Biography

One of the best of the American death metal vanguard to emerge in the early 90s, along with Morbid Angel, Deicide and Nile, New York’s Suffocation performed extremely powerful music laced with fairly graphic lyrics. Formed in 1990 by Frank Mullen (January 1970, USA; vocals), Terrance Hobbs (guitar), Doug Cerrito (guitar), Josh Barohn (bass) and Mike Smith (drums), Suffocation recorded a demo, Reincremated, before releasing 1991’s Human Waste EP. They subsequently negotiated a better contract with Roadrunner Records, debuting for the label the same year with Effigy Of The Forgotten. Chris Richards replaced Barohn on 1993’s Breeding The Spawn, while Doug Bohn was brought in to fill the vacant drum position on 1995’s career high Pierced From Within. ex-Malevolent Creation drummer Dave Culross (b. 9 March 1974, USA) joined the band on the final release of their original incarnation, the 1998 EP Despise The Sun.
