By molding emotions, driven lyrics and with the sounds influenced by a broad spectrum of musical tastes, California's So This Is Suffering plan to leave their mark in extreme music.Signed to Unique Leader Records, STIS continues to build a fan base around the world with their dynamic and heavy music. Their style is a wide range of death metal, metalcore, melodic/experimental to hardcore and mathcore.
