Frank Mullen

Frank Mullen

Real/full name:
Frank Mullen
45 (born Jan 2nd, 1970)
Place of origin:
United States (Long Island, New York)


Mullen's growls are considered to be the blueprint for modern death metal vocals. He is considered as one of the first in death metal to achieve a lower-pitched vocal style (often referred to as "death growls").

Mullen is also known for his frenetic "hand chops" at Suffocation concerts; and for his funny and sometimes bizarre stage banter.

Frank Mullen has a daughter named Rayna Mullen.


Also provided a guest vocal spot in the Suicide Silence song "Smashed".
