Few bands can be credited with creating a legacy, however, legendary New York based extreme metal outfit SUFFOCATION have done just that. For 20 years now SUFFOCATION have been creating music that has become the very standard by which we judge all things extreme.

Their fusion of technicality, groove and sheer unrelenting brutality has been imitated but never quite duplicated. Milestone ... Read more in Amazon's Suffocation Store

Breeding the Spawn is the second full-length album by Suffocation. Though it still employs the characteristics and elements associated with Suffocation's song writing, the production on the album is much thinner than on other albums, due to financial problems regarding their label Roadrunner Records. However it shows a more complex and technical side of the band. Most likely to make up for the relatively poor production on the album, tracks from Breeding the Spawn were re-recorded for inclusion on four Suffocation albums to date: "Breeding the Spawn" on Pierced from Within; "Prelude to Repulsion" and "Anomalistic Offerings" on Suffocation (the latter found on the Japanese version of the album); "Marital Decimation" on Blood Oath; "Beginning of Sorrow" on Pinnacle of Bedlam.

Despite the fact about the quality of the production of Breeding the Spawn, I actually don't think the production is of poor quality at all. I believe Breeding the Spawn is another fantastic album by Suffocation, who are one of my favourite death metal bands of all time.

3.0 out of 5 stars BAD production 25 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
First things first. Suffocation are one of THE most influential death metal bands EVER. However, if you want their best album get Pierced, followed by Effigy and then this one. The main reason (and it's a big one) is that the production is really poor. The guitars and drums are really muffled and the bass is almost non-existant. The best track was re-recorded for the Pierced album anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 2nd album 24 Aug 2005
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Suffocation's debut album Effigy of the Forgotten is rightly considered as one of the greatest death metal albums ever recorded, but sadly second album Breeding the Spawn is a rather lacklustre follow-up. The one positive thing one can say about this album is that the band are technically proficient, but unfortunately Suffocation have fallen into the trap here of concentrating so much on technical prowess that they completely forgot to actually write any decent songs for this album, with a distinct lack this time round of any standout riffs or interesting vocal rhythms. The result is an album that is impressively complex, yet so lacking in decent songwriting that it soon becomes boring. To add to the disappointment those odd moments when the band slip into a solid groove worthy of their debut album are smothered by the poor production, which gives the band a muddy sound. Not actually awful - just a very mediocre and unmemorable death metal album, which for Suffocation makes this their sole misfire, and by far their least impressive recording. The band would return to form, but this misguided 2nd album really set the bands career back, and is really only recommended for Suffocation completists.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best Suffocation album... 17 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
I didn't spend a lot of time listening to Suffocation. But I can say that this was the only album of theirs that I actually really found any interest in. I find that the album Effigy Of The Forgotten is a very boring listen and Pierced From Within is just too predictable and lacks anything new to add to the death metal genre. But Breeding The Spawn is an album that I could probably sit through.The vocals sound more relaxed, but also have a jumpy sort of feel to them which was not displayed at all on Effigy. Yes the production was pretty bad on this album, but that is one feature I find interesting, especially that the bass was turned down to a listenable volume. The lyrics are also something worth a mention, there is no structure, which I also find to be very interesting, no choruses here just book reading. This is the only Suffocation CD that doesn't annoy me, well I haven't heard their new stuff, but I don't really know if want to either.
Overall, this is a CD worth having in your collection, but if you want something good then buy VADER - The Ultimate Incantation or MALEVOLENT CREATION - Retribution, they are 2 top notch releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the same? 10 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This release wasn't viewed in the same light as their previous offering 'Effigy Of The Forgotten', but the one major thing about this album is that it contains 9 new songs! Effigy had two re-workings (Infecting The Crypts, and Jesus Wept), and Pierced also had two re-workings (Breeding The Spawn, and Synthetically Revived), so this is technically a better album for that, but the same problem that plagued Suffocation throughout their caree struck again - a not so decent drummer compared the rest of the guys. This was finally sorted out in time for their last release, 'Despise The Sun', but sadly, they broke up not long after. This record contains many of the same elements that captured so many people from the first two releases, and that's the sheer technicality, but catchiness of it. The riffs are hard to remember, but once it get's to you, you can't escape. The lyrics have always been interesting too, and not concentrating on immature gore either (although it can be fun!).
Essential listening for anyone who loves very technical death metal (like me). Very underrated because of Effigy.
