When it comes to death metal bassists, Alex Webster from CANNIBAL CORPSE is certainly a stand-out presence. Anyone who has ever been to as CANNIBAL CORPSE show knows that stance, that “pick-free” gallop and that flying mane that have become the founding member’s signature.
The iconic “bassist of brutality” himself recently sat down with Loaded Radio’s Scott Penfold to discuss the band’s upcoming fifteenth studio album, ‘Violence Unimagined’, which is set to arrive in all of it’s gory glory on April 16, 2021. The effort marks the first CANNIBAL CORPSE album in nearly four years since the release of 2017’s raging ‘Red Before Black’, the longest ever period between records for the band. The release is also the first studio album to feature producer Erik Rutan on lead guitar, who replaced Pat O’Brien in February 2021 after nearly two years of filling in for him on the road.
Aside from in-depth discussion of ‘Violence Unimagined’, Alex also talks about relationships with past and current members of the band, stand out moments from the outfit’s early days, being named after a giant worm with saw-like jaws and tons more.
So sit back, relax, fire up the chainsaw and press play below for 25 minutes with CANNIBAL CORPSE bassist Alex Webster.
