During an appearance on “Vox & Hops”the podcast hosted by Matt McGachyleader of an extreme metal band CRYPTOPSY, CANNIBAL CORPSE singer George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher opened up about his recent weight loss and how it affected his live performances.

“Four days after my birthday [in July 2021]my wife started doing Weight Watchers [now called WW after a rebranding in 2018]and so I decided, ‘I’m going to do it too,'” he said (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET). “And so far…I’ve probably put on an extra five or 10 pounds over the holidays, because while you’re sitting there drinking those beers, you’re also eating a few holiday cakes and stuff. So a few more pounds have gone But at one point I was, starting four days after my birthday, I had lost 47 pounds.

In the interview, which was recorded before the launch of CANNIBAL CORPSEof the February/March 2022 US tour, the 51-year-old singer continued, “So that’s another thing I did in my spare time. I just decided to dedicate it to Weight Watchers. It worked for me, and it worked for… My daughter and my wife did it too, my oldest daughter. So I still do it now. And I hope that before I start this next tour, I can lose more weight. ‘Cause I know when we [played at the Psycho Las] Vegas [festival last August], I had probably lost about 25 pounds, and I could tell on stage. Even though we hadn’t played in a while – we hadn’t played a show in over a year – I could still tell that I had lost weight. I felt better [and] I felt stronger.”

Sinner added: “So we’re starting this tour in February, and hopefully I can drop another 15 [pounds] and having passed the 47 [that I had lost before]. ‘Cause I’ve probably lost about 35 pounds now [from before I started the Weight Watchers program], which is still a lot. When I [started] this diet, I weighed 309 pounds [approximately 140 kilograms]. Because I know how much better it made me feel to be on stage. I’m not getting any younger, so you have to take charge. And I really feel like that helped me.”

The 10-song effort was co-produced by Nick Bellmore (DEE SNIDER, REALM OF PAIN) and Jamey Jasta (RACE HATE) and was made available via Onlythe new label, Perseverance Music Group.
