CARCASS have announced four new tour dates for March 2023, which will take the British metal legends to Glasgow, Belfast, Limerick and Dublin. The band, who are currently on the road in the USA and Canada with Amon Amarth, Obituary and Cattle Decapitation, released their latest record Torn Arteries last year. Decibel stated that the band’s 7th record is a fusion of “the best elements of virtually every era of the extremely varied Carcass back catalogue”, with Metal Hammer voicing that “Once again, this is Total Carcass. No one does it better. In fact, no one else does it.”

Tickets for the shows are on sale now via the below links.

Ferocious and uncompromising in their execution, CARCASS’s ability to intricately dissect the innards of death metal and rebuild them in their own inimitable way, has been their point of excellence for over three decades. In 2019 the band released their first single in over 5 years ‘Under The Scalpel Blade‘, followed by a 4-song EP in 2020 titled Despicablesetting a potent precedent for their new full length album Torn Arteries. With the album title referencing an old demo created by original drummer Ken Owen back in the 80’s, Torn Arteries sits as a bookend on the modern side of the CARCASS discography, connecting directly back to where everything began over 30 years ago.  

The album artwork also rings reminiscent of the grotesque photography that appears on classic CARCASS album covers like Reek Of Putrefaction and Symphonies of Sickness. Artist Zbigniew Bielak traveled outside his normal wheelhouse to bring forth a time lapsed set of photos showing vegetables shaped like a heart, rotting over time upon a white plate. This form of artwork was influenced by Japanese Kusôzu, meaning: ‘painting of the nine stages of a decaying corpse.’
