Suffocation is an American death metal band that was formed in 1988 in Centereach, Long Island, New York. The band comprises vocalist Frank Mullen, guitarists Terrance Hobbs and Guy Marchais, drummer Kevin Talley and bassist Derek Boyer. Suffocation rose to the prominence of death metal creating a blueprint for the genre for the 1990s with their 1991 debut album Effigy of the Forgotten, and have released seven studio albums since formation. The band’s raw death metal style uses growled vocals with a down tuned guitar sound, fast and complex guitar riffs and drumming, and a sophisticated sense of songwriting.
