To the very day, "The Cleansing" is widely regarded as a scathing blast of sheer brutality and intensity that has sent shockwaves throughout the scene, put the 'deathcore' genre on the musical map, inspired legions of bands and gathered thousands of fans to its cause. "The Cleansing" entered the US Billboard Top 200 chart at #94 upon release and became one of Century Media's most successful debut albums ever while sounding utterly extreme! Produced by John Travis (Kid Rock, Static-X), mixed by Tue Madsen (Dark Tranquillity, The Haunted), and rounded off by outstanding artwork by Dave McKean (Machine Head, Testament), "The Cleansing" hit the scene like a bomb fusing brutal US death metal (Suffocation, Hate Eternal, Dying Fetus) with slamming grooves known from classic hardcore, and rabid, growled and screamed vocals unmatchable in their ferocity.
"The Cleansing" kicked off a rapid ascent to fame for the Californian band, which grew even more successful with each of the following records.
Unfortunately, singer Mitch Lucker, known for his incredible stage performances, died in a motorcycle accident on November 1st, 2012, but in the following years SUICIDE SILENCE proved to be unstoppable despite the lasting shadow of this tragedy.
