There is little doubt in anyone's minds that Suicide Silence are one of the frontrunners of the new wave of American metal, a statement further validated as the group won the "Best New Talent" Award at the inaugural Revolver Golden Gods Awards, held at Club Nokia in Los Angeles on April 7th, 2009. The group was also hailed as the event's breakthrough artist by the LA Times, but make no mistake that this extreme juggernaut is not resting on their laurels and are about to take things up a notch with their highly anticipated sophomore release, No Time To Bleed, which was produced by the acclaimed Machine (Lamb Of God). This new effort promises to make their debut offering seem like easy listening.

Impetuous Ritual - Unholy Congregation Of Hypocritical Ambivalence

For all seasoned members of our beloved death metal cult, shock value isn't a thing anymore. The walls of sound are hardly impenetrable and all the pieces fall into place with ease. Our attraction towards more extreme and intricate metal is fueled by our desire to go back to that time where chaos was the norm and order was our goal.
