Palace Of The Pessimist is the impending new full-length from California technical death metal unit and recent Unique Leader signees SO THIS IS SUFFERING. Set for a February 24th unveiling, the ten-track offering was captured by Mike Sahm at Dream Awake Audio and features artwork by Chris Panatier (Dopelord, Totem Skim).
In advance of its release, today Revolver Magazine is pleased to reveal the visual companion to fifth album cut, “Columbine.” “Question everything, and understand that the truth is ugly as fuck. Don’t be a part of the corrupted corporate machine,” elaborates vocalist Rudy Flores. “Free your mind. The video captures how easily humans are influenced to lose it all over an obsessiveness. We chose the title ‘Columbine’ because we want people to realize that their perspective can be askew. When you hear ‘Columbine,’ you feel tragedy and fear when it’s also [the name of] a flower; a beautiful creation. We want to thank 1st Degree Entertainment for always bringing the magic out of SO THIS IS SUFFERING and the gorgeous Jordyn Conway for her role in the video. She brought the evilness in the video.”
