Hear Cannabis Corpse’s Putrid New Death-Metal Song “In Dank Purity”

On the surface, a band like Cannabis Corpse probably shouldn’t have lasted as long as it has. A weed-themed death-metal act bursting with inside jokes isn’t exactly something that should have longevity outside of a record or two. The fact that the band — which features members of Municipal Waste, Six Feet Under and Black Dahlia Murder — has been kicking since 2006 (and have released three LPs and three EPs) is truly a testament to their songwriting ability. And it’s hard to argue with the material that they produce: scorching death metal with nods to past legends (whether in musical tribute or in jest). 

The tributes continue with their new song “In Dank Purity” (hello Monstrosity) from their forthcoming LP Left Hand Pass (hi Entombed), which is due via Season of Mist on September 8th. Musically, the new track is no laughing matter: the putrid death metal cut uses start-stop rhythms and alternates between blasts and a d-beat-y gallop to bring home its worm-ridden point. So pack the bowl and inhale “In Dank Purity” deeply, available for the first time below. And check out the lyrics for the track while you're down there. 

Left Hand Pass is currently up for preorder via the label. Smoke ‘em if ya got ‘em.



"IN DANK PURITY" Lyrics

"Watching, waiting…
The wretched art that soon I'll be creating
is placating my abhorrent evil lust
my illness in the stillness
is worsened by voices so relentless
I can't resist their hideous and unyielding commandment

My victim's home alone, its late at night…
I have been studying her every movement
Smoking weed she did not notice me
sneaking into her dark apartment

So close I can smell her lovely skin
Bloodcurdling murder will soon begin
The gleam of the knife raised above my head
fills me with remorse it will be stained by bloodshed

I FEEL!
A wave of sick pleasure as I begin stabbing her
MURDER!
Gore showers on me I am filled with ecstasy
I FEEL!
A wave of sick pleasure as I begin stabbing her

ALL IN DANK PURITY

Gagging on blood, a quick struggle
her whimpering only makes me chuckle
I try to savor each and every moment
euphoric my face locked in an evil grin
I shall unlock the beauty deep within
her lungs still contain the smoke of her final toke

Insane, Psychotic
each slash and stab i find very erotic
A monster reveling in depravity
I can not control these urges
or when the demon inside reemerges
This violence is the only thing thats real within myself

I FEEL!
A wave of sick pleasure as I begin stabbing her
MURDER!
Gore showers on me I am filled with ecstasy
I FEEL!
A wave of sick pleasure as I begin stabbing her

ALL IN DANK PURITY

Not done yet, so frantic i've become obsessed
breaking the ribs to open up her chest
Take time to admire the heavenly organs
cannot wait to poke a small hole in her lung
 inhale the smoke inside this pretty one
my repugnant vision is now done..."
