Suicide Silence singer reflects on poor sales of new LP

Saturday, March 11, 2017 11:01 AM PT / 16,482 views
In a new interview, Suicide Silence vocalist Eddie Hermida has addressed the disappointing sales of the band's new album, in addition to those eager to disparage their new material. The entire interview can be heard via MetalFrenzy.net, but we've transcribed some of the telling portions for you here:
"Everything seems to be crumbling to pieces, and that is exactly what is going to make me go harder, and push harder, and just become a better musician. Everything that is happening is happening for a reason, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of everything. ... "This is the record that we were born to make as a band. Everything that has ever led up to this very moment... I was born to create that record. I was born to sound exactly like I sound on that record. I was born to take all the flak. I was born to understand and grow from what happened on this record. ... "This record was 100% the culmination of how hiding and making yourself that little fly on the wall, as opposed to standing firm and being who you're supposed to be, it can kill you inside. It can make you feel like you're not worth anything. Even if you sell 16,000 records and you end up with No. 13 on the Top 200 Billboard list, you can still feel empty inside if you're not following your heart 100%. ... "When you realize that everything in your life has brought you to that spot, it makes everything feel so full circle; it makes everything feel so right. There's nothing really that can take that away from me, and as much as people are trying right now, I think they're failing because, everything that people say makes me stronger. Every shot that tries to get fired at me just makes me a stronger person, and that's all that this record has shown me: you still can't stop me."

Wtf am I reading

shut up jerk. This was nothing short of a complete national embarrassment... zero breakdowns = zero back. Cut your losses, disband immediately (RIP Mitch), reform All shall perish and actually put out respectable material. 'Deathcore' Jon np: all shall perish - wage slaves


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:16:34 AM

Whose reading this shit. I just stopped by to say you're all jerks and I love you all very much.


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:16:37 AM

Sales is not all that disappointing...at the .99 cents rack at your nearby used CD store.

You think he was filling out job applications while he was giving this interview?


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:19:55 AM

What's sad is that this is actually their heaviest and darkest album yet and because they aren't doing the cookie cutter deathcore sound anymore they are taking a beating for what is truly a great album!


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:20:03 AM

"This is the record that we were born to make as a band. " That's what Winger said after "In the heart of the young" came out.


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:33:42 AM

no one buys records anymore anyways guys. don't feel bad, doesn't mean anything. good dudes, they have been through a lot. respect.


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:50:48 AM

TEEEHEEEEEEEE TEEHEEEE HEEEEEE TEHEEEEEEEE TEEEHEEEE HEEEEE jared dines ended this band


anonymous 3/11/2017 12:02:45 PM

"Everything that is happening is happening for a reason, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of everything." Really, you couldn't be happier with the outcome?? So if your record had actually done well you wouldn't have been any happier? This dude is still in some serious denial.


anonymous 3/11/2017 12:10:02 PM

Vocals are really lacking on this record, live performances and everyone knows it, Chino?


anonymous 3/11/2017 12:22:28 PM

How in the fck was this band born to make this record? This asshat had nothing wrong with deathcore on the last record and the entire career of All Shall Perish! So here he comes to further shit up a shit band with his Deftones boner and says it was his born legacy to write a shitty nu-metal record? sagea just blame it on drugs and alcohol and we'll give it a pass.


anonymous 3/11/2017 1:01:44 PM

the term "Couldnt be better" is a flagrant lie... like as though life wouldnt be REMOTELY better if you actually cracked 100k albums


anonymous 3/11/2017 1:30:38 PM

Everyone that can't comprehend this albums artistic value to the industry is an idiot. -LouiG

What's sad is that this is actually their heaviest and darkest album yet and because they aren't doing the cookie cutter deathcore sound anymore they are taking a beating for what is truly a great album! Fucc off ed boy, shitty numetal deftones worship about your oneitus does not make a heavier record


anonymous 3/11/2017 2:05:16 PM

Thank God suicide silence didn't put out another breakdown bullshit record. This album is exactly what this stale scene needed.


anonymous 3/11/2017 2:22:24 PM

eddie? is that you? ^^^


anonymous 3/11/2017 2:45:31 PM

Everyone needs to stop disrespecting the Deftones and comparing this garbage to them. Deftones are still incredibly popular and still sell records while not trying to sound like anyone else, and always evolving their sound. Show some goddamn respect.


anonymous 3/11/2017 2:50:08 PM

^ no problem, Chino!?!?!?!?


anonymous 3/11/2017 3:07:58 PM

That was the biggest pile of bullshit I have EVER read.

anonymous 3/11/2017 3:48:33 PM

Full of heart, lacking in skill to execute desired goal, ignorantly prideful because the only other choices are to lash out or cave. Feel for the guy, but you're not supposed to self-title, put your face on the cover, say this is your defining moment, then release a gaygy art-alt-metal?-rock record that doesn't come close to the quality of any of the obvious influences. Think shit through.


anonymous 3/11/2017 4:50:42 PM

This album rocks. Deathcore has become borecore, the genre is dead. Thanks whitechappel and their cohorts. Bring on the new wave.

