When Cannibal Corpse arrived to the Heavy Metal spectrum, they immediately stomped the ground with lots of might and eventually changed Heavy Metal music forever by helping to pioneer Death Metal as we know it! The band was formed in 1988 in Buffalo, New York, and within a year of their very first gig they signed a record deal with Metal Blade Records and subsequently released their debut album Eaten Back to Life. Ever since then, the band has been one of the most hard working bands in the world and without having a "commercial" sound, they have managed to gather a significant worldwide audience thanks to their extreme musical vision along with their willingness to continue to evolve.

Once again, the Kings of Death Metal delivered their trademark punishing sound on their thirteenth studio album A Skeletal Domain (available now via Metal Blade Records). From the moment the title track is ignited, there is no doubt that the band has once again pushed their musical envelope to the limit.

On A Skeletal Domain, the band recruited Mark Lewis from Audiohammer Studios to sit behind the board and produce yet another masterpiece. It seems like Lewis and his colleagues at AH are quickly becoming the go to go guys for the most extreme bands in the world. If you listen to the drums you will definitely notice that the drums on the NEW CC record sound heavier and ballsier than ever before! This was mainly due to the fact that Lewis forced drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz to use much bigger drum sticks than the ones he is used to playing with.

Our only beef with the bands follow up to 2012's Torture, is that the record is a bit short (clocking in at 43:52). In our humble opinion, the record could have included one or two more tracks without losing power. Yes, the record flows very smoothly and punishes ear drums relentlessly, but A Skeletal Domain keeps the listener wanting more and more. But then again, Cannibal Corpse tend to do that lately so that their rabid fans keep wanting more and more.

While trends come and go, Cannibal Corpse keep giving their collective middle fingers to musical acts that will remain unnamed but that will only be around momentarily. The upstate New Yorkers on the other hand, have plenty of musical fuel to burn for years to come.

What we've always liked about Cannibal Corpse is their ability to expand their musical style, without losing sight of their ultimate goal. They also possess a "signature sound", which is harder and harder to find these days. Get A Skeletal Domain HERE!
