      Cannibal Corpse's first live album (2000).

      I'm not a fan of Cannibal Corpse, but I was pleasantly surprised by this live album, which really does capture the band at its best and demonstrates that they aren't just a gimmicky, talentless, overrated band. They're still mainly that, obviously, but being drawn into this live experience, the relative lack of interesting or inherently enjoyable music doesn't become such an issue.

      I have to commend the band on its commitment to the live performance, something I honestly didn't expect after the frankly lazy quality of much of their studio output. Songs are sped through to great appreciation from the crowd, and a wide range of material is covered that allows Corpsegrinder to further prove his superiority to Chris Barnes by tackling the early works such as 'Meat Hook Sodomy' and the classic 'Hammer Smashed Face.' Corpsegrinder is also amusingly frank about the subject matter, introducing track four by stating, "this song's about shooting blood out of you c**k."

      With an hour's worth of music (though that term is perhaps open to debate), this is better value for money than the typical Cannibal Corpse album that runs to half of that, and the more aggressive take on formerly lifeless, endlessly repetitive studio tracks makes this a much more enjoyable and worthwhile purchase than anything else Cannibal Corpse has released, even if I'd still prefer you to check out other death metal bands first.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Brutal, heavy, technically fantastic, and live!

      Wow!
      "Live Cannibalism" is an amazingly powerful live album, by the gods of death metal themselves, and you get just what you'd expect; a truely brutal performance, insanely accurate technical guitar playing and blast beats on drums, and George Fisher's unique low growl.
      For a live performance, the quality is good as well, no unwanted sound distortion, just the right level of audio mix between the band and the crowds noise, and everything cuts through cleanly so it doesn't just sound like noise.
      For lovers of death metal, this is definately a must have. Not only do you get a selection of some of the bands best songs, from "Staring Through The Eyes Of The Dead" to "Hammer Smashed Face", but you get to see just how talented these guys are live.


      SONG BREAKDOWN

      1. Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead
      Very heavy song, slower than some, but with the trademark blast beat drums, and meaty, technical riffs. A shredding solo near the end of the song and a final scream from Fisher finish it off.

      2. Blowtorch Slaughter
      A much faster, very heavy song with brutal lyrics. A bridge of speed picking and slow pounding lyrics breaks the song up, before a shredding solo from both guitarists, and a fast end to the song.

      3. Stripped, Raped and Strangled.
      The intro builds up into the verse which is fairly slow as far as Cannibal Corpse go. A mix of heavy riffs and blast beats take this song through a short breakdown and finally to the sudden end.

      4. I Cum Blood
      "This next song, is about shooting blood out of your cock!"
      Another Cannibal-Corpse-esque brutal, vulgar track, with meaty riffs, blast-beat drums and lyrics worthy of their own censoring office.

      5. Covered With Sores
      Melodic (In the death metal sense) riffs and pounding drums make this song a winner. Vulgar lyircs, yet again, as what else can you expect from the kings of death themselves?

      6. Fucked With A Knife
      A song for the ladies.
      The track immediately starts with an insane riff and fast blast drums. it's very fast all the way through, and quite a short song, but still one of my favourites.

      7. Unleashing the Bloodthirsty
      A slow, meaty start leads to some quick speed-picking and a heavy verse. Some quite slow, stomping sections, and some very fast lyrics form a contrast in this song which makes it one of the more interesting tracks.

      8. Dead Human Collection
      Another very fast song, with very metal riffs that don't give you a break 'till the very end of the song.

      9. Gallery of Suicide
      A harmonious intro (or as harmonious as they get, at least!) leads to a fairly slow, heavy song, with the fast blast sections to create contrast. A short but insane solo near the end makes a nice touch to finish the song.

      10. Meat Hook Sodomy
      Very fast drums accompany very technical riffs which can be counted as shredding in themselves. Short slow sections provide contrast and break the song up. A short breakdown near the end creates tension in the song that explodes back into the quick ending to the song.

      11. Perverse Suffering
      Another fast track that's not for the faint hearted, another incredible show of just how fast human feet can move, and more face melting riffs with pinched harmonics enough to make you cry.

      12. The Spine Splitter
      "He'll break your f***ing back... The spine splitter!"
      Heavy and brutal, as you might expect by now. Some excellent guitar work in the middle of the song, very fast scales played by both guitars in harmony.

      13. Gutted
      Literally.
      Relentless blast beats pound through this song, with challenging riffs and fantastically horrible lyrics.

      14. I Will Kill You
      I always remember this track, as a German guy went onto their version of The X-Factor, and sang/screamed this to the judges. They were not too impressed; evidently it has a limited audience.
      Catchy guitar lines, and pressing blast drums make this a great song.

      15. Devoured By Vermin
      The first song from the vile album, this song is immensely heavy, unbelieveably fast, with complicated riffs, with yet another great shredded solo. This track demonstrates well the range of Fisher's vocals.

      16. Disposal Of The Body
      Shredding and tapping make up the extremely technical riffs in this song. Another insane solo, and a long drawn out ending.

      17. A Skull Full Of Maggots
      A fast, lone guitar introduces this song, followed by trademark blast beats and heavy riffs.
      There's a certain riff in this song near the start, that has an incredibly evil feel to it.

      18. Hammer Smashed Face
      The last track, and one to listen for. A fast track with a short catchy breakdown followed by some insane harmonics. A nice end to the album.

      Highlights of the album IMO?
      "I Cum Blood" and "Fucked With A Knife" are really something on this, but really, if you're a fan of Cannibal Corpse then the whole album is a highlight! Unfortunately it doesn't have my favourite Cannibal Corpse track but never mind, if you like 'em, go out and find "Pounded Into Dust".