"I was boooooorn to love you." -Ty Webb


anonymous 3/11/2017 5:13:04 PM

This dude has seriously always been the biggest douchebag. Eat a mangy cat jerk, you egotistical sack of shit.


anonymous 3/11/2017 5:25:54 PM

Yup... it's all your fault. 88


xpeoplearefakex 3/11/2017 7:17:41 PM

Does anyone else get the feeling that dude did this interview like he was cutting a WWE promo?


anonymous 3/11/2017 7:58:01 PM

anonymous 3/11/2017 8:11:18 PM

anonymous 3/11/2017 10:41:39 PM

Remember when POWDER from CODE ORANGE didn't CRY like a little CHILD when the record FOREVER had TERRIBLE sales compared to EXPECTATIONS?? Maybe a FRIENDLY game of THE MMA would make EDDIE less of a LITTLE BABY!!!!!!


anonymous 3/11/2017 11:49:18 PM

born to be nu metal?


anonymous 3/12/2017 4:50:04 AM

Hey Eddie, make like your band name and keep your silence. Turd!


anonymous 3/12/2017 5:18:12 AM

haters got hate this is album of the year take the dicks out of your ears and clean the c-m from your speakers retards


anonymous 3/12/2017 9:06:16 AM

If he thinks this all happened for a reason and blah blah maybe he just wanted to hang it up deep down inside. Nows his chance to sit at home eating cheetos for the rest of his life. Its like they set tgemselves up to fail so they could take tge easy way out. Besides fck this idiot one time back in like 06 he told me and my homie he did his vocals out his butt trying to be funny and impresa the ugle 16 year old scene chicks that were around


anonymous 3/12/2017 10:51:31 AM

Any metal fan who doesn't buy records anymore is riding the sled to the eventual doom of the metal scene. Buy records you little tweeny c*nts


anonymous 3/12/2017 10:52:28 AM

Any metal fan who doesn't buy records anymore is doing absolutely nothing to support the scene, you are hurting it. Stop watching fcking youtube and buy records you little c*nts


anonymous 3/12/2017 11:30:16 AM

Doubt the rest of the band feels that way lmao


anonymous 3/12/2017 12:07:58 PM

This album is the ONLY good thing ss has ever done. The hell is wrong with you people...


anonymous 3/12/2017 1:54:55 PM

I smoked weed and watched wrestle mania 4 in a van with Eddie one time, I'm cool


anonymous 3/12/2017 6:08:24 PM

I am truly astounded that Dan Kenny hasn't been found dead in his apartment yet.


anonymous 3/13/2017 4:00:36 AM

I can't wait for him to 'go harder' or whatever he was spouting off about and release the same album AGAIN and have even worse sales.


anonymous 3/13/2017 5:32:02 AM

little chris here - I back this record. shit goes hard, makes me wana return to my deathcore days. if you're not down with that I got 3 words for ya: SUCK MY RAWR

anonymous 3/13/2017 8:18:46 AM

God LG if I'm forced to read one more tiresome, incoherent diatribe from some illiterate band dweeb.... I honestly think webby posts shit like this just so the internet can roast this turd.


anonymous 3/13/2017 8:55:59 AM

Awaiting the 'we're going back to our roots' statement and subsequent release of the same old crap.


anonymous 3/13/2017 10:59:16 AM

It's one thing to be like, "We took a risk, we tried something new, oh well," but to be completely in denial to the point of saying 'We were born to make this record' just reeks of bullshit. Do what Four Year Strong did and come back with an album that your fans actually WANT to hear, not whatever your wet brain thinks is artistic, progressive, blah blah blah


anonymous 3/13/2017 1:07:20 PM

^^^ Everything that is wrong with narrow minded people who listen to music.


anonymous 3/13/2017 1:12:47 PM

The fundamental Paradox of the fan, you somehow think that since you liked the band and supported them, the band owes you something, they don't. They aren't a robot set of jukeboxes that cater to your demands. Bands make music, you may like it, bands change their music, you may not like it. fck off.


anonymous 3/13/2017 1:17:05 PM

yall some little d*ck niccas, need more big d*ck niccas on the board. Quit flexin before I beat you wit' my big n*gga c*ck


anonymous 3/13/2017 6:17:04 PM

Everything this band has put out to this point, pretty much sounds the fcking same. Props for taking a chance.


anonymous 3/13/2017 8:15:34 PM

You were born to fail and everything in your life has accumulated to failure apparently


anonymous 3/15/2017 3:58:38 AM

Just get better at singing, writing lyrics, and making interesting song structures. You can do it brah.
