Erik Rutan To Fill In For Cannibal Corpse Guitarist Pat O’Brien

Cannibal Corpse have announced that Erik Rutan will fill in for guitarist Pat O’Brien as O’Brien tends to personal issues. Rutan will appear live with the band for the Decibel Magazine Tour and the upcoming US leg of Slayer’s final tour happening this May alongside Slayer, Lamb of God, and Amon Amarth. This won’t be the first time these death metal powerhouses have worked together; Rutan has produced four albums with Cannibal Corpse (“Kill,” “Evisceration Plague,” “Torture,” “Red Before Black”) and is uniquely equipped to fill the role – he is one of the death metal’s most acclaimed guitarists and is known for his time as part of Morbid Angel (who are co headlining the Decibel tour alongside Cannibal) throughout the 90s and early 2000s, as well as handling vocals/guitars and production duties for his current band Hate Eternal.

Rutan will be appearing with the band on the following tour dates:

Cannibal Corpse will be on the tour from the start up to March 7, where they’ll be replaced by Immolation for the remainder of the trek. Morbid Angel, Necrot and Blood Incantation will participate in the whole tour.
