Carcass: details of 'Surgical Steel' special edition
"Surgical Steel", the new full-length album from reactivated British extreme metal pioneers Carcass, will be released on September 16 in the U.K., September 13 in the rest of Europe and September 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was produced by Colin Richardson (Fear Factory, Machine Head, Napalm Death, Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine) and mixed by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Accept, Exodus, Arch Enemy).

"Surgical Steel" will be available on several collectible formats, which can now be ordered with or without an exclusive t-shirt design here.

Joining guitarist Bill Steer and bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker in Carcass' current incarnation are new drummer Dan Wilding (Aborted, Trigger The Bloodshed) and guitarist Ben Ash (Pig Iron, Desolation, Liquefied Skeleton).

Carcass' first studio Lp since 1996's "Swansong" will feature guest vocals from original sticksman Ken Owen.

In a recent interview with Chile's Radio Futuro, Walker stated about the new Carcass Cd: "We think we've made a good album, so it's gonna be very interesting when people get to hear the record. We can't wait to see what people think."

He continued: "It sounds like Carcass. Even the drumming sounds like Carcass. Everything about it… I think it's gonna shock people, how good it is. I think it's got all the elements that people like, yet it still sounds fresh. So that's all I can say, really, 'cause we don't really sound like any other band, and the fact that after 17 years, we wrote music and it still sounds like Carcass, I think it's good."

Regarding the direction of the forthcoming Carcass album, Walker previously stated: "We've taken stylistic cues from all the albums because it's in our blood, but it's no rehash or mess of ideas. I think it sounds almost like the missing link between the third and forth albums but with some groove in there. I've jokingly christened some parts 'trad blast' and some 'death sleaze'… don't think for a minute this is just some nostalgic throwback album — we're setting up another 17 years of ideas for other bands to copy and clean up on. [laughs]"
