Hammer Smashed Face. Is there really anything else to say? An incredible, unrelenting death metal classic that shines on all fronts, and doesn’t rely on the crutch of necrophilia that so many of their songs, especially on Tomb of the Mutilated, have leaned on. C Corpse’s cover of Possessed’s the Exorcist is well executed, tight, and heavy, and their version of the Black Sabbath classic Zero the Hero is even heavier with Chris Barnes’ ultra heavy, completely un-understandable singing and the guitar mastery of Jack Owen. Worth the money, if you want to own a classic song, but don’t want to pay $15 for a whole bunch of necrophilia crap.
Chimaira are back! Beyond their demons. Beyond any limitations. Their new album, Resurrection features 11 tracks of obliterating metal produced by Jason Suecof (Trivium, God Forbid) and mixed by the legendary Andy Sneap. Vocalist Mark Hunter explains, ”This is our fourth album and we as a band, are collectively and for the first time ever, in synch and in a `positive’ new headspace; we are all really excited about the new material.” After selling over 300,000 records over the past few years on Roadrunner, and touring the world with bands like Slayer; Chimaira are poised to be the breakthrough band of 2007. In fact, they are starting the year on one of the biggest metal tours of the winter alongside Killswtich Engage and Dragonforce.

Pivitol release partly marking the beginning of Death Metal as a genre. Unsurpassed brutality, speed and aggression.
The first time I heard Cannibal Corpse, I immediately dismissed the band ’cause of the horrible vocals. I kept listening, mostly for comedic value, and it slowly grew on me. The guitar as we can all mostly agree on is fantastic, and the vocals are just something you gotta get used to. All three songs on this EP are awesome pieces of art. Just listen with an open mind.
Every once in far too long, the cosmos is blessed by the introduction of a group of musicians so Earthshatteringly brilliant, that all the angels in Heaven lay down their harps, to marvel that even god could create something so beautiful. This CD captures the essence of everything that is right. Purer than a mountain spring, and more beautiful than the morning dew on the petals of a crimson rose.This band has the ability to convey the most complicated and nameless of emotions. From the smallest child to the pope himself, everyone can relate to these eloquent lyrics. The complex melodies and harmonies are matched only by Cradle of Filth. This is Cannibal Corpse at their finest hour. If I could only have one CD, it would be this.
Some may think I’m silly for giving this song five stars, but I have my reasons: I’ve never heard anyone do such a remarkable impression of what it would sound like if Cookie Monster were in the music-making business, and I have to applaud Chris Barnes for being able to growl so low! I always thought Max from Sepultura was a growler – was I wrong! And I have to applaud the band for the powerful, fast, crunching rhythms. If you are a true metal fan as well as musician, you will like this song. I also have to give it another star because it doesn’t screw the world up, as a fellow reviewer said, as does other music that promotes murder, drugs and gangs. Anyone who can’t appreciate this band’s musicianship and ability to create such diverse rhythms, such as a non-musician or anti-metal type, has no business reviewing this song, or treading the grounds of metal music. Honestly you have to be a musician as well as metal fan to understand why I’ve rated this song so well. Keep up the good work Cannibal Corpse! Long live metal!
