In an unfortunate turn of events it seems that vocalist Andy ‘Weedgrinder’ Horn and guitarist Nick ‘Nikropolis’ Poulos have parted ways with weed-obsessed, death metal merchants Cannabis Corpse. Despite this, the band will continue to play shows and release material as stated in this Lambgoat newspost.
Most importantly though, after the recent death of GWAR guitarist Cory Smooth, Cannabis Corpse were set to play the benefit show in his name scheduled for the 7th of January at the Canal Club in Richmond, Va. Thankfully, friend and local resident Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God has announced through his Twitter account that he plans to stand in on vocals for the show which should make for an interesting dynamic. All proceeds go directly to the Smoot family and guitars from both Municipal Waste and GWAR will be given away in a raffle. All I can say is that, if it was in any way viable for me to get to that show, I would but it looks like I just have to enjoy the highlight reel when it gets uploaded to YouTube. In the meantime, however, check out ‘Gateways To Inhalation‘ from the 2011 Cannabis Corpse album Beneath Grow Lights Thou Shalt Rise posted above — it kills.
