Biography of Cannibal Corpse's Alex Webster
Bassist, lyricist, songwriter (1988-Present)
One of the two remaining original members of Cannibal Corpse, bassist Alex Webster is a master of his craft. Having helped composed some of the group�s most gruesome songs, Alex has a bevy of Cannibal Corpse songs credited to both his musicianship and lyricism, to include �Fucked With a Knife,� �Puncture Wound Massacre,� �I Will Kill You,� and �Unleashing the Bloodthirsty.� Renowned for his skill on the bass, Alex is one of a kind, one of the few bassists in death metal history to do bass solos, and is infamous for having recorded the most recognizable bass solo in death metal in the opening of �Hammer Smashed Face.�
Alex was originally in Beyond Death with former Cannibal Corpse guitarist Jack Owen in 1987 and joined up with the three other original members of Cannibal Corpse (Chris Barnes, Paul Mazurkiewicz, and Bob Rusay) through their band, Tirant Sin. Alex is also credited with the name of the band (brought up before their first show opening for Dark Angel). Alex has not been in another band since for reasons unknown (though practice, touring, and frequenting the official Cannibal Corpse forums could contribute). He uses Modulus and Spector basses, DR Strings, EMG pickups and Ampeg amplifiers.
