Waking The Cadaver are an American Deathcore band, playing in the vein of Slam DeathMetal bands like Devourment. Ironically, the band's rise in popularity had begun with a [[{{Mondegreen}} Misheard Lyrics]] video sometime back even before they even made their debut. Since then, they moved away from the slam stereotypes and their variety of death metal/deathcore has moved to a more tradtional NYDM sound ala bands like Suffocation and Dying Fetus.

They formed under the name Death To Honor befroe the name change in 2006. In that same year, they released their infamous two-track demo that would be the center of said video that would forever change them.

!!The band provides examples of the following tropes:
* CarefulWithThatAxe: The vast majority of their vocals.
* {{Deathcore}}
* DarkerAndEdgier: For most other deathcore bands.
* FollowTheLeader: Aimed for a slam sound that was less than living up till just recently.
* GenreBusting: Best described as a Slam Death, deathcore and hardcore mixed in the same blender.
* {{Gorn}}: The lyrics are mostly just straight up violence on ''Beyond Cops...''
* HarshVocals: Mostly pig squeals on the first album, with later works switching to more traditional death growls.
* HipHop: While Don denies being fans of said music, the psuedo-rapped lyrics say otherwise.
* IndecipherableLyrics: All over the place on the first album. Subsequent albums manage to be slightly more intelligible.
* {{Jerkass}}: Don Campan is known to be a homophobe and violent when confronted. The rest of the band wasn't much better, but the lineup changes seem to have made them into better people.
* MisogynySong: Played straight with the first album (as one might have guessed from such song titles as "Chased Through the Woods By a Rapist"). Averted with ''Beyond Cops, Beyond God'' and ''Real-Life Death'', which focused more on [[OmnicidalManiac general misanthropy]] and [[RatedMForManly "Tough Guy"]] lyrics.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually a 10 or 11. Justified in that they have slam influences. Even when they moved away from slam, they still sound much heavier than the average deathcore.
* NewSoundAlbum: ''Beyond Cops'' has a more standard Brutal Death Metal sound, with the slams being downplayed in favor of faster riffs.
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: One of the most frequently mocked aspects of the band is their very wigger-ish appearance.
* [[DeathMetal Slam Death Metal.]]
* StartMyOwn: Rob Wharton (who played on ''Beyond Cops, Beyond God'') did this with Cognitive.
