Best Cannibal Corpse Songs


The Top Ten

1 Hammer Smashed Face

Over rated. There are much better songs than this one. For example, almost all songs on The Bleeding or Bloodthirst are much better. Yes the song is the best on Tomb of the Mutilated, but the album itself is inferior to later works. The first 3 albums are ok and innovative in the genre, but are lacking in technical prowess present in later offerings.


The rhythmic start followed by the blast beats and gore just blows your head off. This song is awesome. Just think of the labour these guys have put up!

This music is brutal, dude!

2 Make Them Suffer

very good song :) especially the intro where they sing "SUFFEEEER! " and it sounds really badass. No one can really prevail cannibal corpse in death metal.

This is their best song... And I think most brutal. Hammer smashed face is great song too... But I can't understand lyrics which singed in song..

The album kill this is one of the top 3 songs but one song called death walking terror is ahead of this one

Pure Savagery. Unleashing the Bloodthirsty needs to be on this list though.

3 I Cum Blood

I love this song. It has great guitar work and Barnes growls were amazing. Should have a higher rating.

Underrated.. Crazy lyrics. Deserves a better rating

Edgy songwriting, but the melody and brutality of the song is fantastic.

First Cannibal song I ever heard. Still the best for me.

4 F***** With a Knife

From the Bleeding album of 1994, a staple of Cannibal, mainly for the title. It is however much much more, and demonstrates the evolution of the band. The Bleeding being the 4th album, demonstrates a much more refined quality sound that the first three. The riffing on this album and this song puts the first 3 albums into the "first three albums" category.

It has to be their best because if you hear his voice it sounds like he's about to die. It's so brutal

5 Stripped, Raped and Strangled

! Stripped raped and strangled was the best song with chris barnes. I love the intro and the growls "they think they know, who I am... "

The guitar riff has a really nice groove to it, and the vocal transition, like the way it sounds, from the intro to the "I come alive in the darkness" really sounds nice

The main riff is just so evil... The vocals, guitars, bass and drums... Just bloody awesome!

Never heard of this one ill check it out

6 Evisceration Plague

This song is absolutely incredible, everything about it, the guitar riff, the drum beats. Even the lyrics are very clear and brutal. Love this song.

This song ain't so bad but still there are better songs in this album. for example priests of sodom and carrion sculpted entity

This song is the insane of insanness! You don't even know man, this song kicks buttcrack

Best death metal song ever.

7 Pit of Zombies

This song epitomizes what cannibal corpse is all about. Great guitar work. Awesome Lyrics. Drums pounding away. You would have to try hard not to like this song.

Fantastic Song, really catchy beat, amazing guitar playing, intense druming, very good vocals, definitely one of cannibal corpse's best songs without a doubt.

The song was simply amazing, the lyrics were amazing, and the vocals were some of the best I've heard from Corpsegrinder (in my opinion).

Way better than hammer smashed face and suffer.
1. The Bleeding (why is it not in the top 5 at least? )
2. Shredded Humans
3. Edible Autopsy
4. Pit of Zombies (seriously evisceration plague above this? )
5. I C** Blood
I think the beginning of hammer smashed face was cool but the rest of the song just dragged.

8 Kill or Become

This new song is too brutal!

This is corpsegrinder at his finest - ryanrimmel

About 16 riffs, all bonecrushing.

9 Sentenced to Burn
10 No Remorse

what a cover! Metallica will be proud to see this!

Nice riff... Corpsegrinder have grinded it to the beats... Amazing rhythm all over

The Newcomers

? Force Fed Broken Glass

The song starts out very hard with very little happening as far as substance, but then essentially pauses and takes new life. Another classic from the Bleeding. A fine Cannibal album!

? Return to Flesh

Great riffing here

The Contenders

11 Addicted to Vaginal Skin

Beautiful technical lines, lyrics makes things better

"I don't know
I just took that knife
And I cut her from her neck
Down to anus
And I cut out the vagina
And I ate it"


The main riff is the coolest ever! Tomb of the Mutilated is their best album. Anyone who says it isn't technical enough can go f*ck themself. This is f*cking death metal! [I put the asterisks because it won't show the words if I typed them out. ]

12 Necropedophile

Their most underrated song. Necropedophile to me is everything death metal should be. - Meatwad

This song used to make my stomach turn. Then I grew a pair.

This relates to my life in some many ways I used to have this as my ringtone at the tender age of 16 I was obsessd with the message in this song. One evening I sat down for dinner with my family when my phone rang from the room next door the room went silent my mam quickly admitted me to a mental health clinic as she was concerned for my little sister. #poetryinmotion

This one ain't so bad by cannible corpse

13 Frantic Disembowelment

Their most technical song to date... But still fast and heavy. THE BEST!

I still think this is the most aggressive music I've heard until today.

So hard to play.

Probably their fastest song ever

14 Meat Hook Sodomy

The best song from Butchered at birth

Intro to this song is freaky as hell. that's why its one of my favorites.

15 Priests of Sodom

Easily their best and most powerful song!

Brutal death metal vocals here, and some seriously relentless technical guitarplaying, what more can you ask for?

Best lyrics, riffs and solos.

Great song!

16 A Skull Full of Maggots

The best cannibal corpse song I LOVE IT BRUTAL GUITAR!

How is this not in the top 10

17 Devoured by Vermin

Why is this not in the top 10

One of their best

18 Scourge of Iron

Tell me this is a joke this song rated so less compared to other cannibal corpse songs

So underrated...just give it a listen and you will Love it

What do u call it a disgrace to this list this song so low in this list

So different than a lot of Cannibal’s past work and I feel like that makes it stand out. It takes a break from the epic speed and craziness of their usual work. Instead they made a CRUSHING death groove of a song and it SLAYS! Should definitely be rated higher!

19 Encased in Concrete

Best song by far, sounds like slayer on steroids

20 Vomit the Soul

That intro riff is just AMAZING, and the part with Glen Benton just makes it even more brutal and superior to most of Cannibal Corpses earlier stuff.

Butchered at birth are only knowledge because they album cover, but the songs need to been heared
