Formed last year, Malefic Throne finds Morbid Angel frontman Steve Tucker joining forces with former Angelcorpse guitarist Gene Palubicki and drummer John Longstreth (also of Origin and Hate Eternal), the trio producing an eponymously titled four track EP (released via Hells Headbangers) of finest quality death metal.
Legendary Cannibal Corpse vocalist George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher will release a self-titled solo album through Perseverance Music Group on February 4th, 2022. Corpsegrinder – the album is a 10-song effort is co-produced by Nick Bellmore (Dee Snider/Kingdom Of Sorrow) and Jamey Jasta (Hatebreed). The album features a guest appearance from Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal) on the track “Acid Vat” and will be released through Jasta’s new label, Perseverance Music Group. Corpsegrinder will be available for pre-order in the coming weeks; in the meantime, fans can check out the new video teaser here:
While it seems strange to refer to a sound that has been around for over two decades as “modern”, it feels completely accurate to describe the sonic barrage of Aeon as Modern Death Metal. Renowned for keeping the intensity levels up – backed by a production to level small towns with its ripped, lean torso – for their fifth release Swedish violence-dealers have shown no relenting despite lockdown, No extra inches have been added to their waist-bands, and no sign of flabbiness added to their carb-free sensory assault.
Back with another album cover deemed unsuitable for public consumption, it’s nice to see death metal legends Cannibal Corpse still shocking the squeamish and easily offended. Having to replace controversial artwork with something a little more palatable had almost become a tradition at one time but the new record Violence Unimagined(Metal Blade) is the first time the band has actually been deemed worthy of censorship since 2012.
Hours after the announcement came down that Erik Rutan had joined Cannibal Corpse as a full time member, he has stated that he plans to continue his long running death metal band Hate Eternal. He made a statement via Facebook.
Cannibal Corpse have announced that Erik Rutan of Hate Eternal will fill in for guitarist Pat O’Brien he deals with his personal issues. Rutan will tour Decibel Magazine Tour and the upcoming US leg of Slayer’s final tour happening this May joined by Lamb of God, and Amon Amarth. This won’t be the first time these death metal powerhouses have worked together; Rutan has produced four albums with Cannibal Corpse (Kill, Evisceration Plague, Torture, Red Before Black, all Metal Blade) and is uniquely equipped to fill the role – he is one of the death metal’s most acclaimed guitarists and is known for his time as part of Morbid Angel (who are co-headlining the Decibel tour alongside Cannibal) throughout the 90s and early 2000s, as well as handling vocals/guitars and production duties for Hate Eternal.Continue reading →
Oh look, Hate Eternal has a new album on the way. Sweet, let’s see how long it takes before I run out of adjectives to describe brutal Death Metal. On Upon Desolate Sands (Season of Mist) I think I made it to ‘Portal of Myriad’ only to realize I was running on fumes. I’m not sure what kind of pact Erik Rutan struck up with Cthulu, but it’s given him access to enough pulverizing song ideas to power seven long-players and produce countless Death Metal standouts.Continue reading →
