Cannibal Corpse – Evisceration Plague

Cannibal Corpse
Evisceration Plague
Metal Blade

Assuming that everyone reading this is at least somewhat familiar with Cannibal Corpse, I’m jumping right into the specifics. Evisceration Plague is much better than I expected and this is Paul Mazurkiewicz's best drum performance in years, maybe ever. Listen to his drumming on “Priests of Sodom.” Why doesn’t he do this all the time? He is still doing that fast-polka-beat thing though.

I didn’t expect Evisceration Plague to suck but everything since Gore Obsessed has been boringly similar. This is the first Cannibal Corpse record since Gallery of Suicide to actually have a personality. I chalk that up to them finally resolving their guitarist situation. The lead-playing and the soloing on this album aren’t as extraneous as on past Cannibal efforts. Simply put, it’s Cannibal Corpse and it rules. If you haven’t listened to them since the early 90s hate, now is the time to rejoin the party.
