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!

Thrashing melodic death metal the way only Carcass knows how. Carcass is on of the most respected band in the genre and this album might just be their best. Heartwork is a masterpice and should be a part of any serious head-banger's collection, period.

Stunning, high quality heavy metal. A must have for any death metal fan. Fluid melody lines and chugging riffery make this one of the best heavy metal albums ever released

A classic album of when Carcass really left the grindcore and switched to death metal. A talented attempt and still as good today as ever.

The fourth full length record from Carcass showed another progression from the ever evolving death metal merchants.
One which alienated a lot of the hardcore fanbase but hopefully introduced more people to the carcoffiny.

Heartwork is a clinical, shiny and heavy slab of chunky metal tunery with some of the tracks almost taking on a dare I say "pop metal" edge. No bad thing as far as Im concerned with Carcass and they would take this further on their next and last release "Swansong." But here on "Heartwork" we have great metal songs like "Arbeit Macht Fleisch" "No Love Lost" "Buried Dreams" and the title track plus a host of other chuggin tunes which just beg me to bang head and foot. I also think that on this album the guitar solos from Steer and Amott are at times just so tasty and well written they stick in my head for days....and thats just guitar solos!!!!

Do yourselves a favour and dont be put off by any "Carcass go commercial" nonsense. This is just a great metal album. nuff said!

WOW! I heard the title track heartwork accidently and i got a huge tingle and shiver down my back! Quite simply without Carcss and At the gates, metal would be less rich! Amazing melodic metal that will blow you away!!
