Background: The band started to write the album in 2016 after the last run of touring for their previous album A Skeletal Domain. However, the idea of utilizing some slower doom elements was discussed beforehand
When Cannibal Corpse emerged in the late '80s, their music was some of the most extreme and brutal many people had ever heard, and they were pioneers in the death metal genre. Their graphic album covers and gory lyrics raised a lot of eyebrows and even got them in some legal difficulties in certain countries. Bands have come along even more brutal and gorier than Cannibal Corpse, but nearly 30 years later they remain a staple of the genre. The seemingly ageless band's latest effort is Red Before Black, their 14th studio album. After working with producer Erik Rutan on some earlier releases, Cannibal Corpse brought him back for Red Before Black. Being an outstanding death metal musician in his own right, Rutan knows exactly what Cannibal Corpse bring to the table. He captures the rawness and power of their sound while keeping the crisp and focused feel of their playing.
