CANNIBAL CORPSE’S “PRIESTS OF SODOM”: ONE OF THE MOST AWESOME RIFFS OF 2009 GETS A VIDEO
Getting the latest album by a legendary band that you hold in very high regard is always kind of nerve-wracking, ’cause, y’know, what if it sucks? And getting last year’s Evisceration Plague was no different. Especially coming after Kill, which was one of the strongest releases of the band’s career, and probably my favorite album from the Corpsegrinder era up to that point.
But then that so-awesome-you-put-head-through-the-wall-like-Rutger Hauer-in-Blade Runner-riff from “Priests of Sodom” kicked in, and I knew everything was gonna be alright. And, in fact, Evisceration Plague ended up being better than Kill. It’s nice when things work out.
“Priests of Sodom” has a video now, which debuted on Bloody Disgusting. It’s pretty typical Cannibal Corpse stuff, but I don’t think anyone expects this band to release a video like the one for “November Rain” anytime soon.
And don’t forget, Cannibal Corpse kick-off the MetalSucks co-presented “Evisceration Plague” headlining trek on 4/20. 1349, Skeletonwitch, and Lecherous Nocturne are also on the bill, so you know it’s gonna be pure fucking madness. Get dates here.
