Cannibal Corpse

Cannibal Corpse image provided by Biography from

Formed in Buffalo, NY in 1988, Cannibal Corpse helped found, manipulate and transcend the very boundaries of death metal beginning with the scandalously controversial debut, Eaten Back To Life. Raising the eyebrows of inquisitive metal fans and incensed parents and politicians, the record - produced by Scott Burns at the now renowned Morrisound Studios - was more extreme and confrontational than anything the Death Metal genre had ever known.

It’s Friday. You’ve had a crappy week. Right now you’re stuck in front of a computer, probably doing some boring nonsense work when you’d either a) be in the pub, or b) like us, wish you were at Hammerfest. Well we’re not, you’re not, and we’re annoyed about it. We’ve got a lot of aggression we need to work out.

Which is why we’re damn glad Cannibal Corpse have just released their video for ‘Encased In Concrete’.

When people talk about Cannibal Corpse, they usually wank on about the classics: Tomb Of The Mutilated, The Bleeding or Butchered At Birth. But there’s a slowly growing set of voices claiming their recent output is in fact the best the kings of gore have done. And Torture is the final step needed to premanently raise modern ‘Corpse among the “classics”.

cannibal corpse thrash hits centuries of torment

There’s gore-grind, there’s death metal, then there’s Cannibal Corpse. When it comes to songs about doing unspeakable things to dead bodies with power tools and/or penises, they’re pretty much the daddies. So when the guts-obsessed five-piece hammered Sheffield flat yesterday, we made sure our top photographer, Gary Wolstenholme was down at the front to capture George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher and co up close and personal.

Interview: Cannibal Corpse – “Death metal doesn’t have a lot of rules…”

January 20th, 2009

When we caught up with him over Christmas, Cannibal Corpse bassist, Alex Webster, was looking forward to a quiet Christmas with his family. But now it’s back to business as usual – Hugh Platt caught up with him to talk gore, guts, and their new album of death metal grinds.

When Britney Spears has a Parental Advisory sticker on her album, it undermines the symbol as a warning God-fearing parents to not let their little lambs get their hands on is. Not that there’s any such doubts when said sticker is on a Cannibal Corpse record though – the Buffalo-based 4-piece are the kind of warped musical experience that could give the Pope a prolapse.

Cannibal Corpse: Yo Ho Ho and a Hammer-Smashed Face

December 24th, 2008

When we think about Christmas, the first things that spring to mind are Santa Claus, mince pies, and graphic gore-metal. Okay, that’s not strictly true – occasionally we take a break from all the merriment to reflect on that baby Jesus fellow. But then we’re straight back on to that gore-metal.

So what better time could there be to catch up with the undisputed Kings of Gore, Florida’s Cannibal Corpse? We cornered bassist, Alex Webster, and gave him some short sharp ‘uns on how the death metal pioneers are planning on spending Christmas.

There are faster, more brutal death metal bands than Cannibal Corpse, but there are none more consistent or with such an unearthly ability to write catchy songs.

‘Catchy’, of course, doesn’t mean cheerful – it means groove-laden and unforgettable, like the horrific Hammer Smashed Face or I Cum Blood.

This lies at the heart of the CC approach, and thus at the centre of this lavish 3-DVD package, issued to celebrate two decades of slasher-themed extreme metal.

As Cannibal Corpse are Metal Blade’s cash cow, it’s no surprise that the label have splashed out on a ton of content.

Watch the trailer to Centuries Of Torment by Cannibal Corpse

The three-hour main feature takes the viewer back to the mid-80s with the help of former singer Chris Barnes (now all chummy again with his old band), onlookers such as Monstrosity, Ice-T and Trivium and a slew of associated personnel.

The editing is engagingly brisk, lending Centuries… a professional air which is streets ahead of any other metal DVD issued to date. And the bonus footage? Another three hours of live shows. Essential.


Centuries Of Torment: The First 20 Years by Cannibal Corpse is out on July 8 on Metal Blade
