Cannibal Corpse have no lack of gory, hair-raising and head-spinning entries in their equally revered and reviled oeuvre but 1991’s Butchered at Birth might just take the cake. From the iconic, if frequently censored, cover art by Vince Locke, to blunt-forced classics like “Meathook Sodomy,” “Living Dissection” and “Vomit the Soul,” Corpse’s second album captures the Tampa-via-Buffalo death-metal trailblazers at their sharpest and most sadistic.
Butchered at Birth is when Cannibal Corpse became the most revolting band in existence. The Florida band’s second album, released by Metal Blade in 1991, captures their transition from putrid thrash act to full-on death metal monsters. Then-frontman Chris Barnes’ vocals attain his signature gurgle; the riffs are down-tuned and smothered in savage distortion; and the lyrics and cover art, both nauseatingly violent, earned Cannibal Corpse the level of shock and disgust that gave them their repugnant pedigree within death metal’s pantheon.
