Cannibal Corpse enlist Erik Rutan to fill in for Pat O’Brien on upcoming tours.

Cannibal Corpse have announced that Erik Rutan will fill in for guitarist Pat O’Brien as O’Brien tends to personal issues. Rutan will appear live with the band for the Decibel Magazine Tour and the upcoming US leg of Slayer’s final tour happening this May alongside Slayer, Lamb of God, and Amon Amarth. This won’t be the first time these death metal powerhouses have worked together; Rutan has produced four albums with Cannibal Corpse (Kill, Evisceration Plague, Torture, Red Before Black) and is uniquely equipped to fill the role – he is one of the death metal’s most acclaimed guitarists and is known for his time as part of Morbid Angel (who are co headlining the Decibel tour alongside Cannibal) throughout the 90s and early 2000s, as well as handling vocals/guitars and production duties for his current band Hate Eternal.

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), their latest album, Red Before Black, serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “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.”

Cannibal Corpse – Red Before Black

Death metal is alive and well in 2017 and if you don’t believe me, then just listen to the new Cannibal Corpse album, Red Before Black.  Even being the 14th studio album the death metal legends have put out, it still sounds as fresh and brutal as ever.  The first few seconds of the albums intro, “Only One Will Die”, will let you know exactly what you are about to experience.  Whether you’ve been a fan from day one, or are just discovering the band, there’s something for everyone on this record.  The plodding slow grind of the albums first single, “Code Of The Slasher”, is like taking a belt sander to the face of the undead.

While songs like “Firestorm Vengeance” and “Corpus Delicti” have thrashy guitars that really wouldn’t be out of place on a record like Slayer’s classic “Reign in Blood”.  George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher lays down great vocal patterns, while the guitar duo of death metal veterans Pat O’Brien and Rob Barrett just crush this album with riff after riff.  The drumming is nothing great nor terrible.  It drives the songs without being overly fancy, like any good death metal drummer should.  Paul Mazurkiewicz has set the bar for how a death metal drummer should play.  Alex Webster is an ageless wonder, he plays bass like few death metal bassists do, and this is a good thing.  Another one of the good things about this record is the song lengths.

  With the longest song, Code Of The Slashers at 4:46, this album doesn’t have much time for filler.  Straight to the point, get in, kill everything, and leave.  The way good death metal should be. So do yourself a favor, new and old fans alike.  Buy this album, play it loud and bang your head! – John Adams

Bay Area Death Metal Sect ACEPHALIX  Premieres “God Is Laughing”

Ahead of its release through 20 Buck Spin next month, ACEPHALIX – featuring members of Vastum, Necrot, Depressor, and more – offers a terrorizing indication of the horror their new Decreation LP delivers a premiere of the album’s “God Is Laughing.”
ACEPHALIX‘ Decreation was recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Vastum, Necrot, Ghoul), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Obituary, Black Breath), and completed with artwork by Adam Burke (Occultation, Loss, Gatecreeper, Artificial Brain). With each release, the ACEPHALIX horde grows more intense, vicious and bestial. Decreation is the culmination of five years of dormancy, letting loose upon the Earth the calamitous consequence of pent-up wrath.
 

20 Buck Spin will release Decreation on LP, CD, and digital formats September 22nd, a must-endure recording for devotees to the works of Vastum, Master, Necrot, Entombed, and Discharge. Find preorders for physical wares HERE and digital preorders HERE.
The rotten corpse of death metal horde ACEPHALIX, the Bay Area’s beast of barbarism, has been re-animated. Abnormally deceased since the band’s Southern Lord-released five years ago, Deathless Master, the crushing return of Decreation leaves no bone unbroken and no skull intact. Foul American death metal maggotry eating back to life coagulated remains of hardcore’s guts. Opener “Upon This Altar” rages with d-beat ferocity morphing into a slithering puzzle of pierced flesh. Primitive savagery pervades on “Suffer (Life In Fragments)” through to the cro-magnon battering of “Excremental Offerings.” All the while an obscure weirdness that characterized the idiosyncratic deformities of certain Cannibal Corpse, Nocturnus, and Death moments arises out of the ACEPHALIX tomb.
