CARCASS “Reek Of Putrefaction” /CD/



Second re-release of the debut full-length album by the legendary British Goregrind/Grindcore band.
Carcass started out as a spin-off of the first Grindcore band ever emerged from the underground, namely Napalm Death. In fact, former Napalm Death member Bill Steer left the band to entirely dedicate himself to his new creature. Therefore, it's quite obvious that on the first Carcass album you can expect a Napalm Death-style Grindcore: noisy, fast and simple off-rhythm structures played with sloppy attitude, but still loud and brutal. Sure, all the aforementioned elements are present, but here we definitely have more than that.
Carcass pushes the nihilism of early Death Metal to the extreme consequences, surmounting the white noise borderline, but in a quite interesting manner. Despite the simplicity of the playing, the musicians prove to be very ingenious, working throughout the songs' phrases to put together a bunch of indiscernible guitar riffs and single-step double-bass-drumming which incredibly end up being focused. The tempos, though mostly built on bar-chords, are widely varied to grab the listener's attention, and are organized with a large sense of song-writing. It's kind of funny, 'cos at first listen this seems to be utter crap, but its hidden value is indisputable.
The vocals are shared by all the three band-members, changing' from guttural to piercing cries and consist of the sickest growling ever.
The lyrics are all about the most terrible pathologies you can imagine of, at times really disgusting, with the clear purpose to shock the audience, but the context is pretty ironic, considering that all the band-members are vegetarians (with Bill even being a vegan).
Album has an apparent anarchic feel that reveals a wide and deep approach to extreme Metal. Back in 1988 this knocked the Metal world on its ass, opening a way that many bands later explored in his entirety. In hindsight, this was a groundbreaking album and still nowadays its a darn' great work!
