There is a dark almost doom metal type quality to some of the guitar parts, such as those found in 'Return to Flesh', and 'The Bleeding'. There are also more time signature and tempo changes than before, and Paul Mazurciewicz' drum sound is more even in the mix, rather than overpowering.
To me this is a metal classic to be held in esteem with 'Reign in Blood', 'Heartwork', and 'Covenant', and is true genre defining stuff. The lyrics and song titles are still gory and well beyond any form of good taste, but nowhere near as much as the gruesome obscenities of Tomb of the Mutilated, with even the cover art being more subtle than before.
|Length: 2:51 Mins|
With 'Butchered At Birth' (1991) Cannibal Corpse had found their own sound and subsequently delivered a truly breath-taking record, bursting at the rafters with brutality and gore-fuelled aggression. With 'Tomb Of The Mutilated' (1992) the band pushed further with their sound, producing one of the best Death Metal albums of all time.
However, by now vocalist Chris Barnes was getting restless with the guttural niche the band had carved themselves into. Accordingly, Barnes pushed the band towards a more 'groove metal' style; edging away from the thrash and pummelling drums of the previous three albums. Similarly, for this album Barnes' vocals became more pronounced, ultimately making the words on each track far more decipherable. 'The Bleeding' was to be Barnes' final album with the band before leaving to join 'Six Feet Under' who had a musical style much closer to what Barnes had been trying to move Cannibal Corpse towards.
For 'The Bleeding' the end result is an album that sounds slightly apart from the rest of the band's back catalogue. This is most notable with tracks such as 'Stripped, Raped And Strangled' and 'Staring Through The Eyes Of The Dead', which both delivering a particularly groove-laced Death Metal sound.Read more ›
In my own humble opinion, this is the best album C.C. did with Barnes.
Yes, 'Butchered at Birth', is the sick one, and 'Tomb of the Mutilated' is the break-through one, but 'The Bleeding' marks the time the line up (plus Barrett) gelled as a unit.
The production is good, much better than the 3 previous offerings. Barnes is understandable for the first time ever (and not in that terrible Six Feet Under/ Torture Killer wobbly growl either).
Yes, they don't really make much progress in their lyrical subject matter, the general theme being murder, mysogeny and sexual torture.
I say it eveytime, for every album, but its just boring if you really take an interest in the words. Juvenile is right!!!
But, luckily Barnes isn't completely audiable, and his voice just adds that brutal human touch to the vicous metallic barrage.
If theres one complaint I have about C.C., its that their albums, as a complete unit, are pretty indistinguishable from track to track. Its the stand out tracks that get the 5 stars. On this album it has be 'Staring through the eyes of the dead', 'F*cked with a Knife', Stripped Raped and Strangled (see what I mean about the titles and lyrics??) and The pick Axe murders'.
'S.R.a.S' in particular has an awesome stereo'd twin gutiar opening.
If there is one thing about mid 90's C.C. that I can moan about, it the feeling of generic death metal the filler songs smack of. And all their 90's albums have them.Read more ›
