George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher, in addition to having the best heavy metal name since Tom G. Warrior, is the singer of death metal legends Cannibal Corpse and inspiration for Metalocalypse’s Nathan Explosion... but what he’s lesser-known for is being an absolute fucking master of Instagram.

“Corpsegrinder”’s feed features all the gore and glory that you’d expect from one of the world’s most recognizable death growlers; where it becomes truly shocking is in its tenderness. While other metal singers use Instagram to promote more serious endeavors, like Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe (who’s well worth a follow), or Megadeth’s notoriously humorless Dave Mustaine, George Fisher isn’t afraid to show a side you wouldn’t expect from a dude whose band was once attacked by Senator Bob Dole as “undermining the national character of the United States.” Seriously. “Corpsegrinder”’s Instagram is fucking cute.

Here’s George after destroying the claw machine at Toys “R” Us:

The man who penned such hits as “Hatchet to the Head” and “Mummified in Barbed Wire” is also a dedicated family man who loves taking the kids to Disney and Legoland in his home state of Florida:

But where George truly captured my heart was in the days leading up to hurricane Irma, earlier this year. At first, he was defiant, as any true metalhead would be, vowing to ride it out at home, but even George’s defiance is endearingly dorky:

But ultimately, he let the good sense that allows a dude to spend decades screaming bloody murder for a living to prevail:

Thankfully, the Fisher family decided to take shelter at a Florida elementary school, so “Corpsegrinder” can continue making some of the most vile records the world has ever known, snapping sweet pictures, and most surprisingly, being such a good dad. I’ll let the man himself sum it up with the following post of a picture of a lonesome Florida highway and its caption:


It was a beautiful 81 outside this morning. 85% humidity though but that didn't stop me as I took my morning walk. It was mostly quiet with a few cars driving by and people walking by both of us saying "good morning" with a smile as we passed each other. WITH A SMILE. It made me think how easy it is to look at others as PEOPLE and nothing else. No race, no religion and no politics....Just PEOPLE, out on their morning walk sharing two kind words and a smile. There is always hope that it can be this way EVERYWHERE. THINK ABOUT IT… Have a great day everyone.


Namaste “Corpsegrinder.” You fucking rule.
