As long as it just sounds half as good as the Carcass stuff I am used to I am going to love it!
Second riff/main riff reminds me of "Holy Wars", verse riff reminds me of "Wake Up Dead"...
Someone's been listening to a lot of Megadeth lately haha
This song is even better than Captive Bolt Pistol.
Sure, old Megadeth is like the 101 of good metal
This record is pretty amazing.
It seems we have a lot of reputable bloggers who have received an advanced copy, cause so many are raving about it and it's not even out yet
Still waiting for my CD! I've read a few reviews though, they get me pumped.
Ya I'm just a few songs in and I am very pleased with this. Killer.
Full album, stream OFFICIAL!
Listened through in the car, now listening on monitors.
Pretty cool album. It is an individual album. It is not Heartwork part 2 (nor 0.5, I mean in between Necroticism and Heartwork). Yes, it is heavier than Heartwork for the most-part (darker and more evil sounding, with the occasional Heartwork melodies). It's kind of a mashup of the Necroticism and Heartwork (less of) style, with a good overall "Tools of the Trade" kind-of vibe. Hard to describe. Given that my favourite album is Necroticism, I am not disappointed with this one's style, just not amazed with it either though, yet. If I don't try and compare it to the other albums, then I think it is a good solid enjoyable album. The small percentage of Steers individual backing vocals disappoints me a little (I was hoping for more). I mean there are gang-style backing vocals including him ("Unfit for Human Consumption" backing vocals are great), just not a lot of his individual backing vocals like on "Corporal Jigsore Quandray" for example. I had only heard "Captive Bolt Pistol" before today and that is not an accurate indication of the whole album. At this stage that song is a highlight (probably because I am more familiar with it, rather than because it is a better song than the rest), as well as such tracks as "The Master Butcher's Apron", "Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System" and "Thrasher's Abattoir". Those are brutal songs. I think it is a "grower" though and will consume me soon though. Listening now as I type, I am getting drawn in already by "A Congealed Clot of Blood" (slayer-style riffs much?). Heavier than Heartwork (for the most part), that's for sure, if that is what you wanted to know. Great riffs by Steer, some at a terrific speed also. 4:23 on "Noncompliance..." could be straight off "Tools of the Trade" ("Hepatic Tissue Fermentation II").
BTW, nice job Andy.
EDIT: ^TLDR. It is a pretty dark/brutal/heavy album with some classic Carcass melodies thrown in.
Waiting anxiously for my copy, I always get my pre-orders late for some reason hahaha
Ok, first full listen. My mind has been BLOWN! I will listen again tomorrow, and the day after that, and so on. For now, I'll go to bed reading the lyrics with the album on my bedside table. Oh how I needed some new Carcass in my life.
The thing I love about Carcass is how utterly listenable they are.
Had this album on repeat since it arrived last week.
After listening to Heartwork and the new album back to back, it's hard to imagine there's 20 years between the two, to be honest. Songwriting is stellar, and production is top notch.
Streaming it now. Loving it so far. The sound is phenomenal. I will have to buy this.
I have listened to the album at least once every day in the last 14 days. Great album. I tend to skip "3161 Grade Surgical Steel" and "Mount of Execution" though. I prefer the bonus track "Intensive Battery Brooding" to those 2 tracks. Clever lyrics on most songs as well.
I only got the standard edition so I don't have the bonus tracks. I agree the title track is probably the weakest, but still killer to me, and mount of execution is brilliant, that final riff just makes me want to repeat it forever. Agree about the lyrics, being a vegan makes songs like Unfit for human consumption or the master butcher's apron so much more awesome.
My favorite is probably the Master Butcher's Apron, that "the sun never sets, the blood never dries" part drives me mad every time.
The album is stellar...got to see them in NYC last night, I asked Bill the same...how the hell do you have a 17 year gap and come back sounding exactly like you left off? Bill just smirked and said all the riffs that were written just sounded like Carcass...it all just came together, very humble dude in my opinion. Got all the recording details too, he had nothing but good things to say about Andy and his studio as well.
Wait there's more than one bonus track? I got the deluxe version and I only see one on there? Maybe the first aid kit version has more?
Anyway you know I'm gonna say I like it. I don't know how this isn't going to be my favorite album of 2013, really. Been jamming this all week.
