CANNIBAL CORPSE: 'Centuries Of Torment – The First 20 Years' First-Week Sales Revealed

CANNIBAL CORPSE's first-ever career retrospective DVD, "Centuries of Torment – The First 20 Years", sold 2,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 8 on the Top Music Videos chart.

Commented bassist Alex Webster: "We are very excited by the incredible response to our new DVD, 'Centuries of Torment'. The first-week sales figures are far beyond what we expected, and we want to give massive thanks to our fans for making this possible. We also want to thank all of our fans and friends who submitted material and allowed themselves to be interviewed; your contributions are really what makes this DVD so special. And of course we need to say a huge thank you to Denise Korycki of Wild Wind Productions for doing such an incredible job directing, producing, and editing this DVD."

In a recent interview with, Webster stated about the "Centuries of Torment" DVD, "We did work hard on both the documentary and DVD itself. I know it seems long at first, but once you're watching it, you realize how hard it is to pare down 20 years of history — shows, albums, tours and everything else — into a couple of hours. You can only give so much attention to everything, and these great moments end up getting cut. But we're confident that what made it into the documentary will be entertaining to our fans. It is great that we even have Chris [Barnes, original vocalist] talking about the band in it. Most people thought we'd either skip over that or he'd want no part of it, but he was all for it. I think that because we ensured he's a part of things, fans will really appreciate the effort we put forth."

"This DVD is more of a celebration of what we've accomplished so far as opposed to saying, 'That's all we have.' This is by no means the end of CANNIBAL CORPSE's prolific output.

"This is a celebration of two decades of CANNIBAL CORPSE. Hopefully the next two decades will be just as interesting."
