I’m sure it will be. Heavy, brutal, riff-heavy…all the usual pre-album hype these deathcore cats spew these days on their Fakebooks and their Tweeters with their Twilights and their rainbow parties. I’m not the least bit surprised these guys would use an adjective like “heavy,” because listening to their music, you can tell they’re the kind of band that just tries to keep amping up the heaviness, because that’s what makes kids rip each other apart in the pit.
I noticed on Blabbermouth that Australia’s Loud magazine spoke with guitarist Mark Heylmun of California deathcore masters Suicide Silence and he says on the next record, which they’ve been working on all year in a cabin in the mountains, we’ll be hearing “a bunch of crazy stuff. We’ve got a bunch of new stuff and we’ll be looking to record it early next year.”
Not surprisingly, the new album will be ready in time for summer and Mayhem…just a thought. “It’s just going to be heavy as hell, catchy as hell, [with] good live songs that are fun to play live and with more riffage. We try not to go by the book and do fun stuff we can jam on.”
What does Heylmun think of being tagged “deathcore?” “It is what it is. Whatever you want to call it, it’s just a new thing that somebody thought of. I don’t think anyone [in the band] thinks of it as deathcore, or any other bands other than some younger bands [use it either], it’s just a media label and we’re just bands playing music. We just accept it and do what we want to do anyway. I don’t really get it. The first time I heard anyone say it was at a show a long time ago, like 2005. It was funny.”
