Cannibal Corpse announce new album ‘Red Before Black’

CANNIBAL CORPSE have announced a brand new album!

The upcoming album, titled Red Before Black, is the band’s fourteenth studio album and is scheduled to be released in November this year! The upcoming album was produced by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, GOATWHORE). Speaking about the upcoming album, bassist Alex Webster says, “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. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently. Drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz adds, “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. And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band has released a new music video for the first single from the upcoming album, Code of the Slashers. The new music video was directed by Zev Deans who says, “after crawling through abandoned buildings, crashing our van into a tree in the middle of a scene, witnessing a real stabbing and drenching ourselves in fake blood in a derelict park at 5am, we can safely say this was a proper introduction to the slasher genre for Panorama Programming. We brought a slab of fresh meat back from a rotting metropolis, and we’re serving it to you raw. Come and get it.”
