Suffocation's 1995 release 'Pierced From Within' isn't regarded as a landmark in death metal for nothing. Scott Burns' production is a perfect fit for such an album like this one, in which every instrument makes a standout, and it gives it a true dark feel. Each song on the album strays away from the conventionality that the genre is rather known to cause by using complex structures. Listening to the title track for example is difficult to pull yourself away from, because with its frantic pace, the sudden slowdown gives the ears a intriguing surprise. Each song is able to switch tempos at such a pace without it sounding pretentious at all, which Suffocation deserves plenty of respect for in the metal community. Songs such as “The Invoking” and “Suspended In Tribulation” perfects the use of brutal riffs and solos here, and even the bass guitar plays a big role, especially on the priceless intro to "Depths of Depravity". When 'Pierced from Within' clearly delivers what the fans of the genre want, what is there to complain about? If you're not a fan of death metal, why even bother?
