Since 1990, with their debut "Tomb of the Mutilated", Cannibal Corpse has taken Metal in their own sick and twisted direction. The follow-up "Butchered at Birth" in 1991 solidified their place as pioneers of the death metal genre and removed any doubt as to the abilities of this band to produce sonic brutality. From the opening track Meathook Sodomy to the last song Innards Decay, Butchered was the CD that put Cannibal on the map.
Paul Mazurkiewicz lays down a relentless rapid-fire, blastbeat as the foundation of Cannibal Corpse's mountain of sound. Pat O'Brien and Jack Owen provide the complex, blazing fret board work. Alex Webster holds them all together with some of the most amazing bass lines ever recorded. And finally, Corpsegrinder... George Fisher, who replaced Chris Barnes* as the front man in 1995, has a very distinct, unmistakable (and un-processed) growl.
Cannibal Corpse has kept it together for over 15 years never losing site of their roots. You can hear their progress as musicians over the course of the bands career but they never deviate from the brutality that is Cannibal Corpse.
The 15 Year Killing Spree DVD contains a look behind the scenes during the making of The Wretched Spawn album. There is an instrumental version of Frantic Disembowelment that is worth the cost of the collection by itself.
