​Cannibal Corpse "Code of the Slashers" new track released

The Florida-based death metallers Cannibal Corpse presented a fresh track "Code of the Slashers", which will appear on the band's upcoming album "Red Before Black". The record’s is set to release on November 3 this year.

The new LP, which comes out three years after 2014’s LP "A Skeletal Domain", was recorded at the Mana Recording Studios in Saint Petersburg, Florida, with producer/engineer Erik Rutan (Soilent Green, Belphegor, Hate Eternal), who previously worked on Cannibal Corpse’s releases "Kill" (2006), "Evisceration Plague" (2009), and "Torture" (2012).

"We always try to make our music aggressive, but where an album like 'A Skeletal Domain' [2014] was definitely aggressive, it has a targeted refinement that the new album doesn't. 'Red Before Black' is as well executed as anything we've done, but it has a rawness to it that we haven't had in a long time," asserts bassist Alex Webster. "We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums," adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. "And, as Alex said, musically I think it's the most raw sound we've had — and at the same time I think it's our most focused, tightest and catchiest record."
