Carcass - 50 Minutes Of New Music Written

An update from Carcass. The British metallers have talked about doing a new record since at least 2016, and now according to guitarist Bill Steer, it's finally happening. Steer told the WSOU radio station that the band has demoed about 50 minutes of new music during Christmas and that they will continue writing until they've got more than enough material.

Steer also said he'd like to hit the studio sometime this year, because he feels like it's been so long since 2013's Surgical Steel was released.

Bill Steer said: "I've sort of lost count of how many years have gone by since that last record, but I think it's around five. And yeah, it feels long overdue that we tackle a new record. We did demo a bunch of stuff at Christmas it was probably close to 50 minutes' worth of music but we're not gonna stop; we're gonna keep on writing so that we've got quite a lot of material and we can pick the best stuff for the album. So quite when it will be recorded definitively, I don't know, but it will have to be this year. I mean, me and Dan [drummer Daniel Wilding] are going stir crazy, really we're so keen to do it."

Guitarist Tom Draper (Pounder, ex-Savage Messiah) replaced Ben Ash after his departure earlier this year.

"Surgical Steel" didn't do much for me. I did not find anything specifically interesting considering the fact that a huge chunk of MSers enjoyed the record.

I'm definitely looking forward to new work.
