SUSPIRIA got its start as a trio by the name of Corporeal Decay in Crystal Lake, IL in January of 1991. Building upon a melting pot of influences centered around '80s metal, Bay Area and German thrash, and early death metal, within five months the group had released a three-song demo titled Divinely Impaled. Mere months later, the demo was re-released with new artwork, a new logo, and a new band name: SUSPIRIA.
By the end of the following summer in 1992, SUSPIRIA had solidified a five-piece lineup and entered Real to Reel Recording Studio with engineer Bruce Pedersen for their sophomore demo, Psychological Inertia. Eventually released in February of 1993, the extremely professional-looking four-song cassette further improved upon the group's brutal yet sophisticated take on technical death metal, but a period of relative inactivity saw the band perform its final show that July, eventually fading into obscurity by early-1994.
Like fellow Illinois powerhouse Sindrome before them, SUSPIRIA had made an impact on the local scene with their impressive musicianship, but failed to secure a proper recording contract-leaving many fans and friends to simply ponder what could have been. So now, more than two decades after the fact, Divebomb Records is excited to present Psychologically Impaled: SUSPIRIA's complete discography, along with seven bonus live tracks! Fully remastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording, this release provides the material with the attention it has always rightfully deserved-with plenty of lyrics, photographs, and a retrospective band interview conducted by NoEcho.net co-editor Andrew Aversionline. For the fans, by the fans!
