Cannibal Corpse - "Torture"

New album "Torture" due out in March, specific release date tba.

Tampa-based death metal legends CANNIBAL CORPSE have just completed work on their twelfth studio album appropriately titled Torture, which is due out through Metal Blade in March.

"We've approved the artwork and the album has been finished since the middle of November," Alex Webster tells BraveWords.com. But how hard is it this deep in their career to choose a title that the band and their rabid fanbase can revel in?

"Possibly Paul (Mazurkiewicz; drums) has chosen the most titles," the bassist reveals. "We all work together on this stuff. We have a lot of ideas and it doesn't automatically just happen. Basically in this band we have two kinds of album titles. We have the lengthier ones that are a bit more descriptive like Eaten Back To Life or The Wretched Spawn and then we have the simple one-word titles like Vile, The Bleeding, Bloodthirst, Kill and now this one, Torture. It's kind of cool being in the position that we're in because it might be a little more difficult for a smaller, less-known death metal band to use a title like Kill or Torture. Something like that works well for some reason. You'll notice a lot of underground bands that have very complex titles. For us we like to keep it simple. There are a lot of songs that relate to torture and execution on this album and it seemed to work for that reason. Naming it something loner and descriptive, I don't know if it would've been as effective."

Torture was recorded in September at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas with producer Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL) and the following month completed at Rutan's Mana Studios in Tampa, Florida. Rutan worked with Cannibal Corpse for both Kill (2006) and Evisceration Plague (2009) and is returning for a third battle.

Webster dissects the process: "We did the first part of the recording at Sonic Ranch; bass, drums and most of the rhythm guitar tracks. We did the guitar solos and George's ("Corpsegrinder" Fisher) singing in Florida. And we did the mix in Florida. We love Sonic Ranch. The isolation, the tranquillity and the excellence in gear they have out there is a great place to work on music."

This is just a sample of our chat today (January 11th) with Alex Webster who also talks about his jazz-fusion influences, the longevity of a death metal band, the upcoming Torture tour which will hit North America twice this year (prior to that: Destroyers Of The Faith in the UK, Extremefest and Full Of Hate in Europe) and more torture tactics in creating album number 12! Stay tuned!

Hopefully they go with a gory album cover this time. Two plain titles in a row is pushing it.

Agreed, it's not the same when retailers aren't banning their cover art

Title wise seems very similar to Kill. I'm really hoping we get a nice, gory, and fucked up album cover this time. The last 2 covers were very disappointing. They can still do gory covers. They just need a little slip or some shit for the stores. Like what Rammstien did with their latest album.

Yeah I heard that the new album cover is going to be pretty fucked up, at least I hope so. I'm not expecting Wretched Spawn pt. 2 but at least something better than Evisceration Plague.

Interesting. First "Kill", now "Torture". Yes, both Alex and George have said the art will be a gory return to earlier albums .
