NEILSTEIN SOUNDSCAM: A TORTUROUS DEBUT
Cannibal Corpse’s new album Torture made a big splash in its’ debut week, while new records by Adrenaline Mob, Soulfly, Epica and Impending Doom also hit the Top 10 of the “Current Hard Music” chart. Those numbers and more after the jump:

The death metal titans are still going strong! Amazing for them to enjoy this kind of popularity at this point in their career.

Did you guys catch the bit about how an instrumental version of the last track from this album accidentally ended up on the disc instead of the version with vocals? Kinda hilarious. But it does make it cool for anyone who got this original pressing; potential collectors’ item someday. I guess misprints are going to be a thing of the past when physical media is phased out… weird.
