Breeding the Spawn
Pierced from Within

Breeding the Spawn is the second studio album by the American death metal band Suffocation. Though it still employs the characteristics and elements associated with Suffocation's song writing, the production on the album is much thinner than on other albums, due to financial problems regarding their label Roadrunner Records. However it shows a more complex and technical side of the band. Most likely to make up for the relatively poor production on the album, tracks from Breeding the Spawn were re-recorded for inclusion on four Suffocation albums to date: "Breeding the Spawn" on Pierced from Within; "Prelude to Repulsion" and "Anomalistic Offerings" on Suffocation (the latter found on the Japanese version of the album); "Marital Decimation" on Blood Oath; "Beginning of Sorrow" on Pinnacle of Bedlam.
