Cannibal Corpse Review
MetalBlade Records (2000) CD, DVD, VHS
Cannibal Corpse's 2000 Live Recording of "Live Cannibalism" is perhaps the best recording the band has ever produced. Recorded Live at "The Rave" in Milwaukee, WI on the bands "Death Metal Massacre 2000" tour, Live Cannibalism is an unforgettable 18 song performance.
While all of their albums are magnificent examples of the most extreme music the death metal genre has to offer, Cannibal Corpse's Live performances are absolutely second to none. "Live Cannibalism" captures all the fierceness and energy Cannibal Corpse is famous for, and the band plays each song to brutal perfection.
Beginning with the Albums opening song "Staring Through The Eyes Of The Dead", lead singer George 'Corpsegrinder' Fisher shows why he is widely acknowledged as the greatest vocalist in the Death Metal genre. "They Said I Have Died.. I Still Feel Alive " sings Corpsegrinder in a death metal growl that would be certain to give nightmares even to original Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes.
Cannibal Corpse's music is heavy as any and fast as can be. At times its so fast and wildly agressive that it seems about to careen wildy out of control at any second, only to shit gears in a instant with one of their signature tempo changes, and assualt the mind with yet another wickedly vicious cycle of deadly riffs.
The blast beats are the sickest ever recorded, and Paul pounds them out with deadly precision in Cannibal Corpse classics like "I Cum Blood", "Meat Hook Sodomy" and "Fucked With A Knife", while guitarists Pat O'Brien and Jack Owen through down the wickedest riffs and trade mind destroying solos. Bassist Alex Webster adds his trademark bass solos to "Fucked With A Knife" and "Hammer Smashed Face", no easy feat considering those songs are already brutally pummeling the listener with Cannibal Corpse's trademark resureccted zombie intensity.
Available on CD, DVD, VHS, and Limited Edition Digipack DVD this is definitely one Live Album you don't want to miss.
