Carcass can do no wrong!

You would be forgiven for assuming that the reason five tracks didn't quite make the cut to be included on a full length album was because they simply weren't good enough. However, with the five tracks that comprise Carcass' new EP, Surgical Remission/ Surplus Steel, that couldn't be further from the truth.
Accompanying Carcass' 2013 full length come back, Surgical Steel, this collection of bonus and sessions material more than lives up to the heavyweight melodic Death-Metal legacy of its creators. Although Surplus Steel doesn't contain any typically "heavy", or particularly fast songs, such as "Captive Bolt Pistol", this is still a genuinely crushing selection of material.
"A Wraith In The Apparatus" gets proceedings started the right way, filled to rupturing point with Bill Steer's huge iconic riffs and Jeff Walker's instantly recognisable snarl. The stomping Thrash assault of "Intensive Battery Brooding" turns up the pace a little more, before storming into the groove orientated, "Zochrot". The Death 'n' Roll anomaly, "Livestock Marketplace", makes for a very interesting, yet enjoyable listen. With a comically catchy chorus and easy flowing rhythm, this is a track incomparable to anything else from Surgical or Surplus Steel. Finishing things off is "1985 (Reprise)", an extended version of the Surgical Steel intro. Some may question the need to include an extended version of "1985", but this would be a pointless and greedy complaint to issue after hearing four very satisfying new Carcass tracks.
If these are the songs that weren't quite good enough to make an album, then it is easy to see why Carcass are still the best in the business. These songs might not quite be able to contend with some of the monoliths of Surgical Steel, but that is more of a testament to the brilliance of that album itself. As a whole, Surplus Steel lives up to expectation and will keep the comeback material in the limelight for a long time to come.
