Liverpool’s legendary Death Metal pioneers Carcass (who still tour extensively to this day) are often credited with shaping the entire death metal genre. Pushing boundaries with their shocking imagery whilst evolving and innovating with each new album.
Reek of Putrefaction, originally released in 1988, gave the band their ‘Goregrind’ identity breeding the genres of grindcore and deathmetal.
Presented with their famously controversial artwork consisting of extremely vivid images taken from a medical dictionary.
Pressed from the original master tapes. These albums have been specially recreated using “fdr” full dynamic range mastering allowing the music’s nuances to shine through and giving these classic albums a more ferocious and dynamic sound, enabling the listener to immerse in the full audio heaviness like never before.
