Today, Revolvermag.com hosts the exclusive premiere of “Scourge of Iron,” the third track off CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s forthcoming slab of brutality, Torture, slated for North American release through Metal Blade Records on March 13, 2012.
Comments bassist Alex Webster of the new tune: “‘Scourge of Iron’ helps to show the song writing diversity on Torture. [First album single] ‘Demented Aggression’ is blazing fast and frantic, while ‘Scourge…’ is a down tempo, pounding song. They’re both death metal, but at opposite ends of the speed spectrum. Expect to hear this kind of variety throughout Torture. We’ve utilized many different tempos, rhythms, and feels in these songs with the goal of making an album that is varied and dynamic but also very brutal. On March 13th you’ll get to decide whether or not we succeeded.”
