Cannibal Corpse Reveal Details For New Album, Release Video For First Single
On the 3rd of November, Cannibal Corpse will be gifting us their 14th full-length, Red Before Black, via Metal Blade Records. Giving us a taste of what to expect, the band have launched a video for the single 'Code of the Slashers', which was directed by Zev Deans (who has created videos for Behemoth's "Messe Noire", Ghost's "Square Hammer", Portal's "Curtain").
Zev Deans comments: "After crawling through abandoned buildings, crashing our van into a tree in the middle of a scene, witnessing a real stabbing and drenching ourselves in fake blood in a derelict park at 5am, we can safely say this was a proper introduction to the slasher genre for Panorama Programming. We brought a slab of fresh meat back from a rotting metropolis, and we're serving it to you raw. Come and get it."
Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black is looking to raise the stakes of death metal, giving us even more compelling music that is equally brutal and complex.
"Throughout our career we've tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. 'Red Before Black' continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It's definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we've done recently," asserts bassist Alex Webster. "We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums," adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. "And as Alex said, musically I think it's the most raw sound we've had - and at the same time I think it's our most focused, tightest and catchiest record."
