Suffocation - Effigy of the Forgotten

Effigy of the Forgotten is the second full-length album by New York-based death metal band Suffocation, released in 1991. The cover artwork was created by Dan Seagrave. Several of the tracks had appeared on earlier releases: "Reincremation" and "Involuntary Slaughter" were re-recorded from the Reincremation demo, while "Infecting the Crypts", "Mass Obliteration", and "Jesus Wept" appeared originally on the Human Waste.

The album became very influential in the death metal and grindcore genres.

Both this album and Pierced from Within have been re-released by Roadrunner Records as part of the Two from the Vault series.

The album was dedicated to the memory of Atheist bassist Roger Patterson, who had perished in a car crash earlier in 1991.
