Carcass – ‘Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel’ EP to be released this November

23rd September 2014 0 By Craig

British extreme metal icons CARCASS, will release a collection of unreleased and hard to find tracks this November entitled the ‘Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel‘ EP. All the songs were recorded during the ‘Surgical Steel’ sessions, which was produced by Colin Richardson (NAPALM DEATH, BOLT THROWER, GOREFEST, CANNIBAL CORPSE, SINISTER, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA) and mixed/mastered by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, TESTAMENT). The EP will be released on physical and digital formats on November 17th.

“Well, let’s call this tying up loose ends,” comments frontman Jeff Walker. “We thought we’d make all the tracks available from the Surgical Steel album session available on an EP… just in case you bought the Jewel Case version, DIDN’T buy the Digipak, didn’t buy the Japanese Import, or maybe you never bought the DECIBEL Magazine issue with the flexi disc? Well here you go; ALL the songs on one disc along with a previously unreleased track. Even Trevor Strnad’s arm makes a guest appearance! Enjoy.”

CARCASS released ‘Surgical Steel’ last September via Nuclear Blast and even with their impressive back catalogue, ‘Surgical Steel’ has given the band their highest charting and possibly most critically acclaimed record to date.

CARCASS has released several classic albums over the years, including Decibel Magazine “Hall of Fame” inductees ‘Heartwork’ and ‘Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious’, and their influence has changed the face of extreme metal with every consecutive release. Whether it was inventing gore-grind (i.e. ‘Reek of Putrefaction’, ‘Symphonies of Sickness) or creating the template for melodic death metal (i.e. ‘Heartwork’), CARCASS has always made records by which bars were set and rules were broken. Upon the band’s dismantling in 1996, fans mourned the loss of the seminal act and longed that the group would return again one day. In 2007, the metal world got its wish as CARCASS reformed to play several sold-out reunion shows around the globe. Once again re-motivated to administer a shot of cynicism and infectious riffs into the arm of a sickly metal scene, founding members Bill Steer and Jeff Walker began writing what would become the latest output of their highly influential career, ‘Surgical Steel’. Only the choicest of cuts were made, and blood sweat and tears were shed to bring us a record worthy of the CARCASS legacy. In short, ‘Surgical Steel’ is just what the doctor ordered.
