Track Premiere: Cannibal Corpse, “Red Before Black”


We haven’t had a chance to dive into the lyrics of the title track from Cannibal Corpse’s new album Red Before Black yet, but we would like to imagine that Corpsegrinder and crew are suggesting that red, and not black, is the most brutal color of all. Cannibal Corpse know a thing or two about being brutal — this is the band that popularized death metal and once named an album Kill (all other bands should just stop trying; that is THE definitive death metal album title, QED) — so perhaps we should listen to them and just start wearing all red all the time instead of black. Black is so boring anyway!

MetalSucks is pleased to premiere “Red Before Black” to the world today. Check it out below, and listen to the previously released “Code of the Slashers” while you’re at it.

In case you missed it: check out these recently unearthed photos of Cannibal Corpse on the set of Ace Ventura with Jim Carrey back in the day.

Red Before Black will be out November 3 on Metal Blade, and can be pre-ordered here. Cannibal Corpse go on tour with Power Trip and Gatecreeper the very same day this album comes out! Get dates here.
