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.Read more ›
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.
