5.0 out of 5 stars the best cc album to date, 13 Nov 2001
This review is from: Gallery of Suicide (Audio CD)
gallery of suicide is the finest album cannibal corpse have ever made. the comparisons that can be made between it and the other albums are twofold; the difference between it and all of the albums featuring chris barnes on vocals, and the superiority of it over the two other george fisher albums to date. firstly, this is george fishers crowning achievment as a death metal vocalist, and moves him beyond the likes of glen benton, john tardy and yes, chris barnes as arguably the worlds most proficient and variable death metal singer. as an example of his ability, listen to the intro from 'blood drenched execution', and ask whether you could imagine chris barnes makin a song sound that brutal. cannibal corpse are supposed to be one of the most extreme bands around, so when you here chris' lyrics, for me you expect a singer like george, not chris. vile and bloodthirst, whilst having a multitude of instant corpse classics, do not have the same barrage effect that this masterpiece has. one of the best death metal albums ever, certainly the most aurally brusing, and guaranteed to please all fans of the genre....

3.0 out of 5 stars once a classic, no more, 26 Oct 2001
This review is from: Tomb of the Mutilated (Audio CD)
tomb of the mutilated was cannibal corpses best album by some distance when released as they're third in 1992. the musicianship was superb, the lyrics more extreme, the artwork more offensive. however, when looking back and listening once more, the most obvious point raised is how much more cannibal corpse have progressed as a band. changes have been made for the better, and anyone used to the crisp, supertight riffing and solo work of pat o'brien will be let down by the occasional muddy nature of bob rusays work, although in all honesty, the progress made in production does help o'briens cause. however, the change of vocalist is the major one, and frankly, george 'corpsegrinder' fisher destroys chris barnes in the ferocity stakes. listen to hammer smashed face on this and then on live cannibalism. take note of how fisher actually sounds as though he's bothered about what he is saying, as opposed to barne's droning low growl and occasional hiss. the bass playing of alex webster, arguably the bands most proficient player now, sounds practised and promising. nowadays, the man is one of the greatest bass guitarists in the world, and i really mean that. a bassist can play for a month and have wonderwall mastered. they could play for a lifetime and not get close to websters solo on hammer smashed face. overall, buy it to remind yourselves of when you thought you could be as good as these guys. then dig out bloodthirst or gallery of suicide and start thinking again.
