Cast your mind back to the mid 90’s Australian rock scene. This was the ‘Golden Age’ of independent music. The Australian indie scene was thriving with bands like You Am I, The Meanies and Spiderbait were all touring the country, relentlessly playing to massive crowds and major festivals. It was inner city bands like Suiciety that were slaying the clubs throughout these years, and it was the small places like The Tote Hotel and The Punters Club where the real breeding ground was. These places were always packed on the weekends where all the misfits and gutter rats would congregate. Suiciety would play these places, amongst others, on a regular basis and as the band grew, they supported bigger bands like Fear Factory, Body Count and Sepultura. During these years the band released the albums Deeper Vision, Primrose Path and the EP Cell.

Their new EP Crawling Machine Edition was written during these years but never released. The first track 'Toma Esto Es' is a brutal slaying opener. Adam Cooper’s vocals are the perfect mix of melodic rock and hard thrash. Whilst the dual guitar work of Karsten Poll and Ramon Varela bring the thrash to the forefront, with buzzsaw riffs that pulsate like a killer on the run.

The track 'Listen' keeps up the pace. Its slow burning riff manipulates its rhythm into the listeners’ ears, like a starving earworm that has not eaten for a month. It curls its way around until the worm explodes and it bleeds its metal riff all throughout the listeners body.

'Ok Pill' rips out like a getaway car, that has just robbed a bank. It speeds along with no brakes and it fishtails and does burnouts, until there is no rubber left on the tyres.

The final track, 'Smell Life By The Sea' is reminiscent of Black Sabbath’s 'Planet Caravan' with its gargled vocals. Its fat riffage blows its stoner smoke all over the place and it casts a spell with its hypnotic rhythm section.

Suiciety are currently touring on the back of the this release. If you are new to the band, or a fan from back in the day - get along and support the boys as well as our thriving metal scene.
