New York death metal legends Suffocation return with ninth full-length album, Hymns From The Apocrypha, on November 3rd via Nuclear Blast Records — the follow-up to ...of the Dark Light (2017) and the first release featuring new vocalist Ricky Meyers. This turbulent beast of a record comes prefaced by the hard-hitting lead single, Seraphim Enslavement, and a wicked Remedy Art Design to boast.

Derek Boyer comments:

“This is my fifth full-length studio album with SUFFOCATION and this album came out SICK! It features all of the brutal, technical, chaotic twists and turns everyone would expect from SUFFOCATION, plus new elements that are out of the normal realm one might expect. This is the sophomore effort of working with Christian Donaldson (who mixed and mastered Live In North America) and he absolutely KILLED IT on this one!!! We can’t wait to bring these songs to the stage and crush everything in our path!”

Ricky Myers adds:

"We are thrilled to unveil our 11th full-length album, Hymns From The Apocrypha, a creatively composed piece that blends our style of music with lyrical depth and intricate artwork. This album is a testament to our devotion to brutal music, which we display in the video of our single, 'Seraphim Enslavement', a visual journey that complements the album's concept."

Stream Seraphim Enslavement below and pre-order the album via Nuclear Blast.
