23:16 - Czerny Reiter I only have III in physical format and have listened to Sentinel and Gnosis. Didn't seem like it would warrant delving much further.
23:13 - 3rdWorld Yeah I agree on it. It is mostly a problem with his latest for me. His early 2 albums were really sweet.
23:08 - Czerny Reiter I appreciate what the guy aims to achieve, but it is way too meandering and the BM parts are not that engaging. Gorgeous ambiences do compensate somewhat, but the heavier sections are often jarring or plain uninspired.

"So, the new album is done. 15 tracks of unholy gore metal, served on a viscera infested mortuary slab for your audial displeasure, "Corpus In Extremis: Analysing Necrocriticism" will be unleashed some time during March 2009 on Listenable Records.
There will be both a CD and LP version with slightly different track lists, the artwork and photos will also be altered for each release.As usual, the album was recorded at Off Beat studio in Stockholm, but this time by the surgeons themselves so this is a truly self-produced effort. Mastered at the renowned Tailor Maid facilities in Stockholm by mastering wizard Peter In De Betou. Artwork by Sven/Listenable Graphix.
Guitarist Joacim Carlsson of Swedish grindcore metallers General Surgery has issued the following update:
"As of today (October 2nd), we have once again entered the filthy and repulsive confinements of Off Beat Studio to record our second still-untitled full length album. 20 songs will be recorded, and we'll pick the best material to surface on the release. Some new titles to be included are "Plexus Necrosis", "Exotoxic Septicity", "Necronomics" and "Ichor". Due to scheduling conflicts, the new effort will be self-produced and will not utilize the services of Fred Estby Dismember drummer] as previously reported. We hope to finish the recording by mid-November and the release is scheduled for February/March 2009. More news on the album and possible sound snippets as we progress.
