George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher Open To A Track With Chris Barnes, Talks Killswitch Engage, Etc. Supergroup


Cannibal Corpse frontman George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher appears on the latest episode of Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta‘s ‘The Jasta Show‘. Among the topics approached is Fisher‘s long-gestating side project with Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz and ex-The Black Dahlia Murder drummer Shannon Lucas. According to Fisher, recording for the project is done and Dutkiewicz has been mixing it in his spare time. Fisher also revealed that Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach wrote much of the lyrical content of the effort:

“Well Jesse from Killswitch wrote the lyrics, because I said look, I told D. I originally was going to write stuff and you know what? It’s just never been my thing and we were getting down to when I was supposed to go up there. And he just said ‘look, I’ll ask Jesse to write some stuff.’ So he wrote it and I just said I don’t want no ‘pro-religious crap’ ’cause I ain’t about all that. Anyway so it’s more just about like getting revenge against corrupt motherfuckers and shit like that.”

He continued:

“And so he [Leach] wrote a bunch of lyrics and Adam arranged a lot of it and then when I went up there we recorded it in his bedroom of his house. And basically, I would be like ‘no wait we gotta change this, fix that.’ Maybe we’d tweak a word or take a word out or take a couple words out or take some lines out, we just basically fucked with it, you know? And I went up 2-3 different times and now it’s all done and we’re just waiting…”

He remains unsure which label will release the effort, though he seems to think that Metal Blade is the top contender for the project. Jasta also approached Fisher about guesting on Jasta track alongside his Cannibal Corpse predecessor, Chris Barnes (now of Six Feet Under). Fisher said he is open to the idea and Jasta for his part hopes to make it happen. Speaking on his relationship with Barnes, Fisher said:

“There’s not hatred dude, I’m fucking 45, I don’t have time for this.”
