Cannibal Corpse

Profile:
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.

Theres reasons why Cannibal Corpse has stood the test of time and come out on top. They keep on releasing great albums.. they tour relentlessly.. and the bands fanbase just keeps getting bigger. I see more younger people at a cannibal show nowadays than I do heshers my age. (50) Also, they have awesome merch. Im a collector, and ive got a lot of it. like, I love picture discs, and they have had many a picture disc over the years. Ive got most of em. from the old bootlegs up to the official new reissues. Theyve always been signed to metal blade records.. 30 years on the same label. they are true professionals. They dont put out bad albums. Every time a new Cannibal record comes out its different and cool, but its also that same unmistakeable Cannibal sound and vibe. They bring the heavy and the ridiculously fast without a doubt and blowtorch your eardrums with some of the best death metal ever written.

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.
