Why do some death metal fans not like Cannibal Corpse?

I've seen lots of DM fans saying they don't like CC for whatever reason. I'm a big DM fan and CC is one of my favorite bands.

    I think cannibal corpse just isn't heavy enough anymore. I mean you can find so many other bands that are more gruesome in a more refined way. Not just straight gore. I saw them a while back and they are pretty brutal live.

    I love Cannibal Corpse and have seen them live, which was awesome. I think that maybe some fans don't care too much for the over the top and ridiculously hilarious gore lyrics. Others might prefer something not so brutal like Melodic, Technical or Symphonic Death instead.

    Not an expert but maybe they think Cannibal Corpse's lyrics are a bit 'cheesy.' I listen to them on and off but I'm not a real big death metal fan, but I do like Deicide and Death.

    To Risteard: Dethklok's lyrics are probably the cheesiest, but a ton of people still like them. Heck, Dethklok is one of my favorite bands.

    But I don't know why some don't like CC. How could you not be a fan of a band whose singer's nickname is Corpse Grinder?

    I love Cannibal Corpse, but maby some death fans like more melodic death, or more technical death, not the raw, heavy, gory metal

    Their lyrics are just straight gore and really have nothing else to them. Thats why I prefer bands like Death and Nile over CC.

    I don't like Cannibal Corpse much... but I prefer melodic death metal.

    Besides, just because you like a certain genre doesn't mean you have to like all the bands that play it.

    Cannibal Corpse has the the most gory album covers ever.

    I think they're Great!
