Alex Webster and Cannibal Corpse Announce New Album, “Chaos Horrific”
The unstoppable death metal machine that is Cannibal Corpse has announced its sixteenth album, Chaos Horrific, which will be released on September 22nd via Metal Blade Records. They’ve also unveiled a corresponding U.S. tour that will launch the same day.
The band, celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, once again worked with producer Erik Rutan, who joined the band as a full-time guitarist. It will be his sixth time producing the band and the second to feature his playing.
Bass hero Alex Webster says the music is a continuation from their previous album, Violence Unimagined, and was written shortly after the sessions for that record.
“To me, this album feels sort of like a continuation of Violence Unimagined,” he says. Though they’re known for their technical prowess, it’s not the first thing they go for when writing new music. “I don’t think there was any conscious effort to make things more technical,” Webster adds, “so if it wound up that way, it would just be a natural result of us trying to write the heaviest songs we could.”
Cannibal Corpse is giving fans a preview of the album with its first single, “Blood Blind.” Check out the video:
Chaos Horrific will be released on September 22nd, the same they begin their tour in Nashville, Tennessee. See below for the full dates.
