Torture, the latest studio album from American Death Metal icons, CANNIBAL CORPSE sold approximately 9,594 copies in the United States in its first week landing the band at #38 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, making it the highest debut in CANNIBAL CORPSE history! Torture landed at #7 on the Billboard Top Independent Album Chart, #4 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart and #32 Billboard Top Current Albums Chart.

In Canada, Torture ranked in at #29 on the Top 200 Current chart, #2 on the Hard Music chart

The record also slayed all in its path overseas, entertaining the German and Austrian Top 100 charts at #40, the German MSH charts (Media Markt and Saturn stores) at #33, Switzerland’s Top 100 chart at #72, Sweden’s Top 100 chart at #37, and Denmark’s Top 100 chart at #84.

Produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan, Torture continues to reap critical accolades from critics and fans around the globe and is yet another testament to CANNIBAL CORPSE’s permanent allegiance to shrewdly arranged, pile-driving Death Metal madness.

CANNIBAL CORPSE’s official U.S. headlining tour will commence this April. Sponsored by Metal Blade Records, Good Fight Entertainment and dB Drum Shoes, the U.S. Torture Tour 2012 will begin April 5 in Jacksonville, Florida. Support on the near month-long trek will be provided by Exhumed, Abysmal Dawn and Arkaik. In addition, the band will headline this year’s edition of the Summer Slaughter Festival with official dates to be announced soon.
