Since the release of their first album Haunted in 1995 death metal icon and forefather Chris Barnes and company have created some of the most stand out songs among the death metal community today. Originally started as a side project by then Cannibal Corpse lead throat Chris Barnes along with Obituary guitarist Allen West, Death's Terry Butler and drummer Greg Gall quickly turned it into a full time band after Chris' departure from Cannibal Corpse that same year. Since then the band has been regarded as one of the world's most respected groups in extreme music. In 1998, guitarist Steve Swanson of the seminal death metal act Massacre joined the fold replacing West. His contribution would mark a significant turning point. And with the release of 1999's Maximum Violence, the world beyond metal took notice. Tours with Danzig and a stint on the 2000 Vans Warped Tour (an honor usually reserved for the Punk Rock elite) followed, making Maximum Violence their most successful release to date.
So sit back and prepare to have your face ripped off by what is sure to be the death metal album of 2003!
