Extreme death metal band Cannibal Corpse typically moves in the darkness, spreading evil with songs such as "Dismembered and Molested," "I Cum Blood" and of course, "Entrails Ripped From a Virgin's Cunt." The band prides itself on its extremely violent approach to its subject matter, arguing that its music is simply an over-the-top form of artistic entertainment.

This past weekend, Cannibal Corpse performed at the Gathering of the Juggalos. The band was slotted to play earlier on the festival's main stage -- uncommon for the all-time top-selling death metal band in the country, who normally performs later, and under the cover of darkness.

Now, I'm not typically one for quoting the bible, but I am reminded of a passage:

John 3:20 "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."

And exposed they were. Behold, the intensely evil Cannibal Corpse, performing in broad, sunny daylight, for a crowd of juggalos:
