* HarshVocals: Mullen took [[CannibalCorpse Chris Barnes']] grunts and made them clearer while sacrificing none of their gut impact, creating an instantly recognizable vocal style that would go on to shape the future of death metal vocals.

This, of course, was not to last, as Mullen and Hobbs reformed the band in 2003, welcoming back Smith, Barohn, and Marchais on their respective instruments, though Barohn was quickly fired, forcing Hobbs and Smith to perform bass duties for the album. Thankfully, they quickly found [[Music/DecrepitBirth Derek Boyer]] to fill the bass spot in 2004, where he has stayed ever since. This lineup would go on to release multiple albums and tour like madmen, ushering in a new era of success for the band. Things stayed stable until 2012, when Smith quit and Bill Robinson (also of Decrepit Birth fame) had to briefly take Mullen's place on the European tour, with Culross once again taking drum duties. As of February 2013, they have officially released a new album, titled ''Pinnacle of Bedlam'', in addition to announcing that Mullen would have to sit out tour dates here and there due to his need to put his job first ([[FanDumb which, of course, was misconstrued as Mullen leaving the band, creating an uproar that annoyed the band to no end]]); of course, Mullen stayed, and [[Music/DyingFetus John Gallagher]] was chosen as his fill-in for the live dates that he could not make. By the looks of things, they still have no intention of stopping any time soon. As of 2014, Culross has left yet again, with Kevin Talley officially taking over on a full-time basis. Live vocal fill-ins are currently being handled by [[Music/{{Disgorge}} Ricky Myers]]. A new album is slated for 2016, and Myers will apparently also contribute some vocals in addition to Mullen's own. At some point in 2016, Guy Marchais quietly left; Charlie Errigo (The Merciless Concept) is his replacement. Talley also left at some point between May and July of 2016 and was replaced by Eric Morotti (Killitorous, Blind Witness) on a full-time basis. Lastly, Ricky stepped down from live vocals around the end of the year; while an official announcement was not made, Kevin Muller (also of The Merciless Concept) took over Ricky's duties.

It is also believed that Kevin will eventually take over for Frank completely within the next few years, as Frank does less than ten shows a year with the band and has made it clear that ''...Of the Dark Light'' very well may be his last album.

* TokenMinority: Terrance Hobbs and Mike Smith were among the first (if not ''the'' first) black people in extreme metal (Wallace Milton of Internal Bleeding, Aantar Coates of Exmortis and later Diabolic, and Caller of the Storms of Blasphemy also got their start around the same time, but none of them were quite as high-profile) and are still among the most famous.

* MetalScream: Type 2 for Frank, Ricky, and Kevin; while Frank may not have ''quite'' been the UrExample of true gutturals ([[Music/CannibalCorpse Chris Barnes]] and [[Music/{{Deicide}} Glen Benton]] both beat him to the punch), he was most certainly a TropeCodifier by way of how he made them clearer and more intelligible, cutting out both the gurgliness of Barnes' vocals and the bellowing quality of Benton's. Ricky, meanwhile, has somewhat lower and more gurgly vocals that are at least somewhat reminiscent of the various vocalists who have been through Disgorge ([=AJ=] Magana probably being the closest to his style), but are still decidedly intelligible. Lastly, Kevin has a bit of a hardcore-flavored Type 1 edge to his, but is still very much a Type 2 as a whole.

* StartMyOwn: Guy did this with Pyrexia, but he left that band a long time ago. Interestingly enough, Doug Bohn joined that same band in 2011 and was their drummer until 2015, while Charlie Errigo was also a brief live member in 2014. Smith, meanwhile, started the {{Horrorcore}} project Grimm Real sometime during the band's initial run and released a long out-of-print mixtape sometime in the late nineties, though he has stated that he intends to revive it.
