A decent EP - 81%

The_Philosopher, August 2nd, 2003

Hammer Smashed Face - This is like the Freebird for Cannibal Corpse. If they don't play it live, the crowd is very disappointed. I can hear why -- it manages to be very brutal, but somewhat catchy at the same time. The song runs over you like a tank, and makes you headbang. At 2.50 we have a breakdown, and it's very metal. A thrash break at 3.20. Pretty good stuff. This is still when Barnes had a good growl.

The Exorcist - Cover of the Possessed song. It's a pretty nice rendition. It will have you thrashing around for sure.

Zero The Hero - another cover, this time it is of Black Sabbath. It's kind of bizarre that Cannibal Corpse would record this kind of song, but I think they did a pretty good job. Barnes does not sing, he uses his growl, of course. This a pretty enjoyable cover song. Nothing spectacular, but then again, neither was Black Sabbath.

If you find this EP for 3 bucks or cheaper, you should get it. It's enjoyable.
