There is far more to CANNABIS CORPSE than just a parody. Driven by a deep passion for brutal Floridian Death Metal, MUNICIPAL WASTE bassist / vocalist Phil “LandPhil” Hall and Josh “Hallhammer” Hall (drums) started this band in 2006 in Richmond, Virginia (USA). Since the brothers also shared a penchant for weed, they changed the stereotypical subjects of this genre dealing with gore, splatter and horror to marijuana based subjects. A nice infusion of a great sense of humour at a time Death Metal had started to take itself rather too seriously. Yet CANNABIS CORPSE proved right from the “Blunted at Birth” debut (2006), through follow up full-length “Tube of the Resinated” (2008) and the EP “The Weeding” (2009) that they were a musical match for those influences they paid obvious homage too such as CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE and OBITUARY. With “Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise” (2011), CANNABIS CORPSE went a step further. While many of the classic bands had gotten lost in a self generated maze searching for the holy grail of Death Metal and trying to take the genre to new dimensions often to the disappointment of their old school fans, LandPhil and Hallhammer went the other way. The brothers simply kicked ass. Crushing riffing, relentless pounding from the rhythm section and growls from the bottom of the throat. Accordingly the reactions where overwhelming. “Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise” simply had everything that people wanted to hear. Season of Mist has already brought back the complete back catalogue of CANNABIS CORPSE as a prelude to their eagerly awaited fourth full-length “From Wisdom to Baked”. Time to get stoned, high and lit with Death Metal as it is supposed to sound!
