Biography

What more can be said, in this Year Of The Corpse 2009, that hasn’t already been whispered, grunted or screamed about the almighty Cannibal? They’ve smashed—nay, hammer smashed—every boundary set before them, defied every censor set upon them, and besmirched every country that would have them. After two decades of unending death metal torment, the band’s calling ... Read more in Amazon's Cannibal Corpse Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the twelfth studio album from the American Death Metal band. The follow-up to 2009's Evisceration Plague, Torture offers up 12 tracks of maniacally precise, soul-searing death metal. Torture was produced by Hate Eternal's Erik Rutan at his own Mana Recording Studio in St. Petersburg, Florida as well as Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, and features the maniacal cover art by longtime artist Vincent Locke.

Customer Reviews

This album shows why Cannibal Corpse is one of the elite bands in death metal.
J. Hill
It is packed with more great riffs and drumming (including some rhythmic, marching drum fills), and a fiery solo comes screaming through the mix, here, as well.
A. Stutheit
Their image, sound, and production values increase with every new release it feels like.
M. Brindley

On 2008's career retrospective `Centuries of Torment' George `Corpsegrinder' Fisher (vocals) observed when they finally call it quits he is likely to have neck problems from all the years of head banging. Cannibal Corpse have been in existence for almost 25 years and there is no end in sight. Like the undead they seem destined to forever roam this planet, slowly evolving their sound with each new album. In the last decade CC has gone from strength to strength. 2003 saw them become the first Death Metal act to reach sales of over one million discs, album No 10 `KILL' (2006) took the band to new levels of critical acclaim and 2009's `Evisceration Plague' entered the billboard 200 at #66 their highest ever position.

Of course album sales do not equate to music quality and while it's arguable if they've since released anything as essential as `Tomb of the Mutilated' or `The Bleeding' this is a band that has made a career of producing albums of ever increasing quality. Recorded late 2011 at Sonic Ranch studios Texas (Gore Obsessed, The Wretched Spawn) as well as Mana Studios Florida (KILL, Evisceration Plague) album no 12 `Torture' is the 3rd to be produced by Erik Rutan. In recent interviews Alex Webster (bass) explained that a lot of effort had been made to ensure each song had it's own unique identity and compared to the two previous albums this is indeed the facet of Torture that defines it above anything else.

As album opener `Demented Aggression' kicks in the first thing you notice is the rich production and depth of sound. This one has a thrashy feel. It's not quite CC at full force- not quite `Hammer Smashed Face' or `The Time to Kill is Now' but it's a nice warm up.

Cannibal Corpse, purveyors of gory death metal for more than twenty years, show they haven't lost a step with their latest blast of extremity. First things first, the real story here is Alex Webster, who puts a unique stamp on this band's music with his incredible bass playing. Webster shines on Torture, exhibiting an impressive range of skills. He rumbles along with the solid death metal tracks like Demented Aggression, provides a heavy, distorted buzz beneath Sarcophagic Frenzy, and dazzles with technical brilliance on Intestinal Crank, The Strangulation Chair, and Caged...Contorted. Big points go to Webster for helping CC distinguish themselves from other bands. This is no small point, as several parts of Torture remind me of a few Florida death metal acts, plus a certain older band that heavily influenced them; but, Webster's bass keeps each song entrenched in the Cannibal Corpse sound and makes them their own.

Torture starts with a bang. Three of the first four songs remind me in spirit of Slayer's Hell Awaits-Reign in Blood period. It isn't that they sound like those songs, but the heaviness, production, and breakneck speed create the same atmosphere of ferocity. The one exception in this group, Scourge of Iron, slows things down with a heavy crawl that brings Morbid Angel to mind. The fifth track, As Deep as the Knife Will Go, starts with an intense blast beat that shifts into a thrashy death metal crunch that reminds me more than a little of Deicide. The next three tracks that make up the album's midsection inject a trace of variety, keeping the songs from starting to sound the same. Track 6, Intestinal Crank, features some of the most technical riffing and bass on the album, plus a couple of great solos.

I've been a Corpse fan going all the way back to "Eaten" when I was 14 years old.
Corpse has evolved over the years that's for sure.
When I read that this album would be a return to the sound of their earlier albums I was excited.
I heard the two tracks that the band released and I was very happy with "Scourge" and "Demented".
Now that I have the disc in hand?
Is this really a return to form?
I would say yes.
It has the catchy hooks that earlier albums like "Bleeding" had but with the more tech elements of recent albums.
Stand out tracks...
Demented.
Scourge.
Followed Home.
Chair.
Caged.
Avenged.

There really aren't any weak tracks.
Paul blasts away with skill and conviction.
No one can produce the rapid fire barks of Corpse Grinder and he excels here.
Webster, the bass master proves why he's one of death metals finest players.
Pat and Rob shred every song to pieces.
The production is crisp and clear.
All in all another fine addition to the Corpse catalog.
Is it their definitive moment?
Yes and no.
Every album is a definitive moment for this group.
I can name at least one or two epic moments from every album and this one is no different.
After all these years Cannibal still shows everyone how it's done.
Fast and brutal with tons of dynamics.
Right up there with their best.
Recommended.

Cannibal Corpse have outsold every other death metal outfit bar none. Only Morbid Angel and Obituary have posted numbers that give CC any serious competition. There must be a secret to their success, and if there is one, it's the old "if it ain't broke don't fix it" adage that outfits like AC/DC and Motorhead have used to great effect throughout their lengthy careers.
Still, amidst the usual blast beats and gore lyrics and a wall of guitars that sound like a parade featuring nothing but chainsaws marching down the street, Cannibal Corpse have managed to create a metal monster with "Torture". One thing that cannot be denied is their superb musicianship, and they have seen fit this time around to let it show a little more. It's a scorcher of a CD that starts off in typical bat out of hell fashion, with Eric Rutan's fine production making the guitars sound like a mighty wall of metallic Armageddon. It's the third track, "Scourge Of Iron" that shows us a band that has grown and actually plays at a slow pace, but no less brutally. This tune gives the guitars a little breathing room, and we can hear the leads ripping over a tremendous bluesy stomp that will incur severe cranial damage when they unleash this song on the unsuspecting moshers. Bassist Alex Webster has a couple of solo spots that show off his considerable chops and put him at the top of the heap as far as death metal bass players go.
Stylistically, Cannibal Corpse blend the chops of death metal with the most severe elements of grindcore for a sound that grinds your eardrums into dust. Despite the morbidity and cartoonish imagery their cover art suggests, when it comes to chops and ferocity, there are damned few outfits who can share a stage with Cannibal Corpse, and "Torture" is a great addition to an already bruising catalog.
