So This Is Suffering are a band from California that plays a technical mixture of death metal and deathcore and this is a review of their 2017 album "Palce of The Pessimist" which will be released in February by Unique Leader.
A very heavy guitar sound starts off the album along with some deathcore style riffing a few seconds later and the vocals are mostly deep death metal growls and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and high pitched screams are also used in some parts of the songs.
A great amount of technical style riffing can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion and there i also a brief use of spoken word samples and the album also remains very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording.
So This Is Suffering plays a musical style that takes deathcore and mixes it with technical death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover violent and real life themes.
In my opinion So This Is Suffering are a very great sounding mixture of deathcore and technical death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sleeper Hold" "Palace" "Portraits Of Fixation" and "The Sum Of All Fears". 8 out of 10.
