Cannibal Corpse was a very risque band when i first heard them. i was watching Ace Ventura, and i saw this death metal band playing a kickass song, and i found out it was cannibal corpse. i went online and found the lyrics for the song “hammer smashed face”, the song in the movie. i was only 12 at the time, and the lyics actually scared me to death.
over time, i listend to mix cd’s my friends had, which had some C.C. thrown in. i was starting to enjoy them more and more every day. in early 2004, i bought “The Wretched Spawn” and it is a D.M masterpiece in my eyes. Jack and Pat are guitar wizards, they can play at around 200 something BPM without missing a note, Alex is THE best bassist i have heard since i started listening to metal, Paul is crazy on the drums with his double bass assaults, and snare attacks, and finally, George’s growls add a flair of death in the music.
The album highlights are Frantic Disembowlment, Slain, Festering in the Crpypt, and Severed Head Stoning. every song is good, but these ones take the cake.
the music is much more diverse in this album, and the bonus DVD has a few laughs in it as well. (listen to Jack play “My pockets got a hole in it”). but all in all, this album is a must have for either C.C. fans, or D.M heads. (not to mention that the album’s cover art is totally badass!!!)
Take twenty dollars out of your wallet, and go buy this album for god’s sake!!!!!!!!!!
