If you somehow needed to be convinced that Erik Rutan can shred, look no further than his playthrough of the new Cannibal Corpse single "Condemnation Contagion" off their coming album Violence Unimagined. While a version with vocals has yet to be released, you can get a pretty good idea how heavy this song is (and how friggin' good Rutan is).
Violence Unimagined is Cannibal Corpse's first new album with guitarist Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, ex-Morbid Angel). Rutan produced the past four Cannibal Corpse records and has been filling in for guitarist Pat O'Brien live, so it's not a huge leap to see why they chose him. O'Brien is currently facing charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling with assault and aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer.
