Cannibal Corpse are one of the best death metal bands ever. There’s no denying that, and in celebration of their 25th anniversary, they’re releasing limited edition commemorative merch! This is actually really awesome. I know Tentaclesworth wants the calendar (available here in the misc. section), and I know plenty of people who’d love that picture disc. Not to mention the fact that they’re going to do another headlining tour. Honestly with so many of these bands celebrating anniversaries soon, I can already tell it’s going to take a ton of willpower not to spend every last cent I have. Hey, college ain’t cheap! So be on the lookout for other bands celebrating anniversaries or milestones in their careers!
