[Interview] Bill Steer from Carcass talks Download Festival and new album 'Torn Arteries'
Carcass are back and more brutal than ever!
For over 30 years the masters of brutality have been a major influence in extreme metal and with several classic albums like Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious, Heartwork, Swansong and Surgical Steel, you cant deny that Carcass have set the bar extremely high for other bands and without them the genre wouldn't be the same.
Carcass broke up in 1996 just before the release of their record Swansong and would later rejoin forces in 2007 for a reunion tour which took them all over the globe, but wouldn't be until the release of 2013's Surgical Steel that it really sunk in that Carcass were indeed back for good.
The band are about to return to Australian shores for the massive Download Festival in Sydney and Melbourne as well a string of sideshows throughout the country, giving fans a taste of whats to come from their highly anticipated new album 'Torn Arteries', set to be released on August 7 through Nuclear Blast.
We spoke to Carcass guitarist and co-founder Bill Steer on the Everblack Podcast about their upcoming appearance at Download Festival and sideshows, new album 'Torn Arteries', The Used stealing their album title, his working relationship with Jeff Walker, Cattle Decapitation and more!
