After 17 long years, death metal legends Suffocation are returning to Serbia as part of the big summer European tour “Bow To None”. On July 30th (Tuesday), Suffocation will perform at KST.

Suffocation are death metal pioneers founded 36 years ago in Centereach, New York. They drew attention to themselves in 1991 with their debut album “Effigy of the Forgotten”, which immediately became a classic of the genre. After that, they released eight more studio albums, the latest of which “Hymns from the Apocrypha” saw the light of day in November, which they will promote on this occasion. From that album, they released the video “Seraphim Enslavement”. It should be mentioned that there was a nice collaboration on the song “Ignorant Deprivation”: the vocalist is Frank Mullen, one of the founders of the band, and the lyrics were written by Mike Smith, the former drummer.

They cited Napalm Death and Sepultura as their role models in the early years of the band, while their playing trademark, breakdowns, are considered one of the foundations of the entire new subgenre: deathcore. The band members are Terence Hobbs on lead guitar, Derek Boyer on bass, Charlie Erijo on rhythm guitar, Erik Moroti on drums and Richie Myers as vocalist, who has been a permanent member of the band since 2019, and is otherwise a vocalist in the American death metal band Disgorge.
