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.

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.

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, 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.

When the band made the song "Demented Agression" available before the album release, I wasn't impressed by it. Reviewers were literally creaming their pants over it, but it just didn't do much for me. I've been a fan since 1992 (the 'Butchered at Birth' era), and to be honest, their last album didn't sustain me for 3 years. "Evisceration Plague" was a pretty damn good album, but when contrasted with their top material ("The Bleeding," "Bloodthirst," "The Wretched Spawn" and of course their 2nd and 3rd albums), it paled in comparison.

Then, the album finally arrived, and I sat down with the lyric sheet and give it a once through. My skepticism quickly dissipated. By the time the eerie, slow intro of "Followed home then killed" rolled around, I was a convert.

The album is overall a bit more fast-paced than their last one, but there's still an almost perfect balance of chugging groove and all-out aggression.

Alex Webster's presence on bass is HUGE on this album. The mix is clearer, and he gets several solo breaks, most notably on "The Strangulation Chair."

No, there's nothing truly groundbreaking, but they clearly weren't going for an entirely new direction. This is solidly written and masterfully executed death metal. Once again, CC proves they're musicians to be respected. Whether you like the band or not, if you play a musical instrument you should realize how incredibly complex this music is.

All in all, this is a very solid album. If you're a fan, and were a bit disappointed by 'Evisceration Plague,' give this one a spin. You might just re-convert.
