CANNIBAL CORPSE new album + video + tour dates!

- in News / Stream

On November 3rd, CANNIBAL CORPSE will release their 14th full-length, ‘Red Before Black’, via Metal Blade Records. For a first preview of ‘Red Before Black’, the band has launched a video for the single, ‘Code of the Slashers’. Directed by Zev Deans ( – who created videos for Behemoth’s “Messe Noire”, Ghost’s “Square Hammer”, Portal’s “Curtain”), ‘Code of the Slashers’ can be viewed at:

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.”

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), 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.”
