Cannibal Corpse
Style: Death Metal
Release date: 12 March, 2012
Playing time: 43:59

I suppose it comes as no surprise to you that the new Cannibal Corpse album starts with a bang? The opening track, Demented Aggression, is a death metal hammer par excellence with a riff which worms its way into your ears.

In fact, there are few surprises when it comes to Cannibal Corpse. You get more or less what you expect with every release: A powerful, heads-down collection of crushing death metal. Let's face it, Corpsegrinder and his merry men are stalwarts of this genre - they create a stability, a death metal shoulder you can always lean on if all else fails.

The recipe is by now well-known for Cannibal Corpse, and only strained from a few times, for example with the very, very cool break down in Scourge of Iron and the clean guitar intro of Followed Home Then Killed (well, as clean as it gets with Cannibal Corpse).

In conclusion: Little new under the sun from Cannibal Corpse as expected, but just the usual high, crushing standard from the death metal veterans. We wouldn't have it otherwise!
