Chris Barnes is an American death metal vocalist. He gained fame as the original singer for the death metal band Cannibal Corpse. He is known for very low guttural vocals and extremely gory and violent lyrics. He recorded four albums with Cannibal Corpse ('Eaten Back to Life', 'Butchered at Birth', 'Tomb of the Mutilated', and 'The Bleeding') before leaving the band in 1995 to commit to his other band Six Feet Under. He's responsible for setting the bar for what the modern death metal vocalist sounds like (low grunting, screaming, high screeching). In 1994, he and the other members of Cannibal Corpse made a brief cameo appearance in the movie 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective' playing the song "Hammer Smashed Face".
