If you’re unfamiliar with the band, the most fatal mistake you could make is to not take them seriously. Of course, the band embrace humor and parody but CANNABIS CORPSE are focused on making killer music. With From Wisdom to Baked, the band have jumped to elite status. Prime classic US death metal.
CANNABIS expand their sound from being a predominantly Chris Barnes-era CANNIBAL CORPSE clone to one that incorporates more influences from all the classic US death metal bands, such as DEATH and MORBID ANGEL. Not only that but they explore the spaces for nuances within these established styles of death metal. Thus, avoiding sounding like a compilation CD mash up. CANNABIS CORPSE answer questions like, “How would CANNIBAL sound with good drumming?,” and “How would DEATH sound with gutteral vocals and more mosh-friendly parts?”
As with every CANNABIS release, fans can quiz themselves to figure out which album and song titles each song is derived from. What other band provides the additional value of metal trivia with every album?
With endless hooks, killer playing, and no discernible weak points, From Wisdom to Baked ranks as a pure gem in an oversaturated market filled with mostly irrelevant metal. Buy or die. (Season of Mist)
