Cannabis Corpse - Biography





Cannabis Corpse was formed in the summer of 2006 as a way to express our love of smoking weed and listening to Cannibal Corpse. We thought that combining the speed and intensity of death metal with outlandish stories involving marijuana monsters, weed cults, ect. would be a fresh take on the genre. The songs for our first album Blunted At Birth were recorded in Weedgrinders kitchen on a boss BR-600 in Richmond Va by Landphil and his brother Hallhammer on a shoestring budget. Some friends liked the sound of the demo so much they offered to put it out as the first release on the fledgling record label Forcefield Records and it received alot of positive feedback from the death metal community.

The band had its first live gig on April 20 2007 (4/20), enlisting axeman Nickropolis the following year and everyone in the band enjoyed playing the music so much more gigs followed. That same year production on the second full length album Tube Of The Resinated began and was released in 2008 by Forcefield Records as well as Robotic Empire. The band started to play live much more often at this point doing several tours of the east coast with bands such as Skeletonwitch and Infernal Stronghold. They also got the opportunity to play a role in the movie In The Loop; a satirical comedy staring James Gandolphini performing the song "Sentenced To Burn One" at the Black Cat in Washington D.C.

In 2009, the latest E.P called The Weeding was released on Tank Crimes Records. The Oct. of 2009 saw the band going on its first full U.S tour with the band Ramming Speed, and in Feb. 2010, Cannabis Corpse had their first tour of Europe and the UK. Expect to see a lot more from Cannabis Corpse in the future and smoke weed everyday!

In 2012 Andy and Nick parted ways with the band and Brent "Legion" Pergason was recruited as the new live guitarist and Landphil took over vocal duties. The band continues forward with no end in sight!
