The UK legends will be playing a one off exclusive show in Dublin’s intimate Academy venue on September 20th in support of the bands recent release “Surgical Steel” which topped the charts in Metal forums and magazines on an international level in 2013.
CARCASS has released several classic albums over the years, including Decibel Magazine “Hall of Fame” inductees “Heartwork” and “Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious” and their influence has changed the face of extreme metal with every consecutive release. Whether it was inventing gore-grind (i.e. “Reek of Putrefaction”, “Symphonies of Sickness”) or creating the template for melodic death metal (i.e. “Heartwork”), CARCASS has always made records by which bars were set and rules were broken. Upon the band’s dismantling in 1996, fans mourned the loss of the seminal act and longed that the group would return again one day.
In 2007, the metal world got its wish as CARCASS reformed to play several sold-out reunion shows around the globe. Once again re-motivated to administer a shot of cynicism and infectious riffs into the arm of a sickly metal scene, founding members Bill Steer and Jeff Walker began writing what would become the latest output of their highly influential career, “Surgical Steel”. Only the choicest of cuts were made, and blood sweat and tears were shed to bring us a record worthy of the CARCASS legacy. In short, “Surgical Steel” is just what the doctor ordered.
