Cannibal Corpse re-ranked
1Cannibal Corpse
The Bleeding


The album with all their classic songs. A tidied up version of their early sound with more groove, more organized songs and more interesting musical ideas, like the slow break in Force Fed Broken Glass and some odd time signature choices. Nothing super "special" about it but all the parts fit together better than on their other albums, full of memorable moments.
2Cannibal Corpse
Bloodthirst


Amazing production and very consistent tracklist, weakest track is easily Coffin Feeder. Elsewhere there is a lot of variety, from pulverizing tracks like Dead Human Collection and Hacksaw Decapitation to mid-paced stompers like Unleashing the Bloodthirsty and The Spine Splitter, to more wrenching, twisted ones like Ecstasy in Decay and Sickening Metamorphosis. The overall standout of the Corpsegrinder albums and an all around success.
3Cannibal Corpse
Vile


The first album with Corpsegrinder and the lower tunings, Vile is another album with lots of variety and an extremely consistent tracklist. Monolith and Bloodlands stand out for their more extended, thoughtful songwriting, but honestly everything here is A class stuff. Only real issue is the production which is one of the weaker Scott Burns jobs.
4Cannibal Corpse
A Skeletal Domain


The clear standout of the Kill-onward era. Decidedly more technical, very focused and aggressive, with catchy and razor sharp songwriting. Not the most consistent (Sadistic Embodiment and Asphyxiate to Resuscitate aren't up to much), but the overall standard of quality and darker tone cement this one as the top of their more recent albums
5Cannibal Corpse
Kill


Dense, heavy and one of their most technical albums. Really takes off in the second half with tracks like Brain Removal Device and Barbaric Bludgeonings. Builds tonnes of momentum, several great tracks like Five Nails Through the Neck that help keep the first half on course before opening up into the best stuff. Not quite as good as Skeletal since some of the mid-course isn't super memorable but still a strong effort.
6Cannibal Corpse
Tomb of the Mutilated


On the way to their best material, but the riffs aren't quite as consistent and it suffers from some of the monotony of Butchered at Birth. The Cryptic Stench, Hammer Smashed Face, Beyond the Cemetary and Entrails Ripped From a Virgins Cunt really hit the spot though and in general this album has great charisma.
7Cannibal Corpse
Torture


Sometimes this album feels a little too basic for its own good after the pretty technical preceding efforts, but on its slower tracks Torture hits the spot. Intenstinal Crank, Sarcophagic Frenzy and The Strangulation Chair are clear standouts, whilst among the more standard tracks Rabid and Encased in Concrete are great, memorable efforts. There are some weaker tracks that hold this one back, particularly Crucifier Avenger and As Deep As The Knife Will Go, but one of the better CC albums
8Cannibal Corpse
The Wretched Spawn


The last of the Jack Owen albums, TWS has some of their catchiest songs and best production. They Deserve to Die and Nothing Left to Mutilate are probably some career-best songs, but it falls apart a little with some of the weaker tracks like Cyanide Assassin, Psychotic Precision, Slain, Bent Backwards and Broken. Feels a bit sloppier than some of their other albums, even on the super technical Frantic Disembowlment. Still a lot to like and some great peaks.
9Cannibal Corpse
Red Before Black


Thick and chunky, but a bit of a retreat from Skeletal Domain and some specific problems with the production (bad snare). Decent but not really much that makes me come back to it compared to the other post-Kill albums.
10Cannibal Corpse
Eaten Back to Life


Classic death/thrash with very few bells and whistles. Not the most evil or technical or nuanced, but a pretty fun album with some great riffs and classic tracks.
11Cannibal Corpse
Butchered at Birth


Compared to Eaten Back to Life this one is a bit heavier but less "fun" and somewhat inconsistent. Some great tracks, especially Rancid Amputation and Vomit the Soul, but they clearly had not found the sweetspot they found with Tomb and The Bleeding.
12Cannibal Corpse
Evisceration Plague


The weakest of the post-Kill albums, Evisceration Plague is a little too hit and miss with mediocre production. Some catchy tracks, but the abundance of very stereotypical Alex Webster tracks makes it a bit sluggish and repetitive. Great ideas on Beheading and Burning and A Cauldron of Hate, and some real standouts with To Decompose and Skewered from Ear to Eye, but a lot of very disposable material.
13Cannibal Corpse
Gallery of Suicide


To Vile what Evisceration Plague is to Kill. A couple specific standouts (title track, From Skin to Liquid, Stabbed in the Throat, Centuries of Torment), but weaker production and a lot of filler. Overall just not really anything here to make it more worthwhile than any of the others.
14Cannibal Corpse
Gore Obsessed


BTEC The Wretched Spawn. Some of the most by-the-numbers material of their career that at least has great production. Pit of Zombies is the only reason I ever come back to this.
