Cannibal Corpse Centuries of Torment: The First 20 Years

Cannibal Corpse Centuries of Torment: The First 20 Years
This is exhaustive: seven hours and 20 minutes of the Corpse, starting off with an epic three-hour look at the history of the band. With interviews with ex-members, other bands, producers, even parents of Corpse members, this is actually a very enjoyable documentary. The second DVD features performances from over the years, ranging from perfect quality (With Full Force, 2007), high quality bootleg (Toronto, 2006) to almost unwatchable (New York, 2000). The footage is mainly with Corpsegrinder behind the mic, but some Chris Barnes material shows up as well. There are also all the band’s music videos to enjoy. The third disc (yes, it’s a triple-DVD set) is a bunch of cool little bonus things (looking at lyrics, art, tattoos, controversy and much more) to take in at a later date once your head is no longer reeling from all the information and death metal torture the first two discs have offered. Very cool and highly recommended. Corpse fans are going to eat it up and casual listeners, while they will have a hard time digesting it all, will come out of it with a greater respect for the band.
