From El Paso, Texas, Know//Suffer wields a dark strain of death metal-infused hardcore, thick with shifty rhythms, nasty pick scrapes, and double-bass flurries. At the helm, frontman Toast Williams bucks all expectations of the genre with a vocal approach that is earnest and yearning and rife with poetic lyrics navigating personal and political struggles; in a sea of vocalists aspiring to inhuman levels of toughness, Toast steers the other way, back toward humanity.
Know//Suffer’s mix of these two opposing elements – mosh pit terror meets heart-on-sleeve vulnerability – sets the band apart from the hordes. It is as if the brute force of Code Orange and the emotional depth of Burn were united under one Texan roof.
