There's nothing quite like the sound of metal bands slowing down a bit,---fabulous melodies and harmonies all backed by the muscle of precision thrash,
plus it leaves plenty of room for light and shade as the whole thing erupts from loud and fast to louder and much faster.
"Heartwork" sets the tone for Swansong, for me it's both a move out of the swamp of thrash and a work in progress towards, dare I say it, a commercial sound--
if the sound of Death rattling out his words of misery over the metal miasma could sell. Still, Slayer* did it without Death on vocals.
Carcass are more down to earth, less worldwide wrestling.
Jeff Walker apparently wanted more bass and you can see why when you compare Heartwork to Swansong but I dunno, it might muddy up the bass drums...
Anyhoo this album made me feel good to the point of laughing out loud which is what music should do.
A Must Have.
Mmmmmmm... uplifting metal............

*Just thought I'd edit this to say goodbye to Jeff Hanneman

Since1993 this album has been my top 10 most frequently listened death metal albums and one of my favourite albums ever.
Everything done here is done well with open mind and strong hand of metal. Highly recommended along with DEATH "Spiritual Healing", CANNIBAL CORPSE "Tomb of the Mutilated", MORBID ANGEL "Blessed are the Sick", NAPALM DEATH "Harmony Corruption", DEICIDE "Deicide" and some more

Just such a fine album. Ive never checked out Carcass before even though Ive been in death metal for over 20 years. I figured since Im going see the guys at Bloodstock I had better check them out....and Im bloody glad I did!
Good catchy metal, great riffs, great hooks and even harmonies.
Buy this album. I got it on cd then loved it so much I now have it on vinyl. Awesome.
Now you guys must get Surgical Steel....

Forget about the remastering thing, this is a great repress on heavy black vinyl, dead flat, and shiny!
The album clearly uses the old stampers. A1/B1. At the current prices of the rare original edition this is a steal!

Best Carcass ever and a great warm-up for the new 2013 album.
Absolutely recommended!

An amazing masterpiece and sums up Carcass the best. Great recording quality and amazing songs. You'd be a fool not to own this!

THE best metal album of the 1990s. If you don't own it, you are clearly a false metallion.
