What a totally justifiable and reasonable rating DoctorVelvet

Unfortunately Pinnacle of Bedlam solidifies what their last few records were hinting at: Suffocation aren't at all what they used to be and won't be renewing their spark any time soon. Oh well, they still play death metal better than half of their competitors. I'll give them that.

I wish I could find a girl that dug some death metal.

It's getting to the point where these New Yorkers can do no wrong. While they haven't released any classics since the 1990's, Suffocation are still better than just about every other "brutal" death metal band out there. It do what it do.

4.5 superbAnthracks | February 16th 13

The most energetic, and overall best Suffocation album since Pierced From Within. For the first time in over a decade, the band feels alive and passionate about the music they are making.

after finally giving it a full listen, i came to find that this release is just as solid as everyone says it is. a prime example of an excellent tech-death album.

More focused and less experimental than the previous release, "Pinnacle of Bedlam" has all the elements you'd expect to hear on a Suffocation album. Excellent addition to any smart extreme metal collection.

4.0 excellentManintheBox | October 2nd 13

On Pinnacle of Bedlam Suffocation seemingly without breaking a sweat create one of the best most brutal technical Death metal albums of 2013. Every song is a solid slab of dizzying riffs played over absolutely pummeling drums and apocalyptic lyrics, executed perfectly by Frank Mullen. That being said, Suffocation really hit their stride with the solos, thank you Terrance Hobbs. Every guitar solo possesses its own unique structure and actually has form and emotion to it making it more than plain old technical wizardry, just look at the title track. Suffocation while not reinventing the wheel once again show all the bands they inspired how to properly construct a memorable and brutal tech deth album. Best songs: Sullen Days, Purgatorial Punishment, Rapture of Revocation.

3.5 greatbigbrownbeaver | June 2nd 13

Suffocation, unlike many bands, seems to improve over the length of their career. After all is said and done,this is a solid death metal album; no more, no less.
