Cannibal Corpse

Band Photo: Cannibal Corpse (?)

Formed: 1988
From: Buffalo, NY, United States
Last Known Status: Active

Background

BANNED in Australia, New Zealand & Korea. BANNED from performing any material off their first three albums in Germany, where the sale of "Butchered At Birth" is outlawed completely!

It has been 16 years since a small band out of Buffalo, New York released their gorified Metal Blade Records debut "Eaten Back to Life," and in their decade+ existence, Cannibal Corpse have accomplished much more than getting their music and concerts banned. Cannibal Corpse have been repeatedly targeted by the morality police (Gore, PMRC, Lieberman, Dole), appeared in a blockbuster Hollywood feature film (Ace Venture: Pet Detective), debuted as the only Death Metal band to rank on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, graced the covers of virtually every Metal magazine in the world, toured the globe routinely and sold millions of records. All of this with zero commercial radio airplay and no exposure from MTV, save the periodic obligatory controversial news segment. On February 26th, 2002, "Gore Obsessed," the band's eighth full-length studio album, will redefine the Death Metal genre and reign as Cannibal Corpse's most accomplished and scrutinized recording to date. While not infringing on their trademark sound, Cannibal Corpse and multi-platinum first time Corpse producer Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Nevermore, Skrew, Macabre and many more) focused on technically powerful guitars and unmatched bass & drum syncopation that will leave the current crop of corporate makeup metallers slack jawed. "Pit Of Zombies" rips with alternating tempos and time changes that never leaves the listener behind, but drags them screaming into the pit. "Mutilation Of The Cadaver" is another prime chunk of meat that sees vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher easily spewing forth his finest vocal fury on record (including an unnerving fourteen second scream).

Eight albums in and Cannibal Corpse have never defied their core fan base, continually strengthening their place as the most enduring, relevant and uncompromising Death Metal band ever. With "Gore Obsessed" introducing future classics "Sanded Faceless", "Hung And Bled", "When Death Replaces Life" and "Dormant Bodies Bursting", Cannibal Corpse have buried any and all possibility of being dethroned as the reigning purveyors of aural gore and sonic splatter. Sure to once again peek the interest of those who feel it their responsibility to protect the moral fiber of America's youth culture, Cannibal Corpse again turned to long time friend and artist Vincent Lock to create a visual representation of "Gore Obsessed" that could match the band's musical depiction. Having set a high standard with album covers for "Butchered at Birth" and "Tomb of the Mutilated," Locke, as expected, delivered the gore, and more. The CD cover for "Gore Obsessed" will be masked for retail outlets as no "censored" cover will be available domestically.

Gwar And Korpiklaani Confirmed For Bloodstock

Bloodstock Open Air has confirmed a further two acts for next years festival. After being forced to pull out in 2009, the organizers have confirmed Gwar will be making an appearance. The Grammy-nominated Scumdogs Of The Universe will be flying in from Antarctica to unleash hell on all in attendance. Frontmonster Oderus Urungus warns us of the impending orgy of bodily fluids, nuclear waste and all manner of murder and vulgarity:

"Greetings people of Earth, it is I, ODERUS URUNGUS, lead singer of the Bloodiest band in metal history, the mighty GWAR! And it is with a sense of toe-curling delight and impending DOOM that I announce the addition of the GWAR to the mammoth BLOODSTOCK Open Air Metal Festival to be held this summer in England. Thats right, from the frozen depths of Antarctica, GWAR brings what BLOODSTOCK needs...BLOOD! Prepare yourself for the most colossal, disgusting, and completely politically incorrect show in metal history! We'll bring the swords, you bring the bodies, and together we shall turn the slam-pit into a seething mass of DEATH not seen in Europe since the fall of Berlin! GWAR is playing BLOODSTOCK...and may the Pope choke on it!"

Finnish folk metallers Korpiklaani will also be bringing their band of merry metal to Derby this summer for their only UK appearance of 2010. The band commented: More...

Cannibal Corpse Issues Road Report

Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster has issued the following European tour road report:

"We're a little over a week into our headlining European tour, and so far it's been a huge success. We started off the tour with two really cool festivals in Germany and then went on through Switzerland, back to Germany for another show, Belgium, France, and now Spain. Today we're in Bilbao, which is the third of three shows in Spain for this tour.

"So far the shows have all had great attendance. Last night in Madrid was sold out, and several other dates were really packed although not completely sold out, including a raging show at La Locomotive club in Paris ('La Loco'), which is located right next to the world-famous Moulin Rouge (see photos below in Paris).

"Tomorrow we head back into France for a show in Lyon, and then we head south to Italy and Greece, and then on to Eastern Europe before returning west again. I'll try to post a few more updates with some cool photos as the tour progresses. Until then I want to say thanks to the great fans who've attended the tour so far, hope to see the rest of you soon!"

Cannibal Corpse Bassist Posts New Road Report

Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster has posted a series of road reports from the Rockstar Mayhem Fest on swrsound.com. An excerpt from the latest report can be found below.

We’re about halfway through the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, and so far everything has been awesome. The crowds at the shows have continued to be killer with more huge pits day after day.

Since this is an open-air festival tour, we’ve dealt with all sorts of different weather—including 116° heat in Phoenix (reduced slightly late in the day by the shade created from a small dust storm); an impressive display of lightning in Albuquerque, which thankfully stayed miles away from the festival site; a “dust pit” in Denver that left us, the audience and our gear covered with a layer of dirt by the end of the show; wet and (relatively) cool conditions in the Midwest; and all the sweat-inducing heat and humidity you’d expect from the Southeast at the Atlanta show.

One of our favorite things we do on this tour is a daily signing at the Hot Topic tent. This starts at 3 p.m. and usually lasts about an hour. We’ve been having a great time meeting our fans at these signings—it’s a perfect way to get fired up for the upcoming performance.

Cannibal Corpse To Release Graphic Novel

Cannibal Corpse has issued the following statement about releasing a limited edition graphical novel during the Rockstar Mayhem Festival Tour:

"Death-metal icons CANNIBAL CORPSE are issuing a limited-edition 96 page comic book exclusively at the Hot Topic booth on this summer’s Rockstar Mayhem Festival tour. Drawn entirely by Vince Locke, who illustrated the acclaimed graphic novel ‘A History of Violence’ and each of the band’s album covers, the Evisceration Plague comic graphically depicts a story for every song on the band’s album of the same name—arranged in order, no less. As an added bonus, each copy comes with a copy of the album.......Vince Locke has done an incredible job turning our lyrics into blood-soaked and vicious illustrations for the Evisceration Plague comic book. He really has captured visually what we were trying convey lyrically. His artwork has brought our macabre songs to life in truly explicit fashion...fans of graphic horror will not be disappointed...Don’t forget to grab a copy at Mayhem this summer before they sell out!"
