CARCASS picture
Carcass is a goregrind/death metal band formed by Napalm Death guitarist Bill Steer together with drummer Ken Owen in 1985 and is considered by many to have been one of the most influential and talented bands within the extreme metal scene.

Carcass was originally based in Liverpool. On their first demo, Sanjiv contributed vocals. In 1987, bassist and vocalist Jeffrey Walker, formerly of the Electro Hippies, joined them.

The band focused on topics mostly relating to the medical field and bizarre combinations of medical equipment and chemicals with human anatomy, such as "Intenacious, intersecting / Reaving fats from corporal griskin [...] Skeletal groats triturated, desinently exsiccated". This lyrical focus led many in the music press to falsely believe that one or more members of the band had studied medicine. There is more evidence to show that this lyrical focus was a method of pushing vegetarianism (For example, "Exhume To Consume").

Warthur
Carcass' comeback album sports cover art reminiscent of the old Tools of the Trade EP which served as the prelude to Heartwork, and it's the melodic death metal style of Heartwork they return to here, backing away from the death 'n' roll direction they had flirted with on the (now inaccurately named) Swansong.

Of course, Carcass producing a new take on the Heartwork sound isn't going to be as groundbreaking today as Heartwork was in 1993, but they've nonetheless produced a solid comeback album that offers more of the same and isn't an embarrassment to their discography - a rarity in itself. Carcass spent a while gigging live - years, in fact - after their reunion before they dared consider producing a new album, which I suspect is the secret of its success; rather than going through the motions and squeezing out a mediocre album for duty's sake, Carcass have waited for inspiration to strike before producing new material, and that's a lesson more reunited bands could afford to learn.

"Tools of the Trade" is an EP release by UK death metal act Carcass. The EP was released through Earache Records in June 1992. All tracks from the EP are also featured on the "Gods of Grind (1992)" split compilation with Cathedral, Confessor, Entombed, as bonus tracks on at least one reissue version of "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious (1991)" and on the "Wake Up and Smell the... Carcass (1996)" compilation.

"Tools of the Trade" features 4 tracks, distributed over a 17:38 minutes long playing time. The title track opens the EP. It´s the only completely new track on the EP. It´s a short, simple and effective track. "Incarnated Solvent Abuse" from "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious (1991)" is up next. The two remaining tracks are re-recordings of "Pyosisified (Still Rotten to the Gore)" from "Reek of Putrefaction (1988)" and "Hepatic Tissue Fermentation II", which in it´s original form appeared on the "Pathological (1989)" compilation.

All tracks feature a sound production similar to the one on "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious (1991)" and my guess is that "Tools of the Trade" is an outtake from the recording sessions for that album and that "Pyosisified (Still Rotten to the Gore)" and "Hepatic Tissue Fermentation II" were also recorded at those sessions.

The material on "Tools of the Trade" are generally of high quality and the re-recordings really help make clear how great and unique a band Carcass already were very early on, despite their efforts often being drowned in murky and noisy sound productions. Both of the re-recorded tracks are greatly entertaining and powerful tracks, "Incarnated Solvent Abuse" is also a great track, featuring sneering aggressive vocals, tempo changes, quirky ideas and absolutely brilliant guitar solos and with the powerful and raw title track to top things off, "Tools of the Trade" is more than a worthwhile release. So while the title track is the only "new" material on the EP, there are plenty of value for the money and a 4 - 4.5 star (85%) rating is fully deserved.

Carcass was originally formed by guitarist Bill Steer and drummer Ken Owen in 1985 under the name Disattack. After releasing one demo the bassist and singer left to be replaced by vocalist Sanjiv and bassist Jeff Walker. They changed their name to Carcass and in April 1987, recorded the ‘Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment’ demo, after which vocalist Sanjiv departed leaving the core of Walker, Steer and Owen. They shared the vocal duties, and after just four days the classic ‘Reek of Putrefaction’ was completed. The band, with additional guitarists, released some incredible albums with ‘Necrotiscm – Decanting the Insalubrious’ being probably the highlight, but in 1995 they called it a day.

At the end of the Nineties Ken Owen suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, which meant that when a version of the band reformed in 2007 he could not be involved, so Daniel Erlandsson took his place while Michael Amott, Bill Steer and Jeff Walker played some festivals. So why all the ancient history? Well, it’s important to put into context just how significant this band was in the development of extreme music, and just how great it is to have them back again. Bill Steer and Jeff Walker have brought in drummer Daniel Wilding as Ken is still not well enough to play, and have taken ‘Necroticism’ as a starting point, cranked it up, and then blasted through any preconceived ideas.

