Carcass releasing new EP

Metalnews Power of Metal.dk
British extreme metal icons CARCASS, will release a collection of unreleased and hard to find tracks this November entitled the »Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel« EP.

All the songs were recorded during the »Surgical Steel« sessions, which was produced by Colin Richardson (NAPALM DEATH, BOLT THROWER, GOREFEST, CANNIBAL CORPSE, SINISTER, RODRIGO Y GABRIELA) and mixed/mastered by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, TESTAMENT).

The EP will be release on physical and digital formats on November 14 (Europe) and November 17 (UK).

“Well, let’s call this tying up loose ends,” commented frontman Jeff Walker. “We thought we’d make all the tracks available from the »Surgical Steel« album session available on an EP… just in case you bought the Jewel Case version, DIDN'T buy the Digipak, didn’t buy the Japanese Import, or maybe you never bought the DECIBEL Magazine issue with the flexi disc? Well here you go; ALL the songs on one disc along with an previously unreleased track. Even Trevor Strnad’s arm makes a guest appearance! Enjoy.”

1. A Wraith In The Apparatus

CARCASS released »Surgical Steel« last September and came in at #41 on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart, just narrowly avoiding the dreaded “top 40 band” moniker.

Even with their impressive back catalogue, »Surgical Steel« has given the band their highest charting and possibly most critically acclaimed record to date.
