Death Metal/Goregrind formation Carcass have been around since 1986. They called it quits ten years later, but reformed in 2007. They are widely considered to be the Founding fathers of the Melodic Death Metal genre. They've been working on their 7th full-length studio album, titled: "Torn Arteries", which will see the light of day on August the 7th. As of yet, very little is known, apart from its title and release date.

First Delay


Carcass was originally planning on releasing their new album Torn Arteries this fall. Now that's not happening anymore thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of physical media manufacturing plants.

Well there's no way our new album is gonna get release in August now, what with the ongoing pandemic, CD & vinyl manufacturers have closed and label distribution has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. There's more pressing things to be concerned with right now, correct? Bunker down, look after yourselves, let's see the next few months through and we'll get the album released as soon as there's some kind of return to "normality". Enjoy this tune in the meantime.

In a recent interview, guitarist Bill Steer tells Heavy that the album's title pays homage to ex-drummer Ken Owen and his fictitious band of the same name.

"He had a fictitious band called Torn Arteries and he recorded everything himself in his bedroom — guitar and he'd actually bang on boxes and kind of scream into the mic. And the whole thing was so distorted, it kind of sounded super heavy, even though essentially you were listening to a guy with a Spanish guitar and a couple of boxes. I think Jeff appreciates the connection to the past and the fact that it was another Ken Owen classic. So that was his choice, really, and it stuck."

Steer also said that the album title is a tribute Owen and his ongoing recovery. Owen left the band in 1996 and suffered a brain hemorrhage in 1999.

"I can't remember when this came up, but we were doing some press conference at a festival, and I think we all kind of agreed that even though Ken isn't playing in the band as such right now, he's kind of involved in everything we do, stylistically, because when he was so unique — when he was playing drums, his approach was just totally different. Also, the riffs he came up with, they were just really far out there. They were loads of fun to learn. I still think, as a guitar player, some of the stuff was very unorthodox and it was quite a challenge. That kind of influence still runs through what we do today. Just as a friendship thing, we're all still in touch regularly, and it's just been great to see Ken's life stabilizing. Basically, he has a good standard of living and he's a happy guy."

Postponed for second time and EP


CARCASS's new album, "Torn Arteries", was originally scheduled for release in August but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic which is sweeping the globe.

New Release Date, Tracklist and more


The legendary Carcass have finally unveiled the details to Torn Arteries, the long-awaited new album that will serve as the successor to 2013's comeback effort, Surgical Steel. A new song, "Kelly's Meat Emporium" has also been released.

Torn Arteries, Carcass' seventh full length record, will be out on Sept. 17 on Nuclear Blast Records and was originally intended to be released last year, but those plans were derailed by the pandemic. Instead, the band issued a four-song EP, Despicable, to tide fans over and one of those tracks, "Under the Scalpel Blade," will also appear on the forthcoming release.

The group, who is largely credited with inventing the goregrind genre and later helped popularize melodic death metal, was venerated for their ability to seamlessly merge sounds from across their catalog on Surgical Steel, a tradition which has been executed masterfully on "Kelly's Meat Emporium" as well.

Winding melodies, eager and snarling riffs, perfectly timed blast beats and even some rock moments present on the divisive Swansong album all coalesce on this latest single.
