Suffocation unleash death metal decimation with "Perpetual Deception"

- By Ramon Gonzales

The latest from the New York OGs ninth album 'Hymns From The Apocrypha' references the band's 1991 classic, "Jesus Wept".

Charing towards the November 3rd release date of their landmark ninth studio album, New York death metal institution Suffocation have unveiled the second single from Hymns From The Apocrypha. 

"Perpetual Deception" follows the introduction of "Seraphim Enslavement" and showcases the second single to feature the band's newest recruit in vocalist Ricky Myers. 

The most recent preview of the album also harkens back to a Suffocation classic, as "Perpetual Deception revisits the "Son of Man" (Jesus) referenced on the 1991 essential, "Jesus Wept".

Hymns from the Apocrypha marks Suffocation first full length since 2017's ...Of the Dark Light. Tapping Christian Donaldson to serve as the project's co-producer, the album underscores the band's enduring rank as one of death metal's unwavering stalwarts - leading into the band's 35th anniversary. 

Coupled with the arrival of the new album, Suffocation are hitting the road with a 6-date 'Darkness Within Mexico Tour' in addition to their 'Ancient Unholy Rising Tour ' featuring co-headliners, Incantation.

The 26-date stretch begins November 7th in Baltimore and concludes in Greensboro on December 4th. Skeletal Remains and Stabbing have been sourced as support for all of the North American dates. Get a rundown of the itinerary below. Tickets can be found - HERE
