Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious by Carcass

9/10 gbar 5th June 2017

After starting off playing full on goregrind and pretty much pioneering the genre, Carcass initially ended their careers in the mid 90s as one of the leading bands of the new melodic death metal genre. 'Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious', the band's third album, saw Carcass venture towards the melodic death metal path they would eventually go down on 'Heartwork' whilst retaining their goregrind roots, so fans of either the early or late era of the band has the best of both worlds on this album. Songs like "Inpropagation" and "Pedigree Butchery" are finely crafted and very epic while retaining Carcass' signature brutality. Everyone on this album seems to have stepped it up musically more than ever, with Ken Owen's drumming and Jeff Walker's shrieks becomes more effective on this album, while Michael Ammott and Bill Steer make for a great guitar duo as they create technical and memorable solos effortlessly. 'Necroticism - Descanting The Insalubrious' showed Carcass playing at their peak in the 1990s, and is a display of what death metal and grindcore is capable of when you put the two together.
