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).

    I'm glad russian orthodox church banned this band's cocncerts. Now their russian fans (normal prople call them govnari) have shown their real (I mean low) education level and horrible music taste.

    My copy of Skeletal Domain with the Bible of Butchery biography and album shirt arrived a few days ago. The new album is pretty good, the book seems to be interesting too judging by the few pages I've read so far. It even arrived with autographs of the whole band, which I didn't know it would contain when ordering, so this made me super happy! Cannibal Corpse is still great, so if you're a fan you won't be disappointed by the new album!

    Если бы мне кто-нибудь сказал даже месяца 4 назад, что я буду слушать Каннибалов, я бы не поверил. Всегда считал их песни тупым мясом. Иии....теперь я их слушаю)
