Cannibal Corpse Reveals "Torture" Album Details

America's reigning kings of brutality, Cannibal Corpse, will unleash their twelfth studio offering this March via Metal Blade Records. Aptly titled "Torture," the follow-up to 2009's "Evisceration Plague" offers up 12 tracks of "maniacally precise, soul-searing death metal."

"Torture" was again produced by Hate Eternal's Erik Rutan at his own Mana Recording Studio in St. Petersburg, Florida as well as Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, and features the maniacal cover art by longtime Cannibal Corpse artist, Vincent Locke, viewable here.

While "Torture" marks the latest progression in the band's sound, it also witnesses a return to what drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz accurately terms "the frenzied attack of Butchered At Birth (1991) or Tomb Of The Mutilated (1992)," infusing the band's advanced musicianship with the raw savagery that haunted earlier releases, and in the process conceiving the definitive Cannibal Corpse record.

Adds bassist Alex Webster on the outcome of the record: "We're extremely happy with how Torture turned out. Erik Rutan did an amazing job with the production, and the songwriting and performances may be our strongest yet. We can't wait until our fans get to hear the whole thing!"

Witness the gutting sounds of "Demented Aggression" the album's first single, at this location.

The track listing is as follows:

01. Demented Aggression
02. Sarcophagic Frenzy
03. Scourge of Iron
04. Encased in Concrete
05. As Deep As the Knife Will Go
06. Intestinal Crank
07. Followed Home Then Killed
08. The Strangulation Chair
09. Caged…Contorted
10. Crucifier Avenged
11. Rabid
12. Torn Through

Nice new track! Sounds like "Kill", which is probably the best thing I can say. I was sure they would go really groovy with this one after the success of "Evisceration Plague" but glad they're eternally sticking to their guns.

Yea Evisceration Plague really got me into this band.
I didn't really like the new single. I don't like how fast Corpsegrinder tries to sing. Just not feeling it. I didn't like certain fast verses on Plague either. But I just watched the first "making of" video and when the tracking for "As Deep As The Knife Will Go" came up sh!t got real dude. That track sounds off the hook. I think this is gonna be a good album. Corpse!

their albums do not sound the same. use yur ears. besides gore obsessed, the sound has been gradually better considering the technicality of their style and timing. Bloodthirst is hard to beat for me, except the mix was very mid-range. This sounds like the f***in best yet. And I own every single release.

Anyone know a place to pre-order this in Europe? The shop linked from their web page said "German censored version" and I won't spend money on that.

Hardcore Cannibal corpse fan, but i wish the song titles of this album were more brutal...I have a feeling this album is going to be something like a more refined KILL , and hope it really is. Evisceration plague just dint sound as brutal as their earlier work.
