Nuclear Blast Records (2012)
You know what you get. As with some other bands, such as AC/DC, Motörhead, Slayer et al, Cannibal Corpse can't take too many turns. Fast and brutal death metal with a couple of exceptions. What else is new?
One could of course bring up the question of necessity. I mean, do we really need another Cannibal Corpse album? Frankly speaking, of course we don't. Then again, do we need to eat another piece of candy? Of course not, but still, we're onto the next chocolate, the next Pepsi Max, the next TV-show we don't have to watch... And of course we dig into "Torture" with the knowledge that the wheel will not be reinvented today, nor any other days in the world of Cannibal Corpse.
What Cannibal Corpse do is do to their thing with conviction, such as the insanely heavy "Scoure Of Iron", the small bass extras here and there, the sheer brutality, Corpsegrinder's voice of death metal, buzzing guitars, pounding drums, great solos. I mean, you get what you expect. And live it's even better.
