Freedumb is a studio album by American crossover band Suicidal Tendencies.[5][6] It was released in 1999 on Suicidal Records.[7]

The tracks are rawer than the funk-influenced thrash metal direction they were taking before the hiatus. The album's cover art is a reference to the photo Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima taken during World War II.

Reception[edit]

CMJ New Music Report wrote that the songs "display thousand-mile-an-hour, classic hardcore guitar assaults."[8] In 2005, Freedumb was ranked number 489 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time.[9]
