Guest review by

17 years have passed since the last Carcass album. In the meantime, the band suffered a lot of problems: 11 years of inactivity, health issues, changes in musical direction for most members, etc. Finally, in 2013 they are back in form with Surgical Steel. The new album is closer to Heartwork compared to the other Carcass albums, which is surely a good thing as Heartwork is one of the best and most important (melodic) death metal albums ever made.

Rating: 10 People wanting this album to be a copy of earlier Carcass album styles are missing the point entirely. Both Jeff and Bill stated that they never want to repeat themselves or become stagnant and confined in a specific genre. What you get here is them trying to appease the old school fans by giving them bits and pieces of previous albums, and for me it works amazing as a comeback thank you for all. I would not mind if Carcass continued where they left off on Swansong and explore new and creative music. Bill has returned to form in this album and with newcomers backing him, they can keep making amazing things.
