Tampa, Florida’s gore, flesh and blood thirsty savage beast collectively known, as Cannibal Corpse is back its newest gut wrenching release in the twisted form of “Torture”. “Torture” is definitely a fitting title for the 12 skull shattering, blood spilling and spleen mutilating tracks of pure death metal found here. With such torso ripping and brutality-ridden tracks like “Scourge Of Iron”, “Encased In Concrete”, “As Deep As The Knife Will Go” and “Followed Home Then Killed” and eight other nightmare scenarios, this is got to be Cannibal Corpse’s sickest masterpiece to date.
What makes “Torture” such an exciting and a brutal listen at the same time is its “Eaten Back To Life” rawness and corpse torturing savagery.+
Their performance on this CD is tight and the flawless execution of the music is superb to the point where everyones’ sickened and twisted insanity can be easily experienced.
George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher belches out his trademarked deathly growls with immense bestiality and angst to pulverize even the bravest death metal fan at heart.
The ever-changing dynamics of “Torture’s” music from mid paced to a deathly, rapid assault on the senses makes the 12 songs on offer here a ghoulish pleasure to listen to.
Their album artwork here is a grotesque piece of art that is sure to make you throw up last night’s meal and then some. Cannibal Corpse’s longtime artists Vincent Locke has definitely brought out the band’s gory and blood soaked vision to life as always.
Shit, just staring at that their album artwork for lengthy periods will give you earth and mind shattering dreams, ha, ha.
Listen up death metal maniacs, “Torture” is Cannibal Corpse’s finest hour in corpse decimating death metal of the highest caliber.
