Today is like OH MY GOD!!Having almost 250 unique music suggestions covering a vast range from classic vintage rock to the most brutal death metal and never until now touched the majestic (?) Carcass band!
First we must take our distances from the previous suggestion that paid it’s homage to the boss with his working class’s ease of plain hard rock for the little guy, we turn the boilers waaaay on!
Having difficulty to place today’s band in a stand-alone genre of Metal, we have to choose their brightest moment which is –in my opinion- a kind of melodic (?!?!?) Death Metal, not the progressive way Death intended, nor the grind-like brutality of CCorpse’s releases, despite the fact that they are still considered amongst the pioneers of grindcore. Nevertheless the period we chose to cover is without doubt, the period between their 2nd and 4rth release (1989 – 1993).
The source (wiki) states: «Carcass are a British extreme metal band from Liverpool, who formed in 1985 and disbanded in 1995. A reformation was enacted in 2007 without one of its original members, drummer Ken Owen, due to health reasons. Carcass are regarded as pioneers of the grindcore genre. Their early work was also tagged as splatter death metal, hardgore, and goregrind; on account of their morbid lyrics and gruesome album covers. They also became one of the pioneers of melodicdeath metal with their 1993 album Heartwork.
The band is influenced by death metal and grindcore bands like Death, Repulsion, Master, Macabre, and other metal acts such as Slayer, King Diamond, Wargasm and Diamond Head. Otrebor of black metal band Botanist cites Carcass' use of medical dictionary terms in lyrics and song titles as a precedent for its lyrics and song titles from plant and insect dictionaries.»
