Carcass - Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious LP (Black vinyl)


A midpoint between Carcass' early grind albums (Reek, Symphonies), and their more melodic albums (Heartwork, Swansong), Necroticism offers the best of both sides of Carcass. The somewhat free-flowing song structures from the grind days are still present, as are Bill Steer's ultra-low bellows (which, along with Jeff Walker's rasps, are still belching out obscene lyrics). With the addition of guitarist Michael Amott, much more melody was injected into the band's sound, which would be explored further on Heartwork.
