Cannibal Corpse have announced their sixteenth studio album “Chaos Horrific”, out on September 22 via Metal Blade Records. This new album shares some similarities with the band’s previous effort, “Violence Unimagined” (2021), according to bassist Alex Webster:
To me, this album feels sort of like a continuation of ‘Violence Unimagined’.
Guitarist Erik Rutan once again produced the album, and comments:
I never go into a record thinking about anything, I just let the writing flow freely with no limitations. But this time, I knew I wanted to push the envelope a bit in a different direction than ‘Violence Unimagined’; expand the dynamics, explore new territory without departing from what Cannibal Corpse is and always shall be.
The single “Blood Blind” has been released earlier, alongside an official music video directed by David Brodsky (Cattle Decapitation, Whitechapel). Drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz comments:
‘Blood Blind‘ is about mass mutilations to reset the human race in a genocide that was embraced by the masses.
‘Blood Blind‘ was the first song musically that I wrote for ‘Chaos Horrific’. It all started with that funeral march of a first riff floating around in my head and it took off from there. Heavy and disturbing, it worked its way into an aggressive smorgasbord of depth and swirling darkness! I thought it would be great to collaborate so I had Paul add his lyrical stamp to it…
