(AUS) Hailing from the most remote capital city on the planet, Perth sextet Make Them Suffer have been honing their razor sharp blend of frostbitten black metal, fiery hardcore and gothic misery since 2008. Partnering with global heavy metal powerhouse Roadrunner Records for 2012’s critically acclaimed debut, Neverbloom, the band hit the road with the likes of Northlane, Bleeding Through, Job For A Cowboy and Thy Art Is Murder to spread the nightmare throughout Australia, Europe and the UK.
Now in 2015, it is time to draw back the curtains on Make Them Suffer’s brand new album Old Souls, slated for release on May 29. Created in the shadows over the last year and tended to by a who’s who of heavy music producers, with Jason Suecoff (The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium), Joey Sturgis (Emmure, Asking Alexandria), Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus) and Roland Lim (Make Them Suffer – Neverbloom, I Am Zero) all getting involved, Old Souls sees Make Them Suffer expanding their sonic universe and exploring new territory without sacrificing the vicious metallic attack that first drew fans across the world to them.
Whether it’s the furious blasting of ‘Threads’, the mournful cinematic dirge of ‘Timeless’ or manic piano signature piercing the thunderous breakdowns of ‘Scraping The Barrel’, Old Souls is the evolution heavy music has been waiting for. First cut from the album came in the form of ‘Let Me In‘ which the band released as a single in May last year and now fans can now get another taste with latest single ‘Requiem‘ which has just been released along with the Old Souls digital pre-order via iTunes. Physical pre-order bundles are also now available here.
Make Them Suffer will be hitting the road this June to showcase their new record to audiences nationwide on the Old Souls Australian Tour. With an emphasis on smaller capacity venues, tickets for these intense performances won’t last long. Joining them are English bruisers and originators of down tempo deathcore, Black Tongue, plus Melbourne’s I Valiance.
