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.

Vocalist Trevor Strnad comments, “Hear Ye thrashing metal maniacs! We have returned with our most relentless album yet…sure to penetrate and ravage your virgin ears, "Deflorate!" I feel confident that we have outdone what we achieved with our last album... words cannot express the excitement we all feel about the new material. Now this is fucking Death Metal! The boys at Audiohammer Jason Suecof and Mark Lewis have done it again…the result is one beastly sounding album. Last but certainly not least, prepare yourselves to behold the hair raising shred of Georgia's own Ryan Durell Knight! Special thanks to Tony Koehl for the kickass job on the cover art…feast your eyes and ears on this most unholy of spectacles! The time of Defloration is upon us!” More...

Cannibal Corpse Announces More Tour Dates

What more can be said, in this Year Of The Corpse 2009, that hasn't already been whispered, grunted or screamed about the almighty Cannibal? They've smashed—nay, hammer smashed—every boundary set before them, defied every censor set upon them, and besmirched every country that would have them. After two decades of unending death metal torment, the band's calling cards are many: the depraved lyrics, the blinding technical prowess, the dominating stage presence, the legions of dedicated fans, the million and a half albums sold. Cannibal Corpse are slashing their way back to Australia and New Zealand to skewer us as all from ear to ear in support of their new album "Evisceration Plague"!

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."

Cannibal Corpse Issues Tour Road Report

Cannibal Corpse bassist Alex Webster has issued the following road report from their current tour alongside The Faceless, Neuraxis, and Obscura:

"Hey everybody, we've been on the road in the USA and Canada for around two weeks and so far the tour has been completely killer. Attendance has been great at all of the shows, with two of the shows selling out completely (Tulsa and Edmonton). The fact that we have such a kick-ass lineup of bands on the tour (The Faceless, Neuraxis, and Obscura) has to be contributing to the great success of the tour.

"We just finished a show in Winnipeg and it was another amazing audience like the rest of the shows so far on the tour. Of all of the shows so far the Winnipeg gig probably had the most stage diving, so we were dodging flying bodies throughout our performance...it got pretty crazy up there at times, but it really added to the energy of the show.

"Tomorrow we head to Thunder Bay, a city we have only played once before if I remember correctly. That was back in 2004 and we had a great time then so we expect more of the same tomorrow. After Thunder Bay we're heading down into the States for a few shows, then back up to Canada before working our way back down the East Coast to our home state Florida. We want to thank all of the fans that have come out to the shows so far, and we look forward to seeing the rest of you at the upcoming shows of the Evisceration Plague tour. Until then, stay brutal!!!"
