MUNICIPAL WASTE's Phillip “Landphil” Hall offshoot CANNABIS CORPSE might have recently lost their vocalist Andy “Weedgrinder” Horn and guitarist Nick “Nikropolis” Poulos, but we are all richer for their new JoeFen (The Gift Media)-created video ‘Where The Kind Lives’. The tune comes from the group's July 2011-released album ‘Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise’ (Tankcrime Records). The death metal parody, recorded by Phil Hall, mixed by Eric Rutan at Mana Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side, can be heard in its entirety here (BandCamp) as well as via player available below.

CANNABIS CORPSE: Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise
“If the stomping riff at the end of ‘Lunatic Of Pot's Creation’ doesn’t get you headbanging, then just stop there. ‘Immortal Pipes’ is the embodiment of early 90's Floridian sweat, including an epic guitar solo complete with absurd dive bombs. Airtight rhythms roll through ‘Blaze Of Torment’. On ‘Slave To The Chron’ where other bands might throw in a predictable breakdown, they speed up. It makes for a fun, unpredictable listen. The lyrics are equally as entertaining, featuring such gems as the pro-legalization manta ‘Blame It On Bud’: “Drop guillotines in crimson spurts / Stoners emerge on red alert / Dragged through the streets by toking bangers / Swing from the gallows by hemp-made hangers”. While some of the serious longsleevers may find the tongue in cheek offensive, backpatchers will latch on like lips to a sweet six-footer,” [showed off his insightfulness on the topic Lambgoat's reviewer Joshua before offering his final expertise: “It sounds even better… on weed.” More here]
Bassist and guitarist Philip “Landphil” Hall reportedly came up with the spoof name, CANNBIS CORPSE, already in 1999, helped by his brother and drummer Josh “HallHammer” Hall, but the project itself came into realization quite some years later, in 2006. CANNABIS CORPSE's debut full-length ‘Blunted At Birth’ was recorded with vocalist Andy “Weedgrinder” Horn. Joined by guitarist Nick “Nikropolis” Paolos, CANNABIS CORPSE issued its follow-up, ‘Tube Of The Resinated’ on Forcefield Records in 2008, followed their debut on Tankcrimes Records, 2009's ‘The Weeding’.
