In response to the “Guy who doesn’t feel like putting a name,” WHAT????? One Album will cure this misconception. THE BLEEDING. That was the most corporate/EMO/ Main stream thing I have ever heard from a death metal band outside the European bands. You are defending a guy who made a death metal tribute to old 70’s Rock, Weed, and who is rocking dreadlocks? WTF!! I will all ways love Cannibal Corpse they rule and will never change that is why they got rid of Chris Barns!!! Great Job Cannibal!!!!
