In 1972, David Seville, (real name: Ross Bagdasarian) who provided the voices of TV cartoon characters the Chipmunks, died just days short of his 53rd birthday.

In 1992, Eric Clapton recorded his unplugged session, that included an acoustic version of "Layla," for MTV.


some lovely picture discs coming!

2013: Cannibal Corpse Celebrates 25 Years Of Brutal Death Metal!

Special Anniversary Logo, Picture Disc a Month, and North American Headline Tour to be Announced Shortly!

2013 marks death metal juggernauts, CANNIBAL CORPSE’S 25th year as a band and CANNIBAL is going to celebrate it all year long! The logo has been updated to reflect the monumental occasion and will be used on all things CANNIBAL, from merch to packaging, throughout 2013. There is also a box set in the works for the most extreme CANNIBAL CORPSE fan, which is expected to drop in March – details coming soon!

In addition to the updated logo only being used this year and the box set, Metal Blade Records will be releasing one picture disc a month from the band’s expansive catalog (Eaten Back to Life, Butchered at Birth, Tomb of the Mutilated, The Bleeding, Vile, Gallery of Suicide, Bloodthirst, Gore Obsessed, The Wretched Spawn, KILL, Evisceration Plague, Torture). A total of 12 pictures discs will be released, covering all of the band’s full-length studio albums, some of which have never been released on picture disc. The first picture disc available for preorder is Eaten Back to Life, which was released August 17, 1990, and can be found HERE. Check back each month to get a glimpse of the next picture disc available for preorder.

Stay tuned to and for news on a full North American headline tour featuring one of the best death metal lineups a fan could ever ask for.

CANNIBAL CORPSE’S latest release, Torture, landed the band at #38 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart upon its first week of release, making it the highest debut in CANNIBAL CORPSE history! Torture landed at #7 on the Billboard Top Independent Album Chart, #4 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart and #32 Billboard Top Current Albums Chart. Produced by Hate Eternal’s Erik Rutan, Torture continues to reap critical accolades from critics and fans around the globe and is yet another testament to CANNIBAL CORPSE‘s permanent allegiance to shrewdly arranged, pile-driving death metal madness.
