SANDED FACELESS: The Cannibal Corpse Thread

Message Bookmarked

They've got a new album coming out (and "Sanded Faceless" is the name of one of the rockin' chunes thereon). Hard to believe that they've been around for more than a decade now. Yet they, and their beloved Cookie-Monster-gone-psycho vocals and over-the-top-disgusting lyrics, are still going strong. Something of a joke in death metal circles, but there's something to be said for longetivity (and the gross-out factor).

"If vomit were a movie, this would be the soundtrack," as one critic said. Or, as an ex-girlfriend wrote, "the nadir of American civilization." Which is why I love 'em to (bloody, gore-splattered) pieces, of course!

someone in my 10th grade art class got sent out of the room for wearing a cannibal corpse t-shirt. cannibal corpse always struck me as "the nadir of civilization" precisely because they were neither slicked-up radio metal or the worst of the overthetop black/death/grind sets (carcass, burzum, bathory) or even the "politicized" "hardcore" bands who shared their sound almost exactly (napalm death, man is the bastard, eyehategod.) for this unceasingly devotion to cartoonish mayhem, they should indeed be applauded even if i have no time for their music any more.

Motorco is apparently where they are tonight. I saw them in Jacksonville (Crazy Horse).

"Skull Full of Maggots" always nice when they pull that one out.

also a CC show is p much the only place you can hear someone shout "I cum blood!" and hear hundreds of sweaty men scream in ecstacy in response

I saw them back in March, with Behemoth. They were great.

saw that tour too! geez I've seen them now 7 times in 5 years, the 8th next month. took me 15 years to see Slayer that many times

helps that they do one offs in Tampa every now and then

I'm kind of glad that for the most part, scenesters have stopped fronting when it comes to CC. when I first got into CC I used to get massively clowned for listening to "K-Mart death metal". admittedly I like my death metal a little less polished sounding, usually (the sheen is one reason I got put off of Bloodthirst for years before deciding I still liked it)....but god they're fun.

i used to not like "Vile" but i've realized that when they play "Devoured by Vermin" i always love it so revisiting it

four weeks pass...

Seeing them for the 8th time. \m/

feel like they get louder and louder each time. a lot of death metal bands have this hollowed out sound live, muddy and scooped, whereas Cannibal just sound so massive. damn my ears...

the new one's one of my fav things they've done in years. not that it breaks any kind of new ground at all, but it's savage in a way they haven't been in 20 years or so.

the title track is so fucking amazing
