Cannibal Corpse sometimes don't get enough credit. Sure they aren't that technical or anything, and they are practically like a novelty. One thing they do though, and do well, is put on a concert. They always seem to give a 100% performance, and this album really shows it.
First off, the production of this live album is very well done, everything is heard loudly enough, and all the instruments and the vocals are mixed well, so you can hear everything with the same ease. Corpsegrinders vocals on this are absolutely killer, he growls and screams with the best of them, and in a live setting it seems all the more punishing. He also isn't always using the same type of growl, sometimes it will be more guttural and sometimes they will be fairly high pitched, so it is nice to hear is range, George really knows how to deliver.
Cannibal Corpse, like I said may not be very technical, but they also write fairly catchy riffs that are most of the time just plain fun to listen to, from 'Fucked with a knife' to 'Hammer smashed face' they just keep on giving it to you, one after another, heavy riff after heavy riff. On this album, they sound pretty close to how they do in the studio, it's a little more sloppy at times of course, but that doesn't matter because that is what comes with every live album, you just have to sit there, enjoy and bang your head like crazy. The same can be said for the bass, it's played well and always delivers.
The drumming on this album is of course very fast and sounds great, and also really provides the full sound that the band needs to be effective, there is a lot of different speed when it comes to the drumming, but most of the time it blazes ahead as fast as anything you have ever heard and the double bass sounds absolutely fantastic.
Song highlights are probably 'I cum blood' 'Gallery of suicide' and of course the Corpe classic 'Hammer smashed face' that song will always sound awesome no matter who is doing the vocals, and George of course punishes you with the song the way Chris would have in the old days. This is a great album for fans of CC to get, or people who want to get an idea of what they sound like, it's like a best of in a live setting.
