The American death metal icons in Cannibal Corpse are pleased to announce the release of their thirteenth full-length, "A Skeletal Domain."

With lucky number 13 the band has switched gears, opting to work with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, after having tracked the previous three outings (Kill, Evisceration Plague, Torture) with Erik Rutan.

Boasting twelve-ominous tracks in forty-four spine-fraying minutes, the result is a massive, belligerent, and deliberate aural attack that finds the band at their peak of its notoriously hyper kinetic, meticulously executed brutality.

"At the end of the day, we're still making a death metal record, no matter where it's being recorded," relays bassist Alex Webster. Mark Lewis offered a slightly different, modern recording approach, but the band stressed that it could not be more pleased with previous albums with Rutan, and the door is most definitely open to work with him again in the future. Changing producers is something the band has historically done after every few albums, if only to not get too comfortable.

"Consistency is often confused with repetition. We are established with what we do as a band, and we could relax and not push ourselves, but we try to push the envelope. That's what makes this exciting," adds Webster. "Anyone who really listens to this album with an open mind will hear that it's not same-old same-old."

Mark Lewis would concur with Webster's analysis and even goes a step further by claiming that "there are moments on this record that have never happened in musical history."

The "A Skeletal Domain" album will be released in North America on September 16th, 2014 via Metal Blade records. Pre-orders are available here, and you can hear the first track to be released from the album below. The full track listing is:
