CANNIBAL CORPSE have apparently entered the studio to begin work on their next album. The new disc, which is tentatively due before the end of the year, will be the follow-up to 2017’s “Red Before Black”.
On Sunday (May 31), CANNIBAL CORPSE singer George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher posted an Instagram photo of him in the studio, along with the following message: “Guess what I’m doing @manarecording @cannibalcorpseofficial @alexwebsterbass @erikrutanofficial #paulmazurkiewicz #robbarrett @metalbladerecords”
“Red Before Black” was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in Saint Petersburg, Florida with producer/engineer Erik Rutan (SOILENT GREEN, BELPHEGOR, HATE ETERNAL), who previously worked with CANNIBAL CORPSE on 2006’s “Kill”, 2009’s “Evisceration Plague” and 2012’s “Torture”.
Rutan made his live debut with CANNIBAL CORPSE at the opening show of the “Decibel Magazine Tour” in February 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. He played with the band as the temporary replacement for guitarist Pat O’Brien, who was arrested in December 2018 for burglary and assaulting a police officer while his Florida home was in flames.
