Anthropophagic Cookbook - A Manchester Morgue Compilation

I haven't done a compilation on here in a while, so here's my latest. Actually, I did this one quite a while ago but for some reason I keep forgetting to post it. I call it Anthropophagic Cookbook. As far as I know, there are no audio cookbooks - even fewer dealing with the art of preparing human flesh for culinary purposes, so I know the title doesn't really make any sense. But like with all my compilations, logic is irrelevant if I think the title is funny. This has has a bit more specific of a theme than usual. Anthro Cookbook is filled with music about cannibalism. It's half scores from cannibalriffic films like Cannibal Holocaust or Ravenous, and half songs about cannibals, or cannibalizing, or learning to count using cannibals (that'll make sense after you listen to it).

I've tried to avoid just filling this with metal songs. I could've knocked this compilation out in about 14 minutes just by going through a couple Cannibal Corpse and Avulsed albums. I wanted a bit more of a challenge than that. There are a few metal songs from Blood Duster, Macabre and the mighty Exodus, but I think I've got a pretty good variety of other stuff to keep things interesting.

The image for the cover was taken from an old VHS cover from the truly horrible film Microwave Massacre. I remember seeing this cover in a video store when I was about 9 and it scared the hell out of me. For years I was afraid to watch it, completely unaware that it's actually a really low brow, low rent wacky horror comedy. What's funny is I think we actually rented Robocop that night, which is astonishingly violent and gruesome. Moreso than probably a hundred Microwave Massacres. Still, that image is pretty disturbing. Though I do wonder why he's cooking the lady's head with the hair still on, he'll never get that smell out of the microwave.

  • Angelo Badalamenti - Parents Theme (I think this might be called Meatloaf Mambo.)
  • Toto Coelo - I Eat Cannibals
  • Riz Ortolani - Crucified Woman (from Cannibal Holocaust)
  • Thurl Ravenscroft & Cliff Edwards - The Cannibal Song - Crazy old counting song featuring Jiminy Cricket
  • Macabre - The Wustenfeld Man Eater
  • Damon Albarn & Michael Nyman - Let's Go Kill That Bastard (from Ravenous)
  • Phil Ochs - The Ballad of Alfred Packer
  • Budy Maglione - Into the Bush/Rudy and Gloria are Screwed (from Cannibal Ferox)
  • Blood Duster - Dahmer the Embalmer
  • SNFU - Cannibal Cafe
  • Riz Ortolani - Savage Rite (from Cannibal Holocaust again)
  • Kitty In A Caskeet - Cannibal Paradise
  • White Sea - Cannibal Love
  • Exodus - Pleasures of the Flesh
  • Christopher Granger (Not 100% on this) - Cannibal Campout Theme
  • Electric Six - Slices of You
  • Severed Hand Back Scratcher Funk (from Microwave Massacre) No clue what this piece of music is called, but it's funky, and it's played over a scene where a homeless guy uses a severed arm to scratch his back. Excuse the quality, ripped from a VHS.
  • 8-bit version of Bloodbath's Eaten - The novelty of 8-bit death metal wears off pretty quickly, still pretty cool though. Now, if they had added vocals, this could've been hysterical.
  • New York Dolls - Stranded in the Jungle
  • Cannibal Campout - End Credits "If"
Bonus Track
Aural Vampire - Cannibal Coast - This song is Japanese and I put this one here before I read the lyrics. The song actually seems to be about vampires, so this one doesn't go with the others, but this song kind of rules so I'm including it anyway.

There's an interesting CD by a band called Morte Macabre, titled Symphonic Holocaust that you might enjoy. You can do a Google search on it. It's instrumental but interesting and atmospherically well done.

Definitely want to check out this comp, but none of your links work.
It just tries to get you to download iLivid, which I have no interest in doing.
