Best Cannibal Corpse Albums


The Top Ten

1 Tomb of the Mutilated Tomb of the Mutilated

Tomb of the mutilated has to be number one... how can you think of Cannibal Corpse and not think of I C** Blood or Hammer Smashed Face? Chris Barnes on this album is at his finest and at his darkest.

The production makes this the heaviest sounding Cannibal album, & Barnes vocals were lower & grittier than ever.

I love this album. It had such a dark and gloomy sound, and the way Chris Barnes growled the vocals was simply awesome. Definitely their best album.

Actual sound of cannibal corpse. Most brutal album ever.

2 Bleeding Bleeding

By far the best riffs, drum beats and vocals on this album. Plus the production is mint thanks to scott burns. With the addition to rob barrett I think that he somewhat changed the bands ways a bit on this album also.

This album brings some of cannibal corpse's greatest songs like stripped raped and strangled, f***** with a knife and many others.

The quality of this album is outstanding, some of the best songs of cannibal corpse are on this album and with it some of the most memorable riffs.

Best songs are The Bleeding, Pick-axe Murders and Pulverized.. Barne's screams in these songs are just outrageous.

3 Butchered at Birth Butchered at Birth

The first 4 were the best hands down!

The best brutal death metal album

Underrated! This is Cannibal's most disturbing album, has the goriest artwork, has the best lyrics...and of course, "Meat Hook Sodomy", which is easily the most underrated song from the Barnes era.

Also kinda disappointed to see The Wretched Spawn down so low. That was my favorite Corpsegrinder album. - ThatStrangeKid42

4 Kill Kill

As a late bloomer to Cannibal Corpse this just blew my head clean off! Love the speed, the vocals, the groove! Straight to the point old school Brutal Death Metal!

This album I keep coming back to. As a full album listen at home, out an about, wherever it just rules. Very dynamic. Sounds the best too.

The technicality, brutality, and overall sound of "Kill" are unmatched by anything else out there.

Best album since the new formation

5 Torture Torture

Torture and Kill are the most energic and the most really brutal albums of Cannibal Corpse. Honestly, I don't understand how people can prefer Chris grumbling than Georges powerful grunts. The only weak of this album is the artwork, less amazing than their old covers

The new album is badass and brutal.

Excellent musicianship here packed with great production, fantastic album.

6 Eaten Back to Life Eaten Back to Life

One of the major old school pure death metal album and this album I think was the major change for the death metal to real guttural growling and I think its the best cc album but I don't think they have bad album all albums are great in a way or other but this one is the best (my opinion)

I love this album! Chris sounds better than ever here and the songs sound more like thrash with growled vocals and since thrash is my fav genre, it's perfect! By the way, why is Butchered At Birth so high? Has to be Corpses worst album along with Vile.

An album that proves even the simplest riffs can be the most effective

Eaten Back to Life is the definitive Cannibal Corpse album. It's just so good! - Oliwally

7 Vile Vile

Devoured by vermin and orgasm through torture are among my favourite cannibal corpse tracks.

I voted just because it's too low on this list. Its definitely top 5

This is the most cannibal corpse album, it's dark, dirty and Vile. it must by my best death metal album ever!

Great songs but some fillers, especially in the second part of the album. But From skin to liquid, I will kill you, Disposal of the body, Sentenced to burn and the title track are amazing brutal!

9 Evisceration Plague Evisceration Plague

So people think this is their worst album? What the hell? This is, in my opinion, the best Death Metal album ever written!

This is the album that converted me to Cannibal Corpse! And I'm still trying to find one that sounds as good as this one. I'm new to the band so all their albums are a little overwhelming.

Evisceration Plague is their best album in my opinion. I'm kinda dissapointed.

10 A Skeletal Domain A Skeletal Domain

Bought it day one, and it was worth every penny! The production is cleaner, which some people might not like, but for me, it actually makes the whole album sound heavier and darker: you can hear every note Alex makes on his bass, which is amazing considering how great his bass tracks are, the drums sound great and the guitars have a good crunchy and brutal sound. Corpsegrinder's growls are still amazing, and he shines throughout the whole album, giving you the need to growl along, especially on the opening track, the lines HIGH VELOCITY IMPACT SPLATTER are stuck in my head since I've listened to it. Among their best work!

One of the darkest Death Metal albums, next to scream Bloody Gore and Gateway To Annihilation. - GREYBOYY

Great album it is low on this list!

This album made me buy 5 (yes BUYING FIVE) other CC albums! It has such a great and clear production. I really can't understand at all why people aren't complaining about the production of CC albums in general. Alex is such a monster on the bass and here you can actually hear it! I just love to hear whats acually going on at those instruments and you totally can on this one.
I remember buying "Kill" one week later and how disappointed I was. The mix of such a technically talented band doesn't need to sound like mud!
And guys, I believe they never had a song stucking in my head as much as KILL OR BECOME! Even if this isn't my favourite.

The Contenders

11 Wretched Spawn Wretched Spawn

Why is it only 10? I personally think its helluva good album

Two of cannibals beat guitarists on one album, what more can you ask for?

My favorite Corspegrinder album. "Frantic Disembowelment" and the title track are beasts of brutality. - ThatStrangeKid42

12 Bloodthirst Bloodthirst

I have been listening since day 1 and this is my personal favorite. They got everything perfect.

This is the best... George's vocals are insane and riffs are great. Older albums are overrated.

This album always is my most played of my Corpse collection.

Their best album to my opinion, very underrated!

13 Gore Obsessed Gore Obsessed

Although it may not contain a great deal of notably memorable tracks, it still has some, such as "Pit of Zombies" and "When Death Replaces Life". However, the memorability of the tracks aside, this album is still Cannibal Corpse's strongest, most consistent offering to date. I think it's safe to say that it's only contenders are probably 'Bloodthirst' and 'Eaten Back to Life', but even they fall in the wake of 'Gore Obsessed'.

A far too often overlooked gem. Hatchet to the Head, Dormant Bodies Bursting and Drowning in Viscera are all gems. Very heavy, but still somewhat accessible to a more casual listener (like myself). Should be higher.

GREAT album with a BAD production!

14 Worm Infested EP Worm Infested EP

I'm kind of surprised that this is in last place. I know it's an EP, so there's not as much material, but for me it's 23 minutes of pure eargasms. Demons night is one of my favorite CC songs, and no remorse is the best Metallica cover ever made.

15 Hammer Smashed Face EP Hammer Smashed Face EP

Why is this too low chris has the best vocals in here. This should be no. 5
