Cannibal Corpse is an American Death Metal band formed in 1988. They are one of the few death metal bands known in the mainstream; this is due to their extreme, Gorn-filled lyrics, which have caused immense controversy in several countries. They have had little TV or radio exposure, but remain one of the most popular (if not the most popular) death metal bands. They're certainly among the top-selling, and are considered one of the most influential death metal bands of all time, pushing forward the subgenre of "brutal death metal".

Their current lineup consists of George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher (vocals) [1], Alex Webster (bass), Paul Mazurkiewicz (drums), and guitarists Pat O'Brien and Rob Barrett. They have had quite a few past members, the most notable of these being Chris Barnes, their first vocalist, who is now the frontman of another death metal band, Six Feet Under (not to be confused with the show, of course).

Their albums are renowned for having extremely gory album art. You can see the albums and their respective art below, but bear in mind that they're extremely NSFW.
