* MagnumOpus: ''Effigy of the Forgotten'', both for the band and the sub-genres of brutal and technical death metal as a whole. Some occasionally give this distinction to ''Pierced from Within'', though.

* ToughActToFollow: All Music's review of 'Breeding the Spawn'' posits that the album would've suffered this relative to ''Effigy of the Forgotten'' even if there hadn't been glaring flaws in the production, due simply to the monumental impact ''Effigy'' had on the death metal community. Needless to say, there's plenty of reason to debate that assertion given how highly the songwriting on ''Spawn'' is now regarded.

* SophomoreSlump: Big-time. Some aspects of ''Breeding the Spawn'' have been VindicatedByHistory; particularly, the song-writing, which was attacked at the time as failing to bring any new element to their sound, is now considered to have been among the most technical ever produced by the band. However, to this day it's generally agreed that the production and engineering is a total failure that brings the album down several notches.

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Doug Bohn. While Smith and Culross are the Suffocation drummers who get the lion's share of the press, there are more than a few Suffo fans who prefer Bohn to both due to his uniquely groovy and deceptively complex style.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: One of the non-production criticisms against ''Breeding the Spawn''. This stance more or less disappeared after a few years.

* ItsShortSoItSucks: Apparently, this was one of the non-production criticisms against ''Breeding the Spawn'' at the time of release. Rather ridiculous, really - it was only one track and two minutes shorter than ''Effigy of the Forgotten''.
