carcass was easily one of the most influental and best grindcore/death bands to come out of the NWOBHM movement in the mid-eighties. they formed in Liverpool England, 1985 when guitarist Bill Steer left another one of the first grindcore bands, napalm death, to do a project of his own. He joined with bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker and drummer Ken Owens to make carcass. Their first album, Reek Of Putrefaction, released in 1988, was one of the first "goregrind" albums ever created, mixing hyperfast drums with grinding guitars and gore soaked lyrics, short blasts of fury, normally under a minute and a half. Then on Symphonies of Sickness they kept the goregrind theme and style, but extended their boundaries, making the songs longer and more complex. On their third effort, the last of the carcass goregrind cd's, Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious, they extended even further with thier goregrind, this time even touching on some what was to be melodic death. they were one of the first to open most songs with a sample or some sort of ear candy. This was and still is their most progressive and complex release, due some of the part to the addition of guitarist Michael Amott. This gave Steer a lot more to work with, with soloing and layered guitar work. After this album, in 1993, they went on to release Heartwork, a more polished up but still death album, one of the first melodic death albums ever created. After that, they released Swansong, a more plain old death cd with more political lyrics. Following the departure of Amott (who would join arch enemy), carcass split up. A collection of greatest hits and remastered cds were released afterward, but thats about it.
"Necroticism Descanting The Insalubrious" is just the transition between both genres, while the solos tossed by Michael Amott are Melodic and "Gothenburg" styled (depicted in tracks like "Symposium Of Sickness" (lead: "Necromonism"), "Pedigree Butchery" (lead: "Choicest, prime cuts") etc.) the intense rhythms and beats show the old hostility that Carcass used to execute in their old albums (the overly brutal "Corporal Jigsore Quandary" is the best example to this). That's the final formula actually, Melodic solos with brutal riffs, but this simplistic formula was then improved in their following albums.
This album is probably their best masterpiece (yes they have more than one); the genre mixture makes it suitable for every single metal-head around, and it is actually a must for everyone into both sides of Metal (Melodic or Extreme). I suggest you to buy this immediately, you won't regret it believe me.
