Interview: Alex Webster of Cannibal Corpse part 2

Alex : Most likely not. We have no plans to tour in 2011. We are currently home inthe Tampa Bay area writing our next album, we’ll record it in September so that will leave us with an early 2012 release. So, we’ll probably wait to tour until the album is released.

Rocksins : You have a new DVD coming out in February called Global Evisceration; can you tell us a bit about that?

Alex : The DVD was filmed in several different countries that we visited on the Evisceration Plague World Tour. It has lots of concert footage as well as behind the scenes footage. Denise Korycki, the filmmaker behind our “Centuries of Torment” DVD also made this one, and once again we feel she has done an excellent job.

Rocksins : The last two Cannibal Corpse albums have been a lot less graphic in terms of the album art, has this been a conscious decision or something that hasnaturally happened?

Alex : A little of both I guess. We prefer darker and more ominous covers these days as opposed to the bright, graphically violent splatter themes of our older covers. It seems to fit the music we’re currently making a bit better. Also, having a less graphic cover helps to ensure it will be available in record stores. These days many record stores are out of business, so if we can’t get our album into the few that remain there would be little point in releasing a physical product. The way around this problem that works out best for us and our fans is to have two pieces of art for the album. A darker, less graphic cover and then something more violent and graphic inside. The censors seem to ignore the interior artwork so the problem of being banned from record stores is avoided. Also, our fans seem to enjoy getting two pieces of art instead of just one.
