About this album

Butchered at Birth is the second album by American band Cannibal Corpse. It was released in 1991 through Metal Blade Records. The album was banned in Germany until June 2006, due to the gory cover art made by artist Vince Locke, which featured a slaughtered mother-to-be being carved by a zombie, her baby apparently about to be slaughtered by a second zombie, and dead fetuses hanging from meat hooks and nooses. First pressings of the compact disc were wrapped in white butcher paper stamped with the band logo and album title in red ink. The cover art also drew a complaint from the Ontario Provincial Police in Canada, which led to a warning to record stores being told not to sell the album to persons under 18.

Rancid Amputation was given a music re-arrangement by Andrew Hansen of the Australian comedy team, The Chaser.

    Used to find it their weakest, but I was my fault, I just wasn't feeling it.

    Subestimado demais, creio eu. Tem uma porrada de riffs fodas, principalmente o da música que dá título ao álbum. A produção é excelente, sem falar no vocal e letras do monstro Chris Barnes (que dão aquela brutalidade e obscuridade a mais pro disco). Ainda tenho dúvidas se gosto mais desse, ou dos 2 álbuns seguintes da banda.

    No, it's official. My favourite Cannibal Corpse album. Everything in this album is perfect.

    This album is if not my favourite in the top three CC albums. The riffs, the drums and of course the mighty Barnes. His growls are more than awesome. Probably this is his best performance at least for me.

    The demon on the right on the artwork scares the shit out of me. Seriously ... what a look.

    Best album? Let's see ... the guitar sound is like someone kicked a beehive, there is basically just one drum beat/tempo through the whole thing, there isn't ONE memorable riff just a mangled mush of near-chromatic nonsense .... this album makes "Eaten" sound like an opus magnum.
