CARCASS Streams "Kelly's Meat Emporium", Announces New Album

Torn Arteries is finally here.


After pushing it back due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carcass will finally release their new album Torn Arteries on September 17. The band is now streaming the single "Kelly's Meat Emporium", which of course shreds in a very heavy mid-paced way.

“I think as our 7th album, it does stand out from the others both sonically and stylistically,” explains vocalist and bassist Jeff Walker. “You can definitely tell that it’s Carcass; when you drop that needle on the vinyl, when you hear that guitar tone, you can tell it’s Bill Steer, but each album is always a product of its time.”

As for the album name, Steer previously noted that it pays homage to ex-drummer Ken Owen and his fictitious band of the same name.

“He had a fictitious band called Torn Arteries and he recorded everything himself in his bedroom — guitar and he’d actually bang on boxes and kind of scream into the mic. The whole thing was so distorted, it kind of sounded super heavy, even though essentially you were listening to a guy with a Spanish guitar and a couple of boxes. I think Jeff appreciates the connection to the past and the fact that it was another Ken Owen classic. So that was his choice, really, and it stuck.”

Torn Arteries also features the 2019 Carcass track "Under The Scalpel Blade" which was originally released as a standalone single. Pre-orders for Torn Arteries are available here.
