Hailing from Malmö, Sweden and formed in 2001 : SUMA has been spreading the plague of their sonic weight, noise-ridden hallucinatory doom metal on the world for the past decade and a half. Through these years they've lured hordes of humans into the lair with their devastatingly heavy, one way trip into the vortex live performances and crushing delivery on their recorded matters.
With a strong DIY mind, SUMA has been releasing most of it's music through their own label and hitting the roads across Europe over the years through their own booking and the help of kindred spirits across the plains. In 2010 SUMA was invited by Tom G. Warrior to take part in his "Only Death Is Real" curated day at ROADBURN and saw their first appearance on U.S. soil - an east-coast tour with Unearthly Trance. As well as distribution and marketing help for ASHES through now defunct swedish death/black metal label REGAIN RECORDS.
After the changes to the entity that is SUMA in the winter of 2011/12 there was no hesitation in figuring out how to move forward. Now regenerated to enable unexplored structures of their sphere... there is a vast darkness on the horizon.
In 2016 they'll record their fourth album - THE ORDER OF THINGS - with legendary engine-ear BILLY ANDERSON (Pallbearer, Black Cobra, Agalloch, Tragedy) once again at the helm of the recording. This is the imminent evolution from the past's behemoths of albums, LET THE CHURCHES BURN and ASHES.

three piece - heavy experimental band , music consist of a mixture of spacerock and psychedelic vibes with heavy distorted riffs. The name of the band comes from Plato's Allegory of the Cave . In short words, the music is supposed to get people out of their comfort zone and make them question their strongest beliefs regarding contemporary music and everything it stands for.
