take the heaviest of music and add true weight and consequence. " Mitch Joel (Circus Magazine/Hour/Revolver online)
Shots' firing overhead, out of breath, thankful to be alive, an exhausted, courageous soldier takes cover in a nearby trench. Overcome with tragedy, the cadet looks down to carefully remove his worn down combat boots to discover his feet numb and blue, knocking him back with an overwhelming smell of decay and gangrene. This phenomenon is known as "jungle rot". With a little imagination, visualize this horrifyingly grotesque predicament as it would be in heavy metal form - teeming with despair, brutality, darkness and volatility. The sinister picture you have just painted comes to life in four-piece death metal act JUNGLE ROT, who has been triumphantly destroying the metal scene since 1994.
PYREXIA is currently in the studio recording their latest material for the 2013 release , "Feast of Iniquity" on Unique Leader Records. An epic production unlike anything heard in the genre , PYREXIA embraces a path of constant attack and unforgiving song structure. With the addition of Doug Bohn (Suffocation/"Pierced from within") performing on Drums along side Dave "War Machine" Culross (Suffocation,Malevolant Creation) , Unique Leader has got an Atomic Weapon and the makings of a classic in its 2012 roster.
The New York-based INTERNAL BLEEDING have been slugging it out in the underground since 1991. One of the pioneers of the New York death metal sound along with Suffocation and Pyrexia, they helped create the standard by which we judge all things heavy. Onward To Mecca, their new album, cements that legacy.
After the breakup of his original band Autumn Reign, guitarist Chris Pervelis went on to found the first INTERNAL BLEEDING lineup in early 1991.Thatwinter, a case of 300 blank tapes were "found" at a local university and provided the inspiration to set up a 4-track recorder and record the One DollarDemo. Shortly after that recording, INTERNAL BLEEDING started playing shows and managed to sell out of all of their tapes. In the winter of 1992, INTERNAL BLEEDING released their now classic Invocation of Evil demo, which went on to sell an impressive 5,000 copies through the now defunct WildRags Records. Soon, pressure started to come from Wild Rags, fans, and the band themselves, and INTERNAL BLEEDING returned to the studio torecord another demo in early 1994. The result of all that pressure was what is considered today to be a masterpiece of underground music: Perpetual Degradation. The band immediately hit the road with a vengeance, promoting themselves and their music shamelessly.
All that self-promotion and tireless dedication was to bear fruit at that year's Milwaukee Metalfest, where the band's captivating performance caught the eyes and ears of Pavement Music. They signed with Pavement and in 1995 released their debut album, Voracious Contempt. INTERNAL BLEEDING hit the road once again, this time around with world-renowned acts Immolation and Six Feet Under. Album sales were impressive, and the group kept busy throughout 1995 and 1996. By the time 1997 rolled around, constant touring and hard work had taken its toll on the band, while financial troubles plagued Pavement Music. It was during this time that the group's second album, The Extinction of Benevolence, was released. No tour followed, and INTERNAL BLEEDING fell into a rut of inactivity. In late 1998, they regrouped, refocused and began writing music that pushed their talents to the limit. Pavement Music picked up their finances, and 1999 saw the band in the studio recording Driven to Conquer with ace producer Brian Griffin.
The band decided to part ways with Pavement Music in 2000 due to lack of support and soon struck a deal with Olympic Recordings. A compilation of their early demos titled Alien Breed soon followed. The disc also included one brand new track that hinted at the future. Now featuring a revamped line-up, the group finally returns with the long-awaited follow-up to Driven To Conquer and expands on their already potent sound. Onward To Mecca sees the band finding even more groove and brutality than showcased on their previous efforts. Indeed, INTERNAL BLEEDING has created an album that is sure to transcend both the death and hardcore genres.
Originally slated for a late fall 2001 release and originally titled Hatefuel, Onward To Mecca was long hindered by contractual red tape. During Century Media's gradual acquisition of Olympic Recordings, the label struggled to release albums in a timely manner. Never content to just sit around and wait, Jerry Lowe (vocals), Frank Buffalino (guitar) and Matt Ferrara (guitar) found the time to form the NY-styled hardcore band PUNCHYOURFACE. It was beginning to be obvious that the next INTERNAL BLEEDING release would see more of a hardcore influence as the band prepared to re-enter the studio. Now, the delay has proven well worth the wait, and it isn't hard to hear why when listening to this album of state-of-the-art New York deathcore.
Armed with nothing more than an abundance of musical talent and a deep commitment to their musical ideals, INTERNAL BLEEDING has survived member changes, lawsuits, letdowns and heartaches. But unlike some of their peers, the band has never called it quits. Although only two original members remain, the band's unique vision of mixing the extremity of death metal with the groove and rhythm found in other forms of music (hardcore, traditional metal, funk, etc.) is still intact. Onward To Mecca--recorded at Full Force Studios (Suffocation, Catastrophic) in the spring of 2004--is sure to please fans of everything from Suffocation and Dying Fetus to newer deathcore bands like Glass Casket and Between The Buried And Me.
