CANTO: Cannibal Corpse, Igorrr, Khemmis, and More

Cannibal Corpse

One more day…

  • Emma Ruth Rundle, who had just been announced as a performer at FITM 2022, dropped a new track titled “Blooms of Oblivion”. That’s another one taken from Engine of Hell, which is out on November 5th through Sargent House.
  • Khemmis have announced some West Coast dates next January, supporting Deceiver. Not a thing I can do unfortunately, but tickets go on sale Friday for those that can. As a reminder, that album is out on November 19th through Nuclear Blast.
  • The primary tour announcement of the day, however, came from Cannibal Corpse, who announced a run of shows in February and March with the likes of Whitechapel, Revocation, and Shadow Of Intent. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
  • American Teeth have announced that their debut album, We Should Be Having Fun, will be out on October 29th through Fearless Records, along with a new video for the track “Kickflip”. Give that a listen right here.
  • And we’ll wrap up the day with the new live video from Igorrr for “Camel Dancefloor”. That footage is from the Pol’And’Rock Festival from back in July. Give it a watch below.

Album Review: Cannibal Corpse — “Violence Unimagined”

Fans can always rely on Cannibal Corpse for consistency as the band has been dropping mind-blowing, instant-classic death metal album after album over their 32 years of existence.  Every record follows a similar formula that is timeless and never grows stale.  Each is unique, but no one sticks out of the band’s discography as an outlier as they fit together like a puzzle.  From the sound to the overall feel to the cover art by Vince Locke, Violence Unimagined, the 15th and latest release, is a Cannibal Corpse album through and through.  It is another slam dunk by this legendary band and one of their best (quite possibly THE best) album to date.

Saw something last week that I had to comment on; if you’re still falling prey to “don’t listen to (insert name) band because they’re not an a label” or “skip (insert name) band because they suck or not worth the time,” STOP IT. Do your own research and come up with your own conclusions. If you don’t like it, fine. But at least, for you, there’s a reason beyond some gatekeeper spouting bullshit on a social media platform. Agree or disagree, I don’t care, but find what you like for your own reasons and if you don’t like it, move on. Or, start a blog and explain. Whatever. Moving on with new metal, Cannibal Corpse are death metal elite on their own but with Rutan in the fold they are GOD-TIER—go now and preorder that. If black ‘n’ roll is more your style, Bewitcher has you covered, post-rockers Crown have made a splash with us and I’m sure many of you will have the same experience, and Chain Gang Grave offers up a little something for the punk / metal / death rock / hardcore crowd with an explosive debut full length. Again, plenty here to research and plenty of excellent albums in the top slots as well as the list that follows. Go, get your fill.
