Cannibal Corpse

Recommended Posts

Re: Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse to me is like the AC/DC of death metal. They have their signature sound and they stick to it, and I think that works for them, whereas Morbid Angel, up until they ran out of gas, never made an album that sounded like its predecessor, and that worked for them.

Re: Cannibal Corpse Either way, I've been enjoying this discussion, as well as some others we've been having. If you get a chance, hop over to the "Top 10 Albums of Any Given Year" thread in the "Hobbies" section, I would be interested to see your selections. If anyone else is reading this, I would like to see your selections as well, it seems like NTNR and I are the only ones contributing over there.

Re: Cannibal Corpse

speaking of NTNR he's been M.I.A for a little while now' date=' but then I guess he wouldn't have much in the way of free time anymore[/quote'] I haven't heard from him either, they had their baby on Thursday and we have 4 weeks off from jamming together because of it.

Re: Cannibal Corpse Thankfully we can all practice at home until we're able to jam together. ;) I really need to get the new CC album. I like what I've heard thus far. Damn being on a super tight budget!

Re: Cannibal Corpse

bloody hell we have a festival down here that only lasts about that long and you get all that at one show? I am so jealous although I still think cannibal corpse are overrated
Well, the Cannibal Corpse and Behemoth tours merged for this one show. They were both going to be in the area at the same time so some savvy promoters got together and convinced them to combine them together for one night.

Cannibal Corpse Well, believe it or not, i have finally brought myself to like (or at least respect CC) i enjoy the first album, BAB is way too sickening for me though :/ but i think Chris Barnes was good, Corpsegrinder is such a legend, I watched an interview with him, never realised how cool and layed back he is, still sometimes i cant get over the lyrics and stuff, yeah i'm kind of a newbie to DM

^Don't listen to this cretin xD listen to what you love. Cannibal Corpse? Best death metal band, imo. They started a revolution in metal music and that's something not many bands can do if any. I love every single one of their albums! Very quality band and the members are very down to earth fan-based people. Love the band with a passion hope i can meet em some day!

Not sure how they "started a revolution", as they were far from the first death metal band. There are talented musicians in the band (especially Alex Webster), but the songwriting is boring and their riffs only do something for me in small doses. They seemed nice in person, but were very dull live. Some people like them, but I'm not one of them. Sent from my HTC PH39100 using Tapatalk 2

    • 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!
