I enjoyed my introduction to Suffocating Lie and I want to give a big shout out of appreciation to, Suffocating Lie’s drummer, Topher Jones for reaching out to San Diego Blather via Instagram. Eventually, I would have ran across Suffocating Lie on my own but Topher made the introduction quicker and easier. Especially, as things are now. Right? Like all of you, I cannot wait to see and experience the rush of live music. This Southern California band  is going to deliver a huge amount of  much needed stress relieving metal mayhem once the state wide lockdown is lifted. To amp you up for the pits – here is your introduction to Suffocating Lie!

Bio found on Suffocating Lie on Facebook

“Fusing deep, deadly riffs with earth – shattering drops and merciless, guttural vocal screams; A Suffocating Lie are an emerging metal band based out of California, USA. In just a year since forming, the fierce four-piece has performed alongside numerous iconic acts such as Dead American, Secrets and We Came As Romans, gracing the stage with countless top-tier venues such as Chain Reaction, Rainbow Bar & Grill and House of Blues; just to name a few. They released their debut single “All the Marbles” in 2019, with a full EP due out in early 2020. The project all started when vocalist Rich, met up with current guitarist Trevor and they started experimenting in his backyard. The lineup became complete after Rich contracted some old friends from his previous band “Recreate” to hire bassist, Marcelo and drummer, Drew. Each musician hails from a variety of different musical influences; from System of a Down to Amon Amarth, all the way to Chelsea Grin and even Johnny Cash. The Resulting sound is darkly sinister and dizzingly fresh spin on the essentials of the Metalcore genre. A Suffocating Lie aim to bring people together through their savage, metal anthems, in hopes of providing the same kind of happiness and healing that music did to them growing up. “
