Back in Buffalo,NY
in 1989 the breaking up of two bands, Tirant Sin and Beyond Death,
resulted in the creation of a monster called "Cannibal Corpse". The
group recorded a demo in Niagara Falls, NY entitled "Cannibal Corpse",
not "Suffocation" like many of you think.
The demo caught the eye of Metal Blade Records
and the band was signed right away. The birth of "Eaten' Back To Life"
was the first step to being the GODS of death metal. Check out the
section for a complete listing of albums and song titles.
There have been several changes in the line-up throughout the bands's
history, First the departure of Bob Rusay. Listen to the first album &
you will understand why. Without Jack Owen, the guitar-playing on the
album would sound like mud. The acquisition of fellow Buffalonian Rob
Barrett, who had also played in Dark Deception, Solstice and
Malevolent Creation was a welcomed change. Rob left Cannibal Corpse in
late 97' to persue other areas.
Next came the departure of Chris Barnes who later formed his own band,
Six Feet Under. This occured during the recording of "Vile" which was,
at the time, tentatively entitled "Created to Kill". Thats where
George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher came into play. He has been a change for
the better and has done a great job in filling the shoes of a great
singer for his time.
The newest member
is Pat O'Brien, formerly of Nevermore and Monstrosity . He is by far
the best replacement they could have found.
In the past, the
700 club, Bob Dole and a lot of closed-minded people have tried
unsuccessfully to stop Cannibal Corpse in their quest to make the
heaviest, most brutal music possible. As for the future, who knows?
They will continue to make music as long as there are fans out there
who continue to support the band.
