YMMV / Suicide Silence

  • Broken Base: The self-titled album. Depending on who you ask it either sounds like a bad Korn ripoff or is a bold new direction for the band.
  • Critical Dissonance: Their first two albums were well-received, however due to their Emo Teen image and rabid Fan Dumb, the band easily became Snark Bait for pretty much every serious Death Metal fan out there. By the time The Black Crown was released, however, they gained considerable rep from many DM fans.
  • Dead Artists Are Better: Mitch's wife herself was willing to admit he had a serious drinking problem and died in a reckless and stupid way. This trope, and the wider knowledge of what a generally nice person Mitch was have definitely protected his image though
  • Face of the Band: Mitch Lucker, before his death of course.
  • Fandom Rivalry: With Carnifex, maybe due to the two bands having very similar sounds.
  • Harsher in Hindsight/Tear Jerker: That Christmas where Lucker donated to a Variety Boys & Girls Club? That was his last one.
    • Also, the song, "You Only Live Once".
  • Heartwarming Moments: Above, however, is probably one of the sweetest things anyone could have done.
  • Internet Backdraft / Broken Base: Inevitable when a band decides to continue after loses a loved vocalist, but going on with new vocalist Eddie Hermida has NOT set well with a lot of fans. Hell, even continuing the band under the Suicide Silence name pissed off a lot of fans. The fact that Eddie has apparently decided to quit All Shall Perish has only fed the fire more.
  • Memetic Mutation: The Lucker Stomp. Not only is it used a lot among fans, other bands have lately been using it as a shoutout/tribute. Primarily Bring Me the Horizon singer Oli Sykes doing it at least once in every video for their next album.
    • The chorus of the single off their self-titled, Doris, brought us "Tee-hee!'"note 
  • Signature Song: "You Only Live Once" and "Unanswered".
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: How some felt about the "Them Bones" cover...And that's putting it very lightly without flamebait.
    • People are already saying this about new vocalist Eddie Hermida, never mind the self-titled album which is straight-up nu metal a la Korn.
  • The Scrappy: For a while, they were one, not even so much for their music, but rather their obnoxious fanbase and image, but The Black Crown gained them quite a bit of respect. Mitch's death helped matters, too.
  • Tear Jerker: Mitch Lucker Documentary. The whole thing is a tribute to Mitch, and showed the impact he had on others. Its really hard not to choke up during the last bit, especially when seeing Mitch's mom and Dan Kenny trying very hard not to cry on camera.
  • Too Cool to Live: Mitch Lucker. Everyone who has met him has said that Mitch is a great, warm, welcoming guy and a great father who made a bad life decision that ultimately led to a fatal mistake.
  • Vindicated by History: Much of the criticism that plagued the band's early career died down with the release of The Black Crown. Lucker's legacy probably helped, too.
