Comebacks can be scary, especially from legendary bands such as Carcass. What if it sucks? What if it's so bad that nobody goes to see them and Carcass fades into being the next Morbid Angel? Well, at least it's pretty comforting that the song names sound like they're directly off of Necroticism.
From the way guitarist and vocalist Bill Steer describes the new material from the forthcoming Surgical Steel album due out later this year, there's almost no way it can suck. The fact that he only wanted to continue on with the new album if it sounded exactly like a Carcass record in and of itself is making me extremely hopeful. Not to mention Steer even claims that every time he was trying to jam on new riffs over the past few years, everything he played sounded like a Carcass riff, which he defines as-
People spend a lot of time chugging on the bottom string [but] that’s a rhythm it’s not a riff – we can’t write a song, never mind an album, without it being choc-full of riffs.
Conclusion? Bill Steer literally have gore and grindcore coursing through his veins.
Don't take my word for being excited beyond all reasonable belief though! Check out some of the new song titles-
"The Master Butcher’s Apron"
"The Granulating Dark Satanic Mills"
"A Congealed Clot Of Blood"
"A Wraith In The Apparatus"
"316l Grade Surgical Steel"
"Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System"
"Captive Bolt Pistol"
"Intensive Battery Brooding"
"None Compliance To Astm F899-12 Standard"
"Mount Of Execution"
"Unfit For Human Consumption"
Wasn't kidding when I said they sound like they're straight out of Carcass' super gore-grind period. Do keep in mind that while their original drummer Ken Owen has been replaced by Dan Wilding (Aborted, Heaven Shall Burn, Trigger The Bloodshed), Owen will be featured on the record for some guest vocals.
