CANNIBAL CORPSE Announce Australian Tour This Fall; Summer Slaughter Headlining Dates Revealed

After three long torturous years, death metal titans, CANNIBAL CORPSE, return to Australia for a sarcophagic frenzy of sordid and demented proportions! Set to commence on October 4, the band will ravage five cities – Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth – in support of their latest and ceaselessly hostile full-length, Torture.

Released through Metal Blade Records earlier this Spring, Torture proves that when it comes to combining unrestrained maliciousness, involved song writing and technical precision, there is no equal. On the twelfth full-length of their inspiring twenty-four year career, the Floridian quintet have never sounded so vital, the album building upon the wealth of powerful, dark, and memorable songs comprising 2006’s Kill and 2009’s Evisceration Plague and pointedly upping the ante at every turn. CANNIBAL CORPSE are the pinnacle of death metal and the sledgehammer force of the forthcoming live cannibalism will yet again prove this beyond any doubt.

“As always, the band’s musicianship is downright inspiring. And their songwriting has never been better.” – Decibel

“…totally killer from start to finish.” – Popdose

professional, precise and ruthless.” – Ultimate-Guitar

“…the sonic equivalent of having your face rearranged by a claw hammer.” –

“No matter the methods employed or the musical vibes involved, the one aspect of Torture that is most obvious is the height of the pile of bodies left in its bloody wake. Similar acts may boast higher body counts on their albums, but few achieve their murderous results with as much skill, creativity, and (wait for it) fun as CANNIBAL CORPSE. – Blabbermouth

“This album fucking destroys….” – Hellbound

With their 12th album, Torture, the Florida (by way of Buffalo, NY) band don’t disappoint, as the record delivers an onslaught of the crushing, intense brutality expected from them, with no filler whatsoever.” – Exclaim

“…an absolute monster from start to finish,” – Blistering

“… the best album since Vile.” – Metal Underground
