Eddie Hermida of Suicide Silence

When I interviewed Suicide Silence vocalist, Eddie Hermida in October 2015 (read here), he had a strong statement for fans about the direction of the band’s new album:

We’re looking to burn bridges, man. We’re looking for kids to either sink or swim with us. If you’re at all hesitant about our band, if you don’t get our motives and if you don’t get our position in the world and you don’t get where our music comes from, then you’re gonna be one of those fans that gets left behind. It’s one of those things where this next future, this next road for us is gonna be something that is really gonna put us to the test for ourselves more than anybody else. It’s almost one of those things where it might even completely bomb, and we don’t care. It’s one of those things where we’re literally at a point that we’re not allowed to not take chances anymore. We’re not allowed to play the safe road anymore.

With the release of the new self-titled Suicide Silence record (Feb. 24, 2017,  Nuclear Blast) (read review), Eddie and the band kept their word. Actually, two words: clean vocals. And that’s just the start. Yes, the new album is not safe at all. It all but abandons the band’s deathcore sound and has turned into one of the more controversial metal releases in recent memory. In fact, it’s facing St. Anger/Risk/Illud Divinum Insanus-levels of fan backlash. Acclaimed nu-metal producer Ross Robinson, who was integral in the beginning for bands like Korn, Fear Factory, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot in finding their signature styles, takes Suicide Silence and transforms it into a different band. 

As Suicide Silence is about to hit the road supporting the new album, Eddie called into Live Metal’s Jeff Maki to discuss the stylistic changes of the band, fan reaction to the album and his recent online feud with Australian deathcore band Thy Art is Murder. (more…)

Thy Art is Murder: "Tho Shall Hate"

Thy Art is Murder: “Tho Shall Hate”

Sydney, Australia’s Thy Art is Murder is a dead-on representation of the sound a modern-day metal band should encompass; an exciting molding of subgenres coated with death and decay, and an overall disgust for all aspects of life. All this is compacted into one brutal new album, appropriately called Hate (April 2, 2013), the band’s second full-length effort and first for Nuclear Blast Records. With influences ranging from The Black Dahlia Murder and Behemoth to hardcore, Thy Art is Murder is brutal alright–you almost have to hear it to believe it. And from Australia, you say? (more…)
