Cannibal Corpse Enter Studio with Producer Erik Rutan
We've just received word that death metal lifers Cannibal Corpse have begun recording their twelfth studio album at Sonic Ranch studios in Texas with producer Erik Rutan. The new full-length will be the follow-up to 2009's Evisceration Plague.
"After having spent the past 7 months writing and rehearsing new material, we're very excited to finally begin recording," says bassist Alex Webster. "We've had great success working with Erik Rutan on our past two albums so we've decided to work with him again, but to keep things fresh we decided on a change of location - we're returning to Sonic Ranch studios in Texas, where we've recorded several albums in the past. We are psyched to see how this combination works out- we feel it's pairing that could result in our best album yet."
"I am super excited to work with Cannibal Corpse for our 3rd album together," says Rutan, who worked with Cannibal Corpse on both Kill (2006) and Evisceration Plague. "We are determined to make the best album we possibly can. Everyone is very focused and the new material is awesome. There is a great blend of classic, old school CC with a newer, more heavy, dynamic and aggressive approach. I look forward to the challenge of making one heavy as hell record!"
We're told that more details on the album, including art, songs and title, will be revealed in the next few months. But for now, tide yourself over with this video for "Priests of Sodom," from Evisceration Plague:
