This album entered the Billboard Top 200 at number 32.
Across an intense 10 tracks of extreme Metal, Suicide Silence unloads on the listener with one hard hitting song after another, touching on a range of destructive forces we're faced with on a daily basis. Vocally it is all-out with no melodic interludes as you'd expect from a band like Slipknot. The production by Machine is clinical, but intense. The cover design sets out to be violently provocative, but the images of brutal murder aftermath will be seen as a reaction against what's really going on in the world (when perceived by someone who is balanced enough to see that) - I cannot help but feel the male on female violence (just like in movies) transcends attempts to bring it to our attention and simply perpetuates the problem by making these images seem cool and acceptable.
