Buffalo, New York-based death-metal legend Cannibal Corpse has been going strong for more than two decades now, longer than many of its younger fans have been alive. That, however, is the beauty of this style of music — and of Cannibal Corpse in particular. As long as there are fresh crops of youngsters hell-bent on exorcising their demons and pissing off their parents, this band will live forever. As might be expected from its name, the act has never shied away from exploring the grim, gory and gruesome in its lyrics, and it favors a sound that is intentionally ear-shatteringly loud and lightning-fast. With so many current and former Warped Tour types now trying to imitate extreme metal, it's refreshing to see legends of the genre carrying it out properly: no holds barred and ugly as ever.
