A complete and total black death annihilation is set to take place at Strange Matter in late April!! RVA's bud-smoking, skull-crushing OSDM kings CANNABIS CORPSE makes their headlining return with a stacked gig of regional up-and-comers. Direct support will be the mighty SALVATICUS who've risen from the ashes with their new album and last with our unholy brethren Luke (RIP). Making their Smatter debut of a pair of killer death-purveyors, DC's PERPETUATED and Raleigh's ELDRITCH HORROR, completing this incredible lineup and cementing your Saturday night heavy metal plans!

CANNABIS CORPSE: Turning a classic album title such as Entombed's 'Left Hand Path' into a weedy phrase would normally be punishable by having to listen to the worst of modern history on continued play. Yet CANNABIS CORPSE not only get away with it, but the death metal and pot aficionados are actually doing exactly what their massive following is happily demanding of the Americans.

CANNABIS CORPSE were conceived out of a passionate love for Floridian death metal shared by Municipal Waste bassist / vocalist Phil "LandPhil" Hall and drummer Josh "Hallhammer" Hall, who created the band in 2006 in Richmond, Virginia.

Sharing a penchant for marijuana, the brothers decided from the start to leave the stereotypical genre subjects of gore, splatter, and horror behind and infuse a green sense of humour into their lyrics. Meanwhile it has become a badge of honour for many of the Halls? idols to have one of their titles turned into a tongue-in-cheek parody. And while there can be no doubt about what inspired a verbal monster such as "Papyrus Containing the Spell to Protect Its Possessor Against Attacks from He Who Is in the Bong Water", the track-list of 'Left Hand Pass' may be read as a death metal quiz for sorts.

CANNABIS CORPSE immediately hit a nerve with their debut 'Blunted at Birth' (2006), while the following full-length 'Tube of the Resinated' (2008) and the EP 'The Weeding' (2009) demonstrated that the band was a musical match to those that they paid obviously tribute to the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Deicide, and Obituary. With 'Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise' (2011), the Americans set another benchmark of keeping the old school spirit alive. Before the release of fourth acclaimed album, 'From Wisdom to Baked' (2014), the spliff lovers' complete catalogue was re-issued on Season of Mist.

Now CANNABIS CORPSE are doing once again what they are best at and hammer out a perfect death metal album that combines straight-to-the-point songwriting with technical prowess. Time to fly high again with 'Left Hand Pass'!
