Cannibal Corpse releases Evisceration Plague
Evisceration Plague is the eleventh studio album by American death metal band Cannibal Corpse.
The album was produced at Mana Recording Studios by Hate Eternal guitarist Erik Rutan.
Bassist Alex Webster said about the record: "In Cannibal Corpse, our goal has always been to try and make each new album we record our heaviest. That goal was a bit more challenging this time since we were extremely satisfied with our last album Kill, but we knew that by working with producer Erik Rutan at Mana Recording Studios again, we would be able to start at that same level of heaviness and take it even further. Now that we can hear the finished product, I would say we've been able to achieve this goal, and I think our fans will agree. 'Evisceration Plague' has the best guitar sound we've ever recorded, and the entire band has never played with more precision and power. We can't wait until you all get a chance to hear the album in early 2009, because we think you'll be as happy with it as we are."
In another interview with Terrorizer magazine, drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz stated his thoughts on the album saying: "yeah I mean it's not a bad album. I think working with Erik again has definitely brought things up a little for us. I mean all the band were involved in the writing process of this album along with Rutan and so I think this one's a tad more individual than Kill."
The cover art was released December 14 and samples were made available through Amazon.com. The album was released with a bonus track in Europe and DVD as a deluxe edition. An autographed version of the album is now available for pre-order on the Metal Blade Records website.
Evisceration Plague debuted at #66 on the Billboard 200 with 9,571 units sold, making it the band's highest charting debut to date.
It is the 5th Cannibal Corpse album to contain a title track and a video was produced for the song.
They also released a comic book where each song has its own comic.
A video was produced for the song "Priests Of Sodom". The video was released on March 25, 2010.
