Interview: Carcass

Thursday 16th April, 2015 11:38AM

Few bands could ever hope to disappear from the metal scene for a dozen or so years and then return as powerful and relevant as they ever were. But thatís exactly what UK extreme metal pioneers Carcass did in 2007, when the band was brought back to life for a series of celebrated live dates, after being presumed to be dead and buried since the mid-90s.

Early albums from Carcass, like Reek of Putrefaction (1988) and Symphonies of Sickness (1989), were hugely influential on the grindcore (and goregrind) genre. And when Carcass dug deeper into death metal in the 1990s, the band produced another classic album in 1993ís Heartwork. In 2013, Carcass released a brand new album, Surgical Steel, which was critically acclaimed and embraced by long-time and brand new fans the world over. This month, Carcass is touring New Zealand with fellow extreme metal trailblazers Napalm Death. A dream double-headed bill thatís set to smash minds and bodies with shows in Wellington and Auckland.

Before jumping on a plane and heading down this way, Carcass guitarist Bill Steer was gracious enough to take some time to answer a few questions for UnderTheRadar about the bandís return, their upcoming tour, and what the future holds for Carcass...
