People already know this band, they already know this album as well and most of them really love what they hear when playing it; I've always seen this piece differently, for me it's more than just a great album to play, I think this album clearly represents the art of versatility, musical appreciation and evolution more than anything I've heard in Extreme Metal all over the years.
Carcass used to play a raw kind of metal which was very different from what 1988 was used to, the Goregrind genre appeared thanks to their debut album called "Reek Of Putrefaction" and people has been ripping their sound off ever since. Yeah, many bands rip other bands off, that's quite common, but have you ever seen a band that gets copycatted by two different genres? The interesting thing about Carcass is that they pioneered two exceedingly different genres in their times; the brutally and insanely sickening "Goregrind" genre and the mid-paced and mildly aggressive genre known as "Melodic Death Metal".
"Necroticism Descanting The Insalubrious" is just the transition between both genres, while the solos tossed by Michael Amott are Melodic and "Gothenburg" styled (depicted in tracks like "Symposium Of Sickness" (lead: "Necromonism"), "Pedigree Butchery" (lead: "Choicest, prime cuts") etc.) the intense rhythms and beats show the old hostility that Carcass used to execute in their old albums (the overly brutal "Corporal Jigsore Quandary" is the best example to this). That's the final formula actually, Melodic solos with brutal riffs, but this simplistic formula was then improved in their following albums.
This album is probably their best masterpiece (yes they have more than one); the genre mixture makes it suitable for every single metal-head around, and it is actually a must for everyone into both sides of Metal (Melodic or Extreme). I suggest you to buy this immediately, you won't regret it believe me.
Best Tracks: "Corporal Jigsore Quandary", "Forensic Clinicism/The Sanguine Article", "Incarnated Solvent Abuse"
|Carcass is one of the most influencial bands in the entire Death Metal scene, starting as a Grindcore outfit in the 80's and moving to more straight Death Metal territories later, these brits shared with the world their brutality and their undecifrable lyrics (only understandable for doctors)
With Necrotism they reached their highpoint as a brutal band, 'cos they moved to more melodic teritories with "Heartwork".
