Intense, Raw, Brutal and one of CC's best!!! - 95%

the_MoRTiCiAN, November 9th, 2003

Butchered at Birth is an excellent death metal album and one of Cannibal Corpse’s best. It comes from a time when CC and Chris Barnes were at their most brutal. The vocals, the lyrics and even the CD cover art are super brutal. This often caused CC to be banned from playing in many countries and their records (including cover art) censored beyond belief.

This record is full of awesome death metal and is second only to “Tomb of the Mutilated” in raw brutality. An excellent release recommended to all death metal fans, and a must own for all CC fans.

The record starts of with the menacing Meet Hook Sodomy, which has one of the most vicious and brutal sounding intros of all time. From there, the record picks up a voracious pace (Living Dissection, Covered with Sores and Butchered at Birth), pummeling the listener with raw blast beats, heavy riffs, and intense growling that could make a zombie shit its pants!!!

Best Tracks include:

Meet Hook Sodomy, Gutted, Covered with Sores, Butchered at Birth and Rancid Amputation!!
