American death metal legends Cannibal Corpse are to release a new album.
Titled A Skeletal Domain, the band’s thirteenth studio album will be released on the 15th of September via Metal Blade records.
This time around, the band opted to work with Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) in the producer’s chair at Audio Hammer Studios. But even though the producer and venue have changed, preparation for the album didn’t vary a great deal from previous releases.
Says bassist Alex Webster: “At the end of the day, we’re still making a death metal record, no matter where it’s being recorded. Consistency is often confused with repetition. We are established with what we do as a band, and we could relax and not push ourselves, but we try to push the envelope. That’s what makes this exciting.”
“Anyone who really listens to this album with an open mind will hear that it’s not same-old same-old,” he added.
Listen to new song “Sadistic Embodiment” below:
The full tracklisting for A Skeletal Domain is as follows:
“High Velocity Impact Spatter”
“Kill Or Become”
“A Skeletal Domain”
“Headlong Into Carnage”
“The Murderer’s Pact”
“Vector Of Cruelty”
“Asphyxiate To Resuscitate”
Meanwhile, this September the band will unleash their first-ever official authorised biography. Written by Joel McIver, author of Justice For All: The Truth About Metallica and biographies on Black Sabbath, Slayer, Slipknot, and Queens Of The Stone Age, Bible Of Butchery – Cannibal Corpse: The Official Biography will contain over 150 pages loaded with photos from the band’s collection.
