Despite it only being April, there have been some absolutely staggeringly good releases so far. I thought that it might be pertinent to show just what kind of calibre of releases we have been treated to in the first four months of the year and its an absolute white wash across the board of talent.
They say that you make your mind up about a person within 10 seconds meeting them. Quickly made, judgement can often be wrong after the initial reaction. Putting their backs up against the wall, this year Suicide Silence released their polarising self titled record. Almost universally panned by fans, though personally I loved the record, it has been somewhat of a divide in the fan base. Wrapping up their first run of UK shows in London, Suicide Silence bare their newly sharpened, slightly adjusted teeth to the crowd tonight.
Having released their controversial self titled record, Suicide Silence have begun a bold new chapter in their story. After a short run of American shows for the album’s release the band headed over to the U.K. for their first tour featuring new material.
Shown a blank piece of paper, we have all been given the task of writing whatever we want down. Exactly that, whatever you want.

Walking around in the modern day, the ability to have a conversation is somewhat of a novelty. So engrossed in their own portrayal in this cyberworld we call the Internet, they are beginning to miss the world itself around them. Ranging from pictures and videos, people would rather isolate themselves, together in proximity yet entirely separate on their phones. Inflating the idea of nonexistence and non consequential remarks online, there has been more evidence of cyber bullying being on the rise.

As much as there has been some absolutely pedigree Metal released in 2016, it was perhaps not the best of years. Trump is soon to be president, we lost a truly insane amount of celebrities amongst some were David Bowie, not to mention all the disasters that occurred every day and to cap it all off the horrendous news of Team Rock’s potential demise.
At last they’re back.
As we roll into 2017, Suicide Silence will getting things kickstarted in February with their new album.
Set to appear later this month over in the UK with Caliban, the band have been forced to postpone their tour sadly.
