5.0 out of 5 stars The Start Of A Good Thing, Nov. 16 2003
This is the bands debut and it came out in August 1990. Although it is very much a death metal album, it was their most influenced by thrash, especially in the riff patterns. The album kicks off with "Shredded Humans" and it has great mid-tempo riffs to lead it off before grinding its way into a fast paced death metal tune. "Edible Autopsy" is more of the same with some of the most singable lyrics of the album, a tale of workers at a hospital who like to eat and torture their patients / victims, kind of like the cast of ER on crack!! "Put Them To Death" has some of the catchiest riffs on the album, while "Scattered Remains, Splattered Brains" has a very catchy chorus. My favorite of this album has always been "Born In A Casket", the riffs they came up with on this song are killer and the story is great classic horror. "A Skull Full Of Maggots" is often used at the end of shows to this very day and "Buried In The Backyard" closes the album with some very technical guitar playing and intense frumming, and is the story of an evil sorcerer who kills and buries victims in his backyard, then roams the cemetery to command the dead to rise and kill for him. All in all this was a great start for the band that only began to hint at their potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Increased Emphasis On Brutality, Nov. 16 2003
This review is from: Butchered at Birth (Audio CD)
This is the second Cannibal Corpse album and it came out in August 1991. While their first album had lots of great thrash influenses in the riffing department, this album seemed to go for more all out brutlaity and bloodshed!! It opens with "Meat Hook Sodomy" with some intense guitar feedback as the intro before heading into an all out blasting death metal song. "Gutted" is next up and reaminds a concert favorite to this day. "Living Dissection" has lots of great riffs and a catchy vocal pattern during the chorus. Those who say this album is just a blur and has no memorability aren't paying enough attention!! "Covered With Sores" is one of the more mid-tempo tracks and is always another great live song. My favorite here is "Vomit The Soul" which is one of their more satanic songs lyrically, and it also has some of the best riff patterns and leads of the album. The titles cut s all otu brutality and the album closer "Innards Decay" shows the band has a slight melodic touch when it comes to solos. I doubt the critics of this band made it to the final song which is their loss since if they would listen to the leads in that song they would see the band is very talented!! With this album Cannibal Corpse showed they were contenders in the rising death metal genre, and they are today seasoned veterans!! This remastered edition also includes a live video clip of "Covered With Sores".

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably Still My Favorite Corpse Album, Nov. 16 2003
This review is from: Tomb of the Mutilated (Audio CD)
This is their third studio album and it came out in September 1992. I own and like all of this bands output, but if I had to pick one all time favorite it would be this album. It simply crushes from start to finish and is very memorable at the same time. The riffs they came up with for this album are simply amazing!! This opens with one of the bands all out clasics "Hammer Smashed Face" with pulverizing riffs and insanely memorable vocals and lyrics. The all out groove part in the middle is simply great. "I Cum Blood" has some great opening riffs and leads in the middle. The ending is also cool when they actually pick up the aggression from the already hyper beginning and middle sections!! "The Cryptic Stench" is another personal favorite of mine, the riffing pattern set at the beginning is great and develops well as the song goes on. 'Necropedophile" has some of their most extreme lyrics ever and the final song "Beyond The Cemetery" ends the album in fine fashion. I can easily understand Chris Barnes' vocals in the majority of all the songs here yet some still complain of of the vocals being 100% unintelligible and I think their just not accustomed to death metal vocals to make a staement like that!! Its as though they think their into metal cuz they like lame nu-metal junk like KoRn, Disturbed, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, etc. and decide to try something more extreme one day such as Cannibal Corpse and then say this band is junk simnply since its not what their used to!! Well if thats what they believe its their loss, since their really missing out on lots of good music, but MTV brainwashes the youth that way so what can you do!! But back to this album, its a classic in every sense of the word and I highly recommend it. This newly remastered version has a bonus video clip for "I Cum Blood" and the quality is very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Their Best, Nov. 16 2003
