17. Cannabis Corpse - Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shall Rise
To me the concept of Cannabis Corpse always seemed like a joke that went to far. Like a few guys were doing bong hits while listening to Cannibal Corpse and one guy said "hey guys, I Cum Bud" and they all started laughing, took the joke further, and eventually made it into a band. While this is a very stupid concept for a band the music is actually very good. I think this is their best album to date and I'd go as far to say this album smokes (pun intended)
at least half of Cannibal Corpse's discography. Personally I'd like to see these guys move away from parody titles. IT seems they ran out of Cannibal Corpse songs to make fun of so they moved to Morbid Angel and Deicide titles. Some of them are pretty good but some of these titles are pretty lousy ("Dead by Bong", "Blame it on Bud"... come on guys). Song titles aside this album is killer and one of the best death metal releases this year.
