Cannibal Corpse

Recommended Posts

Re: Cannibal Corpse I wouldn't say they are one of my favourite bands, however, they are definitely a good one. They're great to let out some rage with, just listening to their overwritten lyrics and enjoying is just... relieving. I love to just sit and listen and just... I dunno, enjoy. I can't really describe it properly, as you can tell, but yeah, they're really good.

Re: Cannibal Corpse

I wouldn't say they are one of my favourite bands' date=' however, they are definitely a good one.[/quote'] More or less my impression. They can be very technical at times, but they're a bit too simplistic on the lyrical front, and raw in the musical sense, for my tastes.

Re: Cannibal Corpse I've always had a soft spot for them. I've seen them 3 or 4 times and they put on excellent shows every time. I've got all their CD's and for a while they were my favorite Death Metal band. Obituary is my all time favorite now.

Re: Cannibal Corpse

Their first four albums are mandatory classics' date=' with Corpsegrinder era being hit or miss with their peaks being Bloodthirst and Kill. The band's early material is incredible in my opinion, though now they should just break up and save face.[/quote'] Their first four albums are fun except for Tomb of the Mutilated. That album is painfully boring. Everything they've done w/ Corpsegrinder has been incredible. The only really "bad" album of his era would be 'Gore Obsessed' that album is pretty dull. 'Bloodthirst' isn't too far behind it however.

Re: Cannibal Corpse

my favorite album is evisceration plague. its the album i own by them and the only album that i love all of the songs. i also have the dvd "the making of evisceration plague".
Definitely agree there. Evisceration Plague, and Butchered at Birth are both fun, although, the reason I love Butchered at Birth so much is more so because of one song, "Rancid Amputation". Andrew Hansen did a good cover of that. I recommend looking it up and laughing hard.

Re: Cannibal Corpse

I've tried listening to this band on several occasions but I just can't get into it' date=' I think its probably the vocals that put me off, as I've made clear on several occasions my tolerance to harsh vocals is low at best[/quote'] It is something that grows on you. The first time I heard Napalm Death and later Cannibal Corpse I loved the music but wasn't sure about the vocals. Now I have a hard time listening to something that doesn't have the grim/extreme vocals. Everyone can sing, not everyone can growl.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
