    I'm posting this to see how many people are into death metal and Black Metal.

    Cradle of Filth is also another great band to listen to.:bassist:

    I don't listen to Cannibal that much anymore...though "From Skin to Liquid" is a great tune.
    I might be going to see Testament to reminisce this week. :smug:
  3. i agree that from skin to liquid is good, i dont like em that much, i had a guitarist who used to listen to them alot, so they kind of grew on me though

    I prefer the more progressive variety, e.g. Cynic or Death.
    And of course our friends from the north (Scandinavia).

    Funny story time....

    I was hanging out at a friend's house one Saturday afternoon. We're in the den and he has C.C. playing on the stereo. His two year old daughter is in there with us and she's headbanging ( honestly ). Suddenly the guys wife comes walking in and yells at us:


    He turns to her and replies:

    "Shut-up woman!! That baby LOVES Cannibal Corpse!!!"

    I almost wet myself!!!

    Cannibal Corpse is like My First Death Metal Band. I thought they were cool for all of two seconds, then I moved on to other bands, stuff like Cynic, Dark Tranquility, Gorguts, ect.

    I've seen them twice, second time I was about 2 feet from them and met them after the show.
    They're very nice people.
    Webster is a hell of a good bassist.
    Unfortunately, the style doesn't leave much room for him to shine.
    He's still the backbone of the band.

    Now Soilent Green....that's some serious metal :D
    I'd say that fits the bill of death metal too. I've been listening to them a lot lately.
    Death's Sound of Perseverance was classic too.
  11. i'm listening to Death right now. just thought i'd share.

    Am I alone in saying they got so much better once they ditched Barnes? I mean... Fisher can actually keep up with the band, Barnes just occasionally released low grunts.

    Plus the musicianship/production picked up quite a bit. I can say I'm a fan. :bassist:

    Hell yeah, but I only dig the Fischer-era stuff. Cooler range of grunting and shrieks, IMO. Webster gets some licks in, and that four-finger technique of his has really gotta be seen in action to be appreciated as he doesn't get much play on the albums (generally speaking). Too bad they've been in the heady process of stagnation for some time now; don't think it's gonna change much. Still, they're an important band to listen to for people who wanna get initiated into the world of GRAWR! :D

    Agreed!!!! Barnes just pissed me off. He just started singing where he wanted. Fisher on the other hand sings where it fits. I think that has more to do with the other band members writing lyrics now. When Barnes was in the band he wrote nearly ALL the lyrics.
    I still love Cannibal Corpse. Yes, there are other bands i like more but CC still do it for me.
    One hell of a bassplayer too IMO.
    I think Pat O'Brien has added alot to the band too. He has added a whole new dimension of song writing since joining the band on "Gallery Of Suicide".

    Another fan here - I've seen 'em live three times. Crazy stuff - those guys are as dedicated as they come.

    Vile is probably my favourite album.

    What I love about metal bands like CC is in concert, they sing about the most disgusting stuff w/ the most agressive music, yet they still thank the fans. I mean all bands should be very greatful to their fans, but it's like

    I just **** your eyeball socket with my knife

    Thanks guys, we really love you, keep supporting metal.

    That's exactly it. Most underground metal musicians are the nicest people you'll ever meet, bar none.

    I've met a whole bunch of 'em and most of them are genuinely interested in mingling with their fans. It's great.

    In how many other scenes do you see this happening?

    I've only heard the stuff with Barnes. Although the blast beats get old kind of fast, you gotta love that main decending riff in Hammer Smashed Face -- it's pretty badass.

    I haven't heard any of the recent stuff with the new singer...I should check it out.
