YMMV: Suicide Silence

  • 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.
  • 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: That christmas where Lucker donated to a Variety Boys & Girls Club? That was his last one.
    • Also, the song, "You Only Live Once".
  • 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.
  • Magnum Opus: The Black Crown
  • Signature Song: You Only Live Once, and No Pity for a Coward before that.
  • 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.
  • 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 one 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.
