Most B-side albums are lazy but in this posthumous collection Liverpudlians Carcass showed that they were not happy just to churn out records with one awesome song and nine cack ones. From 1987 to 1996 Carcass were a band with a huge cult following, and with the dearth of bands nowadays who write anything more than numetal or pretentious art-rock music, they are even more missed. These B sides are less morbid and grim than the subject matter on their first three albums. Certainly the sessions from the last two albums yielded bluesy and rock n roll type songs with maximum air guitar riffage, marking the change of direction. It's not exactly Elvis but with songs with titles like Rot N Roll and Corporate Rock Sucks the band did have a sense of humour at least. The actual music itself still sounds like the music of the albums, just that the lyrics are less morbid.
Opener Edge of Darkness is a superb B-side, surprisingly dropped from inclusion on the Swansong album. Emotional Flatline and Ever Increasing Circles are OK, but Blood Spattered Banner is pretty good as well. Corporate Rock Sucks, another B-side from the 1995 Swansong sessions, is excellent, with a memorable hook from Messrs Steer and Amott. Buried Dreams (with the intro from Ruptured Purulence) and No Love Lost are Peel sessions from 1993, and here they sound superb, leaving many who never got to see the band live kicking themselves. There are demo versions of Rot N Roll and Edge of Darkness, which have "filler" written all over them. But the two B-sides of the Heartwork single, Rot N Roll and This Is Your Life, could well have made it onto that album. The last 5 odd tracks are OK but nothing special, some taken from label samplers and EPs.
This is well worth getting if you've got any of the band's albums.

Carcass started out as a slightly sloppy but ground-breakingly extreme goregrind band, and ended up a neutered whimpish version of their old selves, but between those extremes they produced some of the best extreme metal ever made. This worthy compilation is stuffed with non-album obscurities from all eras of the band, chronologically:
1989 - ‘Exhume to Consume’ is taken from the original Grindcrusher compilation album, and is almost identical to the version from Symphonies of Sickness, just with the addition of a spooky feedback intro. From the Pathological compilation album comes ‘Genital Grinder II’, a superior recording of the opener from their debut album, and the frankly brilliant epic ‘Hepatic Tissue Grinder’, a song which points the way to the longer more complex songs on Necroticism.
1991 – From Carcass golden Necroticism period come 3 EP tracks – new song ‘Tools of the Trade’, and two new versions of old favourites ‘Pyosisified (Still Rotten to the Gore)’ and another version of ‘Hepatic Tissue Fermentation’. Perhaps aware that they would soon be heading into more commercial territories Carcass offered these uptempo blasters as a treat for the fans, and these songs represent the last of the original genius Carcass before the quality control started to slip…
1993 – While the Heartwork album found the band beginning to dismantle all of the aspects that made Carcass unique these two B-Sides ‘This Is Your Life’ and ‘Rot N’ Roll’ are surprisingly strong tracks – superior in fact to many of the tracks on Heartwork album itself.

This posthumous compilation provides an intersting retrospective view of one of the finest metal bands in history.
There is a mixture of unreleased tracks from studio sessions and rare B-side / EP tracks spanning their whole career.
The first selection is from the "Swansong" sessions. The songs are slicky ironic including "I told you so (Corporate rock really does suck)" marking their shift to Columbia records. There are also tracks from the "Tools of the Trade" EP, a Radio One session, "Heartwork" EP, "Grindcrusher" EP and rare "Pathological compilation" tracks.
The music spans from the gore days through to the mature and cultured final incrnation. The sleeve notes are comprehensive chronicaling the history of the band.
A fitting memorial to a unique group of artists. Carcass RIP (Rot In Peace)!
