      Cannibal Corpse's third album (1992)

      Loathe it or remain indifferent to it, 'Tomb of the Mutilated' is the definitive Cannibal Corpse album, and the one on which all of their later, increasingly lazy successes are based. The production has improved, the death metal riffs are louder, the band actually seems content to write well-structured music for a change, and most importantly of all: those song titles are now so ludicrously attention-seeking that I feel embarrassed having to censor them for a public website.

      Death metal fans will probably enjoy this album, but not as much as they'd enjoy many of the earlier and later bands with a great deal more creativity. To accuse Cannibal Corpse of relying on the shock value of their lyrics and album art over actual musical content would be an accurate observation, but fortunately this album goes some way towards striking a balance, and is acclaimed as a classic of the genre by many death metal fans.

      While the repetitiveness of the songs and the derivative playing styles don't allow me to praise it to that extent, there are still some choice cuts on here, and the album's infamous popularity is also significant in spreading other, better death metal to the masses. If they have the stomach for it. An unfortunate consequence is that the guttural roars and monstrously down-tuned guitars here were undoubtedly one of the key players in kick-starting the "brutal" death metal sub-genre, which occasionally offers wicked surprises but is mostly a bloated, festering corpse with, like, maggots in it and things. See, anyone can write this stuff.
