Ricky Myers’ studio debut is a work that really does its job and will blow heads. No Death Metal fan should miss this work.

With this album, I strongly believe in the relevance of this new version of Suffocation that could have simply decided to roll on the catalog of the past on tour but decided to give us a damn good cake!

The wait is over! New York death metal legends SUFFOCATION unleash their ninth full-length album Hymns From The Apocrypha via Nuclear Blast.

The band offers fans the third track ‘Delusions of Mortality’ which combines progressive melodies and Ricky Myers‘ monstrous vocals. Check out the 3D lyric video created by Tamara of Aimed & Framed.

SUFFOCATION‘s Ricky Myers comments,“‘Delusions of Mortality’ is the third single off our new album HYMNS FROM THE APOCRYPHA. The lyrical content pertains to these dimensional beings granting us ancient scriptures scribed of our true origin, purpose, and the reason why humanity was created. Revealing knowledge that is too much for man to comprehend but at the same time, it allows mankind to remove the veil and see the truth. This existence is nothing but a delusion.”

SUFFOCATION 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), Hymns from the Apocrypha is characteristically SUFFOCATION. It’s uncompromisingly brutal, artistically gutsy, and aurally heavy. Clearly, SUFFOCATION, as they head into their 35th Anniversary, are at the peak of their potential. Death metal or die!

Hymns from the Apocrypha will be available digitally and in the following formats:

CD Jewel
