28 Years Ago: CANNIBAL CORPSE release Eaten Back to Life


CANNIBAL CORPSE released their debut album on this day in 1990 through Death Records (Metal Blade).

Yeah, we sent out like our videos ... actually, I knew a guy that I used to work with at a record store chain around here, and uh he like had some people at Metal Blade, and he just made sure they listened to it y'know, so we could get a chance. And they liked it, and they sent us a contract like two days later so we fuckin' signed it. Now we got a seven year contract with them y'know, seven albums, heh.

No endorsements yet, but uh Paul plays a Tama drumset with Paite cymbals, um Bobby uses Marshalls and he's got a Gibson Flying V. Jack's got a fuckin' guitar that came from hell probably, I don't even know what the fuck kind it is, man. He plays on a Crate stack, Alex plays on Peavey with a Fender Precision bass, and I use a Telex microphone and JBL speakers, ha ha.
