“THE DEATH METAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR….THE ONLY DEATH METAL BAND THAT MATTERS.” – Albert Mudrian, Decibel Magazine

Released: March 18, 2014

Even these days when the whole ‘let’s get the band back together’ thing is so prevalent that it’s pretty much much predictable, the 2013 reunion of British death metal legends Carcass after a seventeen year hiatus still qualifies as a Big Fucking Deal. The resultant album, Surgical Steel, shows that even without original drummer Ken Owen (sadly absent due to chronic health issues) or second guitarist Michael Amott (busy with Arch Enemy) these veggie-loving, medical-dictionary-consulting grind pioneers (Bill Steer and Jeff Walker, plus Owen’s replacement Daniel Wilding) are as brutally brilliant as ever, bringing to the operating table razor-sharp riffs, blazing speed, and searing melody, just like the old days. Specifically the old days of their 1993 melodeth masterpiece Heartwork, to which THIS album might really be a more of a worthy follow-up than 1996’s Swansong, although the precision-polished Surgical Steel does draw from aspects of Carcass’s whole history, including blasting gnarly grind and anthemic death n’ roll rockin’, all delivered with the bloody and sardonic attitude any fan would expect.   Call it a comeback and score it now on picture disc vinyl!   - Allan Horrox
