    Hell of an album. Wow....
    Artwork is a bit simplistic but the sound is great

    After giving this a listen I’m convinced that Erik’s fingerprints are all over the writing here.

    Even the uncensored artwork? For me this artwork is a bit extreme lol


    Love the album. Rutan fits in well enough that I couldn't really hear much difference except the obvious Hate Eternal influence.

    I actually prefer the censored cover to the uncensored version. The ghoulish lady by herself is gnarly enough and in the censored version it comes across as just childish/something that one of my students would draw.

    Generally, CC album covers are hit or miss for me. I believe it’s been the same artist since the beginning. At least half the time, they come across as childish IMO, but a few of them worked. Red Before Black was terrible; just didn’t serve the album.

    Tomb of the Mutilated worked.
    Torture worked.
    The Wretched Spawn worked.

    Gore Obsessed looked ridiculous, and so on.

    The riffs are why I keep coming back though.:)

    Yeah, I only really love CC for the music. I got a t-shirt with my preorder, but I don't imagine wearing it for anything other than working out. As much as I love death metal, I don't really get into gore. Most of the band shirts I have are either just logos or from the sci-fi/fantasy end of the spectrum.

    They put out a new video. Song is great. Video is about as bloody as you would expect from CC.

    that tune fn slays. gore-wise - as far as I'm concerned it's so over the top and cartoonish to me it's basically comedy along the lines of the "Ash vs Evil Dead" series.

    The album is great, cc doing what cc does but better.

    On a side note, I feel I am in the minority here in when I say I liked skeletal domain- the first album of theirs i really got into. Anyone like this one?

    Kill or become is way catchier than it has any right to be.

    Agreed. I actually think the censored version looks pretty cool, whereas the uncensored one looks like something a teenager doodled next to their math homework :lol:

    I'd been listening to the album, and for some reason Spotify with my profile on it was on on our Android TV when me and my wife were gonna start watching TV the other night. She looked at the cover and said something like "yuck, what a disgusting looking cover". All I could say was "you should see the uncensored version" :lol:

    I lol'd. I've had similar conversations with my wife. We use our old phones as iPods for our daughters to play story readalouds to help them go to sleep. When my wife used my iTunes account to host the Disney princess stories and kid music, she noted the difference in album covers between those and the music I have on my account.:lol: "You've got some weird shit on your iPod, don't you?"

    Man, it's been a long time since someone has made a BC Rich sound that good. Crazy tight playing. Also, haven't liked a CC song in years. This slays.

    +1. I still can't believe how fast he can play with the string gauges he uses and how high the action is on his Ironbird. I know a lot of guitar players, especially with ultra low tunings, can play really well with really thick strings and high actions but it still confounds me.

    If you guys read the video credits, one of the additional crew members name is Kirk Patrick O'Brien. I actually thought that was Pat their former guitarist. But upon further research, Pat's (ex-guitarist) middle initial is Q. so there goes that.

    I'm tempted to say this is my favorite CC album. I need to listen to this and Tomb of the Mutilated back to back to decide. But holy crap this album rules.

    It’s way up there in their top 3 IMO. Kill is my favorite, but the more I listen to this, the more it’s pushing into that territory.

    It’s unbelievable that they are crushing it this hard 30 years into their career...

    I dare say this might have climbed to AOTY status.

    I haven't listened to CC in several years until now, but this new album is amazing! I've been playing it on repeat in my car and at work the past week.

    listened to this new records probably 5 times or more the song "Bound and Burned" sounds like parts of it were written by James Murphy!

    Anyhow, I'm really digging this record and when I saw them live with Rutan on tour with Morbid Angel it was outfuckinstanding!

    I was hoping to hold off buying the album until I got my tax return, but it's selling out everywhere! Ended up pulling the trigger, don't wanna wait until it's completely sold out and Discogs suddenly decides it's worth $100.

    It's Cannibal Corpse riffing with Rutan leads and harmonies. So, it's basically perfect.
