As a band from the ’90s, Suiciety are one of those bands that definitely still have it all these years later. Since releasing their debut record Deeper Vision and making the top 10 list for The Age’s Albums of the Year. Crawling Machine Edition is the first taste of new music that we have gotten in quite a while for the band and, to be put simply, it is a welcome return for the group. Opening with ‘Toma Esto Es’, the rhythm section and the soaring vocals of Adam Cooper are what bring a smile to my face at the return of the band. The guitar solo is epic.
Many of the riffs in this EP are delectable and heavy but give us great hope that the stage show is going to be nothing more than a highly sweaty, energetic affair. Finishing with ‘Smell Life By The Sea’ a six minute epic, this is an EP that is sure to have you hitting play immediately after it finishes. It’s intensive punk rock at its 2015 best. It may have been quite a few years between drinks for these boys, but Suiciety is back in a big way and you should check out the fruits of their labour.
