As previously reported, The History Channel's promo spot to advertise their upcoming show "The Dark Ages", featuring SUFFOCATION performing their original track "Bind, Torture, Kill", has been posted online at this location.

Shot on location at the Greenpoint Terminal in Brooklyn, New York by director Michael Scalere, the spot took one week to produce from concept to finished product.

"The Dark Ages", a two-hour overview of the thousand years after the fall of Rome, is set to air March 4 on The History Channel.

SUFFOCATION drummer Mike Smith commented on the commercial: "It was a great first-time experience working with the TV industry, [and] we hope it won't be our last. Our fans who have seen the promo commercial have stated how highly they regard and respect A&E and The History Channel for being the first to recognize SUFFOCATION and the underground metal genre known as death metal. The History Channel has definitely gained the support and attention of the underground community."

SUFFOCATION recently unveiled the group's first video, for the track "Abomination Reborn", from their self-titled album. The clip was shot in Brooklyn, NY with director Frankie Nasso (MUDVAYNE, HATEBREED, MISERY INDEX) and producers Dale Resteghini and Melissa Manousos of Raging Nations Films. Watch it online at

"Suffocation" saw its North American release on September 19, 2006 via Relapse Records. An e-card previewing "Suffocation", featuring the tracks "Abomination Reborn" and "Blind Torture Kill", can be accessed at this location.
