This album signified a few changes for Cannibal Corpse, primarily the change in speed. The reason for this was because Barnes had decided he wanted to pursue a different musical angle. For this album, he chose a more "groove" style similar to what he was doing in Six Feet Under over Cannibal Corpse's previous material which focused more on blast beats and speed. Vocally on The Bleeding Chris had also decided to go for a more "decipherable" approach instead of his previously inhuman grunting he had executed on previous Cannibal Corpse albums.
The Bleeding is also Cannibal Corpse‘s most successful album to date, and their first entry on the Billboard charts. A video was made for the song Staring Through the Eyes of the Dead. The album is also notable for a much more technical approach for the guitar work, and a more prominent bass. The original 1994 cover art, a departure for a Cannibal Corpse album, appeared to depict a tapestry of raw flesh and muscle, rather than it featuring graphic violence. The uncensored cover art for the 2006 reissue, however, reveals the original artwork was merely a part of a greater whole. In reissue artwork, a man is standing in an intimate gathering of zombies, with an expression of ecstasy on his face.
The Bleeding (Cass, Album, Unofficial). The production undoubtedly helps; from what I remember, Cannibal Corpse albums before The Bleeding sounded like mud, accompanied by insistent drumming and unintelligible animal grunts; what is refreshing here is that everything is audible, lyrics are discernible, arrangements are imaginative and the cartoon ultraviolence is amusing.
