Apparantly not mate. You'll have to talk to Deathbringer about putting pictures up I'm afraid. You'd be amazed at what bands don't have a picture and who does, usually relates to headline news and columns.

Saw them support COB last year in Feb, were pretty good live...but they're not really my thing. I just constantly get laughs over "Corpsegrinder".

The thing I most watched for the whole show was how talented Alex Webster is.

Is Frost still with 1349? and if so, is he actually able to get into the country? Last time I saw Satyricon, they had to bring Trym from Emperor/Zyklon to play drums cuz Frost couldn't get in the country.

#7, your comment about not understanding everyone's love for Mastodon on another thread comes to mind for me here...I feel the exact same way about CC. Amazing talent potential but every song sounds the same (to me) and every song is about butchering or mutilating someone or something. How does that not get boring? I will never understand.

post #15, I can see how non-stop lyrics bout killin' and butchering sh** up could get a little stale, but the thing is and I'm sure most cannibal fans would agree with me on this is that it's not about the lyrics, the lyrics are secondary to the music itself. I know cannibal for a majority of their career have put more emphasis on the rythmic pattern of the vocals rather than the actual lyrics, especially since corpsegrinder became the vocalist. And the reason they've always gone with the gorey lyrics is simply just to match the intensity of the music, which is what it's all about. Mind you this IS just my opinion. And on the subject of all their songs sounding the same, dude listen to Skull full of Maggots and then give Bloodthirst a listen, it's like night and day, they sound nothing alike.

CC gets f***ing boring at times just like any other band, but when it comes down to it and you see them live (because that's what music is made for) they f***ing destroy. One of the best pits I've been in, a close second to Brain Drill.
