Carcass – Torn Arteries (2021)

Ah, Carcass. How everytime I hear thee, I pine for thoust earlier daze of grinding gore. Carcass at this point is an unrecognisable band, consisting of Steer and Walker and a bunch of other randomers (no disrespect to them – congrats on getting the Carcass gig). Torn Arteries offers me no more than what Surgical Steel already did, and with the reformation hooplah and fanfare having worn off somewhat, I am less than enthused for this shit, I won’t lie.

However! Once one’s ears have adjusted to the toxic modern and over-compressed production, one surely could not argue that Torn Arteries is a bad album. Despite my above paragraph, Torn Arteries does deliver in all things metal, but it also leaves me rather uninspired. If you just want to bang your head then that is absolutely perfectly fine, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who can find many things of worth inside this slab of melodic death metal. But, all I want to do after listening to this is to dig out my vinyl bootleg of Reek lol

(I will admit though, the cover art is really cool)
