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 ... Read more in Amazon's Cannibal Corpse Store

This CD is terrific: blunt vocals, unrelenting speed and pure anger. `Butchered' is served best with a steaming black cup of coffee an hour or so before a workout. This is perhaps the best of Cannibal's releases with Chris Barnes, even better than `Tomb' despite the lack of `Hammer Smashed Face.' And readers, please put aside the feigned outrage of the previous post from `metal fan' and others who post reviews and seem to never have listened to the discs or know any metal fans. I doubt any self-respecting metalhead would compare music to senseless shootings. It's a cheap copout and a lame excuse. Music doesn't cause crime, idiots do. Learn to spell and enter the real world.

I love reading reviews for Cannibal Corpse albums. These wars are just endlessly entertaining. On one side, we have the wannabe tough guys who fail to realize that this music isn't for everyone, and think that anyone who doesn't like them is just a spinelss wimp. On the other side, we have the bible-thumping conservative tightwads who think CC's very existence is the downfall of society, and that anyone who listens to them is a horrible person just because they like the music.

I, on the other hand, occupy a seemingly extreme minority on the issue: the middle ground. As an open-minded music fan, who listens to a little bit of everything, including a lot of extreme metal, I find Cannibal Corpse to be fun to listen to one or two songs at a time, but in large doses, they tend to be rather cheesy and monotonous. I mean, they have around 10 albums, all of which are pretty much the same thing over and over. Much like AC/DC, it's a good listen in small doses, but I can only listen to the same thing over and over for so long.

And, the lyrics, I think, are quite obviously not meant to be taken seriously, in either a positive or negative sense. I mean, anyone who goes out and disembowels someone just because they listened to a CC song obviously has serious problems. But, if you're somehow greatly offended by graphic subject matter, and think that anyone who likes the band for whatever reason is automatically the scourge of society, you're really not much better off. If you take the lyrics at face value, and just dismiss them as goofy over-the-top gore, they really shouldn't get in your way. Sure, the image is ridiculous, but it's really nothing to raise a big stink over.

This is Cannibal Corpse's best CD all the way! This album was a giant step up from "Eaten Back to Life". All of their new material is nothing compared to what this album was. Best songs on this album are Gutted, Covered with Sores, Vomit the Soul, & Innards Decay. All you people that say Cannibal Corpse sucks or that they ca'nt play have no idea what the hell real music is. Highly recommended for any true death metaller.

This may be the best way to describe this album. Brutal, unintelligible vocals(always a must-have for brutal metal), good fast-to-slow tempo changes, and ,of course, graphic depictions of carnage from the only group who could redefine the term "graphic art". This CD goes into the elite catagory of infamy because of its cover. The sales of this album are illegal in Germany, even though sales of all the other albums are not. Even here, various stores refuse to carry this album due to its graphic depiction of infanticide (that is baby killing for those of you unfamiliar with the word). As for the music, many people are wining about the vocals, even if they like the instumental part. They don't seem to understand that growled out vocals are essential to the music style. As for those who say CC has no talent, let's see someone like FONSECA or Beau Kendall growl like Chris Barnes. It's not easy. I can't even do it even though I'd really like to. And if you pay attention to the opening of "innards Decay", you will notice that it has some melodic actually. Plus, the speed of the songs changes a few times making it more listenable then various other bands, like Deicide. Plus Deicide lyrics have very little gore in them. They actually seem like nothing when you read CC lyrics, which actually hold no blasphamous or God-hating sentiment. Many people claim that Cannibal Corpse is a Satanic band when they see their art work,but these are people with no imagination who can't separate one form of contraversy from another. Many are people who don't know a thing about metal and insist on listening to the backstreet girls or n-stink. Listen to all the people here who know what they are talking about. And if you like BAB, get "The Bleeding".Read more ›

This is one of my favorite Cannibal Corpse albums in my collection. I bought it sometime in the summer of 1994 along with Imperial Doom by Monstrosity which at the time, featured George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher on vocals who is now the lead singer of Cannibal Corpse. This might seem like a pretty odd, premature twist of fate but it's true. But as of now, the album I'm reviewing is back to the days of Chris Barnes. That album is this one which is called Butchered At Birth.

Now before I do my review, there is something important that must be addressed. There are 2 versions of the first 3 Cannibal Corpse albums. Those 3 albums are Eaten Back To Life, this one and Tomb Of The Mutilated and there are 2 different versions of these albums available right now. The first ones are the original versions. The second ones are reissued and remastered versions with original artwork and inner sleeve layout enhanced and the CD's have bonus live tracks that can be played on a regular audio CD player and QuickTime CD-ROM for your computer. The version of this album that I'm reviewing right now is the original version.

Now for my review. This CD is one of the band's best albums. The lyrics are as sick as they can be as well as the artwork and inner sleeve layout. The songs on the other hand are heavy and brutal as hell. They have a lot of killer riffs, solos, harsh vocals, pounding bass and blast beats. The production and the sound however is low-toned which makes the album sound heavier and more brutal. So this is an album for the old school, young, reckless and immature death metalheads with a hunger to listen to something extreme. Some of my favorite songs here are Meat Hook Sodomy, Living Dissection, Under The Rotted Flesh, Vomit The Soul, Butchered At Birth and Innards Decay. Buy this album and prepare to get butchered.
