Cannibal Corpse to release ‘Violence Unimagined’ on April 16

Cannibal Corpse will release its 15th studio album, “Violence Unimagined,” on April 16, 2021, via Metal Blade Records. For a first preview of the record, the new single “Inhumane Harvest” can be heard at metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse.

“It really follows the path we’ve been going down for a few years now,” bassist and founding member Alex Webster said of the new album. “I think we approach the writing in a similar way most every time: each of us try to write the heaviest, most memorable songs we can. We want each song to have its own identifiable character. Showing my age, I like to say you can ‘drop the needle’ on any point of one of our albums and quickly tell which song you’re listening to.”

This is the band’s first album featuring guitarist Erik Rutan, known for his roles in Morbid Angel, Ripping Corpse and fronting Hate Eternal. He has been filling in on live guitar for Cannibal Corpse since 2019.

“I think the most noticeable difference on this record will be the addition of Erik to the band. He wrote three full songs for the record, music and lyrics, and his song writing and guitar playing have added something new, and I think his musical style integrated into ours very well,” Webster said. “He’s a great friend of ours, so on a personal level, he’s been a perfect fit, as we knew he would be. Beyond that, he’s one of the hardest working people I know, in music or otherwise, and he maintains a high energy, positive demeanor in challenging situations where other people might go in a negative direction. This energy and great attitude rubs off on the rest of us as well. That’s really a perfect situation to have when you add someone to a band, or any kind of team: someone who’s great at what they do, and also inspires the people around them.”
