In the course of his career, Suicidal icon Mike Muir has proven that he has a special relationship to the number 13 with his style-defining ice hockey jerseys. This year, this affinity is particularly evident. Want a taste? After 13 years, the crossover thrashers from Venice are releasing their 13th album in 2013 (of course only if you count various EPs and new recordings, but we don't want to be petty, it just reads better that way). Logically, there are a total of 13 songs on this album, the first since 1987 without guitarist Mike Clark, who had to pass because of a head injury. The very own, hyper-agile mix of metal, hardcore/punk and funk is still first class, even if Muir's voice doesn't have its former glory anymore, and you could have saved yourself a failure like the funk ballad "Life". But then you might not have come up with 13 songs. But the "Cyco Style", "Shake It Out", "Smash It" or "This Ainʼt A Celebration" are guaranteed to be a buzz kill at upcoming gigs. Conclusion: "Still cyco after 13 years!"
