Cannibal Corpse – Bible of Butchery
When this project was announced, I have to admit, I was a bit hesitant about the results. In Bible of Butchery’s favor is Joel McIver. McIver is an excellent author (if you haven’t read To Live is to Die: The Cliff Burton Story, I highly recommend it as it’s the best book I’ve read about Metallica) and attaching his name to the project makes it a win….initially. Announcing the book alongside the surprise announcement of a new Cannibal album, an album, mind you, whose street date was only six week’s away was great cause for concern. I hoped I was overthinking the release and the book would be a tell-all endeavor. The negatives, however, far outweigh McIver’s pedigree.

Revocation-Deathless

It’s not often that the first words out of a listener’s mouth is, “Who produced this album, it sounds amazing!” That is the case, however, with Revocation’s new long-player, Deathless. For the record, it was produced by Zeuss at Planet Z studios. Not only has Zeuss captured the brutality of Revocation’s live shows, but he has cleaned the sound up just enough that everything is crystal clear without being over-produced.

CannibalCorpse-

The Cannibal Corpse sound hasn’t changed much over the past twenty years. Horror movie lyrics, growled over heavily distorted guitar work, and punishing drums. That describes pretty much every album the band has released. What the band does, however, they do extremely well and this album is no different. The guitar riffs just keep adding up until the listener feels that there can’t be any more……and then another riff comes along. As much as one might try, it’s nearly impossible not to bob your head along to each song. It’s only natural, correct? Riff, pummel, repeat. It seems as simple as that, but Cannibal Corpse always brings a little something new with each record, and A Skeletal Domain is no different.

This fall is going to be a monster for metal tours, and it just got a little bit better.  The upcoming Dying Fetus, Goatwhore, Malevolence, and Fallujah tour has added additional dates to make metal fans a bit happier.  The bad news is that Goatwhore bassist, James Harvey, will be sitting out the trek due to the birth of his first child.  TA from San Antonio band Hod will be filling in.  Tour dates below.
