After 35 years of demolishing eardrums worldwide, death metal legends Cannibal Corpse are poised to unleash their sixteenth studio album, Chaos Horrific. Which is set to drop later this year on September 22nd, adding yet another chapter to the bands already long and storied history at the forefront of extreme music. 

Written in the wake of their last genre defining release, Violence Unimagined. The bands latest album promises to be a natural evolution of their abrasive signature sound that takes things further than ever before. “I never go into a record thinking about anything, I just let the writing flow freely with no limitations,” says guitarist and producer Erik Rutan. “But this time, I knew I wanted to push the envelope a bit in a different direction than Violence Unimagined; expand the dynamics, explore new territory without departing from what Cannibal Corpse is and always shall be.”

To mark it’s announcement earlier this week, the band released their first single from Chaos Horrific, the appropriately titled, Blood Blind. Complete with a full length music video directed by David Bordsky of My Good Eye fame. According to drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz, Blood Blind is about “Mass mutilations to reset the human race in a genocide that was embraced by the masses.” Making it a suitably ferocious and disturbing introduction Cannibal Corpse’s latest brainchild.

As if that wasn’t enough, the band also unveiled Chaos Horrific’s supremely gruesome cover art. Which comes courtesy of American artist and longtime collaborator, Vince Locke. Who has been responsible for the ultraviolent aesthetic of every Cannibal Corpse release since Eaten Back To Life. As well as numerous contributions to comic books, such as 2000 AD’s Judge Dredd series. 

Chaos Horrifc will be released via Metal Blade Records on September 22nd and is available to pre-order now on CD, vinyl and cassette.
