It’s not much of a stretch to say that Carcass’ Surgical Steel will wind up on a lot of year-end lists. The band’s sixth full length, and first since 1996’s hugely disappointing Swan Song, is enough to make people forget about their last record. You’ve already heard “Captive Bolt Pistol” and “The Master Butcher’s Apron,” which should be enough for you to possibly make that decision. Now there’s one more song to help you along with it. The Gauntlet has premiered “Unfit for Human Consumption,” another track from the album, which is set to be released on September 17th. It’s as concise and cutting as the surgical instruments on the album cover, and suddenly, we’re even more psyched for the album.
Surgical Steel will be released on September 17th on Nuclear Blast.
