Cannibal Corpse - Evisceration Plague
I wish they had a better drummer, and a less idiotic singer.
I think their drumming is a secret-sauce reason why CC hit with such a wider audience compared to their contemporaries. They hit a sweet spot of being brutal but also palatable enough to attract milder metal fans for whom CC is a unique walk on the wild side. Like the difference between a sledgehammer and a jackhammer. Basically, I think he's good in the precise way that CC needs him to be good. And George is just funny.
That's an interesting theory. I'd buy it! I still think he sucks. George is definitely funny, in a laugh-at-him, not laugh-with-him way. I saw him at a show threaten unkind moshers with the "club sandwich," which threat he issued while holding up his clenched fist (presumably his knuckle sandwich is served with three slices of bread and some bacon.)

Cannibal Corpse is a top 3 band for the bassist in Pharaoh, which is one of the many stupid reasons I've seen CC live so many times. Like, at least 10!!! Why me, Lord? Why me?
