The pioneers of death metal return! The new C.D from Cannibal Corpse "Torture" is due to be released on Tuesday, March 13th 2012 on Metal Blade Records. This will make the 12th studio album in the band's 24 year history. Recorded at Sonic Ranch Studios and produced by Hate Eternal guitarist Erik Rutan who's as good at producing as he is playing. Cannibal Corpse can be credited as one of the godfathers of death metal and are often quoted as influences by several, if not most modern death metal bands today. They might not have been the very first band on the scene but they hammered out the over all sound of what the genre would become and develop into. It's rare that a band who helped create an entire style of music can remain so relevant. They continue set the standard and the pace! Just take a listen to "Demented Aggression" off their latest offering "Torture"  and you'll quickly agree.

Truly a neck wreckin' masterpiece, an epic magnum opus of pure death metal! I've been listening to the new album for the past week or so. I know what you're thinking "Hey wait, it won't be out until next month". I was lucky to get a copy prior to release, another great perk of the job! Like previous Cannibal Corpse albums you have to listen to it over and over to even catch half of what's going on. I'm on my 5th trip through and still hear new elements every time I put it on. The new album pushes it even further, possibly to the limit. If there is such a thing, and if there is Cannibal Corpse will reach the summit first. Even with that and the evolution of the band it keeps that trademark Cannibal Corpse sound with added brutality!  Their currently overseas but will be back in the states for a full blown tour sometime Spring, Summer. I'm Hoping like hell we see them in Oklahoma City, Tulsa or the Metro-plex.
