Biography

Belgium (1986 – present)

Belgium based Johan Van Roy, Suicide Commando’s only member, began experimenting with electronic music in 1986. Three years later he released his first tape under the moniker Suicide Commando, and made an appearance on the vinyl compilation, Electronic. As Van Roy continued self-releasing tapes, he landed more compilation appearances on Rotation II and Induktion, Varianz und Deren Folgen, both released by Kugelblitz records.

1994 finally saw Suicide Commando’s first CD, Critical Stage, released on the German label Off-Beat. Shortly after, in 1995, Suicide Commando released Stored Images, which contains to date one of van Roy’s most popular songs, See You in Hell.

1996 was the ten-year anniversary of Suicide Commando, and with it came the release of Contamination, as well as the limited boxed version, which contained a bonus 3” compact disc featuring previously unreleased material. Contamination was released a year later in North America by the now defunct Electronic Death Trip records.

In 1998, Suicide Commando released the album Construct-Destruct and its sister release, Reconstruction including new clubhits like Desire and Better Off Dead, the former of which was picked up by Possessive Blindfold Records for distribution in North America with bonus tracks.

    Hocico > SC, but it's still good. I think that Johan's aesthetic direction has taken away from the music with shit like Die Motherfucker Die music video. Just my opinion, but I hate that cheese.

    The evil and mechanical sounding SC is probably my favourite. The more produced stuff that has come since "Bind, Torture, Kill" is alright, but I really don't like it nearly as much.

    If you like slow burning evil shit like Murder or Burn baby burn try Acylum. He emulates that style perfectly

    Ahhh Sucide Commando! One of the best and probably one of the oldest scene bands! Hundreds of bands who try to cover the sound but only a few who can keep up with Johan. Amazing tracks, every album is good or even brilliant. Old and new sound is great! Latest album has a very interesting sound and Unterwelt is probably one of his best tracks!

    "SC is blackened post-ambientcore which draws heavily on Sun Ra". You're from /mu/, right?

    lies, SC is blackened post-ambientcore which draws heavily on Sun Ra and Golgothian blues. Also bipolar is synonymous with Brazilian. I still listen to this guy but mainly because I made a deal with the devil with Johann present that I would receive his delicious Belgian waffles after each 100th play