This review is from: Bleeding (Uncensored) (Audio CD)
This is the 4th cannibal Corpse album and it came out in April 1994. Despite that its one their older albums, it still has many songs played live to this day in concert since so many fan favorite are here. It opens with the mid-tempo "Staring Through The Eyes Of The Dead" which had a pretty good video to go with it, which of course MTV didn't have the guts to air, big surprise there!!! Next up is "****** With A Knife" and it really picks up the speed factor, and this one has lyrics that are more similar to the "Tomb Of The Mutilated" album. "Stripped, Raped and Strangled" has one of their most catchy riffs ever and is one of the best songs off the album. "Pulverized" is another brutal assult with some great guitar dualing during the chrous. One of my personal favorites is "Return To Flesh" which has tons of great riffs before the first verse and the best solo of the album in the middle and some great riffing to close out the tune. "The Pick-Axe Murders" and "She Was Asking For It" are both very catchy as well. "The Bleeding" opens up with a great lead-riff and then really picks up the tempo quite a bit. "Force Fed Broken Glass" starts off full throttle before winding its way into a crepping outro. "An Experiment In Homicide" has one of my favorite lines of the album, "I don't want to hurt you, I just want to kill you" an closes the album in fine fashion. This hwas the last to feature original singer Chrish Barnes who went on to form Six Feet Under. Many felt this was a critical blow to the band, but when "Vile" came out 2 years later, fears of them fading away were quickly put to rest!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Debut Of Corpsegrinder!!!, Nov. 16 2003
This review is from: Vile (Uncensored) (Audio CD)
This is the 5th studio album from Cannibal Corpse and it came out in May 1996, at the very end of my senior year. It also marked the debut of George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher who came from another great band, the very under-rated Monstrosity. When it came out many wondered if he had what it took to do the vocals for one of the best death metal bands ever. Well, by the end of opener "Devored By Vermin", we all knew the answer was yes and then some. "Devored By Vermin" also had a great drum intro and showed they were going more for all out brutality and speed as opposed to the more mid-tempo and catchy nature of their previous album "The Bleeding" was was still great of course. "Mummified In Barbed Wire" has some great shredding throughout and a very memorable chorus, as does "Disfigured". Also, the outro of "Disfigured" is excellent, very creeping, and it blends perfectly into one of my favorite cuts of the album, "Bloodlands". this song has slow, creepy intro riffs that turn intro some good mid-tempo riffs before going full throttle by the end when Corpsegrinder yells "GENOCIDE" four times straight. "Puncture Wound Massace" is full on speed and aggression and "Relentless Beating" is a great instrumental. Another highlight for me is the final song "Monilith" which not only has a great intro, but Jck Owen does some great solo picking a couple times throughout the song. This song also has some of the better leads and riffs of the album. Another interesting fact about this album is when it came out, it actually debuted at #151 on the Billboard charts, I think its about the most extreme album to ever land on the top 200 and best of all they did it by not selling out!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gallery Of Brutality!!, Nov. 16 2003
This is the 6th album from Cannibal Corpse and it came out in April 1998. It opens with two extremely fast tracks which are "I Will Kill You" and "Disposal Of The Body". On "Sentenced To Burn" they go for a more mid-tempo approach but the results are still terrific, and this song has some of the best riffs of the album. On "Blood Drenched Execution", Corpsegrinder does some great tormented shreiks during the chorus to go with his more traditional growls!! Next up is the title track and its one of the best on the album, starting off with a slower pace then going for an all our assult during the middle and end. "Dismembered And Molested" has some of the most graphic lyrics of the album that would git very well on their first three albums. "From Skin To Liquid" is a moody instrumental, and I wish bands would do more of them, its a great way to show off nothing but their musical skills and this instrumental really does suceed. "Unite The Dead" has an interesting lyrical concept. Next up is two mid-tempo tracks, "Stabbed In The Throat" has great opening riffs and the catchiest chorus of the album, but "Chambers Of Blood" also has a very singable chorus also. The final fous songs pretty much go for all out speed and brutality and end the album in fine fashion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Thirsty For The Carnage!!, Nov. 16 2003
