Suicidius - Supremacy of Destruction album cover

SUICIDIUS are a band out of Nuremberg, Germany. They were formed in 2014 and in 2015 they released their first demo. Afterwards, in 2018, they released their first EP called ''When We Come To Town'' and earlier this year they finally released their first full-length titled ''Supremacy of Destruction''. Not much is known about the band and they were totally strangers to me so I jumped in the listening of the album with no idea whatsoever beforehand.

They are quite young and have that unbridled energy you want to see from a newer band. Ranging from 19 to 22 years old, they obviously have youth on their side and it's a pretty energetic first album. They also a great record label behind them in 7Hard Records. This label is highly regarded in Europe and for those who didn't know, it was founded by legendary Rock Promoter Hans Derer who brought bands like METALLICA, URIAH HEEP and SURVIVOR to Europe back in the eighties. 7Hard are always hard (no pun intended) at work for their bands and give the accurate backing so bands can do we they do best.

They combine the Thrash Metal elements of crossover bands like D.R.I. with the added touch of Groove Metal. They try to differentiate themselves from other bands of the genre. As for originality, it's pretty much deja-vu unfortunately. There is nothing mindblowing in what they do but they have that overabundance of energy, sometimes it's a bit frantic. They seem to try a bit too hard to be edgy. Using a lot of curse words (even in two of their song titles) doesn't really impress to be perfectly honest with you guys.

I saw some live clips here and there after listening to the album and they have some really raw energy and it seems like a big party. Look, they really look they are having the time of their lives out there. They are not pushing any boundaries and its sounds a bit like old school PANTERA mixed with the crossover bands we have discovered these last few years like HAVOK, IRON REAGAN amongst others. It has that old school vibe and when you have youth on your side, you can deliver something a bit different.

Is it memorable? Absolutely. Is it original? Not really but I like the energy and I really like the flow of the album. It goes pretty fast even though some songs are very interchangeable. It won't reinvent the wheel but it's an enjoyable ride nonetheless.
