Suffocation Stream Live Recording of “Pierced From Within”


Suffocation have released a live iteration of the title track from their 1995 classic, Pierced From Within.

The track will appear on Live in North America, an upcoming collection of recordings from the death metal band’s 2019 tour. The trek marked iconic frontman Frank Mullen’s final tour before retiring from the band.

Guitarist Terrance Hobbs comments:

“Hope you all enjoy this live version of ‘Pierced From Within.’ This song has always been a staple of the Suffocation arsenal as it’s one of our favorite musical pieces to play. When going through the live recording and figuring out which songs to tease this release we didn’t even have a second thought when it came to ‘Pierced From Within’ and we couldn’t be more proud of how this live version sounds.

“This song has transcended almost 3 decades and still holds its potency in our set to this very day as well as being intricate with breaking major ground for us in the death metal world since its original release. Hope you all crank it out loud and let Suffocation fill your homes with some of our best death metal through the years!”

Listen below. Live in North America is out November 12. The group previously released a recording of “Funeral Inception” from the collection as well.

Last year, MetalSucks readers overwhelmingly voted Pierced From Within to be the best Suffocation album. The record’s cover art alone has a fascinating history; you can learn all about that here.
