Suffocation Finishing Up New Album, Pinnacle Of Bedlam

Suffocation

We told you a week or so ago about the new Suffocation album.

Today, a press release went out about it, and everybody acted like it was new fucking news.

Nah, man. That’s fucking old news, son.

The press release claims the band’s nearly finished tracking Pinnacle of Bedlam at New York’s Full Force Studios with Joe Cincotta on the mix and Zeuss mastering the fucker.

Ten songs long, it’s drummer Dave Culross’ first new album wit the band since his return.

“The recording process of our new album, Pinnacle of Bedlam, began Monday, August 13th,” says bassist Derek Boyer. “We brought in our gear, mic’d up the drum kit, imported tempo maps from our pre-production sessions, then dove right in! The drum tracking came out amazing! Dave Culross killed it!”

I bet. Dude can smash.

“Once I laid down the bass tracks, the foundation of the album was built and was very solid and ready for Terrance and Guy to begin recording guitars, which they have. Thereafter, Frank began working on his vocals. The recording process is just about wrapped up, we just have some tweaking to do before we send it off to get mixed and mastered.”

Guitarist Terrance Hobbs says the meaning of the title is “the tipping point or most elevated moment as we approach the chaotic climax of this existence. The cosmic scale teeters and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance. People should expect nothing less than sheer brutality, as we perform together with this incredible line up! We feel this CD will be the best Suffocation album ever to have been released and are confident the fans will love it.”
