Cannibal Corpse - Evisceration Plague

6/10

Evisceration Plague is a fairly so-so effort from Cannibal Corpse. The fast songs here are perfectly fine, but they don't vary a whole lot, and one gets a little burnt out on them after a while. The slower efforts like "A Cauldron of Hate" and the title track are awesome songs that are perfect for headbanging, and I really wish there had been more songs like these. Sure, Tomb of the Mutilated was my favorite CC album and it was pretty one-note, but that album had dark, murky production that was fairly unique for the band. Evisceration Plague is well produced, but in no that's more unique than many other death metal albums.
That's not to say that there aren't some great fast songs here, though- the first three songs are all really good, and "Carnivorous Swarm" does a great job of evoking a horde of buzzing insects. It's just that most of the songs on Evisceration Plague kind of blur together after a while; they're pretty good while they're on, but only a few stick out in my mind after the album's over. This one's not the worst CC album, but there are others that are much, much better.
