Before I write anything about this album I have to explain some things; I used to be a huge CC fanatic, "Tomb Of The Mutilated" and "The Bleeding" were both albums that I used to play daily and all. Then Corpsegrinder arrived and I said "fuck this is boring", I never found myself digging neither Fisher's voice, nor the material that CC released after "Vile" as for me they were just recycling their riffs and their music.

"Kill" arrived this year; my enthusiasm for hearing this album was totally bland, at the time I thought "meh, I prefer being kicked in the nuts than hearing a CC album again". But for peripheral circumstances I found myself hearing "Kill" and actually liking it, it was odd indeed, so I gave the album a shot and my thoughts about this band changed a little bit.

This album it's not as good as "The Bleeding" at all, it doesn't even get near to their early works. "Kill" it's just a useful item for the metal-heads to say "ok, we're listening", now it's time for CC to exploit what they accomplished and give us an outstanding return in the future. I could write a huge review about the music and about the songs played in this album, but it would be useless as even the guys who hear Slipknot and Nightwish know how this band sounds believe me.

So I'll just say that "Kill" is a fairly good album, I'll still be waiting for the "The Bleeding" follow-up though, at least this one it's the nearest attempt at being as great as they used to be. Don't be so picky now, give this album a try and enjoy what these guys made for us, maybe this is not what everyone expected, but it's surely better than "The Wretched Spawn" and all those sucky post-barnes discs they released.

Best Tracks: "The Time to Kill is Now", "Barbaric Bludgeonings", "Infinite Misery"

Make them suffer... The best Cannibal corpse song and the only good Cannibal Corpse song, in my opinion. I think death metal isn't music for me...

"The Quaker"
I get a sense that most hard core/ex CC fans worship The Bleeding and such early records because of the nostalgic value, and maybe to some degree to appear "cool". Don't get me wrong, those are great albums, but to me who were introduced to CC with "Live Cannibalism", most of the old stuff just doesn't compare to "Kill" for example. We can pretend being the old school prick until eternity, but, with all due respect, it just feels ignorant and dumb. Also I think "Gallery of Suicide" has some of the best songwriting they ever laid down. Corpsegrinder is hell of a lot more ornate with rhythms than Barnes ever was, and the sound clarity they have now just fits their music a ton better.

Just my 2 cents.
