American death-metal titan Cannibal Corpse embodies the genre’s doomy ideals: pummeling drum rhythms, detuned guitar blasts, guttural vocals and violent lyrical imagery. The latter element lent the group some mainstream notoriety in the 1990s, when conservative politicians launched a campaign against the band, whose recurring themes include Satan, murder, torture and mutilation. Cannibal Corpse has succeeded in perverting impressionable minds for over three decades, with last year’s Red Before Black its latest stab at indoctrination. It’s a metal-fest at the Georgia Theatre Tuesday also featuring Florida’s Hate Eternal, Chicago hardcore standout Harm’s Way and local death-metal favorite Guillotine.
CANNIBAL CORPSE Legendary, long-running death-metal band from Florida.
HATE ETERNAL Death-metal group from St. Petersburg, FL.
HARM'S WAY Hardcore punk band from Chicago known for incorporating metal and electronic elements.
GUILLOTINE Hard-hitting local death-metal band.
