US death metallers Cannibal Corpse has begun recording their twelfth studio album at Sonic Ranch studios in Texas with producer Erik Rutan. The band has spent months writing the album and has recorded at Sonic Ranch in the past, but never with Rutan at the helm. More details on the album, including art, songs, title and more will be revealed in the months to follow. For now, the band is hard at work forging their next death metal offering.

Bassist Alex Webster adds: "After having spent the past 7 months writing and rehearsing new material, we're very excited to finally begin recording. We've had great success working with Erik Rutan on our past two albums so we've decided to work with him again, but to keep things fresh we decided on a change of location - we're returning to Sonic Ranch studios in Texas, where we've recorded several albums in the past. We are psyched to see how this combination works out- we feel it's pairing that could result in our best album yet."

Erik Rutan worked with Cannibal Corpse for both Kill (2006) and Evisceration Plague (2009) and is returning for a third time.

Rutan explains further: "I am super excited to work with Cannibal Corpse for our 3rd album together. We are determined to make the best album we possibly can. Everyone is very focused and the new material is awesome. There is a great blend of classic, old school CC with a newer, more heavy, dynamic and aggressive approach. I look forward to the challenge of making one heavy as hell record!"

Is it too late in their career to give us something a little different?
Can't say I'm really excited about this. They've become the very definition of generic death metal.

Great news! I'm looking forward to this one.

Hell fucking Yeahh!! Br00tal death Metallers hit the studio..!! Great news and will really look forward for that.

Be interesting to see how it ends up comparing to the last couple of albums, Kill was fantastic but the last album just seemed like a slightly inferior version of the album before it.

CC is one of those bands that I think should just stick to what they do best, and that is being a straightforward, in-your-face death metal band with the complete absence of bullshit. As I've said before, they're the AC/DC of death metal, there is no point in getting rid of the formula they've used since their inception if the music they're making is still great, which it is. And earlier this year we all learned what could happen if a legendary death metal band tries to reinvent themselves...

Anywho, I'm looking forward to this release, because I already know what I'm in for, and that's kickass death metal tunes!

I wonder if they're capable of writing something that isn't mid-paced generic death metal nowadays.

This whole GENERIC term is starting to get on my nerves. All bands are generic because they belong to a particular GENRE. Personally i can't wait to hear the new generic masterpiece.

Ya um, has anyone paid attention to the evolution in their albums? The technicality of their material? They are pioneers of death metal, their imitaters are the generic. Wtf is the definition of innovative death metal: Fleshgod? The new Morbid Angel?!? Fuckin please. This is death metal: Detuned. No Keyboards. No Synth. No clean vocal. Don't like it? Try another genre.

Generic Nowadays? IMO it has always been so for the corpse (even the bands "classics"). Most likely will be nothing different with this new record, It will probably please the fans though.

As long as it's better than Eviseration Plague. I didn't feel that album
Septicfish - 07.09.2011 at 03:40  
Regardless of what others say, CC will always be here to play. I'm quite pleased they have not disbanded, and I'm looking forward to album No.12
Lonniehaskel - 07.09.2011 at 04:31  
Either way, they haven't written anything exciting in years. I should probably have replaced "generic" with "fade-into-the-background bland". But this is just my opinion as a decade-long fan.

Agreed. Aside from "Priests Of Sodom", "Scalding Hail", and "Carnivorous Swarm", it was a very unmemorable album for me. It was such a disappointment after "KILL", which was such an awesome album. I definitely hope the new one will be quite a bit better than "Evisceration Plague"....

Yaaay, more ultra-generic death metal!
We definitely don't have enough of that nowadays.

Totally agree. Anyone who thinks they are "generic" and that there hasn't been any musical evolution on their albums really are in need of their ears syringed! It's the same as idiots saying "all Slayer songs sound the same". I've always shook my head at stupid comments like that.

Since when is musical evolution the same as not being generic? Cannibal Corpse has always sounded generic to me. Some great songs indeed and I won't deny that there are difference in their albums, but still.. generic.

Ulcerate.
Also bands like Owls, Mitochondrion and even Portal or Impetuous Ritual are trying to bring a little more to the genre that is having some hard times atm... Same can't be said about Cannibal Corpse.

You may find highly technical, intricate riffs "generic", but I for one certainly do not...

When you find tons of metal bands doing the same thing I sure as hell do. Extra points for funny lyrics and artwork but that's about it.
You didn't seem to get the point though. Even if you don't find them generic you can't just go by the logic "Musical evolution = not being generic".

Well, if the criteria for not being generic is being truly unique, then I'd say maybe 2%-3% of bands in all metal genres aren't generic. In which case, the barrage of criticsm Cannibal Corpse recieve for being "generic", is a bit lopsided, and unfair. As many other bands who are equally as generic, and even more so, are not criticised so heavily for that. I'd say Cannibal Corpse's standing as possibly the most popular death metal band is actually behind most of the bashing, although obviously most would never openly admit to doing that... lol

Ha! Damn right you are!... There are hardly any original bands anymore, there are plenty of good bands but really doing their own thing? No.
So yeah, 2-3% seems pretty right to me

Hehe, yeah well... the more time goes on, the harder and harder it becomes for a band to be truly unique genre wise, as it's just about all been done before. And yep, you don't have to be original to be a great band, or to make good music. To me, good music is good music, whether it's original or not. lol

I won't argue with that of course.. I just argue when people call such bands non-generic because I'm very anal with words you know?

In this case I say it just because I feel that Cannibal Corpse have done everything they could have done.
