Cannibal Corpse - Violence Unimagined (2021)


Unleashing one of their most crushing and ravaging releases of their long career, today we have the legendary Cannibal Corpse and their latest effort “Violence Unimagined”. Clocking in at 42 minutes over 11 tracks, with the addition of Erik Rutan as lead guitarist, the band sounds refreshed and ready for blood. Rarely disappointing over the years, Cannibal Corpse manage to blow past expectations due to the sheer brutality and effectiveness of this release.

As “Murderous Rampage” kicks off this release, we immediately see the fantastic interplay of Corpsegrinder’s signature growls alongside blistering guitar work, including some intense leads. With tracks like “Necrogenic Resurrection”, “Inhumane Harvest”, and “Condemnation Contagion” featuring the traditional meaty hooks, crafty tempo changes, and violent drumming, we found ourselves furiously headbanging most of the time.

Personal favorite songs include “Ritual Annihilation” and “Bound and Burned”, both straightforward but crushing pieces with plenty of powerful guitarwork, and the craftiness of “Slowly Sawn” and its playful guitar leads. For those that prefer the band’s earlier work, “Overtorture” has that violent edge that fast growls and cascading guitar riffs provide, while the drums keep things in line.

Overall, Cannibal Corpse has managed to surpass all expectations with a revitalized and much more viciously brutal sound than before. The addition of Erik Rutan gives the band that extra punch that many of us expected, while retaining their traditional catchiness and power. For over 42 minutes we get to hear the band at their best unleashing some of their most incisive and well-crafted tracks to date.
