Paul Mazurkiewicz, George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, and Rob Barrett of legendary death metal act CANNIBAL CORPSE will be guests on this weekend's (Saturday, June 3) episode of "Headbanger's Ball". They will discuss Barrett's recent return to the band, their new album "Kill" and their spot on this summer's Sounds of the Underground tour.
"Headbanger's Ball" airs Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m. EST on MTV2.
Following their appearance on this year's Sounds of the Underground trek, CANNIBAL CORPSE plan to launch a U.S. headlining run — the kickoff will most likely take place in early November. The band's bassist, Alex Webster, told MTV.com next month the band will film a clip for "Death Walking Terror".
"Every one of our songs has some kind of violent or dark imagery in it, but we have to look for songs that are a little less graphic," he said. "We only have a couple of songs on each record where the lyrics aren't more or less R-rated for violence. We have to carefully choose what songs we do videos for, because otherwise it won't make it passed the censors. The song 'Murder Worship', I think all of us would have liked to have done a video for that. But there's no way, with the decapitated heads and all."
In late March, CANNIBAL CORPSE released "Kill", their 10th studio LP. The album debuted at No. 170 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling more than 6,000 copies in its first week. It was the second time in the band's career that one of its albums breached the mostly pop-friendly list; in 1996, "Vile" opened at No. 151, with more than 6,100 copies sold.
