New York death metal veterans SUFFOCATION have released the cover artwork for their upcoming album „Pinnacle of Bedlam”. Artwork was handled this time around by artist Raymond Swanland! Derek Boyer (bass) commented: “This artwork is a perfect portrayal of our music. The cover depicts lyrical content like "scales tip in degradation" and "hooded messenger of death is now set forth, punishment for all". Raymond is an absolute BEAST of an artist!” Guitar player Guy Marchais adds: “The artwork for Pinnacle brings another element to an already brutal album. Raymond knew exactly what we were looking for and delivered!” The record was produced by the band and tracked at Full Force Studios in New York by longtime collaborator Joe Cincotta. The mixing and mastering was handled this time around by world renowned producer/engineer Zeuss (HATEBREED, ARSIS, SUICIDE SILENCE). „Pinnacle of Bedlam” will be released February 15, 2013 via Nuclear Blast.
