Personally I think Corpsegrinder is better. Barnes just doesn't seem to have the same enthusiasm, still good though. I've heard a lot of people who think differently and I'd like to know why.

Poll

i am by no means a CC fan, but Barnes's vocals are INSANELY low, he sounds like a vomiting prehistoric monster or something...

i am now a CC fan, and i have to say Barnes sounds PURE FUCKING EVIL. both his insanely low gurgly stuff and his chilling shrieks.. HOLY SHIT. in fact, i dare you all to find a more evil vocal performance than on the studio version of "Fucked With a Knife"...

Chris Barnes is THE death metal voice to me! o/ The best CC albuns have his name on, too bad his name is in the mud thanks to a certain side-project

For me i like Chris in the first Cannibal Corpse albums specially "Tomb Of The Mutilated" and "The Bleeding" and i think the Torture Killer album "Swarm", but am not a Six Feet Under fan there is some good albums but.. about George Fisher i enjoyed all the Cannibal Corpse albums with him plus Paths Of Possession are amazing.. i voted for George Fisher "Corpsegrinder" becouse i like his music the most and he got the best personality though.

I like them both, but I like Barnes' albums better. I think Corpsegrinder is a better vocalist though.

Corpsegrinder is good but I think Barnes suites much better CC. He sounds much more evil and sick. Oh, and cookie monster vocals are amazing

I actually don't like DM metal vocals much though I love the music, but Barnes does WAY more with his voice than Corpsegrinder does.

I prefer Chris Barnes, but just barely. The way that he sang on their early stuff was just unreal, and I have nothing but respect for that. Still, I think everything he has done after Cannibal Corpse is pretty terrible, and his voice is in lamentable shape nowadays. Corpsegrinder, on the other hand, is still going strong, and he is a pretty good growler in his own right. So, while I think that Chris was better, I would definitely rather keep Corpsegrinder in the band nowadays.

To be honest, the only 2 albums that i really like from this band are their first two (those are actually the only 2 i have ) and at that time both Chris Barnes and Glen Benton were officially in the band...so who did the vocals?

Chris Barnes gave the signature sound to death metal vocals. He is a legend. When Chris Barnes does the highs you can never say that its the same guy, especially in the CC song "Fucked with a knife".
Corpsegrinder on the other hand has his own vocal style. To me he sounds like he is loosing his voice, but still brutal. Both are amazing but i prefer Chris Barnes

Personally i like Barnes vocals better, and he has contributed to their best albums. But Corspegrinder seems to have more energy, and better presence and has contributed to more albums so ill have to go with him

Couldn't agree more on both statements, but I think Chris is somehow a little boring.

Hell yeah man, Fisher's vocals are actually understandable, and Barnes' werent at all pretty much and thats something that made him stand out. His growls are way more righteous. Fisher's seem way too mainstream death metal.

I would have most likely said Barnes, but after hearing Six Feet Under I have lost a large amount of respect for his work. Corpsegrinder is a great death vocalist and keeps up a steady pattern of good work.
