Cannibal Corpse To Release New Album “Chaos Horrific” In September, Reveal First Single And Fall Tour With Mayhem, Gorguts & Blood Incantation


Acclaimed death metal horde Cannibal Corpse will be dropping their sixteenth studio album “Chaos Horrific” on September 22nd through Metal Blade Records. Written in relative close proximity to the band’s 2021 album “Violence Unimagined“, this new record shares some similar DNA, according to bassist Alex Webster. He said of it, “To me, this album feels sort of like a continuation of Violence Unimagined.”

The band’s own Erik Rutan once again produced the effort, with the guitarist commenting, “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 song “Blood Blind” has arrived as the first single and is accompanied by an official music video directed by David Brodsky (Cattle Decapitation, Whitechapel). Drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz commented of the track, “‘Blood Blind‘ is about mass mutilations to reset the human race in a genocide that was embraced by the masses.”

Rutan added:

“‘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…”
