It has been since 2014 that Richmond, Virginia’s Cannabis Corpse released From Wisdom to Baked. Songs like “Baptized in Bud,” “Weedless Ones,” and “With Their Hash He Will Create,” along with their band name, let you know right off the bat what their drug of choice is. The parody act, which includes members of Municipal Waste and Six Feet Under, has released marijuana-based tunes since 2006’s Blunted at Birth. Now, the stoned-death metallers’ new album, Left Hand Pass will arrive on September 8th via Season of Mist.
Frontman Philip “Landphil” Hall comments:
“At long last Cannabis Corpse has come out of its weed induced slumber to bring all y’all head bangers out there a new slab of brutal death metal. This time around we decided to give our new guitarist Ray Suhy a lot more room to add his own unique flavor to the songwriting and riffs. We think what has came out is a fresh sound for Cannabis Corpse.”
To group premiered the first single, “Chronic Breed.” Guitarist Ray Suhy described the song as:
“‘Chronic Breed’ was one of the last songs we wrote for Left Hand Pass. We rewrote this one a couple of times before we got it to flow the way we wanted it. Hallhammer laid down some killer drum parts and Landphil’s vocals are some of my favorite that he’s ever done. There’s lots of catchy and brutal moments on this record and ‘Chronic Breed’ is one of my favorites!”
