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."

Meh, maybe this will be cool.

Honestly, the last great CC album in my not-so-humble opinion is Gore Obsessed.

Honestly anything could beat KILL, a couple of good songs on it but it just left that dissapointed feeling at the end.

Kill is quite possibly their best album. It was extremely technical and brutal. Way better than that sh**ty album gore obsessed

Apart from the first 3 albums, Kill blows every other release out of the water. I can't wait to finally see them live.

"Gore Obsessed" and "Kill" were CC's best albums, in my opinion. "Tomb of the Mutilated" was also killer.
