Intense, mind-numbing brutality, yep Cannibal
Corpse is back! “Kill” is the aptly named, tenth full-length
disc for these metallers…every track has to do with their well know
lethal style lyrics. As always, there are many astounding brutal riffs,
blistering solos, and deep guttural death vocals. Totally brutal! What else
would you expect? It’s Cannibal! Guitars squeal with the sounds of
a goose getting crushed to death; like a goose’s neck having pressure
applied with your foot. Blast beats sound of a well in tuned dragster. Listen
to it go! Both contribute to the vicious and furious technique felt throughout.
Add to that the brutal and extreme vocal stylings of the Corpsegrinder and
you get another first-rate death metal disc from Cannibal Corpse. There
are really a host of positively charged tunes including “Make Them
Suffer.” “Five Nails Through The Neck,” “Death Walking
Terror,” “Barbaric Bludgeonings,” and “Submerged
In Boiling Flesh.” Everything else is at least decent. Overall there
are thirteen tracks and over forty-two minutes incorporated into this disc.
Production was done by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal/ex-Morbid Angel). He did
a fine job with “Kill.” Nothing is out of place, and everything
sounds good. It can’t hurt to have someone with Erik’s death
metal knowledge producing your disc. It may be hard to believe that Cannibal
Corpse has been around for eighteen years, but their catalogue shows their
history of death metal and the band continues to add great tunes to it.
Keep up the excellent brutality!
