Carcass are a band from t he United Kingdom that has been around for a long time with their earlier material being a huge influence on the gore/grind and brutal death metal scenes while the later material was a huge influence on the melodic death metal scene and this is a review of t heir 2013 album "Surgical Steel" which was released by Nuclear Blast.
A very melodic guitar lead starts off the album and they are a very huge part of the recording and after awhile the music gets heavier along with some high pitched death metal screams and the riffing also brings back some of there earlier gore/grind area while also being more up to date with the modern days.
A lot of morbid sounding melodies can be heard in the guitar riffing and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while also bringing back some of t he melodic death metal style of their later material and as the album progresses blast beats can be heard in certain sections of the recording and a couple of the tracks a re very long and epic in length and acoustic guitars are added onto the last track.
Carcass creates an album that goes back tot he melodic death metal style that they started establishing in the early 90's while also adding in a touch of their early style to create a heavy recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover gore, pathology, medical, society and political themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Carcass and if you are a fan of their melodic material, you should check out t his album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System" "The Mater Builder's Apron" "Unfit For Human Consumption" and "Mount Of Execution". 8 out of 10.
