2013 marks death metal juggernauts, Cannibal Corpse‘s 25th year as a band, and they’ll be celebrating it all year long – probably with some combination of cum and blood. The first omen of the year-long blood-fest is that band’s logo has been updated to reflect the monumental occasion and will be used on all things Cannibal, from merch to packaging, throughout 2013. The second omen is a box set that’s in the works for the most extreme Cannibal Corpse fan. The box set is expected to drop in March – details coming soon.
The third, and perhaps the most brutal of all, Metal Blade Records will be releasing one picture disc a month from the band’s expansive catalog (Eaten Back to Life, Butchered at Birth, Tomb of the Mutilated, The Bleeding, Vile, Gallery of Suicide, Bloodthirst, Gore Obsessed, The Wretched Spawn, KILL, Evisceration Plague, Torture). A total of 12 pictures discs will be released, covering all of the band’s full-length studio albums, some of which have never been released on picture disc. The first picture disc available for preorder is Eaten Back to Life, which was released August 17, 1990, and can be found at www.metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse.
Stay tuned for news on a full North American headline tour featuring one of the best death metal lineups a fan could ever ask for.
