Biography

Buffalo, United States (1988 – present)

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. As a result of the band’s gruesome cover art, grisly lyrics and song titles like “Hammer Smashed Face,” “Meat Hook Sodomy” and “Addicted to Vaginal Skin,” follow-up records Butchered at Birth (1991) and Tomb of the Mutilated (1992) were met with further contempt by the likes of such organized censorship leagues as the PMRC. In just three years, the sale of Cannibal Corpse merchandise was (temporarily) prohibited in Australia, Korea, New Zealand and Germany.

Proving technical dexterity, diabolic vocal grunts and a penchant for serial killers, zombies and gore of all shapes, sizes and textures, Cannibal Corpse won over the hearts of many a metal extremist and have since become a harrowing household name. Since the band’s inception they have sold millions of albums world wide and show no sign of slowing or bowing down to the ever changing metal genre. Massive tours throughout the U.S. and Europe as well as Australia and South America only underscored the band’s staying power…and all this with zero commercial radio presence and minimal video play (although the band did appear in the Hollywood blockbuster, Ace Ventura - Pet Detective).

    So i've been wondering...why is I Cum Blood one of their most popular songs? It doesn't stand out to me amongst all of their other early songs...yet it's #3 on the charts, and they always play it live. Is it just because of the name?

    Some of their best songs are the more technical tracks they never play live. 'Hacksaw Decapitation', 'The Discipline of Revenge' and 'Frantic Disembowelment' of course are all awesome.

    пиздос, серьёзно, хоть что они выпустят вы будете писать:"О господи, как же божественно сыграл соло Пэт О’Брайен в этой песне",- или, "О боги, как же невероятно вставляет гроул Фишера на этом треке".У них разнообразие начинается только на Evisceration Plague и заканчивается на Torture. Новый сингл едва ли отличается от хоть какой песни на альбоме Torture

    The album "Vile" (1996) is really underrated, it was awesome. And the uncensored cover of that album is a gore masterpiece...
