Party Cannon May Have Just Raised The Bar For Death Metal Album Cover Art With Their Action Park-Inspired New Record


Party Cannon have found a new label home with Unique Leader Records. The slamming death metal outfit will have their next album “Injuries Are Inevitable” out on April 26th through the label. For now, you can take in a video for the first single, “Weird, But Not Illegal“.

The record drew inspiration from the defunct Action Park amusement and water park, which became notorious for questionable safety practices.

The band commented:

“We are hyped to announce Unique Leader Records are joining the party — a label that should know much better. It’s amazing to be working with the label that put out such classics as Gorgasm, Disgorge, Inveracity, Disavowed as well as
current favourites such as Waking The Cadaver, Disentomb, and Kraanium and we can’t thank them enough for having us onboard.

Now I know what all you fellow death metal mega virgins are thinking, an underground brutal band signs to a bigger label, have they gone soft? I can assure you that we’re not the type of band to get a bigger advance and start making the softest music imaginable under the guise of ‘good songwriting’, Unique Leader encouraged us to make the most sonically offensive album we could. This is pure, 1000% Party Slam in its most concentrated form.”

As you’ll see below, the featured artwork done by Daemorph for the record is unquestionably an eye-catching affair, setting a high bar (or perhaps lowering it to some) for death metal cover art.
