  • Suzaku Avenue - "Let's Pretend" CD Digi

Suzaku Avenue is an experimental metal/hardcore/punk band based in Dublin, Ireland, with members in

Berlin and London. In 2016 we released our critically acclaimed EP “Interiors”. In 2018 we are set to

release our follow-up album Let’s Pretend on Dark Soul Records.

Stephen Moody – lead vocals

Fionn Murray – guitar

Andrew Shovlin – bass

Jack Doyle – drums

Suzaku Avenue arose from a previous band named Best Before, formed when Moody, Murray and Doyle

were in secondary school. The name of the band is derived from the short story “Rashomon” by

Ryūnosuke Akutagawa. We have been compared to a variety of bands, including The Dillinger Escape

Plan, Deafheaven, Slint, Altar of Plagues, Botch, At the Drive-In, Fugazi, and Slayer.


“Sometimes Irish bands come out of the blue to just floor you like this, and it’s incredibly

refreshing when they do. Suzaku Avenue have daring musical style that at times sounds

like a completely free form, train of troubled consciousness confessional; except you

know they’ve worked very hard at crafting it all. Nothing here is straightforward, safe or

comfortable. It’s challenging and provocative, all over the place and yet unified by that

unnerving theme that runs through it all… It’s not noisecore: it’s noir-core.”

- Metal Ireland

“This curious work of art sounds very individual, heartfelt and adventurous... They

couldn’t have asked for a better debut.”

- Idioteq

“It's 25 minutes of music that will leave you feeling breathless, disoriented, and perhaps

a little bit violated.”

- Metal Trenches
