On May 20th, 2016 the classic Cannibal Corpse album Vile will turn 20 years old. Several artists and illustrators have come together to create an original work paying homage to the infamous death metal album. Opening Reception is May 20th and the show will run through June 11th at Eridanos in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

“Vincent Locke does a tremendous job crafting Cannibal Corpse cover art to reflect the music, but what if you dissected each song and had a different person illustrate their own interpretation?” Darcy replies when Decibel asks for the origin story behind this fine art splatterfest. “The sole guidance I gave each artist was to use the song title and lyrics to their respective track to create an original piece. That’s it. The result is a collection of the most sinister and gruesome art ever fathomed.”
