Review Summary: Liverpool gave the world Beatles.. and then it gave us.. .CARCASS!!!!!


Carcass- Heartwork... Wow!!. Amazing album from the UK lads works on so many levels.
It has the riffs, the grind, the chug, the grime and not to mention Mind-Blasting(Russell Peters) solos.
This album is the reason why I consider Bill Steer to be god.

Heartwork not only redfined the grindcore genre but gave birth to melodic death metal and Arch Enemy.
I can still find so many ideas from this album in Michael Amott's work in early Arch Enemy albums.

Opens with 'Buried dreams' with a sinister riff and then transforms into staple Carcass antics, the second one,
'Carnal forge' is IMO one of the greatest metal song ever, the first solo by Bill steer is majestic.
'No love lost' is a nice change of pace and has a really stop and go feel with some really innovative riffing by
guitarist, Steer and Amott.Another notable track is 'This mortal coil' which I feel serves as the blueprint for all
the melodic death metal that came after.

The production is top notch in the old school mould, the guitar sound is thick and razor sharp at the same time,
Jeff Walker is at his bile-spitting best and the star of the show, Ken Owen is sublime.

The artwork is amazing and unique, the album length is just right and the lyrics are scathing centered on politics,
self-loathing and society.

This album was way ahead of its time when it came out and still blows other albums right out of the water.

Thank you, Bill Steer and Co.
