Technical death metal unit SO THIS IS SUFFERING will drop their Palace Of The Pessimist full-length worldwide via Unique Leader Records this Friday. Today No Clean Singing is streaming the record in its punishing entirety before you can buy it, issuing of its ten tracks, "The sound is unmistakably deathcore, but it's the kind of deathcore one might imagine being created aboard lightspeed warcraft headed our way from Andromeda. The music is barbarically brutish but also eerily extraterrestrial and freakishly fluctuating.The songs are hurricane blasts of multifaceted and mercurial sound. Yes, there are gigantic, atonal, booming chords that punch hard enough to shiver the foundations of your dwelling, and clobbering breakdowns produced for maximum destructive impact, coupled with kidney-punching riffs and a maniacal mix of howling bellows, gang growls, flesh-melting shrieks, and rancid strangling noises in the vocal department. But... you'll also find frequent doses of spidery fretwork creating hornet-swarm arpeggios and filaments of luminescent melody, along with demented electronic pulsing and shimmering alien ambience that might put your teeth on edge."

SO THIS IS SUFFERING is a post-deathcore outfit founded by Zedadiah Martinez and Zechariah Gamez in 2006. The band later solidified its lineup with longtime friends Rudy Florez, Robert Brown, and James Williams. The band self-released three albums and have relentlessly performed across the United States multiple times earning a name as one of the heaviest and hardest-working currently active DIY bands.
"Palace Of The Pessimist is punishment that cannot be unfelt or unheard; it lingers in the mind and on the skin like scars and burns that you can't feel-like a limb long since removed but you swear you can feel. It is the essence of technically tinted heaviness..." - New Transcendence
