- Blast beat fans, Carcass are back
ahem….Carcass are not, nor have they ever been blastbeat..now go and learn you musical genres correctly and Wright out a 100 times “i must know my metal heritage before commenting”
they are grindcore or maybe if you are being particularly generous D-beat in the stylee of Tez from discharge.
*goes of to find symphonies of sickness ltd edition picture disc with autopsy piccies (looks like a corpse laden pizza) 😀Posted 4 years ago
Tazzy, my apologies I am suitably chastised. I did my lines wearing my I reek of putrefaction shirt (now a bit snug I grant you) purchased in 1990 on the Symphonies of Sickness tour at the Wrexham War Memorial club, one of Mikes first gigs. Happy times. Just a shame Ken can’t be a part of it againPosted 4 years agokayak23Subscriber
Is this the same Carcass from the start of Napalm Death era? The ones with all meaty parts on the album cover?
They sound a tadge more polished now 😯
I went to a hardcore all-dayer at the Hummingbird in Brum in the early 90’s, with Carcass, Napalm Death, Bolthrower and Morbid Angel..Posted 4 years ago
All sounded a bit rawer then… Too polished these days imho..

that was an ace gig..did you see morbid angel with pitchshifter supporting there as well? and bolthrower all that sort of eraPosted 4 years ago
Tazzy, yeah was a regular at the Tiv, Rockworld Manchester, KrazyHouse and Stairways.
A few of us went to every single gig at the memo, particularly remember demolition hammers drummer being carried off stage as he was so dehydrated after their support set.
I got on well with Karl and Gully who promoted there (and often lost money to see bands they loved).Played there a few times and at the Tiv and other venues mentioned.
South Wales now, still get to a good few gigs.Posted 4 years ago
i saw autopsy/PL at bradford queen’s hall, autopsy were incredible.Posted 4 years ago
morbid angel too- saw them in a place called the 244 club on westgate road in newcastle, which was basically a house. and they played in what was the lounge, complete with crappy 70s style gas fire and a sofa in the corner of the room too. it was an ace night, that!
Mikey, agree with that most times, but one of my favourite bands Sabbat were even better live the second time around, when they were doing it just for fun as a lads weekend. I hope Carcass will be the same, they sound pretty tight with the new line up.
Taz, would dearly like to see most screamo kiddies teleported back to the late 80s early 90s = Slayer in Manchester, Biohazard or Bomb Everything at the Tiv, truly violent pits, you came out looking like you’d been sparing with Tyson.
Best pit I’ve revisited in modern times was in Brum, Slayer world painted blood at the 02 academy, second half of the set was brutal – limped back to the safety of the bar after 20 mins, couldn’t take the pace any more!Posted 4 years agomikey74Member
The thing with Carcass is they pretty much ran their course the first time around, which kinda renders this lil get-together a bit desperate.
I’ll probably listen to the album and see them live but I’ll be very surprised if we are still talking about this album in glowing terms next year. Much like the new Sabbath.

The O2 in Brum does tend to have a very lively crowd, the fiercest Gig I’ve been to recently was the Machine Head/Hatebreed double header there in 2010, a swirling maelstrom from start to finish I tell thee.
Most ferocious ever? Probably the Stampin’ Ground gigs in pub basements, only time I’ve ever been properly knocked unconscious was against the downstairs bar at the Flapper.Posted 4 years agovdubber67Member
Carcass haven’t sounded ‘like Carcass’ for a long time now. Neither have ND really. That didn’t sound too far a departure from Heartwork, and that was 20 years ago! Be interested to yea what the vocals sound like.
Ken was a student at the music tech college I worked at about 6 years ago. Actually the owner of the college business was the ex Carcass tour manager come to think about it!Posted 4 years ago
