Just a week or two ago, it was rumoured that a new CANNIBAL CORPSE album titled, “Red Before Black” would be released this year on November 3, which would be a follow up to 2014’s pulverizing “Skeletal Domain“. Confirmation did not take much long as it is official that the band would be releasing their 14th studio album, “Red Before Black“. With the artwork, track-listing, release date out, the Florida based death metallers have put out the single “Code Of The Slashers” available for stream on their Bandcamp page.
“Code Of The Slashers” was also teased in the form of a short snippet of it’s official music video just yesterday on the band’s various social media pages. The new single is mid paced but it doesn’t leave behind the fact that, it sounds brutal and is a testament to CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s sadistic, vile and unstoppable imagery that the band has earned under it’s feather in just under a stunning and punishing three decades of world wide death metal dominance.
The single was premiered on SiriusXM Liquid Metal last night but we’ve got the stream here for you all who might have missed the premiere. Without much ado and blabbering, go ahead and get wild, stream the new single “Code Of The Slashers” below.
“Red Before Black” was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in Saint Petersburg, Florida with producer/engineer Erik Rutan (SOILENT GREEN, BELPHEGOR, HATE ETERNAL), who previously worked with CANNIBAL CORPSE on 2006’s hit “Kill“, 2009’s “Evisceration Plague” and 2012’s “Torture“. The album releases on November 3.
