Review Summary: Just another deathcore band with nothing special to offer, Waking The Cadaver will quickly be forgotten in this quickly growing genre.

This is one of the most boring bands I've ever heard in me life. Waking The Cadaver, based out of the underground scene of New Jersey. Combining simple breakdowns, common "deathcore" vocals, and riffs that require no talent, these guys attract all the guys and girls I know who attempt to be brutal, but know nothing of bands such as Cryptopsy, Death, and Carcass. But I'm not here to bash on them. Let's get down to the music.


Waking The Cadaver's lineup consists of:
Don Campan: Vocals
Dennis Morgan: Drums
Nick Palmateer: Guitar
Jerry Regan: Guitars
Steve Vermilyea: Bass

I was first acquainted with this band when my friend told me of the "br00talness" of this band. I went onto the band's myspace, and listened to the song Chased Through The Woods by a Rapist. I thought the intro was pretty cool, with a man talking about killers and how they're different. And then the music comes in, and oh boy, was that an experience. The singer sounds worse than the lead singer from Job For A Cowboy, and that's pretty hard to do. The guitars consist of simple "jun jun jun" palm muted riffs. But I must admit, the second breakdown in this song did make me nod my head a little, kinda catchy. At one point, the singer even sounds like he is say "SHREDDED WHEAT!", I thought it was hilarious. But then it all goes downhill from there. The double bass in the end of the song is pretty quick, but nothing special. It's also a good thing that this song is under 3 minutes, as is the next song. I'd give this a 1.5/5.

The next song, Blood Splattered Satisfaction, is even worse than the first one. The song starts off with some drum wankery, and very bland riff comes in. The singer starts breeing and makes the song unlistenable. The riffs are also very repetitive in this song, as are the breakdowns in both songs. I can't say any more, good or bad, about this song. It's a 1/5.

I'm really hoping that this is a subgenre that will just fade away. It's ruining the face of metal everywhere. By the way, on the band's myspace, there is a video for Blood Splattered Satistfaction. Check it out if you like gore and music with no substance.

If Bring Me The Horizon and a very, very dumb toad had a baby, it would be Waking The Cadaver....

This is pretty badly written. Its way too short. You don't really describe anything such as 'drum wankery' doesn't give me an idea of what it sounds like.

Chased Through The Woods... lyrics
I like to chew on gum
I like to color paint
I'd like to feel your arm
I like shredded wheat
I like shredded
Shut up shredded
I don't like rice
Except for the white
Don't touch my rice
My rice
Wheat
Shredded wheat
Shreddeded wheat
Shredded
Shredded
Shredded
Shredded
Shreddeded
Never fuck with my wheat
Or rice
My rice
Please please please please please

I think it was mostly written quite well. I agree with everything you said, but you didn't go into enough detail about Blood Splattered Satisfaction. But it's a short demo so it only merits a short review.

Heh if you look on myspace videos for these guys there is a really funny vid about some guy who tried to understand the lyrics to "Chased through the woods..."

yep very annoying. seems like beatdown after beatdown with no direction.

and pig squealing is possibly the most annoying thing about in music at the moment.

They went a little overboard with that album cover... i could barely read that at all... i looked at it for a little bit and still can't find the word "the" in it. but if this band is bad... then i doubt i'll get around to checking them out.

These guys are terrible. The drummer is also one of the worst I've heard in a very, very long time.

This band is only good for the ridiculousness of it; otherwise, they are absolutely horrid.

I wanna listen to this just to see how bad it really is. And maybe get a few laughs. I love it how you cant even read the band name on the cover.

I really dont think they are that bad, if they change some stuff up then they could be decent, but your right the instruments could be played by 5 year olds and the that is the vocal syle, they arent supposed to be understood but they kids who think they are brootal are hillarious

i seriously think this album is horrible. the band gets tossed around in sentences with despised icon and job for a cowboy but waking the cadaver's songs are more bland than job for a cowboy's worst. i seriously see no redeeming factor. the drums are sloppy, the bass is nonexistent, the guitars bland and the vocals are AWFUL. and worse is the large number of people who think this is "br00tal".
