Somewhere in an unsightly mancave beneath the stairs, The Gore-met is desperately trying to contain a raging boner…
America’s reigning kings of brutality, Cannibal Corpse, will unleash their twelfth studio offering this March via Metal Blade Records. Aptly titled Torture, the follow-up to 2009′s Evisceration Plague offers up twelve tracks of maniacally precise, soul-searing death metal. Torture was again produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan at his own Mana Recording Studio in St. Petersburg, Florida as well as Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, and features this maniacal cover art by longtime Cannibal Corpse artist, Vincent Locke.
Witness the gutting sounds of “Demented Aggression,” the band’s first single, as well as studio footage here.
Torture track listing:
01. Demented Aggression
02. Sarcophagic Frenzy
03. Scourge of Iron
04. Encased in Concrete
05. As Deep As the Knife Will Go
06. Intestinal Crank
07. Followed Home Then Killed
08. The Strangulation Chair
10. Crucifier Avenged
12. Torn Through
As a precursor to the release, CANNIBAL CORPSE will perform a special one-off show at the Culture Room in West Palm Beach, Florida, on January 22 then head to the seas to take part in this year’s edition of the 70,000 Tons Of Metal Cruise. The band will get a short break before a near month-long march through Europe on the Full Of Hate 2012 tour with labelmates Behemoth.
Torture will be released in North America on March 13, 2012.
