The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that legendary US death metallers SUFFOCATION have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air 2010. This will be their ONLY UK FESTIVAL appearance in 2010!
Suffocation were formed in New York in 1989 and following the release of a demo entitled Reincremation, the band were picked up by US label Relapse. Their debut EP Human Waste and first full length album Effigy of the Forgotten both emerged in 1991, the latter on Roadrunner Records. The bandâ€™s intense fusion of technicality and brutality proved highly-influential and saw the follow-up efforts Breeding the Spawn (1993) and Pierced from Within (1995) enjoying widespread critical and commercial success. After extensive worldwide touring, the band issued the EP Despise the Sun in 1998 only to disband shortly afterwards.
After reforming in 2003, Suffocation returned to Relapse Records for the release of their 2004 comeback album Souls to Deny. A widely welcomed return, the album launched the highly successful second phase of the bandâ€™s career which has witnessed the release of two further albums â€“ 2006â€™s self-titled effort and 2009â€™s Blood Oath â€“ once again proving both their enduring influence and their ability to mix it with the best that contemporary death metal has to offer.
