Succumb "Self Titled"

Format

San Francisco’s Succumb plumb the depths of modern death metal with primitive elegance, but what sets them apart from their peers is vocalist Cheri Musrasrik. The juxtaposition of death metal riffing and propulsive drums with Musrasrik’s cavernous howl and sophisticated lyrics make for a unique listening experience in today’s crowded landscape.

Succumb was formed in 2014 by a group of friends with diverse musical backgrounds, who share a common love for Canadian death metal, war metal, and 1990’s Napalm Death. That same year they released a demo under the name Cloak and played a handful of local shows, attracting the attention of The Flenser. The following year they were joined by Harry Cantwell (Bosse-de-Nage, ex-Slough Feg) on drums and got to work writing their self-titled debut album. Succumb was recorded by bay area luminary Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Bosse-de-Nage, Botanist, Oathbreaker, etc.).

Musrasrik cites authors and poets like Yeats, Jean Genet and Emile Zola as her primary lyrical influences. Throughout Succumb she tackles themes such as human experimentation, autoerotic asphyxiation, BDSM, prostitution, opium dens and dystopias with a literary flair.
