Death Metallers Suffocation were inducted into the Long Island Hall Of Fame this past Thursday, October 18th! This makes them the most extreme band to ever be inducted into such a legendary place. The Long Island Hall Of Fame ceremony took place at the Paramount Theater in Long Island, and it honored Long Island's rich musical history.
This past Sunday, October 21, a historic event took place in celebration of the bands amazing accomplishment at Club Revolution in Amityville, New York. Joining SUFFOCATION's celebratory concert were Black Anvil, Killjoy, Ground War, Tomorrows Victim, Thracian and Eviseration.
Prior to the bands crushing performance, we chatted with Frank Mullen (the bands front man and vocalist), and he shocked us with the news that he will not be touring full time with the band upon the release of their NEW album 'The Pinnacle of Bedlam' (set to be released in February/March of 2013 via Nuclear Blast Records) due to his current commitment with his full time job. This obviously sucks, but remember that SUFFOCATION already did some touring without Mullen earlier this year, who was replaced by Decrepit Birth’s Bill Robinson.
Additionally, Mullen discussed the band induction into the Long Island Hall Of Fame and how the music scene has changed in the last 25+years. Without further due, here is out exclusive interview with Frank Mullen from SUFFOCATION!
