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").

Carcass-Reek of Putrefaction

'Reek of Putrefaction' is the debut studio album by grindcore/death metal band Carcass. Carcass is most likely better known for their later death metal offerings, especially 'Heartwork' which is often said to be among the first melodic death metal albums. However, Carcass started out as one of the early grindcore bands with highly gory lyrics that is typical of a lot of grindcore.

Like most Grindcore, all of the songs are extremely short and violent with the average song length ranging from 1-3 minutes. While there is no shortage of brutal grindcore attacks, 'Reek of Putrefaction' already has death metal elements in their sound as heard in the great opener 'Genital Grinder'. This one and a half minute long song begins with droning guitar, but soon picks up with driving riffs that would not sound out of place on one of Carcass's later releases. The opening four songs are actually probably my favorites, they all have a pretty good balance between brutal grind drum pounding, crashing guitars, and the slower driving death-oriented passages. The other standout track for me is 'Burnt to a Crisp', which has a good combination of driving guitar and vocal snarls.

As many other reviewers have said, the production on this album is pretty bad. I'm usually pretty tolerant of productions, but I have to be in the right mood to be able to enjoy the music here. It really can be hard to enjoy it sometimes when the production is so murky and muffled. There is also quite the amount of filler. When I reviewed Nasum's 'Inhale/Exhale' I stated how the songs went by quickly but were complex and really packed a punch, however, these songs are of similar length but feel much longer then they really are. A lot of the songs are also pretty repetitive, which doesn't work too well for an album with over 20 songs.

Overall, this album has it's ups and downs. The first few tracks and some of the later songs like 'Burnt to a Crisp' are really catchy, and easily enjoyable if you can get past the production. I do recommend this album for those interested in hearing some early examples of grindcore and can deal with a muffled production. However, it's clear that Carcass would get better with each new release. Hope you found this review helpful.

CARCASS Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel

EP · 2014 · Death Metal

UMUR
"Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel" is an EP release by UK death metal act Carcass. The EP was released through Nuclear Blast Records in November 2014. All material on the 5 track, 17:40 minutes long EP was recorded during the sessions for "Surgical Steel (2013)", but up until now, has only been available spread out over the digipack and the Japanese import versions of "Surgical Steel (2013)", and in the case of "Zochrot", it was originally only available as a give away flexi disc with the October 2013 issue of Decibel Magazine. So "Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel" is basically a rarities EP, with outtakes from the "Surgical Steel (2013)" sessions.

While the tracklist says 5 tracks, the closing track is just a slightly altered version of the short instrumental "1985" from "Surgical Steel (2013)" titled "1985 (Reprise)", so in reality there are actually only 4 regular tracks on the EP. The opening track "A Wraith in the Apparatus" is probably the track which is closest in sound to the predominantly melodic death/thrash material on "Surgical Steel (2013)", while the other 3 tracks are slightly more hard rock/heavy metal infused, at times bringing up memories of the material on "Swansong (1996)".

While these are outtakes I´d still say the quality is pretty high, and while I think it was a wise move to keep these tracks off "Surgical Steel (2013)", they are also too good not to be released, so I definitely approve of the idea behind releasing "Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel". If you´re not a hardcore fan, you should probably listen to "Surgical Steel (2013)" before this EP, but even for the more casual listener, this could prove a good purchase and a 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

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.

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 was 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 snarling 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.
