CARCASS Unveil Cover Artwork For “Surgical Steel” AlbumWednesday, 10th July 2013
British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS have revealed the artwork for their forthcoming album, Surgical Steel. In addition, a trailer for the album can be viewed below.
About the album artwork, Jeff Walker states: “We went back to working with Ian Tilton, who is an iconic English photographer famous for working with THE STONE ROSES. He actually did the front cover for Necroticism… as well. We’ve deliberately tried to evoke the feeling of that album and Heartwork.”
The album will be released on September 16 in the U.K., September 13 in the rest of Europe and September 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was produced by Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) and mixed by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY).
Joining guitarist Bill Steer and bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker in CARCASS’ current incarnation are new drummer Dan Wilding (ABORTED, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED) and guitarist Ben Ash (PIG IRON, DESOLATION, LIQUEFIED SKELETON).
