Many of the greatest works of art throughout history were fashioned from grief, anger and overwhelming despair descending on its creators in the aftermath of tragedy and Suicide Silence's appropriately titled 'You Can't Stop Me' is no exception, Plenty of bands trumpet the idea of strength through adversity, but few have lived it like this one.
'You Can't Stop Me' serves as a simultaneous introduction to vocalist Hernan "Eddie" Hermida, as well as a celebration of the brotherhood the band shared with Hermida's fallen predecessor, The group chose the album's title from a collection of lyrics left behind by the late Mitch Lucker, while their formidable revamped sound makes it clear that Suicide Silence's resurrection is complete, Ever since Suicide Silence went public with their plans to continue as a band, they've put all of the emotions from the last two years into these songs.
Mark Heylmun and Chris Garza (guitars), Dan Kenny (bass) and Alex Lopez (drums) sound more driven than ever, force-feeding their mash-up of death metal, black metal, grind and time-signature bending dissonance into structured, focused and often groove-oriented missives of anger and perseverance.
Death metal legend George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher (Cannibal Corpse) and Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Killer Be Killed) make guest appearances, but make no mistake: Suicide Silence is as bonded, as cohesive, as ever, Most bands will declare their most recent album the "best" they've ever done, Suicide Silence have declared 'You Can't Stop Me' as their most impassioned, most committed, and most important release thus far, It's a record they fought, bled, sweated and even cried to make happen, Consequently, it's a record that must be heard, As Suicide Silence have found new life and empowerment in the compositions boiling within 'You Can't Stop Me', so shall their increasingly strong army of supporters, both old and new, who share in that empowerment, If a rising heavy metal band can overcome a tragedy this triumphantly, this definitively, this absolutely, then surely there's hope for us all.
