Thrones of metal...

Genre: brutal death metal

After the badly produced and disappointing sophomore album "Breeding the Spawn", Suffocation strike back with one of the best brutal death metal releases of the 1990s.

Like most of Suffocation's other albums (ignoring "Breeding the Spawn), "Pierced from Within" is, in many ways, the epitome of the perfect brutal death metal album with its American-style blast beats and quite dynamically structured musical compositions, which contain several technical and challenging riffs and numerous changes in time and tempo.

The only thing that I am not too keen on here is the vocals, which I think are too monotonous, but that is a common problem I have with the growled vocals of the death metal of the 90s.

In all, this is one of those important death metal releases that belong in any self-respecting extreme metal fan's record collection.
