Mark Heylmun/ Suicide Silence
SUICIDE SILENCE adheres to no preconceived notions and refuses to be pigeonholed into any specific genre. The juxtaposition of each member's talents creates an explosive, yet exciting result that is sure to keep the entire scene on their toes and wondering just what is coming next. Their music clearly represents their many influences, incorporating a savage mix of death metal, grindcore, black metal, hardcore and doom elements into each track. The group's most notable and defining niche is defying the genre's predictable conventions, striving to create something more exciting and unique. The songs are dynamic and crushing, shifting effortlessly from insane grind chaos into surgically precise, disorienting time signatures topped off with snail-paced grooves and destructive breakdowns. Guitarist Mark Heylmun, plays the EMG-707 and says of it "It's absolutely right for my sound because I like it to be fat and loud, yet smooth and articulate"
