Vile [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Vincent Jeffries
Released on Metal Blade in 1996, Vile is the first Cannibal Corpse recording to feature vocalist George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher. The band had built up a considerable following within the death metal community, and that success continued as Fisher brought a vocal dynamism and character that livened up the band's six-year-old sound.
