SUCCUMB was formed in 2014 by a group of friends with diverse musical backgrounds, who share a common love for Canadian death metal, war metal, and 1990’s Napalm Death. That same year they released a demo under the name Cloak and played a handful of local shows, attracting the attention of The Flenser. The following year they were joined by Harry Cantwell (Bosse-de-Nage, ex-Slough Feg) on drums and got to work writing their self-titled debut album. SUCCUMB was recorded by bay area luminary Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Bosse-de-Nage, Botanist, Oathbreaker, etc.).
Musrasrik cites authors and poets like Yeats, Jean Genet and Emile Zola as her primary lyrical influences. Throughout SUCCUMB she tackles themes such as human experimentation, autoerotic asphyxiation, BDSM, prostitution, opium dens and dystopias with a literary flair."
