Format: Audio CD
This is album number six from Long Island's finest and one of death metal's founding fathers. It is their third album since their reformation in 2003 following a five year hiatus. Blood Oath (2009) is their first for the Nuclear Blast label since their move from Relapse in 2007 and with this release the brutality continues unabated, with Mullen & Co. showing no signs of compromise or age for that matter!

Suffocation have always played a technically superior type of death metal in comparison to their peers and this is probably their best album since Pierced from Within (1995) in terms of technical musicianship. However that is where comparisons with that album end. Throughout the album there just seems to be a lack of memorable songs apart from 3-4 standout tracks which are indeed quite impressive. This results in quite a few `filler' tracks which fail to reach the lofty standards that they themselves have set on previous outings. Their previous self titled album Suffocation (2006) was a much stronger release. Whilst it may not have been as technical as this album it contained far more memorable tracks and in fact it was probably more `brutal' both musically and vocally than Blood Oath.

As a side point I think it is important to mention the packaging. Fans like myself who shell out cash for actual CD's (a rare breed in this `downloading' era) should deserve a high standard of display. Whilst the cover art is impressive the overall inlay and print seems to be rushed and cheaply done in comparison with their last album. Whether this is down to different record labels or the band themselves, one can only guess.

The positives? Well as mentioned, Suffocation's technical musicianship is practically unmatched in death metal.

They produced an album of high caliber and its a damn good listen. I admit I wasn't impressed by their last album so I wasn't sure how this would turn out but hey this CD makes me a proud owner now.
