Cannibal Corpse released their latest album, Red Before Black, last fall. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black once more raises the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Sacred Reich return to Metal Blade Records!

– January 24th, 2018 –

Thrash metal legends Sacred Reich have signed with Metal Blade Records! They are currently writing material for what will be their sixth album and first since 1996′s Heal. Since their 1985 inception, the band has become one of the most revered 80s thrash bands and have continued to carry the torch with European tours, festival appearances, their first US tour in over 20 years, plus their 2012 Live at Wacken album. Given Sacred Reich‘s politically conscious material, today’s divisive climate means the band’s views are more relevant and vital than ever.

Sacred Reich vocalist and bassist Phil Rind comments:
We are very happy to announce that SACRED REICH have signed with Metal Blade Records and we are writing songs for a new album. Our plan is to go into the studio this summer and have a new record out early next year. We are super excited and can’t wait to share some new music with you!
