From inception to current times, The Cleansing is widely regarded as an album that sent shockwaves throughout the world, thus putting the ‘Deathcore’ genre on the extreme music map. SUICIDE SILENCE’s sheer brutality ended up inspiring legions of bands to follow suit within this newly created scene, while gaining die-hard fans across the world. At the time of release, The Cleansing entered the US Billboard Top 200 chart at #94, thus making the release one of Century Media’s most successful debut albums!
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 that forever changed the landscape of heavy music. It truly was, and will always be a piece of sonic history and though Mitch Lucker no longer dwells within the physical realm, his legacy will forever live on. The Cleansing re-issue celebrates that legacy and shows exactly why things would never be the same after it’s release.
