An upbeat double bass pattern kicks in with “Suffocation By The Hands Of Man.” This track holds more of a thrash feel with its constant kick snare patterns mixed with aggressive growls that are thrown at you with quickness. The guitar riffs are interesting as they constantly switch up from melodic riffs to mashed up chugging riffs.
