The four years Nine Inch Nails fans had to wait for a new album is nothing compared to what Carcass fans had to endure. The devoted cult of the highly influential British death metal act had to wait a daunting seventeen years for a new full length record. The aforementioned sixth full length record is Surgical Steel; the first taste of new Carcass since 1996′s Swansong. Just like all albums bands release after a lengthy hiatus, there is a lot of pressure on Surgical Steel and Carcass in general. But one listen to this new forty-seven minute cataclysmic beast and you will question if the band had even went away at all.
