SUFFOCATION Unveil ‘…Of The Dark Light’ Details And Release Lyric Video; To Tour With MORBID ANGEL, REVOCATION & WITHERED

One of death metal’s most legendary bands, New York’s Suffocation, will release their new album, ‘…Of The Dark Light‘, on June 9th via Nuclear Blast Records.    

The new opus was produced by Suffocation and tracked at Full Force Studios with longtime engineer Joe Cincotta (Obituary). Mixing and mastering was handled by the world-renowned producer/engineer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Arsis, Suicide Silence). Cover artwork was created by Colin Marks (Origin, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Kataklysm).

Guitarist and founding member Terrance Hobbs comments:

“The moment we have been waiting for is here, our new album …Of The Dark Light will finally be released through Nuclear Blast on June 9th, 2017! Over the last 4 year period Suffocation has taken its time to write this record and we couldn’t be prouder. It is our most brutal record yet!

“Suffocation worked through the end of 2016 to hash out and lay down the tracks at Full Force Studios with Joe Cincotta and once again enlisted Zeuss to bring this creation to life! Myself, Frank Mullen, Charles Errigo, Eric Morotti and Derek Boyer have all pushed the limit of what Suffocation is and we hope you enjoy it!

“We also had the honor of having Colin Marks handling our artwork which is a new frontier for us and a different avenue and style to the traditional Suffocation records. We also included some backup vocals from Kevin Muller (The Merciless Concept) which for us makes this album very unique!  This will be our 10th studio release and we really hope you like …Of The Dark Light! Keep the grind alive and hope to see you on the road!”

Suffocation have just shared a lyric video to one of the tracks from the new album, ‘Return To The Abyss‘, which is streaming below. Terrance mentioned seeing the band on the road soon, well you will get that chance in the U.S. beginning next week. That’s when Suffocation hits the road with Withered and Revocation as the three provide support for Morbid Angel.
