Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel (EP)
The legendary CARCASS have released several classic albums over the years and changed the trajectory of extreme metal with each consecutive release. Whether it was inventing gore-grind (»Reek of Putrefaction« & »Symphonies of Sickness«) or creating the template for melodic death metal (»Heartwork«), CARCASS has always made records by which bars were set and rules were broken. Upon their untimely demise in 1996, fans mourned the loss of this seminal act and lived in hope that the group would one day be exhumed from their premature grave. After an 18 year hiatus, CARCASS has been fully reanimated, highlighted by their new release »Surgical Steel« - one of the most important albums of 2013.
The band are now set to release a collection of rare and unreleased tracks this November, titled »Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel«. The tracks 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).
“Well, let’s call this tying up loose ends,” commented 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 an previously unreleased track. Even Trevor Strnad’s arm makes a guest appearance! Enjoy.”
