Speaking exclusively to Terrorizer magazine, British extreme metal legends Carcass have revealed that their new album title will be "Surgical Steel." This will be their first album since 1996's, "Swansong" and the first not to feature drummer, Ken Owen, whose place will be taken by Trigger the Bloodshed skinsman Daniel Wilding.

Guitarist Bill Steer told Terrorizer: "I found myself playing riffs that sounded like Carcass. This was after the band had finished the whole reunion cycle of shows and festivals. So officially I would have been playing with other bands and stuff, but for some reason whenever I picked up a guitar at home I was coming up with riffs that sounded like Carcass.

"I got on the phone to Jeff [Walker, bass/vocals] and said, ‘We could have a crack at writing a couple of tunes and seeing if they’re strong enough and take it from there’. We also agreed, if it didn’t sound like Carcass or have that kind of vibe to it, we would just drop it. So that was the thing, we got together and started working on some stuff and just immediately got the excitement back very quickly."

The album will contain fifteen tracks, and while the final tracklisting has yet to be confirmed, the names of the recorded songs are as follows:

"The Master Butcher’s Apron"
"The Granulating Dark Satanic Mills"
"A Congealed Clot Of Blood"
"A Wraith In The Apparatus"
"316l Grade Surgical Steel"
"Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System"
"Captive Bolt Pistol"
"Intensive Battery Brooding"
"None Compliance To Astm F899-12 Standard"
"Mount Of Execution"
"1985/Thrasher’s Abattoir"
"Unfit For Human Consumption"
"Zochrot"
"Livestock Marketplace"

Whoops! Don't wanna jinx it. Hehe. Yeah, if all goes well, this means it's more or less a return to form.

If the song titles are any indication, we may yet have a proper Carcass album in our grubby mitts this year. I can't believe it's been since '96.

Ordinarily I would be worried about an amazing band coming out of retirement but I have no reservations about this, like somehow I 'know' that they got it right...

Only a fully trained metal Jedi will conquer Carcass…and their new album.

Jeff Walker said: "I think it sounds almost like the missing link between the third and forth albums but with some groove in there."

If that's an honest assessment, it genuinely can't fail. I don't think the band members would sound as proud as they do if it were anything less. They're all very critical of the previous albums, even their best work.

At the Gates recently hinted at doing the same thing (after saying they wouldn't for a long time).

I would much rather see a new At the Gates album, but Carcass is a close 2nd :)

Can't wait!
