5.0 out of 5 stars Goregrind splatter to Death Metal platter..., 5 Nov. 2007
By 
This review is from: Necroticism - Descanting the Insalubrious (Audio CD)
Carcass proved that the glimmers of genius they presented to us on their first two fuzz packed records, was ready to burst out into what they had always subconciously wanted to play. Grind tinged death metal with real melody, but shredding riffs and concrete drum barages !!!
Adding the ever young looking Michael Amott to their ranks, they gained a real thinker in melodic guitar metal, but took nothing from their famous aggressive streak.
The opener 'Inpropagation', starts with a recorded mortuary sample, and then cuts into one of the best riffs Carcass have ever written.
Lyrically they are still messing about with medical and pathological text books, and it doesn't really matter whats being said, as its all pretty much redundant any way.
Steer's backing biled growl is sparce but a perfect echo to Jeff Walker's loud bellow.
Its no coincidence that Amott (who gets younger every year to look at) co-wrote the most memorable tracks on the album. 'Incarnated Solvent Abuse' was the first single/ video off the album, and its just quality Carcass.
'Corporal Jigsore Quandry' has possibly the best riff released on any album in 1991, certainly the best on any Carcass album. The opening 30 seconds is enough to tear buildings down with just by playing it loud enough !!!
Carcass went on after this to "change" their style, and become much more melodic, which, if you read any of the interviews they did as kids, listen to any of their former bands or generally take a guess, they either got old or bored. Shame. This was just starting to look good.
Amott went off to do Arch Enemy. And he's done a pretty good job of it so far.
The little samples, linking the tracks with their blackened humour, the totally gut wrenching riffs of tracks like 'Pedigree Butchery', mad names such as 'Lavaging Expectorate of Lysergide Composition' and the last, morbid shreds of repeaded riffs finishing off the final track, all come together to make a thoroughly one off album.
Many have copied, none have ever quite equalled.
