I know there are a lot of purists out there who will go to their grave defending the theory that Suicide Silence invented deathcore. While the band was definitely around during the genre's formative years, I still gotta give credit to Carnifex for refining the sound into what it is known for today (and bringing it to the masses), for better or for worse. In a nutshell, Carnifex just sound better - there's nothing Suicide Silence has ever released that has warranted more than a passing acknowledgement save the above. In 2008 the group released this limited 7" solely notable for its solid cover of Deftones' "9 Words". There's also a cut from their debut LP and a live track but I don't think I've ever bothered to listen to either.
