So This Is Suffering are a Los Angeles, California-based technical death metal/post-deathcore band. The outfit was founded by Zedadiah Martinez and Zechariah Gamez in 2006. The band later solidified its lineup with longtime friends Rudy Florez, Robert Brown, and James Williams. Having self-released three albums and relentlessly performed across the United States multiple times, they've earned a name as one of the heaviest and hardest-working currently active DIY bands. By melding emotionally-driven lyrics with a sound influenced by a broad spectrum of musical tastes, the members plan to leave their mark on extreme music. Source: Band's biography.
