Cannibal Corpse - Live Cannibalism

7/10

As far as arrangements are concerned, Cannibal Corpse doesn't really change much from the original studio versions of the songs on Live Cannibalism, but it's a pretty decent listen regardless. What surprised me is that nearly half of the setlist consists of Barnes-era material. I can't say that Corpsegrinder improves on the original vocals, but it's definitely more interesting than just hearing more recent songs. Also, the stuff from the later albums sounds a bit better without the too-clean production that I hated.
Corpsegrinder also has some brief-but-amusing stage banter. ("This next one goes out to all the fucking women out there!") The only real misstep is the unnecessary addition of 90 seconds of feedback to the end of "Disposal of the Body". Otherwise, it's fine if not especially revelatory.
