If there's one thing that epitomises the ethos of Cannibal Corpse, it's violence. From their grotesque lyrics, to their shocking album covers that have been banned in many countries and, as it turns out, their music videos are completely vile too.
Take the brand new single 'Inhumane Harvest', for example, which is the latest display of filth from their upcoming 15th record Violence Unimagined - the video shows a man being dragged to a dingy operating table against his will and having his organs graphically harvested while still awake, while a woman is forced to watch the carnage unfold in front of her very eyes.
It's absolutely not for the faint of heart, and if you make it all the way through you'll be left with nothing but the panicked and agonising yells of the man being operated on.
Watch this very disturbing, NSFW video below:
Violence Unimagined is due out on April 16, and it will be the first Cannibal Corpse album to feature Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal) on guitar, who replaces longtime guitarist Pat O'Brien following his late 2018 arrest after a bizarre string of incidents that found a cache of weaponry in his home. The band's bassist Alex Webster says:
“I think the most noticeable difference on this record will be the addition of Erik to the band. He wrote three full songs for the record, music and lyrics, and his song writing and guitar playing have added something new, and I think his musical style integrated into ours very well.”
He’s a great friend of ours, so on a personal level, he’s been a perfect fit, as we knew he would be. Beyond that, he’s one of the hardest working people I know, in music or otherwise, and he maintains a high energy, positive demeanor in challenging situations where other people might go in a negative direction. This energy and great attitude rubs off on the rest of us as well. That’s really a perfect situation to have when you add someone to a band, or any kind of team: someone who’s great at what they do, and also inspires the people around them.”|
