Cannibal Corpse were formed in Buffalo, New York, in 1988 and despite virtually no mainstream media exposure, they have gone on to become the biggest selling death metal band of all time. After gigging locally and recording a five track demo, the band were picked up by Metal Blade Records who issued their debut album Eaten Back to Life in August 1990. With tracks such as Edible Autopsy and A Skull Full of Maggots, and gory sleeve artwork to match, Cannibal Corpse courted controversy from the word go. Later years would see their albums censored and banned in many parts of the world, most notably in Germany where for a lengthy period they were prohibited from performing material from albums up to and including Tomb of the Mutilated. 1991â€™s Butchered at Birth followed a similarly explicit path to their blood-soaked debut and saw the band quickly begin to build a rabid cult following in the underground. Tomb of the Mutilated (1992) and The Bleeding (1994) continued their success, the latter remaining the bandâ€™s best-selling album to date. As a mark of their growing notoriety, 1994 also saw the band perform a brief cameo appearance in the movie Ace Ventura: Pet Detective alongside actor Jim Carrey.
1996â€™s Vile marked the debut of new vocalist George â€˜Corpsegrinderâ€™ Fisher who was drafted in to replace the sacked Chris Barnes. Vile was the first death metal album to appear on the Billboard 200 chart, debuting at no. 151. Although their line-up has undergone slight changes from time to time, subsequent years have seen them sticking to their basic formula with only slight technical refinements and continuing to be one of the most popular bands in the genre. Gallery of Suicide (1998), Bloodthirst (1999), Gore Obsessed (2002), The Wretched Spawn (2004) and Kill (2006) all bear the trademark Cannibal Corpse sound, offering visceral horror stories with a savage soundtrack to match. The bandâ€™s most recent studio album, 2009â€™s Evisceration Plague, entered the Billboard 200 chart at no. 66, the highest opening position of their career.
