Cannibal Corpse is an American death metal band, formed in Buffalo, New York in 1988. The band has released ten studio albums, one boxed set, and one live album. Although Cannibal Corpse has had virtually no radio or television exposure, a cult following began to build behind the group with albums such as 1991's Butchered at Birth and 1992's Tomb of the Mutilated. Cannibal Corpse reached over 1 million in record sales worldwide in 2003, including 558,929 in the United States, making them one of the biggest selling death metal bands of all time.
Cannibal Corpse draws influence from thrash metal bands such as Slayer, Anthrax, Kreator, Sodom, and other death metal bands like Morbid Angel,Autopsy,Death, and Obituary. Inspired by horror fiction stories and horror films, the band's controversial lyrics and album art have been subject to bans, songs have been banned individually, and at times live performances have been prohibited.
