* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first album had a more thrash metal-esque tone to it, Chris Barnes' vocals were less guttural, and his lyrics were still gruesome but nowhere near as over-the-top as they were on the following three releases. This is because a fair bit of that album was comprised of leftovers from Leviathan and Tirant Sin that Chris, Paul Mazurkiewicz, and Bob Rusay had sitting around and wanted to use.

* EatenAlive: This is what happens to the protagonist in "Devoured by Vermin." Even though his heart, lungs, and other vital organs are being ripped out, he can still feel pain.

* ContemptibleCover: All of them save for ''Kill'' and ''maybe'' ''A Skeletal Domain'' which is ominous and creepy rather than gory.

** Really, all the releases with Barnes could count, due largely to his different songwriting style.

** Really, all the releases with Barnes could count, due largely to his different songwriting style. While Fisher doesn't write lyrics[[note]]not completely true, as he has credits on three songs, but three songs out of the 100+ that they've done with him in the band is an infinitesimal amount[[/note]] and, at most, sometimes asks one of the lyric writers to tweak something if he really isn't feeling the vocal lines, Barnes wrote all of his own lyrics and vocal lines.

** On the more [[SincerityMode serious side of things]], they ''have'' had a couple of songs that focus less on gore and more on the supernatural/paranormal side of things such as "When Death Replaces Life" and "A Skeletal Domain".

* RefugeInAudacity: Really, the entire point of the band and their music by their own admission.

* StrictlyFormula: In the twenty-seven years that they've been releasing albums, they have had no real meaningful stylistic shifts. When someone buys a Cannibal Corpse album, they know what they're getting, and while most albums have some sort of individual motif or feel to distinguish them that largely depends on who did the bulk of the writing, they will not feature any major deviations from their established style.



* TechnicalDeathMetal: Some of their later work falls under this, particularly Pat O'Brien's songs. "Frantic Disembowelment," in particular, is notoriously complex and demanding; the band only played it live once and dropped it because the crowd reaction was not anywhere near enthusiastic enough to justify keeping a song that is apparently physically painful to play on the setlist.
