This, of course, was not to last, as Mullen and Hobbs reformed the band in 2003, welcoming back Smith, Barohn, and Marchais on their respective instruments, though Barohn was quickly fired, forcing Hobbs and Smith to perform bass duties for the album. Thankfully, they quickly found [[Music/DecrepitBirth Derek Boyer]] to fill the bass spot in 2004, where he has stayed ever since. This lineup would go on to release multiple albums and tour like madmen, ushering in a new era of success for the band. Things stayed stable until 2012, when Smith quit and Bill Robinson (also of Decrepit Birth fame) had to briefly take Mullen's place on the European tour, with Culross once again taking drum duties. As of February 2013, they have officially released a new album, titled ''Pinnacle of Bedlam'', in addition to announcing that Mullen would have to sit out tour dates here and there due to his need to put his job first ([[FanDumb which, of course, was misconstrued as Mullen leaving the band, creating an uproar that annoyed the band to no end]]); of course, Mullen stayed, and [[Music/DyingFetus John Gallagher]] was chosen as his fill-in for the live dates that he could not make. By the looks of things, they still have no intention of stopping any time soon. As of 2014, Culross has left yet again, with Kevin Talley officially taking over on a full-time basis. Live vocal fill-ins are currently being handled by [[Music/{{Disgorge}} Ricky Myers]]. A new album is slated for 2016, and Myers will apparently also contribute some vocals in addition to Mullen's own. At some point in 2016, Guy Marchais quietly left; Charlie Errigo (The Merciless Concept) is his replacement. Talley also left at some point between May and July of 2016 and was replaced by Eric Morotti (Killitorous) on a full-time basis.

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Subverted with Mike Smith and Dave Culross; despite their powerful, hard-hitting styles, they both played in a calm, fluid manner. Played straight with Kevin Talley, who is known for being quite animated and theatrical behind the kit.

* JerkAss: Mike Smith cultivated quite the reputation for having a huge ego, [[HairTriggerTemper anger issues]], and a generally abrasive personality, and he left on incredibly poor terms after he lit Terrance Hobbs' Vader cabs on fire (which were apparently being kept at his house) after a dispute over touring. He is apparently still friends with Frank Mullen, but Terrance (whose gear was destroyed by Smith) is no longer on speaking terms with him.
* LargeHam: Frank is well-known for his live antics, particularly his standup routines and the "blast chop".
* LeadBassist: All of their bassists have been Type As, but Boyer has also become a borderline Type C thanks to his live antics. The liner notes of ''Pinnacle of Bedlam'' revealed he also wrote the majority of the lyrics for that album.

* MetalScream: Type 2 for both Frank and Ricky; while Frank may not have ''quite'' been the UrExample of true gutturals ([[Music/CannibalCorpse Chris Barnes]] and [[Music/{{Deicide}} Glen Benton]] both beat him to the punch), he was most certainly a TropeCodifier by way of how he made them clearer and more intelligible, cutting out both the gurgliness of Barnes' vocals and the bellowing quality of Benton's. Ricky, meanwhile, has somewhat lower and more gurgly vocals that are at least somewhat reminiscent of the various vocalists who have been through Disgorge ([=AJ=] Magana probably being the closest to his style), but are still decidedly intelligible.

On a personal level, Derek and Ricky are longtime buddies and the former pushed for the latter to get the job, while the same is also true for Charlie and Kevin Muller, who is bandmates with the former in The Merciless Concept and also a live tech for Suffocation.

Suffocation is an American technical death metal band, and quite possibly the UrExample of the technical death genre as a whole. Easily identifiable by their twisted progressions, exceptionally fast tremolo runs, dissonant yet eerily melodic leadwork, and their trademark "Suffo blasts," Suffocation stands as one of the most successful and influential death metal groups in the history of the genre. Let's put it this way: if you ask someone in a modern death metal band about their influences, Suffocation will almost assuredly be at the top of their list.

* SpecialGuest: [[Music/DyingFetus John Gallagher]] got the chance to fill in for Frank on the live dates that he couldn't make on the spring 2013 tour, while Kevin Talley briefly filled in for Culross shortly before the band's original dissolution and later returned to fill in and eventually take over for him after he left. Finally, [[Music/{{Disgorge}} Ricky Myers]] started out as this before he became a full-time live member (if you're confused, Frank still does short tours and most one-offs, while Ricky does the long tours and overseas fests). This ''may'' also wind up happening with Kevin Muller if there ever comes a time where neither Frank nor Ricky can make a show, but nothing has been explicitly confirmed or denied.

* VocalEvolution: Frank underwent two phases of this.
** The first, during the band's original run, saw him playing with his vocal style until settling on the more enunciated approach that he's used since ''Pierced From Within''.
** The second phase has involved his growls gradually becoming throatier and higher pitched since ''Pierced'', a pattern typical of DeathMetal vocalists.
