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.

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.

"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.

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!"

We really received a great response, which is something we've come to expect from our Canadian fans. We want to thank all of our Canadian fans for coming out to the gigs and making the tour so killer, and also for making Centuries of Torment and Evisceration Plague two of the most successful releases in our band's history.”

Flatline Posts Cannibal Corpse Cover Online

LA metal band, Flatline, has posted a new song on their MySpace page. The song is a cover of Cannibal Corpse's "Hammer Smashed Face." The cover was recorded and mixed by Josh Newell.

The band comments on their decision to do the cover, "This is one of Cannibal Corpse’s most well known and beloved song out of all of their songs. This song was originally recorded in 1992 and is on the full-length album 'The Tomb of the Mutilated.' This song was also in the movie Ace Ventura Pet Detective. We basically started messing around with it at rehearsal and thought it would be fun to record with our buddy Josh."
