“The music is barbarically brutish but also eerily extraterrestrial and freakishly fluctuating. The songs are hurricane blasts of multifaceted and mercurial sound.” – No Clean Singing
Technical death metal unit SO THIS IS SUFFERING recently released their Palace Of The Pessimist full-length worldwide via Unique Leader Records . Sain No Clean Singing of its ten tracks, “The sound is unmistakably deathcore, but it’s the kind of deathcore one might imagine being created aboard lightspeed warcraft headed our way from Andromeda. The music is barbarically brutish but also eerily extraterrestrial and freakishly fluctuating. The songs are hurricane blasts of multifaceted and mercurial sound. Yes, there are gigantic, atonal, booming chords that punch hard enough to shiver the foundations of your dwelling, and clobbering breakdowns produced for maximum destructive impact, coupled with kidney-punching riffs and a maniacal mix of howling bellows, gang growls, flesh-melting shrieks, and rancid strangling noises in the vocal department. But… you’ll also find frequent doses of spidery fretwork creating hornet-swarm arpeggios and filaments of luminescent melody, along with demented electronic pulsing and shimmering alien ambience that might put your teeth on edge.”
SO THIS IS SUFFERING’s Palace Of The Pessimist was captured at Mike Sahm at Dream Awake Audio and features artwork by Chris Panatier (Dopelord, Totem Skim). Order bundles for Palace Of The Pessimist are currently available HERE.

“Palace Of The Pessimist is punishment that cannot be unfelt or unheard; it lingers in the mind and on the skin like scars and burns that you can’t feel—like a limb long since removed but you swear you can feel. It is the essence of technically tinted heaviness…” – New Transcendence
