Although slimy death metal newcomers Suppression have already generated a fair amount of hype and interest, they’re just now releasing their debut album, The Sorrow of Soul through Flesh. The record is officially out April 25 via Unspeakable Axe Records, and you can hear it with us first.
“The Sorrow of Soul Through Flesh is an album inspired and produced under the most classic eaves of ’90s death metal, especially from those bands where the meticulous and dedicated work of each member stood out,” says guitarist Daniel Poblete. “The early work of Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Gorelust, and Gorguts are the ones that inspired the compositions. This release is an effort not to lose the raw essence that bands had in the ’90s, and also to be able to contribute to the genre.
“The human being, his null relationship with death in our culture, dissociative behaviors, delusions, personal experiences around death, the mind and its fragility, are the subjects you will find in the lyrics of the album.”
This initial full-length release follows the Repugnant Remains EP, released in 2019 also on Unspeakable Axe Records. With The Sorrow of Soul Through Flesh, the band hone their technical, old-school death metal blend into an even more cohesive sound.
Unspeakable Axe Records will release The Sorrow of Soul through Flesh on CD and digital formats on April 25. Vinyl treatment coming via Dark Descent Records later this year.
