No band will ever be as synonymous with death metal as Cannibal Corpse. The Florida-cum-Buffalo band have for years been pushing the envelope both musically and lyrically, making the kind of metal that bends minds while frontman George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher tirelessly roars about those same minds being scooped out by zombies and eaten in the streets. Now, Cannibal Corpse have confirmed the title of their upcoming new album and have debuted the first single, officially solidifying 2021 as a kickass year.

Cannibal Corpse’s new album will be called Violence Unimagined, with the first single titled “Inhumane Harvest.” The band posted to their Instagram writing, “Our new single #InhumaneHarvest is debuting NOW on @sxmliquidmetal! Taken from our upcoming record, #ViolenceUnimagined! More details coming your way tomorrow…”

While “Inhumane Harvest” was debuted via SiriusXM, NextMosh have posted a YouTube link to the track, and God DAMN is it awesome. Though a little slower than the early singles from the band’s blistering 2017 effort Red Before Black, the song still uses that patented pendulum-swing rhythm which has always made Cannibal Corpse sound like they might kick a hole through your sternum. More so, the track has in it a genuine anger, a feeling of overwhelming rage which so many other bands touch on but which this one perfectly embodies. All of which is to say, this track absolutely rips, and Cannibal Corpse continue to be the motherfucking masters of their craft.

Cannibal Corpse’s Violence Unimagined will come out later this year via Metal Blade Records, with preorders apparently starting soon. More on this album as information is released tomorrow, but if the other songs on it are anything like this track, then we are stoked, son.
