Cannibal Corpse

Band Photo: Cannibal Corpse (?)

Formed: 1988
From: Buffalo, NY, United States
Last Known Status: Active

Background

BANNED in Australia, New Zealand & Korea. BANNED from performing any material off their first three albums in Germany, where the sale of "Butchered At Birth" is outlawed completely!

It has been 16 years since a small band out of Buffalo, New York released their gorified Metal Blade Records debut "Eaten Back to Life," and in their decade+ existence, Cannibal Corpse have accomplished much more than getting their music and concerts banned. Cannibal Corpse have been repeatedly targeted by the morality police (Gore, PMRC, Lieberman, Dole), appeared in a blockbuster Hollywood feature film (Ace Venture: Pet Detective), debuted as the only Death Metal band to rank on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, graced the covers of virtually every Metal magazine in the world, toured the globe routinely and sold millions of records. All of this with zero commercial radio airplay and no exposure from MTV, save the periodic obligatory controversial news segment. On February 26th, 2002, "Gore Obsessed," the band's eighth full-length studio album, will redefine the Death Metal genre and reign as Cannibal Corpse's most accomplished and scrutinized recording to date. While not infringing on their trademark sound, Cannibal Corpse and multi-platinum first time Corpse producer Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Nevermore, Skrew, Macabre and many more) focused on technically powerful guitars and unmatched bass & drum syncopation that will leave the current crop of corporate makeup metallers slack jawed. "Pit Of Zombies" rips with alternating tempos and time changes that never leaves the listener behind, but drags them screaming into the pit. "Mutilation Of The Cadaver" is another prime chunk of meat that sees vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher easily spewing forth his finest vocal fury on record (including an unnerving fourteen second scream).

Eight albums in and Cannibal Corpse have never defied their core fan base, continually strengthening their place as the most enduring, relevant and uncompromising Death Metal band ever. With "Gore Obsessed" introducing future classics "Sanded Faceless", "Hung And Bled", "When Death Replaces Life" and "Dormant Bodies Bursting", Cannibal Corpse have buried any and all possibility of being dethroned as the reigning purveyors of aural gore and sonic splatter. Sure to once again peek the interest of those who feel it their responsibility to protect the moral fiber of America's youth culture, Cannibal Corpse again turned to long time friend and artist Vincent Lock to create a visual representation of "Gore Obsessed" that could match the band's musical depiction. Having set a high standard with album covers for "Butchered at Birth" and "Tomb of the Mutilated," Locke, as expected, delivered the gore, and more. The CD cover for "Gore Obsessed" will be masked for retail outlets as no "censored" cover will be available domestically.

Cannibal Corpse Reveals New Album Title

Death metal legends Cannibal Corpse has announced that their new studio album will be entitled, "Evisceration Plague" and that it will be released on February 3rd.

Bassist Alex Webster states: "In Cannibal Corpse, our goal has always been to try and make each new album we record our heaviest. That goal was a bit morechallenging this time since we were extremely satisfied with our last album, "Kill," but we knew that by working with producer Erik Rutan at Mana Recording Studios again, we would be able to start at the same level of heaviness and take it even further. Now that we can hear the finished product, I would say we've been able to achieve this goal and I think our fans will agree. "Evisceration Plague" has the best guitar sound we've ever recorded and the entire band has never played with more precision and power. We can't wait until you all get a chance to hear the album in early 2009, because we think you'll be as happy with it as we are."

The tracklisting for "Evisceration Plague" is as follows:

1. Priests Of Sodom
2. Scalding Hail
3. To Decompose
4. A Cauldron Of Hate
5. Beheading And Burning
6. Evidence In The Furnace
7. Carnivorous Swarm
8. Evisceration Plague
9. Shatter Their Bones
10. Carrion Sculpted Entity
11. Unnatural
12. Skewered From Ear To Eye

Cannibal Corpse Bassist Posts New Studio Update

Cannibal Corpse Bassist Alex Webster has posted the following studip update:

"Hello everyone, Alex from Cannibal Corpse here checking in again from Mana Studios in St. Petersburg Florida. The last time you heard from us Paul had just finished the drum tracking, and we've made a lot of progress since then. Here's a brief rundown:
The rhythm guitar recording was the next part of the session. We spent a lot of time on it, both on attaining a crushing sound, and also on achieving airtight performances. The tracking was a lot of hard work for Pat and Rob, but the end result was well worth the effort. They did an amazing job and I think you'll all be impressed with the results.
Next up was the bass tracking, and again we worked hard to get a great sound and great performances. Producer Erik Rutan oversaw the tracking and made sure he got the best performance I was capable of, just as he did with Rob and Pat on the rhythm guitar. I can say for sure that the bass and rhythm guitar have never been tighter on any Cannibal Corpse album.

"Currently, George is working on tracking the vocals, and he is a little over halfway done. He's had a few parts to sing that were unbelievably fast, but so far he's been more than up to the task. His voice is sounding brutal and holding up well, so we should be done tracking the vocals in the next few days. Pat has already started working on guitar solos as well, but the majority of the solos will be recorded after the vocals are complete.

"So, that's about it for now. We are all extremely excited with how this album is shaping up. We wanted to make an ultra heavy and precise album, and so far that's the way it's been going. Next up is the mix, and we're confident Erik will make this the heaviest sounding Cannibal Corpse album yet. Check back for a final update when the mix is complete."

