Second re-release on CD of the second full-length album by the legendary British Goregrind/Grindcore band.
While this album still retains the Goregrind style of "Reek Of Putrefaction", now the sound became more characteristic of Death Metal. If "Reek Of Putrefaction" was one series of brusque, quick, and brute explosions after another, "Symphonies Of Sickness", as its title indicated, is something of a complex step up. None of the power is lost at all, but thanks to a combination of crisper recording and a desire on the part of the band to stretch things out a bit more (three- to-five-minute-long songs and so forth) Carcass here play with their enjoyably ugly sound just enough.
This is a succulent Death Metal record that keeps its roots to a degree in Grindcore, and leaves a strong impression in the listener’s mind, even years after first hearing it!
In February 2009, “Symphonies Of Sickness” was ranked number 4 in Terrorizer's list of essential European Grindcore albums.
