They’ve never pushed the boundaries of the sound by any margin, only flexing their technical skills when needed and only if the song required them to do so. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” certainty applies to the New York act, and their 14th studio album Red Before Black continues in the same vein.
This consistency should be applauded, because Cannibal have always focused on releasing solid albums that fans will enjoy. Red Before Black won’t let anyone down.
Red Before Black is out November 3 via Metal Blade/Rocket.
