Produced by Hate Eternalâ€™s Erik Rutan, Torture is an undeniable creation of pile-driving brilliance and another testament to the bandâ€™s lifelong dedication to the death metal genre. In a 9/10 review of the record, Decibel Magazine proclaimed:Â â€œAs always, the bandâ€™s musicianship is downright inspiring. And their songwriting has never been better.â€ Hellbound offered up the same rating stating bluntly: â€œThis album fucking destroys and I wouldnâ€™t have expected or accepted anything lessâ€¦.â€ Blistering crowned the record â€œan absolute monster from start to finish,â€ while Metal Underground proclaimed Torture, â€œâ€¦ the best album since Vile.â€ Zero Tolerance calling it a work of: â€œpure death metal mastery from one of the best bands the genre has ever produced,â€ and Pure Grain Audio hailed: â€œTorture is a straight-to-the-point death metal fest that proves that the 24 year-old CANNIBAL CORPSE still has a lot in store and an exciting future ahead of them. Let the musical evisceration happily continueâ€¦â€
The bandâ€™s twelfth full-length will be available to North American fans on March 13, 2012 via Metal Blade Records.
CANNIBAL CORPSEâ€™s official U.S. headlining tour will commence this April.
