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.

This is the song that got me into the band, definitely not overrated - V4noM

Iconic! - Black_Abbath


It’s so good, classic masterpiece

2 Make Them Suffer

No do not let them suffer at all

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

3 I C** Blood

My favourite song along with Hammer Smashed Face But I gave this on the vote? - V4noM

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.

4 Stripped, Raped and Strangled

so sick!

! 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!

5 Evisceration Plague

Most say that this song gave me some respect for the band, I can understand the words which is a plus for me, the instrument work is so much more technical than their earlier works, which just sounds like a bunch of noise with squeals played over it - germshep24

My math playlist. - Mandude2122

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.

I don’t understand why so many people think Hammer Smashed Face is the best song from Cannibal Corpse. The voice of Chris Barnes in that song is so quiet and lacks the power that George Fisher has.

6 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

One of their best songs!

8 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.

This is a great mosh pit song - christangrant

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).

9 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

The Contenders

11 Frantic Disembowelment

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

15 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. ]

26 Unleashing the Bloodthirsty

It's so brutal and technical, the length is correct and the solo guitar is just perfect

A complete abandon of lameness. This song has intricate guitar riffing and represents the pinnacle of the Bloodthirst album which is arguably the very best Cannibal album

This song was on a beavis and butthead video - Sabbath

28 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

38 The Bleeding

The very best song by Cannibal. Complete in all essential death metal ingredients. Well composed and shows the solid song writing capacity of the band. The final riff is sincerely one of the best ever. If listened to closely, it changes slightly from measure to measure... Evolving. Simply amazing. Turn away from living mortals...

39 Murder Worship

Good song. Good riff towards the end. I'm a sucker for the simplest stuff. Its not over used in the song, and one looks forward to it. True fans know!

40 Post Mortal Ejaculation

This is one of the most off kilter, unique songs in the genre. It sounds so atypical from the rest of the album; it has almost like a Halloween vibe.

Badass opening riff. One of my favorite Cannibal Corpse songs.

41 Gallery of Suicide

Number two behind 'Death Walking Terror' and just ahead of 'Make them suffer', how good is the KILL album?!

You just HAVE to sing along when they start the "Time to Kill Is Now" growls...
