New York death metal legends Suffocation will unleash their ninth full-length album “Hymns From The Apocrypha” on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to “…of the Dark Light” (2017) and the first release featuring the new vocalist Ricky Myers, pushes the band to the very edges of extremity and is arguably the group’s strongest-sounding, most sonically punishing album yet.

The band has shared the second single from the album entitled, ‘Perpetual Deception’. The track revisits the Son of Man (Jesus) and his continuous deceit, a nod to the classic Suffocation track, ‘Jesus Wept.’

The band took about a month and a half to record “Hymns From The Apocrypha”. They holed up at Hobbs and Boyer‘s InLine Studio in Long Island. The duo engineered and co-produced with Christian Donaldson (Beneath the Massacre, Ingested), who was also re-enlisted to mix and master, with Dominic Grimard (Cryptopsy, Shadow of Intent) assisting. With stunning cover art by Greek illustrator Giannis Nakos of Remedy Art Design (Vomitory, The Crown), the album is characteristically Suffocation. It’s uncompromisingly brutal, artistically gutsy, and aurally heavy. Clearly, as Suffocation head into their 35th Anniversary, are at the peak of their potential. Death metal or die!

The album is available for pre-order HERE. It will be available digitally and in the following formats:

  • CD Jewel
  • Vinyl
  • Brown w/ White Splatter
  • White w/ Brown Corona (Mailorder exclusive, limited to 600), and
