Cannibal Corpse Announces New Album 'A Skeletal Domain' And New Song "Sadistic Embodiment"

Death metal band, Cannibal Corpse, announced recently details about their new album A Skeletal Domain via their Facebook page. The new album is set to release on September 16, 2014 and can be pre-ordered here. In conjunction with this announcement, they released a new song from the album titled "Sadistic Embodiment." Which you can listen to below!

Here is the official announcement from the band,

"CANNIBAL CORPSE: American Death Metal Icons To
Release A Skeletal Domain; New Song And Pre-order Packages Now
Available + Band To Kick Off Summer Tour As Part Of The Rockstar Energy
Drink Mayhem Festival

American Death Metal Icons, CANNIBAL CORPSE, are pleased to announce the release of their thirteenth full-length, entitled, A Skeletal Domain.

Lucky number thirteen? Lucky or not, it's a quantity of releases (not
even counting VHS/DVD releases and EPs) and a wealth of material beyond
which most bands could even fathom. The CANNIBAL CORPSE collective –
vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, bassist Alex Webster, guitarists
Pat O'Brien and Rob Barrett and drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz -- approaches
each recording session with a honed and precise vision of a band in
their third decade of existence. With this new entry to their extensive
catalog, they've switched gears, opting to work with producer Mark Lewis
(The Black Dahlia Murder, DevilDriver) at Audio Hammer Studios, after
having tracked their previous three outings (Kill, Evisceration Plague,
Torture) with Erik Rutan. Boasting twelve-ominous tracks in forty-four
spine-fraying minutes, the result is a massive, belligerent, and
deliberate aural attack that finds the band at their peak of their
notoriously hyper kinetic, meticulously executed brutality.

Preparation for A Skeletal Domain did not vary significantly from
previous efforts. "At the end of the day, we're still making a death
metal record, no matter where it's being recorded," relays bassist Alex
Webster. Mark Lewis offered a slightly different, modern recording
approach, but the band stressed that they could not be more pleased with
their previous albums with Rutan, and the door is most definitely open
to work with him again in the future. Changing producers is something
the band has historically done after every few albums, if only to not
get too comfortable. CANNIBAL CORPSE also tried to step outside of their
comfort zone when it came to songwriting and their musical
performances. "Consistency is often confused with repetition. We are
established with what we do as a band, and we could relax and not push
ourselves, but we try to push the envelope. That's what makes this
exciting," adds Webster. "Anyone who really listens to this album with
an open mind will hear that it's not same-old same-old." Mark Lewis
would concur with Webster's analysis and even goes a step further by
claiming that "there are moments on this record that have never happened
in musical history." CANNIBAL CORPSE have proven time and again that
they have more fuel in their tank, more riffs in their minds, and more
ways to describe gore than any single group of human beings could ever
have hoped. The thirteenth album will prove to be as important a
landmark in their career as just about any other. CANNIBAL CORPSE are
consistency defined.

A Skeletal Domain will be released in
North America on September 16th, 2014 via Metal Blade records. Point
