Turning a classic album title such as Entombed's Left Hand Path into a weedy phrase would normally be punishable by having to listen to the worst of Modern Talking on continued play. Yet Cannabis Corpse not only get away with it, but the death metal and pot aficionados are actually doing exactly what their massive following is happily demanding of the Americans.
Cannabis Corpse was conceived out of a passionate love for Floridian death metal shared by Municipal Waste bassist/vocalist Phil "LandPhil" Hall and drummer Josh "Hallhammer" Hall, who created the band in 2006 in Richmond, VA. Sharing a penchant for marijuana, the brothers decided from the start to leave the stereotypical genre subjects of gore, splatter, and horror behind and infuse a green sense of humor into their lyrics. Meanwhile it has become a badge of honor for many of the Halls' idols to have one of their titles turned into a tongue-in-cheek parody.
Under the influence of the genre legends who preceded them, the trio give rise to an unrelenting piece of crushing, weed-themed death replete with their signature, THC-fueled, horror fiction lyrics. As tracks such as "The 420th Crusade," "Chronic Breed" and the title track illustrate, Left Hand Pass is another massive step-forward for the band and a monumental piece of U.S. death metal. Time to fly high again with Left Hand Pass!
