Following on from their brutal debut album 'Eaten Back To Life' (1990), in 1991 the legendary US Death Metal band Cannibal Corpse released their follow-up album, with the equally controversial 'Butchered At Birth'. Like with their debut release, 'Butchered' was produced by the legendary Scott Burns.

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.

Incredible! atmosphere to the music. Fantastic guitars, vocals and stunning drums. The music on this album is the musical equivelent of having your face smashed in with a sledgehammer or being driven over by a 20 ton truck. Cannibal Corpse make bands such as Slipknot, Marilyn Manson and Slayer sound like a couple of whining babies when compared to cannibal corpse's deafening guitars, drums and amazing vocals. All other So-called Death metal bands give death metal a bad name. Cannibal corpse will rock your world whether or not you like death metal. After listening to this your hooked to death metal for life. Makes you feel like you could headbang 24 hours a day. This album is total musical ecstacy for the mind it makes you feel like vandalising something like your own television set! So energetic it makes you feel literally like your heart is beating so fast that it will pop out of your chest!

Altho this a great, brutal album from the band Cannibal Corpse, 'Butchered At Birth' really isnt their best work. The riffs arnt very remember-able and the production of this album is somehow worse than their earlier work, which doesnt seem to make any sense. Its still a great death metal album and better than most from today and I still listen to it from time to time.

Just when you thought it was safe to turn the music up along comes Chris Barnes with an awesome vocal delivery.
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.

There is some pretty creepy stuff going on in this album which results in it becoming a deathmetal masterpiece. It has a great track listing, with pounding rythms which rattle through your brain at a phenominal speed so it is not for the faint of heart or those with a weak stomach for that matter. The tracks on this are superior to those on Cannibal's previous album, but they still suffer from the sluggish guitars by Rusay. This is it's only downfall with Barnes' low groans and gargles covering it up and Websters' bass bringing in the more sludgy deathmetal attitude towards the album. The titles and lyrics may be over the top but one has to cast a smile on its extremity and then relax in its musical power and malevolence.

Cannibal Corpse are routinely derided by Death Metal snobs, but the fact remains that their first 4 albums are classics of the genre.
'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!! :)