This is crushing, crunching, dynamic stuff. The wonderful song titles are still there (“Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System” or “Noncompliance to ASTM F 899-12 Standard”) for example, but to be honest this is all about complex and complicated metal with guitar runs to die for. Metal really doesn’t get much better than this, with the only question being why on earth has it taken so long for these guys to get back into the studio. Two production heavyweights, Colin Richardson and Andy Sneap, have ensured that every nuance and every ounce of brutality has been captured on what has to be one of the most incredible comeback albums ever. It really is as if these guys have never been away, and anyone who has ever nodded a bonce to their work in the past is going to incredibly pleased with what has been delivered here. Let’s hope that they don’t wait quite so long for the next one.

With this Carcass have proved that they are back with a vengeance – stunning metal that deserves to be played at 11.

Completing their break from their earlier grindcore style and ramping up their melodic and technical capabilities, Carcass followed up Necroticism with Heartwork, and as far as I can tell many find it a toss-up to work out which is better. Personally, I prefer the more accomplished songwriting and musicianship on here, which suggests that Carcass had become comfortable enough with both their new genre and the inclusion of Michael Amott in the lineup, enabling the group to really start testing and expanding its boundaries. Hardline grindcore fans who consider melodic death metal to be tantamount to be selling out may grouse, but I think most listeners will find it an interesting balancing act between the welcoming melodic style and the macabre subject matter.

CARCASS Surgical Steel

UMUR
"Surgical Steel" is the 6th full-length studio album by UK death metal act Carcass. It´s been 17 years since the release of their last album "Swansong (1996)", so "Surgical Steel" can rightfully be called a comeback album. "Surgical Steel" was released through Nuclear Blast Records in September 2013.

Since it was learned that Carcass would record and release a new album there have been plenty of speculations about the style of music the album would feature. All five predecessors are very different soundind. From the goregrind of the early releases, to the death metal of the mid-era releases to the death´n´roll of "Swansong (1996)". Different sounding for sure but all unmistakably the sound of Carcass. On "Surgical Steel" the band have opted for a sound that is reminischent of their arguably most popular period in the early nineties and the two albums "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious (1991)" and "Heartwork (1993)". It´s especially the latter that "Surgical Steel" takes it´s cues from, but there are nods toward the more gore oriented death metal style of the former too and also a few nods toward the melodic death´n´roll style of "Swansong (1996)".

Carcass always consisted of the nucleus of Bill Steer (Guitars, vocals), Jeff Walker (vocals, bass) and Ken Owen (drums) (with changing second guitarists), but on this album Ken Owen is replaced by Daniel Wilding (who does a great job). Ken Owen suffered a brain haemorrhage in 1999 and hasn´t been able to join Carcass full time again. He does deliver some backing vocals on "Surgical Steel" though. Even though the music relies heavily on two guitars, Carcass have opted not to include a second guitarist in the lineup for the recording of "Surgical Steel", so Bill Steer handles all guitars on the album. The vocals by Jeff Walker are sneering and aggressive and as distinct sounding as ever.

"Surgical Steel" is well produced, powerful and not too polished. I always felt that "Heartwork (1993)" (which is the album that "Surgical Steel" reminds me the most about) suffered from a cold and sterile sound production, but that´s fortunately not the case with "Surgical Steel". It´s not exactly organic sounding either, but the sound production suits the music perfectly.

The material are generally of high quality and we´re treated to both shorter blasting parts, death/thrashy riffing, melodic soloing and nice harmonies. There is a good balance between the raw and the melodic and as a consequence the tracks are for the most part catchy and memorable. It´s almost unfair to mention specific tracks as they are all great, but "Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System" and the two closing tracks "Captive Bolt Pistol" (which is the track on the album that is most reminiscent of the material on "Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious (1991)") and "Mount of Execution" are some of the standout tracks on the album.

"Surgical Steel" is upon conslusion a high quality comeback for Carcass and it´s not audible for a second that they have been gone from the scene for so many years (or that they are not twenty anymore). The songwriting is top notch and the delivery is convincing and passionate. "Surgical Steel" won´t revolutionize the world of metal like most of it´s predecessors did, but it´ll most likely greatly please fans of the band and hopefully earn them even more in the process. A 4 - 4.5 star (85%) rating is warranted.
