CORPSEGRINDER + ADAM D. + SHANNON LUCAS SUPERGROUP IS A REALLY REAL THING
If that combo makes you scratch your head and go “zuh?” then you certainly wouldn’t be the only one, but there you have it: three of the most vocal personalities from Cannibal Corpse, Killswitch Engage and The Black Dahlia Murder are apparently teaming up for a new project.
The news comes straight from Corpsegrinder’s mouth, as told to the Metal Injection dudes aboard the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise ship last week. Axl originally reported on a rumor about this merry group of metalmen back in August of 2011, but according to an article published by Rob Pasbani on Metal Injection yesterday it’s “DEFINITELY” (emphasis his!) happening. Here’s the juice:
We spoke with Corpsegrinder last week during our coverage of the 70,000 Tons of Metal, and even though the cameras stopped rolling, Corpsegrinder was still in a chatting mood. I just so happened to be wearing a Black Dahlia Murder shirt, and Corpsegrinder noticed it and confirmed to us that he is DEFINITELY working on a project with the Black Dahlia drummer, and Adam D. and it’s sounding killer.
He let us know that Adam D already has eight songs written. There are parts that definitely sound like Killswitch and then there are some very down-tuned riffs. When I asked what sort of vocals we could expect, Corpsegrinder pointed to his other side-project, Paths of Possession where he growls highs and lows.
So that could be interesting, no? Corpsegrinder didn’t reveal a timetable for the release, but said the album will most likely come out on Metal Blade (Cannibal Corpse’s label) when it finally does happen. 2012 is yet young, so maybe we’ll even hear new music from CorpseKillMurder this year.
