Surgical Steel is a balancing act that Carcass, the masters of not one but two sub-genres, have put forth after dropping out of the partially blocked views of their long-haired fans. Setting the album off to a start is the track 1985 (No Bowling for Soup jokes, please. a warm-up of sorts before the duo of Ben Ash and Bill Steer embark on a series of assaults. Setting the premise, for what is in all probability a masterpiece of a comeback, with the calm of a lull before the storm, 1985 features a bluesy down tempo lick which should have most of their Heartwork fans prick their ears
Surgical Steel will be released on September 16 (UK), September 13 (Rest of Europe) and September 17 (North America).
