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.
