Huge news coming from death metal legends Suffocation as drummer Mike Smith has left the band.

Mike Smith has been with Suffocation since they formed in 1989 until he left in 1994 before returning to the band in 2002.

Taking the place of Mike Smith is Dave Culross who is more than capable to to handle the skins for Suffocation.

The last time Suffocation was here they headlined the Summer Slaughter Tour in 2009 and we had one hell of a party. The band will have a new album out later this year and I look forward to getting to talk with guys and hope to see them soon.
