Suicide Silence – Become The Hunter (Nuclear Blast)

It’s probably not fishing in a hyperbolic pond to suggest that Suicide Silence, since their inception way back in 2002, have undergone what could best be described as a number of anus horribilis in recent times. But let me cleave… Continue Reading →
