The death metal legends return and reign with force.
When you think of the iconic death metal covers that gave the genre the shock value it needed to propel itself into prominence, there's no way that Tomb of the Mutilated (1992) doesn't come up immediately. Vince Locke, who also illustrated the equally grotesque Eaten Back To Life (1990) and Butchered At Birth (1991), helped build the genre's legacy, a legacy that continues to flourish as CANNIBAL CORPSE returns once more with their now fifteenth studio album, Violence Unimagined. Arriving on April 16th via Metal Blade Records, Violence Unimagined finds the unit revisiting their partnership with Locke and challenging themselves once more, keeping their technical prowess at the elite level. The intensity is there, and with Erik Rutan joining the ranks once more as a full time member of the band, one expect a death metal outing of the highest caliber. Take the mid-tempo beast of lead single Inhumane Harvest for a spin and tell us otherwise.
Founder/bassist Alex Webster comments:
"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 most 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."
