Carcass, the legendary British metal band who created the Gore-Grind genre and set the bar for melodic Death Metal, is dropping its new album, Surgical Steel, this September 17th in the U.S. As a special preview for impatient fans, you can already stream and download the track “Captive Bolt Pistol“ courtesy of Nuclear Blast.
Surgical Steel is the band’s sixth full length album, and their first record since 1996, so you can imagine just how highly it’s been anticipated. When the band decided to take a break after their last record, fans weren’t sure they were ever going to return. In 2007, the Metal world got its wish as Carcass reformed to play several sold-out reunion shows around the world. Re-motivated, the band has decided to come out with this brand new album, bringing joy to fans around the globe.
This time around, joining guitarist Bill Steer and vocalist/bassist Jeff Walker will be drummer Dan Wilding and guitarist Ben Ash. Both of these talented musicians have been part of other Metal bands such as Aborted, Trigger The Bloodshed, Pig Iron, Desolation and Liquefied Skeleton. In addition, original skinsman Ken Owen will be providing guest vocals too.
Show Carcass how glad you are they’re back by downloading “Captive Bolt Pistol” now, and keep your eyes peeled for Surgical Steel in September. Until then, check out this album trailer. It’s definitely worth watching, no matter what your taste in music is!
