Black Cannibal Corpse Engage
2013-04-07 by Trey Spencer STAFF | 56 Comments

Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz has confirmed to Decibel Magazine that there is a project in work that features The Black Dahlia Murder drummer Shannon Lucas and Cannibal Corpse vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher:

"It was supposed to be a big hush-hush, but I think people are starting to catch wind of it," Adam said.

"When [Killswitch Engage] toured with Cannibal Corpse and Black Dahlia on the [Rockstar Energy Drink] Mayhem [Festival], I was just hanging out with George one night, and I was like, 'Dude, if I wrote you a bunch of songs to sing over, would you do it?' And he was like, 'Fuck yeah, man!' So, I've written about eight songs. I've played them for George and Shannon, and they're both down. So, we're just looking for a time get into the studio."

Asked if this was material he had sitting around that he thought George would be good for, or if these were songs that were written specifically for George to sing, Adam said: "They were written specifically for him. He's one of my favorite singers of all time, and I thought there wouldn't be any harm in at least asking him. Once he said yes, it was like, 'Alright — let's go!'"

Regarding the musical direction of the new project, Adam said: "It's not straight death metal — there's some melodic elements in there — but it's much faster and more aggressive than KILLSWITCH is. And the drums are blazing, so Shannon is probably one of the only guys on the face of the earth who could pull this off."

Yeah I thought this was going to be a cover band or something where all the members were African American.

Will check it because I love Shannan Lucas and Corpsegrinder is a cool guy.

I'll check it out because Shannon is a beast of a drummer when he wants to be, the rest I'm not sure about. I do usually like Adam D's material, but I am in not even close to a CC fan.

The only thing that turned me off about this was "And the drums are blazing, so Shannon is probably one of the only guys on the face of the earth who could pull this off."

Besides George, I agree. Sounds like shit, especially considering the last Killswitch and BDM albums were abysmal piles of poo.

I thought that the former vocalist for Killswitch (who is black) would now be the vocalist for CC, hence "Black Cannibal Corpse Engage"

yeah, that's a pretty misleading article title. This doesn't interest me that much though. I respect adam d as a producer and such but I couldn't care less about Fisher or Lucas, so I'll probs give this a miss

Curse.

Shannon Lucas is a fantastic drummer, I don't know why people are slagging him

Why do people feel the need to say "African-American" in place of "black", as if all black people are African-American? Makes no sense.

Yeah for all their respective genres they are some of the best out there. I mean Adam went to Berkley (knows his shit way more than any asshole here), Shannon did play fast Death metal in TBDM, and George is in CC need you even justify that.
