Cannibal Corpse Premiere “Code Of The Slashers” Music Video

Cannibal Corpse have premiered a new video for their new song “Code Of The Slashers.” This song is from the band’s new album, “Red Before Black,“ which will be released on November 3.

The video was directed by Zev Deans, who had the following to say:

“After crawling through abandoned buildings, crashing our van into a tree in the middle of a scene, witnessing a real stabbing and drenching ourselves in fake blood in a derelict park at 5am, we can safely say this was a proper introduction to the slasher genre for Panorama Programming. We brought a slab of fresh meat back from a rotting metropolis, and we’re serving it to you raw. Come and get it.”

Bassist Alex Webster added the following about the album:

“Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently.”

Extinct Worm Named After Cannibal Corpse Bassist Alex Webster

A new study conducted by Mats E. Eriksson of Lund University, Sweden, Luke A. Parry of Bristol University, U.K., and David M. Rudkin of Royal Ontario Museum, Canada has been published on Scientific Reports, and it contains findings of an extinct worm, whose name has a very metal origin. It is a new genus of extinct polychaetes (bristle worms) and it goes by the name “Websteroprion Armstrongi” after Cannibal Corpse’s Alex Webster.


Here’s an explanation for their name choice:

“Named after Alex Webster – a ‘giant’ of a bass player – combined with ‘prion’ meaning saw.”

Webster commented as well:

“Thank you to Mats Eriksson, Luke Parry, & all involved, I’m honored! Congratulations on your discovery!”

Webster also posted a new video for a song from his Blotted Science project, because as he said, it “seems appropriate to share this today:”