Cannibal Corpse Bassist Checks In From The Studio

Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster has posted the following studio report:

"Alex from CANNIBAL here checking in from Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida. Paul (Mazurkiewicz) has finished all the drum tracks for our new album, and we think he did an amazing job. Things really went smoothly with the drum tracking this time, and that gave us a little extra time for Paul to get creative with some of the drum parts. Everything is still fast and brutal as you'd expect, but there are a few different rhythmic ideas happening that we think our fans will appreciate. The next step for us will be to start working on a guitar sound, and then begin guitar tracking. The sound of the rhythm guitar is one of the most important things on a metal album, so we will take our time and make sure that we get the heaviest sound possible. The recording of the rhythm guitars will be something we'll take our time with as well. Rob (Barrett, guitar), Pat (O'Brien, guitar) and producer Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, ex-MORBID ANGEL) are truly perfectionists when it comes to guitar tracking, they'll settle for nothing less than a flawless performance. That kind of dedication can make for a challenging recording session, but when the end result is a crushingly heavy album it's more than worth the time and effort."

Eulogy Guitarist Posts Update

Eulogy guitarist Jarrett Pritchard has posted this update:

"Rob (Barrett - guitarist; also CANNIBAL CORPSE) and I sat down yesterday and did all of his trax for the demo...Mike (Pogionne - bass) came down last week and did bass. It all went incredibly well. So soon we will be doing vox. Jason (Avery - vocals) has recovered relatively well from the accident. The doctors have said he is ok to scream....when I was learning of the rest he needed, it became semi-funny remembering Nick Holmes from PARADISE LOST talking in an interview about popping his eye out from screaming. In our case this was a real possibility. But he has been cleared for strenuous activity. Any of you who have ever seen him live knows that he is relatively strenuous.

"Saw DIMMU and BEHEMOTH and lots of friends at Jannus Landing (in Tampa) last week. Good Show. One of the better I have seen in a long while. In about a month (July 8th), Cannibal Corpse is releasing a documentary DVD. It spans their entire career and should be pretty great. A whole bunch of us were included in it. Both Jason and I (Jarrett) were interviewed and as far as I know included in it. So needless to say we are excited about seeing our grills on camera in a retrospective of some important death metal history.

"As this demo thing draws to a close, my main concern next is festivals. If your doing one...get in touch."

Cannibal Corpse Announces DVD Release Date

An official press release for the renowned band had the following to say:

Legendary death metal band Cannibal Corpse has been busy working on the follow-up to 2006's victorious release Kill, which saw the band hit the Billboard Top 200 chart at #170 with 6,049 units scanned, #6 on Billboard's Heatseaker chart, #16 on Billboard's Top Independent Albums chart, #21 on Billboard's Top Hard Rock Albums chart, a coveted spot touring on 2006's Sounds of the Underground, headlining the extremely successful Metal Blade Records 25th Anniversary Tour, and multiple tours overseas and dates in Canada and South America.

The new album isn't expected until the fall or winter, so until then fans will be able to get their Cannibal fix with the bands first-ever career retrospective 3-disc DVD, Centuries of Torment The First 20 Years, due out July 2008 via Metal Blade Records.

Cannibal Corpse Want To Enter Studio In September

CANNIBAL CORPSE bassist Alex Webster has issued the following update:

"My wife and I will be attending the NAMM show in Anaheim next week, so if any of you are going to the show, maybe we'll see you there. I'm not doing any signings or presentations or anything like that, but I will be there as a guest of Spector basses. I'll also be dropping by the Modulus, DR Strings, and Ampeg booths, so you might see me somewhere around there too.

"Also, in case you didn't see the announcement on HATE ETERNAL's site last month, I won't be playing bass on their upcoming tours. Although it would have been a lot of fun, we all knew from the beginning that I'd probably just do the studio session, and that's the way things turned out. It just seemed like there would be some serious schedule conflicts, so they decided to look for a bassist who could be fully dedicated to touring with them this year. Those guys are beginning a tour next week, so be sure to catch them if they come through your area. Also, their new album, 'Fury and Flames', will be released on February 20th, so check it out. It's a truly savage album, and I'm proud they let me be a part of it.

"In CANNIBAL news, we have started writing, and things are coming along well. We are hoping to enter the studio in September of this year, so that would mean our next album will be released sometime in 2009.

"As for BLOTTED SCIENCE [the instrumental extreme metal triumvirate featuring guitarist Ron Jarzombek (WATCHTOWER, SPASTIC INK, MARTY FRIEDMAN), Webster, and drummer Charlie Zeleny (BEHOLD...THE ARCTOPUS, JORDAN RUDESS)], we have been enjoying a very positive response to the release of our debut album, 'The Machinations of Dementia', and I'd like to say thank you to everybody out there who has bought the album or supported us in any way. A lot of people have been asking when and if we'll play live, and I still don't know the answer to that. If we ever did plan something it would be posted on BLOTTED's MySpace page, so check there for updates."

When asked about the wisdom of releasing a single directly to the public instead of exclusively building supply and demand through such traditional media outlets, ADRIFT drummer Kevin Astl stated, "We just want to get the music out there to the people, our friends and fans. We're not thumbing our nose at radio and would never do so, but we feel that our music should have as much reach as possible. If that includes radio support, then we welcome it, but in conjunction with our plans to push the record. We just feel that radio shouldn't be the ONLY place you can hear ADRIFT's music. 'Pushed Aside' is one of those songs that people tell us is strong, melodically heavy and memorable. We've had such a positive response to the record that we want the word to spread, and we want the music to keep flowing — check out ADRIFT and let us know what you think of the tunes."

"Absolution" was recorded by David Burrill at The Sample Factory in Youngsville, NC, was mixed by Mark Lewis at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, FL, and was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New Windsor, NY.
