Cannibal Corpse Recording 12th Studio Album
Putting together a follow-up to their 2009 album Evisceration Plague, death metal band Cannibal Corpse has been in the studio recording new tracks with producer Erik Rutan. Working with the group on their past two releases, Rutan is joining Cannibal Corpse for the first time at Sonic Ranch studios, where the band has recorded several of their albums.
About working with the well-known death metal group, Rutan said: "I am super excited to work with Cannibal Corpse for our third album together. We are determined to make the best album we possibly can. Everyone is very focused and the new material is awesome. There is a great blend of classic, old-school Cannibal Corpse with a newer, more heavy, dynamic and aggressive approach. I look forward to the challenge of making one heavy as hell record!"
So far, according to bassist Alex Webster, the band has been rehearsing and recording new songs for the past seven months: "After having spent the past seven months writing and rehearsing new material, we're very excited to finally begin recording. We've had great success working with Erik Rutan on our past two albums so we've decided to work with him again, but to keep things fresh we decided on a change of location — we're returning to Sonic Ranch studios in Texas, where we've recorded several albums in the past. We are psyched to see how this combination works out- we feel it's pairing that could result in our best album yet."
Those looking to catch Cannibal Corpse live this fall with have a few chances on both sides of the Atlantic. Announced in August, the band will be part of the Full of Hate 2012 tour, with Behemoth, Legion of the Damned, Misery Index, and Suicidal Angels, and will do several dates in February and March in Europe.
