Stoner death metal icons CANNABIS CORPSE are now announcing the worldwide reissue of their 2009 EP, ‘The Weeding!’ This cult recording of thick, groove-laden death set the stage for the world-class pummeling of the ensuing three full-length albums (‘From Wisdom To Baked,’ ‘Left Hand Pass’ and ‘Nug So Vile’). ‘The Weeding’ is available again on limited digipak CD, and a strictly limited (500 copies) white vinyl 12″ with unique UV print and gold-foil stamped jacket.
‘The Weeding’ is appropriately due on April 22 as a belated gift to their fellow stoners for 4/20!
CANNABIS CORPSE’s latest strain of weed-metal is another potent dose of bong ripping brutality laced with tasty riffs, vicious drumming, and powerful THC. With a title inspired by CRYPTOPSY’s seminal album, ‘Nug So Vile’ is a horrifying look into the mind of a hardcore marijuana abuser with the demented fantasies of a reefer addict fully on display. The record is more than just a mere follow up to 2017’s ‘Left Hand Pass’, but rather serves as a solid companion piece, seamlessly picking up right where the band left off.
Sharing a passion for marijuana and death metal, brothers Phil ‘Landphil’ Hall (MUNICIPAL WASTE, IRON REAGAN) and Josh ‘Hallhammer’ Hall formed CANNABIS CORPSE in 2006 in Richmond, VA as a loving homage to the genre’s forefathers. The brothers decided from the start to separate themselves from the pack by infusing a green sense of humour into their horror-inspired lyrics. Meanwhile, it has become a badge of honour for many of the Halls’ idols to have one of their titles parodied by the Richmond outfit.
Now, CANNABIS CORPSE has returned as a three-piece and despite slimming the line-up down since ‘Left Hand Pass’, ‘Nug So Vile’ still sounds as full and thick as ever, solidifying their place among death metal’s elite. So, roll a blunt, grab a neckbrace, and prepare yourself for another nasty assault from the kings of weed metal.
