CARCASS NECROTICISM: DESCANTING THE INSALUBRIOUS reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Warthur
Here there's little to no sign of the grindcore sound that Carcass made their name with on their previous albums; instead, this journey through a mortician's thesaurus is in a solid death metal style with the occasional more traditional metal-sounding guitar solo. The band regard this as a "progressive" album, but whilst the lyrics are certainly verbose in a Tales From Topographic Oceans sort of way musically speaking the technicality on display here is pretty simple compared to the sort of material Death or Atheist or Cynic would be cranking out at around the same time. Still, this is a nice early 90s death metal album which doesn't embarrass itself when set next to contemporary releases from Deicide or Morbid Angel.
arcane-beautiful
This is the album that really put Carcass into the metal world as legends and icons.

Before then...Carcass where a pinoeering band in the grindcore scene, and I have to admit, they really puhsed boundaries in that genre and also made England a more preductive place for metal.

But they soon adopted a new and more smarter style of songwriting. Now the songs on this album are quite lengthy, with some even going past the 6 minute mark into a 7 minute head melter. And whilst listening to this album, one thing was churning through my head...this is quite proggy in a weird way.

Now progressive death metal...a new genre of its own which turns up now and then, when listening to it, you can make many comparisons to Carcass during this period. Yes Carcass where experementing alot, and it can be heard in their songwriting, and to be honest...this style is one of my favourites ouf of Carcass experiments.

I prefer Heartwork to this album, mainly cause Heartwork is perfect and flawless...but this is album is a close contender. This album isn't flawless, cause not much is, but to be honest, this album is incredibly enjoyable and its a very interesting experience.

1. Inpropogation - Very dark, eerie and atmospheric intro. Full of exciting twists and turns. Almost progressive in an odd way. 10/10

2. Corporal Jigsore Quandary - This is the famous intro...that Trivium stole (to be honest, if you are gonna "steal" something, you might as well steal from Carcass). It's just a death metal classic really. 10/10

3. Symposium Of Sickness - Has quite a blackened death metal feel to it. Amazing blastbeats and riffs. 9/10

4. Pedigree Butchery - Great odd twists and turns. Proves that death metalcan be very dynamic and interesting. 9/10

5. Incarnated Solvent Abuse - One of their greatest riffs. Very diverse and exciting. Great images condured. 10/10

6. Carneous Cacoffiny - One of their best lyrical moments. Very diverse with some kick ass riffs. 10/10

7. Lavaging Expectorare Of Lysergide Composition - A mainly instrumental based song. Very diverse and interesting. 9/10

8. Forensic Clinicism / The Sanguine Article - Great lyrics. A completel step forward from their first 2 albums. Great arrangement. 10/10

CONCLUSION: This is the seeds of pure melodic death metal. And these seeds kick ass :D
Time Signature
Metallic Clinicism...

Genre: progressive death metal

This is no less than a masterpiece. The lyrics are still clinically gory and kind of silly (in a humorous and charming way, of course), dealing with various eays of disposing of dead bodies.

The music is brilliant, combining face ripping blastbeats and death metal shred riffs with complex riffs (as the opening riff of "Pedigree Butchery") and even melodic riffs ("Incarnated Solvent Abuse" contains a riff which might as well have occurred in 2000s melodic death metal). The songs are relatively long on this album and all songs are complex containing several changes in tempo, key, style and other twists and turns (Carcass allegedly even "stole" some Beethoven parts and used them in their own songs).

Notable songs are "Corporal Jigsore Quandary" (my favorite), "Symposium of Sickness", "Pedigree Butchery", "Incarnated Solvent Abuse", and the aptly titled, "Lavaging Expectorate of Lysergide Composition".

I consider this album a death metal masterpiece and recommend it to anyone who likes death metal and technical/progressive extreme metal.
