Cannibal Corpse are the grandfathers of gory brutal death metal, and a large part of the Florida scene of the nineties. For this album, they have stuck to their guns and created another masterpiece of gutteral, brutal death metal.
Some critics of this album have said that they are just rehashing the same album again and again, which I think is quite harsh. I don't see why a band should have to re-invent themselves with every release, because in my opinion, if it ain't broke, then don't fix it.
The opening track is my favourite off this album, it literally leaves your ears smoking. Corpsegrinders vocals seem (to me anyway) to have progressed into almost subhuman territories on some of his screams too! Killer!!
Also, the DVD is a cool bonus too, and lets you see the behind the scenes stuff you never usually get to.
Go get it!!

Excellent album played by great musicians. Great lyrics not to be taken too seriously think of it as horror music. Just got in to the band and cant stop buying their albums this is one of the best.

For all those who have never heard Cannibal Corpse, be warned. Once you listen to thier music, there is no going back. It is the most heavy, most technical, and most incredible aural experience you are ever likely to have. Yes, it is sick, yes, it is brutal, and yes, it is graphic, but that is the point. Anyone who has ever doubted this band need only watch the bonus "making of..." DVD. Here you can see exactly how much effort, and how much passion goes into creating thier music, and that Cannibal Corpse are one of the most tallented bands in the world. "The Wretched Spawn" is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best work that Cannibal Corpse have produced, with the 100mph fury of tracks like "Severed Head Stoning" and "Frantic Disembowelment", and the slow, pounding battery of "Festering in the Crypt", this album has it all. If you are at all into death metal, you have to buy this CD. It is, put quite simply, the definition of death metal.

This is probably the best CC album around. It sounds crisper, cleaner and heavier than its predecessors, thanks to better production and has better arrangements and songwriting than what has come from the band since. This is not Cannibal Corpse by numbers as is suggested by one reviewer on this page. It is fair to say that the songs are very well written, they always sound fresh and original and the musicianship really is top notch. A very fine album indeed.

The Wretched Sawn contains plenty of twisted riffing and brutal death metal, but for some reason this album seems to be less than the sum of it's parts. The album is bookended by two fairy generic and uninspiring Cannibal Corpse-by-numbers tracks, but elsewhere Alex Webster and Pat O'Brian provide some great tracks, from the moody title track to the frantic Cyanide Assassin. Unfortunately the rogue element seems to be Jack Owen, as while his songs contain some catchy riffs they all seem to be mid-tempo plodders that suck the aggression and pace out of the album - it comes as no surprise to see the guitarist has now quit the band citing lack of desire. By no means awful, The Wretched Spawn is still a good record - but Cannibal Corpse have made so many great records that this may well be the least essential album they've ever released.
NB: If you can find it, make sure you get the version with the bonus DVD, which contains plenty of interviews and song performances (the performance of Frantic Disembowelment is so jaw-droppingly technical you'll wish they'd kept it as an instrumental).

That's the way death metal should be. Fast! brutal! grinding!
Plus it's a violet vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Good adding to my original cd/dvd box set.
