Anyone here Carcass fans, pretty awesome band, There first recordings are also some of the worst production of anything anywhere biggrin.gif But i think that made them more unqiue! but as time went on, there skills developed tremendously into the riff-tastic overlords of the Medical-textbook-Gore-Humour metal band i know and love, check em out!

PS
If any of you like Arch Enemy, Michale Amott of Arch Enemy played with carcass for a few years in the mid-90s before him and his brother formed Arch Enemy.

Carcass - Heartwork
Carcass - Keep On Rotting In The Free World
Carcass - Corporeal Jogsore Quandary


EDIT

Wow, looking back on this, i made so many spelling mistakes laugh.gif

Believe it or not (coming from a Holdsworth etc fan) I like Carcass. Saw them once live - short but very intense set, about 20 mins and 30 or so songs. Got into them because of the late great John Peel on UK BBC Radio 1. Didn't they once have the record for the shortest track with the longest title (perhaps a record now owned by Nile?)?

Cheers,
Tony

As an aside - when I want to convince my daughter and wife that I have zero dress sense (and it usually doesn't take too much to convince them) I sometimes wear an old Carcass 'Stink of putrefaction' T-Shirt: if that fails then a Dwarves or Black Flag one does the trick tongue.gif .

Cheers,
Tony

I enjoy listening to Carcass.

My favorite is "Buried Dreams" off of Heartwork:

Carcass - Buried Dreams

The quality of this isn't very good, though.

I love the old stuff more than the new stuff on the whole but those 3 are classics smile.gif

I cant pick between the old and the new, Symphonies Of Sickness, and Heartwork are probably my preferred albums though.

Carcass was my intro to death metal back in high school. Ever since I saw the Heartwork video on MTV Japan, I was hooked.

Just read this update from the reunion of one of my all-time favorite bands, and was too excited to NOT start a thread about them here. For someone like me who was >10 years old when the band split up, and never able to see them live, this is very exciting news. I guess I should say "promising" news because they have yet to announce any plans of touring in my continent, but hopefully it will happen!! At the minimum I figure that I'll at least get to see some video of these reunited extreme metal masters!

Michael Amott reports from Carcass rehearsals April 2008 + new photos
Category: Music

Dear Carcasses!

Firstly, I’d like to thank all the people who have been posting comments and sending messages since we announced the reunion.
I can tell you that we feel very inspired by your enthusiasm and excitement for the shows this summer!

Also, special thanks to the lovely Kristelle for designing and maintaining the only official Carcass MySpace page!

Well… There is finally some news to report from the Carcass camp!

We got together last week and spent seven days straight rehearsing and preparing a set for the European festivals we have booked for the summer.

Jeff Walker (Bass, Vocals) and Bill Steer (Guitar, Vocals) flew in to the south of Sweden (where I live) and we got down to business!

The vibe was great during the week of rehearsals and a ’jolly good time’ was had by all!

The Carcass songs are still such amazing innovative pieces of music to me, challenging and rewarding to play.

For me personally it has been a very gratifying process to reconnect with Jeff Walker and Bill Steer again, on both a musical and personal level. There were so many jokes and old anecdotes going around – I just basically spent the whole week laughing my ass off… Looks this reunion is good idea!

We don’t have a confirmed set list set in stone yet, but we rehearsed songs from all five Carcass albums, I am guessing it’s no surprise to you out there that we are building the set around a huge blood dripping chunk of ’Heartwork’ tunes!?

I was a huge fan of the band before I joined Carcass – so playing the songs from the first two albums ’Reek Of Putrefaction’ and ’Symphonies Of Sickness’ (that I did not perform/write on) is still a thrill for me. Extreme Death/Grind master class!

Hearing Jeff and Bill trading vocals on ’Exhume To Consume’ again was INSANE! They both sung and played so great by the way.
Jeff’s vocals are so disturbingly hateful - it’s beautiful music to my ears… And Bill Steer is still the riff machine and SICK, outlandish lead player. These guys deliver goods. Goose bump material!

Original drummer Ken Owen whom unfortunately can’t be a part of the reunion due to health reasons is replaced for the upcoming shows by Daniel (Erlandsson – Arch Enemy) who is killing the drum parts – no surprise there really!? Basically, it’s all coming together in perfect distorted harmony!

We will be getting together again in a few weeks to continue the rehearsals…

I’ll be doing my best to practice and memorize the 1,297 or so riffs and solo’s – I’ll have it all nailed come the first show June 6th, promise!

And finally, before we get swamped with "why aren’t you playing in my city/country???" messages - we are talking about doing more shows in other territories outside of Europe, if there is enough interest that is! Let’s see what happens over the next few weeks/months. We’ll keep you updated on all confirmed shows here! Keep on rotting!

Such an awesome band. After finally learning most of the songs from Arch Enemy's "Rise of the Tyrant", I tuned my ESP down to B and moved on this weekend to learning songs from Carcass' "Heartwork" album. I've got "Embodiment" and "Death Certificate" (such a fun song to play!) down so far and I've started working on "Buried Dreams". I can't believe I waited this long to learn some Carcass!

One thing that's annoyed me so far: I haven't been able to find a good Guitar Pro or tab text-file for "Heartwork" (the song). They either have it tabbed out for a 7-string or in the wrong tuning, or just plain wrong!
