Guide Review - Cannibal Corpse - Kill

When you're a pioneer in a genre like Cannibal Corpse is, each album is met with ridiculously high expectations. And when you have a lineup change it makes it even tougher. Longtime guitarist Jack Owen left the band after their last album and was replaced by former member Rob Barrett.

But like all the great ones, Cannibal Corpse delivers under pressure, and their latest release ranks right up there with their best. They don't break out a whole lot of new tricks on this album, they just bludgeon you with what they do best. Devastating riffs, blistering solos and maniacal drums are played with technical precision.

It's been 10 years now that George Fisher has been the band's vocalist, and he lives up to his nickname "Corpsegrinder" on this album. His vocals are raw, angry and aggressive. Erik Rutan's production is outstanding as well. There will always be CC fans that think everything after 1995 sucks, but this album proves they still are at the top of the death metal heap in 2006.
