Cannibal Corpse-Red Before Black

Well, the Cannibal Corpse train just keeps on chugging.  We’re on album #14 now.  Did they change things up this time around?  Is this a more mature and introspective Cannibal Corpse?  Have they introduced keyboards?  Clean singing?  Introduce fairy tale endings to their jaunty little ditties?

Fuck no.

This is fucking Cannibal Corpse, you dolt.  Murder, mayhem, dismemberment, disembowelment are on the menu as usual.  Cannibal Corpse are simply the AC/DC of gore.  They do their thing.  No surprises.  No left turns.  Just crunchy infectious metal overtop some seriously messed up lyrics.  But for fun, you know.

At this point, it’s really hard to slot a new album from these guys in with the rest of their discography because it all just sounds so similar.  I’d probably smack this new one right in the middle somewhere…maybe a smidge closer to the front of the list than the back.  It’s good.  It’s tight.  It will smash your face.
