Reissue of the long sold-out second album of the Swedish SUFFOCATE
FOR FUCK SAKE. „Blazing Fires And Helicopters On The Fronpage
...“ was one of the best-known albums of the genre in his time
(2008). Repress appears on CD and as limited double LP on MOMENT
OF COLLAPSE RECORDS.
Undoubtedly, SUFFOCATE FOR FUCK SAKE are among the best kept
underground acts from Sweden. Until 2018, the band has not played
a single show since its existence (2004), but has an excellent reputation
across all disciplines. After the self-titled debut (2004), which
appeared only on CD, the band released in 2008 with the album
„Blazing Fires And Helicopters On The Frontpage Of The Newspaper.
There‘s A War Going On And I Marching In Heavy Boots", a milestone
in the screamo / post-hardcore genre.
Within a short time, the album was sold out and has not been reprinted to this day. Like no other, the band manages to compose an extensive soundscapes, rounded
off by numerous layers of additional instruments and samples.
In addition, the band is not only known to develop album concepts
based on radio reports, but also embed them in the extensive
sound. With such a scope „Blazing Fires“ acts more like a soundtrack
and not like a mere album, which was composed of individual pieces
of music. For fans of CULT OF LUNA, BREACH, ENVY or G!YBE.
