* Interiors (2016)

"Sometimes Irish bands come out of the blue to just floor you like this, and it’s incredibly refreshing when they do. Suzaku Avenue have daring musical style that at times sounds like a completely free form, train of troubled consciousness confessional; except you know they’ve worked very hard at crafting it all. Nothing here is straightforward, safe or comfortable. It’s challenging and provocative, all over the place and yet unified by that unnerving theme that runs through it all...
It's not noisecore: it's noir-core." - Metal Ireland

"This is not your typical, full speed ahead hardcore. There is an oddball quality to the music, mixing aspects of 90's post-hardcore with more avantgarde songwriting choices. It's 25 minutes of music that will leave you feeling breathless, disoriented, and perhaps a little bit violated. Interior's take on composition is the equivalent of being a 2 year old violently smashing Duplo blocks against each other until they finally snap into a good way." - Metal Trenches

"Their epic, multi-part songs are a blend of '90s indie rock, Celtic rock, pop and some good ol' metallic heaviness, making a concoction all the band’s own... switching between kicking aggression, sweet melodicism and brooding apocalypticism almost from bar to bar." - Dublin Buzz

"They’re not your typical band at all. SUZAKU AVENUE definitely have their own identity and know how and what they want to sound like. Their take on Hardcore/Post Metal is quite unusual." - Irish Metal Archive
