Cannibal Corpse are a brutal fine wine, made on battlefields long conquered, seeped in the blood of fucked up eardrums the world over. They are simply one of the greatest extreme bands to come from this big blue bastard we call earth and I’ll be fucked if they didn’t just deliver an absolute monstrous blood-curdling bastard in the way of ‘Inhumane Harvest‘ from forthcoming fifteenth studio album Violence Unimagined (out April 16 via Metal Blade Records), and like any fine wine, these heavy metal icons are getting even better with the passing of time.
On the new release, bassist and founding member Alex Webster says:
“It really follows the path we’ve been going down for a few years now… I think we approach the writing in a similar way almost every time: each of us try to write the heaviest, most memorable songs we can. We want each song to have its own identifiable character. Showing my age, I like to say you can drop the needle on any point of one of our albums and quickly tell which song you’re listening to”
I’ve been flogging CC of late and have been after new music from them for some time now and despite this being just the one song, it does not disappoint. All you need to know is they haven’t lost anything in the way of brutality and that you need to listen to it now. But don’t play it whilst driving, for Christ’s sake. You’ll end up speeding up a one-way road, causing a horrific disaster and become the topic of Cannibal Corpse’s next album… Probably!
Additionally, this song just makes you want to see them live even more so than ever before. America had better get its arse into gear, knock this Covid bullshit on its head and send Cannibal Corpse the fuck over here.
If you’re a vinyl collector, well, there’s a fuckload you’re gonna wanna chase down! All the details can be found at metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse
