|Interview with Mike Smith of the legendary New York Death Metal band SUFFOCATION
"I think at this point in our career most know what to expect from Suffocation. We don’t strive to change the formula we know works."
"We recorded ‘Effigy of the Forgotten' in 2 weeks and could play it in our sleep in 89'. That album is still over the top for today's standards. It's the industry that prevented us from sprouting our wings fully."
"‘Effigy…' is the blueprint for all that is Suffocation. ‘Breeding the Spawn' was the next level of our growth that needed to be. Unfortunately it was put in the wrong hands for production. The bad production set us back a lot mentally. A lot of work went into writing that style at that time."
"Suffocation will always be a band of unfinished business. Major tours have come and gone without us. Until the kids see us up against what they think is extreme and aggressive, they will never know the truth. We are never the weak link on any tour or stage; the new generation has been sheltered."
