Carcass Announce New Album for September, Release Ripping First Single

The last new music we heard from death metal legends Carcass was in September of 2020, when the band dropped singles from last year’s Despicable EP. But now, Carcass have announced the official release date to their long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s Surgical Steel, and have dropped a new single to boot.

Carcass’ new album is titled Torn Arteries, and will be released September 17th via Nuclear Blast. The first single, “Kelly’s Meat Emporium,” is a solid mixture of the band’s various flavors from over the years — jazzy groove metal, galloping death-thrash, and of course wily, grind-oriented death metal. It’s a killer reminder of just how epic Surgical Steel was, and how awesome this record promises to be.

Check out the track below:
