Cannibal Corpse

Torture (Metal Blade)

Avalanche opener "Demented Aggression" rains bloody Slayer from the cannibal holocaust, but on its dozenth splatter over the last quarter-century, this Buffalo, NY., butcher's apron masters tempo like a sure-handed blues band. From blitzkrieg ("Sarcophagic Frenzy") to chug ("Scourge of Iron"), Torture builds speed, human gristle, and institutionalization. Unforgiving ("The Strangulation Chair"), its Howitzer recoil runs molten currents of melody and rhythm. ****
