    Directions: Rank Carcass's 6 albums plus the Tools of the Trade EP. Order and number each album 1-7. Ties are OK. Your first place album earns 7 points, your second place album earns 6 points, etc.

    Rules:
    • You may rank as few as 4 albums. Lists with less than 4 albums will not be counted.
    • If you list less than 7 albums, the first placed album will still get 7 points, the last placed album will still get 1 point, and the albums in between will have points distributed proportionately. The average points earned for albums that are not listed will not be impacted positively or negatively, so if you don't rank an album, you neither help it or hurt it.
    • If you don't number your list then it will be assumed that it is in ranked order
    At the end, the albums will be ranked based on their average number of points per vote.

    You have until Friday, July 31st at 5:00 PM PST to finalize your list, re-familiarize yourself albums you haven’t heard in awhile, familiarize yourself with albums you haven’t heard at all, lobby for any albums you think are underrated, and lobby against any albums you think are overrated.

    I enjoy everything by the band, even the generally hated Swansong. I feel like I rank Necroticism a little lower than most people but after two albums of disgusting gore it felt like a slight let down to kind of shift to a more straightforward death metal. Heartwork on the other hand is one of the greatest melodic death metal albums to exist. Surgical Steel is cool but you might be retarded if you voted it #1

    Carcass does rank as one of the very best metal bands out there. Everything up to Swansong was great. When Amott came in, the band seemed to be bulking up and crystallizing at the same time, creating a very serendipitous effect. I find Necroticism- Descanting the Insalubrious & Tools of the Trade (EP) to be commanding works of the genre. When Walker screams "hearses a must" from their Live from Rome bootleg, my metal senses go right into overload. I still listen to Heartwork & Symphonies of Sickness constantly. I think Swansong is underrated.
