4.0 out of 5 stars Competent British Death Metal. 1 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Death shall Rise is Cancer's second album. Its a marked improvement on "To the Gory End", mainly because of the production (Scott Burns at Morrisound).
The album kicks off with a ghostly death chime that blasts into "Hung Drawn & Quatered". Glen Benton of Deicide provides backing vocals and the peice is a good opener. The good thing about Cancer is that you can actually understand the lyrics, which helps.
"Tasteless Incest" chops and changes the tempo constantly. Its a pity that ex Death/Obituary guitarist James Murphy hasn't more to offer in the solos on this album, as all are perfection, but could have been plucked straight off Obituary's "Cause of death".
"Burning casket" is again a mid tempo song. I don't really like it coz of the basic lyrics. Theres only so much gore you can put up with.
The title track Is excellent, with hints of Deicide thrown in. Yet again the solos could have been straight off "Cause of death".
The title track is a solid piece, but contains every death metal cliche to have graced the scene. 'maggots, Hell, demons, decomposition and the imortal growl of Zombies from the grave !!' The outro fade is a good touch, with a wailing (Obituary-cause of death)solo.
"Back from the dead", is brutally heavy and reminds me of Cancer's early stuff.
"Grusome tasks" is my fave on this album. It opens like a bomb going off, but comes right down. Then rips off into hyperspeed. A real head banger.
"corpse fire" didn't flick my switch coz its just death metal by numbers. Fast, brutal, boring. Same old stuff as everyone else.
"Internal Decay" is up there with Autopsy and Carcass for gore lyrics. I find that sort of stuff a bit tedius, but the music more than makes up for it. It has a very 'Deicide' feel, with stop start guitars and thumping drums.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Right Side of Metal! 13 Aug 2000
By Leaf - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Whoever that silly one-star Boy is should hide behind his Backstreet Boy Album and tell his mum that there is a Band that scares him! Cancer are DeathMetal from England, on this Album their Line-Up features James Murphy ( Obituary, Disincarnate, Testament ) and a guest Appearance by Deicide Vocalist Glen Benton. It makes me sick that Bands like Cancer get overlooked by the trendy Metal Press while loser outfits as Edge of Sanity are treaded as musical genius. This is Death Metal the Way it is ment to be, if you think of the Vocals. Musically a hard hitting Bastard between traditional Speed/Trash and Florida-Style Death Metal. Sounds good! Indeed it is! Buy this Album if you can get it.

I was recently going through some of My CD's and I came across this album: CANCER "DEATH SHALL RISE".It had been a very long time since I last heard this album so I decided to put the disc in and Crank up the volume and here is what I found:A fantastic Death Metal album that is really solid from start to finish. Produced by Scott Burns (CANNIBAL CORPSE and DEICIDE) this 2nd release from CANCER has an Excellent sound a very high production on the entire recording. The sound quality is absolutely crystal clear and not the least bit muddled. You can really hear each instument very well especially the drums and the double Bass pedals, and outside of the shredding guitars and vocals the Bass player can be heard very well too! With only 8 tracks this album seems to fly at a furious speed (but that is when the repeat button becomes extremely handy!!) CANCER as a Band overall have a tremendous amount of talent and if I could give an example of what they sound like it would most likely be a cross between the intricate writing, brutal vocals, and excellent solo's of: DEATH and the blinding precision and speed plus excellent "CRUNCH" rhythms of: the almighty SLAYER! Some of the major highlights from "DEATH SHALL RISE" are: track #1)"Hung, Drawn,and Quartered"(ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL LYRICS!), track #2)"Tasteless Incest"(Fantastic SLAYER style rhythms and My personal favorite track on the album!), track #4)"Death Shall Rise"(this track has a couple of really terrific guitar solos and some Jaw-Dropping double Bass work on the drums!! Great timing changes too!), track #7)"Corpse Fire", and track #8)"Internal Decay"(GREAT FINISHING TOUCH!).If You enjoy Your bands DARK,BRUTAL,AND REALLY HEAVY! then CANCER's "DEATH SHALL RISE" is an excellent album to add to Your collection!I also HIGHLY recommend this album if You enjoy listening to bands like: SLAYER,DEATH,CANNIBAL CORPSE,DEICIDE,and OBITUARY. I am really glad I took the time out to put this disc in and give it a listen! It's been a long time and I forgot what a great band CANCER was. I hope My review was helpful to You. Please check out My other reviews for more GREAT Thrash,Death,and Black Metal Bands!! LONG LIVE METAL FOREVER!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cancer : "Death Shall Rise" 19 Feb 2003
By Masked Jackal - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Very solid Death Metal. They sound very similar to Malevolent Creation at times. It's just straight forward Death Metal. No ground breaking here at all, just solid old-school Death Metal at it's best....
James Murphy on axe duties does this justice.....
If you like Death, Malevolent Creation, Massacre, and other Tampa Bay area based outfits, you'll enjoy this as well....

4.0 out of 5 stars death shall rise 28 Dec 2000
By oddity - Published on
Format:Audio CD
cancer is an interesting death metal band. not so much because of their music, but because of their career. 1n 1990, they released one of the worst death metal albums ever..."to the gory end". the songs were simple, predictable and boring, the vocals weak, the production thin, and the musicianship as sloppy as ever. then in 1991 they spewed forth "death shall rise" with killer artwork by junior tomlin, an awesome performance by session man james murphy on lead guitar,and a bone shattering production of annoyingly catchy tunes such as "hung drawn and quartered", "internal decay","corpse fire" and my favorite "tasteless incest". early 90's big name death metal producer scott burns obviously made this record what it is and succesfully took cancer from an unsigned-sounding act to one of the most respected death metal bands of that year. heres where it gets interesting...cancer followed this album up in 1993 with yet another thin, sloppy, generic and dissapointing cd titled "the sins of mankind" that sank without a trace and the band dissapeared from the american market. surprisingly, in 1995 cancer signed with eastwest/Warner Bros. UK and released "black faith" album that sounded like alice in chains! needless to say, "death shall rise" is cancer's only contribution to the metal world that is worthy of your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old school death metal at it's best!! 2 Dec 2005

I like "Death shall rise" slighty better than the "Gory end" and the other one. The John Walker's voice, in my opinion was one of the best voices in the genre on the early '90s and no talk about the genius James Murphy, you should hear the solo on "Hung, Drawn and Quartered" very melodic, and in "Back from the dead". Good album by an incredible band!!
