Cannibal Corpse guitarist Erik Rutan has shared a playthrough of the band’s new song “Condemnation Contagion.“ That track is from the group’s new album “Violence Unimagined,” which will be released on April 16.
Rutan told Guitar World the following:
“This was the last song I completed writing for our new album Violence Unimagined. I was writing it as COVID-19 was becoming a full-on pandemic. Heavy and dark in its origins, it came out to be a song like nothing I have ever written before.
Since the song has a lot of two guitar-part harmonies and counterpoint, for this video I chose to feature the parts that stick out to me the most during the song at specific moments. A majority of the song is ferociously down-picked interweaving with other subtle elements. The solo is one of my personal favorites on the album. It has a nice feel and flow to it.”
