CARCASS has been dominating the “Album of the Year” spot in several publications including the latest issue of Decibel Magazine. But that’s just one of several victories as of late! Upon its release Surgical Steel came in at #41 on the U.S. Billboard Top 200 Chart, just narrowly avoiding the dreaded “Top 40 band” moniker. Even with their impressive back catalogue, Surgical Steel has given the band their highest charting and possibly most critically acclaimed record to date.

Surgical Steel was produced by Colin Richardson (NAPALM DEATH, BOLT THROWER, GOREFEST, CANNIBALCORPSE, SINISTER, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA) and mixed/mastered by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, TESTAMENT). Regarding the cover artwork, CARCASS bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker has stated. “We went back to working with Ian Tilton, who is an iconic English photographer famous for working with THE STONE ROSES. He actually did the front cover for Necroticism... as well. We've deliberately tried to evoke the feeling of that album and Heartwork.” Joining Walker and guitarist Bill Steer in the band's current incarnation are new drummer Dan Wilding (ABORTED, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED) & guitarist Ben Ash (PIG IRON, DESOLATION, LIQUEFIED SKELETON). Original sticksman Ken Owen contributed guest vocals as well.

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 mour
