It’s weird the way you can become a fan of a band. From a friend recommending them to seeing them open for another band. While I had heard and seen Cannibal Corpse before, the thing that really made me a fan was seeing their DVD Centuries of Torment. The documentary gave you a real insight on the band from its’ earliest days until a couple years ago. After seeing that I became a huge fan and like others was anxiously awaiting the release of Torture.
It was well worth the wait as Torture has to be one of their best albums. From beginning to end it is a Death Metal assault on one’s ears. It showcases the band in perfect sync with one another. From the rhythm section of Alex Wesbster and Paul Mazurkiewicz. To the dueling guitars of Pat O’Brien and Rob Barrett. They create a slab of riff heavy goodness that is both musically assaulting yet headbangingly catchy.
One of the great things about Cannibal Corpse is singer, George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher. He has unique ability to belt out the trademark guttural vocal lines while making every word very understandable. It serves as a perfect compliment to Cannibal Corpse’s trademark lyrical content of gore, murder, and other nightmarish stuff. Just listen to “Scourge Of Iron” or “As Deep As The Knife Will Go” and hear how all they all combine.
Torture is the probably the best metal album of the year. A collection of some of the best Death Metal you will ever hear. It is the perfect representation of the genre and sets the bar high for all others Metal bands.
