Album Review: Suffer – Grand Canvas of the Aesthete


Hailing from South Dakota, Suffer has been creating death metal since 1990. The three-piece band are back with their newest album Grand Canvas of the Aesthete, a brutal beat down of wailing guitars, crushing drums, and harrowing screams. The album is nothing short of morbid and heavy, delivering some really great death metal tracks to plan out your funeral to.

Clocking in at 44 minutes, Grand Canvas of the Aesthete embodies everything the death metal genre is known for. Suffer’s instrumentals create a dynamic soundscape that, at times, can be horrific. Destructive drumming leads the charge in many of the songs, clearing a path for the guitars and growls that follow. The guitars shift between brutal chugs to crying solos. The vocals don’t hold back, delivering a killer performance that will stay with you for a while. The album will certainly ignite the metalhead in you.

In only eight tracks, Suffer does not let up. Tracks like “Inhalent Caustic Foray” and “Carnal Flesh Parade” will bring a beat down to your ears. Every track on the album seems to be wrapped in a morbid and destitute package that, once opened, punches you in the face. You will be hard up to find something that comes to close to the sound on this album.

Grand Canvas of the Aesthete is a great death metal album, giving fans exactly what they want. Suffer brought the heat on this album, delivering track after track of devastating death metal for the masses. If you’re a fan of metal, you need to check this album out. It is an experience, and I think you’ll be listening to it for a while.
