CANNIBAL CORPSE – To Kick Off US Headlining Tour With Power Trip And Gatecreeper Next Week

Cannibal Corpse - Power Trip - tour flyer - November 2017 - #4MO333ILMFSO33

CANNIBAL CORPSE will kick off their US headlining tour in support of their upcoming Red Before Black full-length next week. The tour will commence on November 3rd and run through December 8th with support provided by Power Trip and Gatecreeper. See all confirmed dates below.

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, the band’s fourteenth album, 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,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently.”

“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 rawest sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Red Before Black will see release on November 3rd via Metal Blade Records. Preorder bundles are currently available at metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse where you can also preview the title track as well as the band’s video for “Code Of The Slashers.”

DESTRUCTION “Thrash Anthems II” – Releases On November 11th, via Nuclear Blast Records!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Destruction facebook:

In 2007, DESTRUCTION proved how successful re-recording some of their timeless classics and re-imagining history could be. The follow-up to 2007’s Thrash Anthems is ready to rock the Metal world and shows how fans can be part of both a band’s history and future. For Thrash Anthems II, DESTRUCTION called upon on their loyal fans through PledgeMusic to help them create the record and contribute to the band’s epic history.

Mastermind Schmier states:
“As it is a part of our past to relaunch classic songs from our history with a fresh face and we had many demands on a Thrash Anthems continuation, we decided to do a second part of this re-animation of classic 80s DESTRUCTION material. For us it was important to choose the tracks with the fans and first when NB did not wanna do the album, we decided to do a pledge campaign to raise the funds for the production, together with the die hards.

To make a long story short, we know not everybody will like these new versions of those thrash evergreens (just listen to the originals then) but it was an important task for us to keep them alive for a whole new generation of metalheads that love those fresh and brutal new recordings. We are very happy now, that our label is finally releasing this collection of thrash classics. The vibe on this record is so vicious, uncommercial and has this 80s feeling with an even more aggressive edge and THAT is was made our THRASH so special, in the good old days and now!”
