This record serves as a culmination of what the artist has done so far, paying equal tribute to what has come before, the healing that has since taken place, and what her reality is now. While this could be said of all her work as a whole, this record in particular captures where she’s at right now in her musical journey.

While the record is heavy beyond reason, it’s also steady and pulsing, lulling you in, and even though the songs are weirdly chaotic, they are still catchy.

The record is short and fun, so there’s not a ton to deconstruct, but every track is a banger.

Suffer & Become has more that solidified the band as one of the major players in heavy music right now, and we can’t wait to hear what’s next from them.

Each song offers something different that make this EP, although short and sweet, absolute essential listening for fans of either the band or the genre.

Songs are long and epic, and they all flow from one to the next seamlessly. Even though there are only six songs on the album, each one of them takes you on a journey.

From the first riff of the title track to the last refrain, this is an album you’re going to want to keep on rotation if you’re a death metal fan.
90
A blistering and uncompromising assault on the senses.

Just as with their previous collaborations, Suffocating Hallucination is a punishing release that showcases both bands’ unique style while finding a balance that compliments both.