This is Cannibal Corpse's 7th studio album and came out in October 1999. It opens with "Pounded Into Dust" and "Dead Human Collection" two ultra-fast death metal assults with tons of great guitar shredding and unholy vocals from Corpsegrinder!! The third song "Unleashing The Bloodthirsty" is one of the highlights of the album, with some truly great riffs and a very memorable chorus. The guitar team of Jack Owen and Pat O' Brien really shine on this album. "The Spine Splitter" and "Ecstacy In Deacy" really pick up the tempo yet again, and with "Coffinfeeder" it goes into a *slightly* slower mode with some great riffing and another great, catchy chorus. "Hacksaw Decapitation" has a powerful intro and has some of Corpsegrinder's best vocals of the album, and "Blowtorch Slaughter" was a great live cut during that tour in 1999-2000. This is yet another good release from the band, and it was also the third to feature Corpsegrinder on vocals. Many felt this was the album where he really became respected as the singer of the band for all his abilities,and not just seen as a suitable replacement for Chris Barnes. If you like death metal and grind this come highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hardest Working Death Metal Band Always Delivers, Nov. 16 2003
This review is from: Gore Obsessed (Audio CD)
This is Cannibal Corpse's 8th studio album and was released in february 2002. It opens right away with two ultra fast tracks in "Savage Butchery" and "Hatchet To The Head" before going into "Pit Of Zombies" which still has brutality yet offers many unique tempo changes and really adds depth to the album. This has also become one of my favorite songs of theirs. Another favorite is "Mutation Of The Cadaver" with more great riffs and an awesome solo by O' Brien. "Compelled To Lacerate" has great dual lead riffs that they always do well and "When Death Replaces Life" adds a different almost melodic touch to their sound with some more great leads!! The album concludes in classic Corpse fashion with the brutal "Grotesque", but if you have one of the first pressings of this album it actually ends with a cover of the great Metallica classic "No Remorse" which they do perfect, and Lars said he actually likes Cannibal Corpse's version too!! All in all, if you've ever liked this band, this is a great album to add to your collection, as they always know how to keep it real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Great Classic Guitar Shredding, Nov. 16 2003
This review is from: Stone Blue/Boogie Motel (Audio CD)
This release contains 2 classic Foghate album's, their 1978 release "Stone Blue" which was their 7th studio album, and their 1979 release "Boogie Motel" which was their 8th studio album. First off we have the "Stone Blue" album which has great hard rocking cuts like "Easy Money", "Stay With Me", "Chevrolet" and a huge late 70's radio hit for them in "Stone Blue". This album also contains a good cover of the blues classic "Sweet Home Chicago." Next up is the "Boogie Motel" album which had one of their lighter songs in "Third Time Lucky (First Time I Was A Fool)" and was a decent hit single also. "Boogie Motel" also featured some good heavy rockers like "Nervous Release", "Love In Motion", "Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed" and the epic jam "Boogie Motel". To those not familiar with the band, or those who may only know them from their bigest hit "Slow Ride", do check this pair of classic albums out if you like that song since it really is some of the best classic rock ever put out, the late Lonesome Dave and Rod Price were always a great guitar team and Roger Earl was and still is an incredible drummer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Hard Luck Winds Been Blowin' At My Back, Dec 31 2002
This review is from: 6:66 Satans Child (Audio CD)
This is Danzig's sixth studio album and was released in November 1999. It kicks off with a pair of great hard rocking tracks, "Five Finger Crawl" and "Belly Of The Best". The more melodic mood sets in for "Lilin" which features a great vocal by Glenn. One of my favorites here is "Cult Without A Name" which starts off as a slow, creepy riff then builds to a chaotic rocker. "East Indian Devil" has some amazing music to it, one of Danzig's most diverse pieces ever. Other highlights include "Firemass", "Cold Eternal", "Satan's Child" which features a great main riff, and the atmosphereic outro, "Thirteen" which has in my opinion the best lyrics of the whole album. As a whole, the album "Satan's Child" was seen as a slight return to Danzig's hard rock roots found on his first four albums, yet still had some of the experimental feel of "Blackacidevil". It's too bad this album kind of went unoticed as its really strong. Fans of his early albums who maybe gave up on him because they didn't like "Blackacidevil" should definately give this one a shot.
