Cannibal Corpse, America’s premiere death metal band, is on the road again, playing songs from the group’s latest album, Red Before Black. The coming year marks 30 years of extreme metal, growling demon voices, and gore-splattered head banging for Cannibal Corpse. The sheer antagonistic presence the group brings to the stage transcends time, taste, and mortal fear. The experience culminates in a batch of songs that truly slay, while upholding the group’s imagery with titles such as “Code Of the Slashers,” “Heads Shoveled Off,” and “Hideous Ichor.” Embrace Cannibal Corpse’s menacing brutality tonight at the Masquerade.

With Power Trip, Gatecreeper, and Malformity. $25. 7 p.m. Masquerade. 75 MLK Jr. Drive S.W. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
