Where 'Eaten Back To Life' ripped you a new one with the speed and anger-fuelled aggression of their thrash like assault of guitars, 'Butchered At Birth' saw the evolution of the band as they down-tuned their guitars for a deeper and eviler sound, whilst Chris Barnes followed suit with plummeting his vocals to a stomach-churning, far deeper guttural growl.
The end result? Cannibal Corpse had created their very own signature sound. With 'Butchered At Birth' the band carved out their undeniable place in metal history. And what an album to do it with.
This is unquestionably one of the band's finest releases. From its ball-crushing start until to its brain-haemorrhaging finish, 'Butchered At Birth' delivers a tsunami of tightly controlled gore-soaked aggression.
Opener 'Meat Hook Sodomy' is a masterpiece of down-tuned Death Metal with some of the finest examples of red and raw guitar hooks. From here the band continues with the punishment, blasting the listener's ears out with a ferocious display of fast and furious Death Metal until 'Covered With Sours' rears its ugly head. The pace is slowed, Slayer-style riffage finds a new home, and you get to take a handful of apprehensive breaths as the songs gets itself geared-up for some absolutely incredible metal brutality. This is how it's done. What a track. What an album.Read more ›
This is CC at their death defying best. Play it loud for full effect. This ground breaking album is accompanied by some of the most imaginative artwork of the last 50 years.
'Butchered At Birth' is their 1991 sophomore release and still sounds supremely brutal: the music has a distinctly claustrophobic feel, the sick guitar tone is strangely dry (yet suffocatingly brutal) and because it lacks a deep bass sound allows the ugliness of Chris Barnes' vocals to shine through ... or at least gargle up from the gutter!
In my opinion this is one of Barnes' best vocal performances, along with that of 'The Bleeding' and 'True Carnage' (with Six Feet Under).
This album is pure death metal sickness from start to finish, with nary a chance to recover from the vileness of one song before the next onslaught of sickness begins! If you like the Death Metal-lite of Hate Eternal, Decapitation, etc this may not be to your taste.
As a bonus this album has such a sharp sound that you can crank it up REALLY loud without the bass blowing out your speakers!! :)

Ok, I had heard all about the lyrics to the Corpses music, but when I actually read them, man they scrape the bottom right out of the barrel. The music is quite good, I must admit. Read morePublished on 3 Sept. 2003
