Cannibal Corpse

Cannibal Corpse

Death Metal band formed in Buffalo, New York, 1988.

Cannibal Corpse have accumulated an enormous following since their inception and are officially the top-selling death metal artists of all time in the US. The band have also been accused of "undermining the national character of the United States" and seen their albums and indeed, themselves, banned in several countries. Germany, for example, banned the group from performing all material up to and including Tomb Of The Mutilated until 2006.

Cannibal Corpse are a really lovely bunch of lads from across the pond. They've been very misunderstood by the music press and the general public who mistakenly thought that the cheeky lads were out to just shock and horrify people, but when you listen to the depth and beauty in songs like "Stripped, Raped & Strangled" "Hacksaw Decapitation" and the beautiful love ballad "Addicted To Vaginal Skin" it's easy to see that the message was clearly about love for one another in this loveless world.
Rumour has it that a new batch of songs are on the way and a somewhat new style what with the addition of violin, flute, harp and piano on some of the songs, however the track titles are as thought provoking as ever with "I Did A Big Shit In My Pants And Threw Them At My Mum, On Purpose" as the the new album opener, and "I Shove Used Tampons Up My Nose" (a gorgeous ballad) and it closes with a stone cold classic called "I Done A Massive Shit In My Girlfriends Pants And Threw Them At Her Dad, On Purpose, And I Didn't Care" which is a sort of reprise of the first track.

I will agree with this as well. although the reason for this is the departure of chris barnes in my opinion. the first 4 full lengths are really good for death metal releases, and do sound different among the barnes projects(even his vocal styles changed throughout the 1st 4 albums). add corpsegrinder and everything went downhill and fast. I remember watching a cannibal corpse vhs in the late 90's/early 2000's seeing corpsegrinder doing an interview. he went on to say something like he hadn't washed his hair for a week or so on tour and "that's death metal", or some very close dumb shit like that. this mixed with the comment in the same interview about still living at home with his mom was proof that not only was he a complete douche but without barnes they were just a watered down version of what was. butchered at birth is a hands down, must own album if you are a death metal fan. blistering fast blast beats and technical, shredding riffs. the vocals in my opinion are the sickest sounding of the barnes releases. great guest vocals on vomit the soul by glen Benton.

After listening to one track from CC latest effort "Kill" (closing instrumental called "Infinite Misery") I realized that they sound absolutely the same way that they did back in 1991. Nothing, and i mean it - absolutely nothing has changed (except for a line-up). That's precisely their main selling point, I know, but to me it just sounds boring. Nobody is asking them to add keyboard sounds, but a little bit of change, aside from an artwork and lyrics would be nice. Talking about lyrics - I don't think that they are able to shock anyone by now, not even soccer moms, since anyone knows what CC are about lyrically (praising rape, torture and all that fun stuff). Die-hards will buy all of their albums in an instant, but to me CC are akin to circus freaks, who are constantly concerned about staying "true" and "brutal", but forget all that makes music interesting. Professional ? Yes, absolutely. But also mind-numbingly boring for the most part.
