Cannibal Corpse Refuses to Die

on February 29, 2012 | Leave a comment

[After an advance tasting of Cannibal Corpse's new album, Rue Morgue's meal of a man, The Gore-met, got on the horn with guitarist Pat O'Brien to discuss the finer points of Torture.]

With their twelfth studio album about to drop (out March 13 from Metal Blade Records), it’s time to put the musical legacy of Cannibal Corpse into proper perspective. Next year marks the band’s 25th anniversary – although their first album, Eaten Back to Life, was released in 1990, they first came together in 1988.

Cannibal Corpse To Release Twelfth Studio Album

on January 16, 2012 | Leave a comment

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 the maniacal cover art by longtime Cannibal Corpse artist, Vincent Locke (click past the jump for a better look).

Macabre Go Deep Into Serial Killer History

on April 1, 2011 | 1 Comment

Macabre are more than death metal legends. They’re one of the most comprehensive sources of serial killer information that you’re likely to find. Formed more than 25 years ago with a line-up that has never changed, Macabre’s music has been dubbed “murder metal” for a reason, with a discography that deals almost exclusively with real murderers and true crime.

RM#110 (cover: Hobo with a Shotgun) features an interview with Macabre front man Corporate Death. We present to you the rest of Aaron Von Lupton’s interview, with all of the gory details left intact. As Albert Fish likely said more than once to himself: Bon Appetit!

LIVE REVIEW: DEICIDE ‒ GOD IS DEAD, TO HELL WITH GOD TOUR

on March 10, 2011 | 5 Comments

DEICIDE ‒ GOD IS DEAD, TO HELL WITH GOD TOUR
w/Blackguard, Neuraxis and Pathology
The Opera House – Toronto
February 25, 2011
By The Gore-met

Deicide are an institution in extreme metal, one of the longest-running and best-selling bands in the genre. They came out of the Florida scene of the late ’80s that spawned such death metal stalwarts as Morbid Angel, Obituary, Malevolent Creation, Monstrosity, and transplanted Buffalonians Cannibal Corpse. From the start, Deicide courted controversy like none of these other bands, with virulently anti-Christian lyrics and oft-repeated claims of being practicing Satanists. For that reason they’ve been a band I’ve explored more out of obligation for their stature within the genre than any real love for their music. Satanic imagery is rife in death and black metal, but Deicide seemed to take it a little too seriously.

on November 5, 2010 | 1 Comment

Tired of straining your digits and ears trying to learn your favourite Cannibal Corpse songs the old-fashioned way? The band has taken pity on you and has issued a new guitar tablature book so you can see for yourself how the quintent from war-torn Buffalo smash out some of the most intense death metal riffs on this side of the pond. The 128-page book features the easy-to-read notations for thirteen CC classics including such heartwarming numbers as “Devoured by Vermin,” “Frantic Disembowelment,” “I Will Kill You,” “Make Them Suffer,” “Pit of Zombies,” “Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead,” “The Wretched Spawn,” and one of my personal favourites, “Vomit the Soul.”

Sinister Seven: Chris Reifert of Autopsy

on September 3, 2010 | 1 Comment

Seminal California gore/death metallers Autopsy, who originally called it quits in 1995, are back with a new EP called The Tomb Within (out October 5 as both a CD and 12″ vinyl release through Peaceville Records) after lead vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert pulled the plug on the band he’d assembled in Autopsy’s wake, Abscess (whose most recent album Dawn of Inhumanity was review in RM#100), earlier this summer. After giving the band’s repulsive new work a spin (which features such aural romance as “My Corpse Shall Rise,” “Seven Skulls” and “Mutant Village”), I stitched up my wounds, disinfected my headphones, put my desk back together (it was nearly rendered kindling from the onslaught) and sought out Reifert in order to subject him to a round of our favourite online inquisition.
