Suffocation - Drummer Mike Smith Parts Ways With The Band

Drummer Mike Smith has reportedly parted ways with US death metallers Suffocation. He posted the following message on his website: "There are not many things related to the Suffocation brand I can honestly say brings me sadness. Except, the lack of pride that exists within those who have the 'right' to claim the name as their own. This battle has been one that to any focused being, should make obvious sense but has evaded some for 2 decades. Within any foundation the weakest link will always cause all structure to crumble."
