Suffocation is an American death metal band originating in New York. The band formed in 1988 and approached this genre in their own style, revolving around heavy, uniquely rhythmic riffs and even deeper growling vocals and breakdowns to create a sub-genre of the form often termed "brutal" death metal - also known by many as "New York Death Metal," or "nydm" for short. Other New York death metal bands that soon after followed in the footsteps of Suffocation's style include Immolation, Incantation, Deathrune, Morpheus Descends, Infester and many others.

- LyricsExhume the wretched body from it's timeless slumber.
Thrashing the tomb to reveal what's inside.
A maggot infested corpse stares dismal.
Inhabited by worms chewing holes through your carcass.
These ancient lands beckoned the burial of humans.
- LyricsPenetrate the minds of those misfortuned at birth.
Murder is etched in the deepest chasms of the soul.
Salvation stripped from the origin of existence.
Obstinacy abandons, as you yield your world to me.
Decree of my darkest dreams.
- LyricsForced into your mind, passed down through the centuries
Cultures will collide, holy wars for what?
Holy book of God, holy book of lies
Chanting scriptures in vain, hoping to allow to rest
Hopeful peaceful life, compassion all but gone
- LyricsTorn away from my state of being, chosen to be forgotten.
Unspeakable pain as I leave this solid structure.
As the earth becomes smaller, I reach a new plane.
One so distant from where I was conceived.
A heaping mass of fear is what we hold dear.
