Death Metal Fans Explain Why They Listen to Cannibal Corpse
"Sometimes negativity can bring out positivity."
The website Koncrete decided to venture out to a Cannibal Corpse show, to see why fans listen to the music. If you've never heard a Cannibal Corpse song before, the lyrics are extremely controversial and to some people offensive, and the music itself is loud and filled with intense growling that can be hard to understand at times. Here's a sample of one of Cannibal Corpse's songs, called "Entrails Ripped From A Virgin's Cunt"
Murder, hatred, anger, savage
Killings I have caused more than can be counted
Orgies of sadism and sexual perversion
Virgin tied to my mattress, legs spread wide
Ruptured bowel, yanked from her insides
Devirginized with my knife, internally bleeding
Vagina, secreting her blood-wet pussy
I am eating on her guts, I am feeding
Mutilated with a machete
I fucked her dead body, the first and last
Your life's only romance
My knife's jammed in your ass
As you die you orgasm"
But for many metal fans, the lyrics and the music speaks to them, letting another side of their personality shine through. Many fans explained how the music for them is a release from the daily stress of their lives. Watch the video above and see why death metal fans say they love Cannibal Corpse.
