Hammer Smashed Face is Cannibal Corpse's first EP recorded in 1993. It boasts three tracks adding up to a little more than 15 minutes on side A. The first track is the notoriously classic Cannibal Corpse single "Hammer Smashed Face". The song is very strong and has some really killer riffage from the guitars that make it an equally pummelling yet creeping seething song. It alternates from fast to slow bits, and both are executed masterfully well, again- primarily because of the amazing riffs put into this song. The drums are done well- as can be expected from Paul. The last two tracks are covers. The first being a cover of Possessed's "The Exorcist". This song is probably the weakest point of the EP. It's good, but it's vastly mediocre to alot of CC's other covers. The other cover is that of the Black Sabbath song "Zero the Hero" from the amazing underrated ‘Born Again’ album. Cannibal Corpse are very good at sludgy grooves much like the ones displayed in this song. The guitars as usual are very good but what is extremely prominent in this song are Alex's bass work and Chris vocals. Yes you can almost understand Chris in this cover. Nothing against incoherency, but Chris does an excellent job. The song is very slow for Cannibal Corpse and it's a nice change from the usual. The B-side features two classic death metal bulldozers ‘Meat Hook Sodomy’ and ‘Shredded Humans’. So, overall, this is a very good mini album. This disc has become very hard to obtain so if youre a die hard collector then be prepared to spend some cash on this one. However anything with Cannibal Corpse is worth your money. Its a very handy disc that you can't be without. Track listing: 1. Hammer Smashed Face 2. The Exorcist-Possessed cover 3. Zero The Hero-Black Sabbath cover 4. Meat Hook Sodomy 5. Shredded Humans
