What can I say of Carcass, a band that changed their style in every album and yet remains one of the most important and adored groups in the history of metal?
Well, there's a lot to say, but all my words will be directed to Heartwork now.
Although Gothenburg scene is claimed to have invented Melodic Death Metal, every Carcass fan knows that Heartwork is the genre's true origin.
Heavy and brutal song structures, beautiful twin-guitar melodies (which sound close to Thin Lizzy's), fast riffs, harsh vocals, melodic guitar solos and powerful blast-beats. All of this perfectly defines Melodic Death Metal, as made in a flawless way by Carcass in Heartwork.
Surely one of the greatest albums of all time, not only of Metal. You can't die without hearing this album first! A must-have!
