Last time we were here was twenty years ago recording for Tommy Vance!
Reactivated British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS recorded several songs — “Unfit For Human Consumption”, “The Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System”, “Captive Bolt Pistol” and “Carneous Cacoffiny” — at the legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios in London, England for an exclusive BBC Radio 1 “Rock Show” session which will air soon as part of Daniel Carter’s program. The band states” “This should satisfy anyone who thought the [‘Surgical Steel’] album was too ‘slick!!!’ TOTALLY live in the studio.”
CARCASS is one of several bands who will perform at METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett’s first annual horror convention, dubbed Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL, which will take place February 6-8 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California.
"Surgical Steel" sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on September 16, 2013 in the U.K., September 13, 2013 in the rest of Europe and September 17, 2013 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was produced by Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) and mixed by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY).
Joining guitarist Bill Steer and bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker in CARCASS’ current incarnation are new drummer Dan Wilding (ABORTED, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED) and guitarist Ben Ash (PIG IRON, DESOLATION, LIQUEFIED SKELETON).
Decibel magazine’s third cross-country domination — set to take place next spring — will feature CARCASS alongside melodeath powerhouse THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, technical death metal heroes GORGUTS and emerging death/thrash squad NOISEM.
