Richmond, VA’s CANNABIS CORPSE have risen from the embers once again, and this time, no one is safe. The bong-huffing death metal menace have completed work on their brand-new full-length record, entitled Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shall Rise.
The album will see a July 12, 2011 release from the mighty TANKCRIMES, who also unleashed the band’s much-loved The Weeding EP back in 2009. In addition, CANNABIS CORPSE have several live actions in the works; the band features various members of MUNICIPAL WASTE, PARASYTIC, BATTLEMASTER, and VOLTURE, so you know these dudes can throw down live!
On this record, CANNABIS CORPSE have ventured even further down the left-hand path to pay homage to those other masters of death, MORBID ANGEL and DEICIDE. Tongue-in-cotton-mouthed-cheek titles like “Lunatic of Pot’s Creation” and “Immortal Pipes” keep the party rolling, but don’t be fooled: CANNABIS CORPSE are not a joke band. Sure, they’ll fire up a bowl and chug a beer, but then they’ll rip your face off with a brutal old-school death metal assault, the likes of which haven’t been seen since the seeds of the genre first began to grow.
Mixed by Erik Rutan at Mana Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West Side Music, Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shall Rise was recorded by the band’s own Phil “Landphil” Hall, and reeks of DIY putrefaction.
Happy 4/20 – the time to smoke is now!
