Carcass — Surgical Steel

Estimated reading time: 2 minute(s)

★★★☆ An excellent return to form, with a sound that places the band somewhere between “Descanting…” and “Heartwork.” It’s far more mature than either, and mostly devoid of the crassly overt commercialilsm of the latter. Despite the rumors of trouble during production, “Surgical Steel” does not disappoint. Also, I guarantee that you’ll be wanting to learn this chant: “6! 0! 2! 6! 9! 6, 1!”
