British death metal band Carcass released their latest album “Surgical Steel” in 2013. Fans of the band hope to release a new album from Carcass in 2017.

Carcass guitarist Bill Steer talked about the possibility of a new album in an interview with Metal Nation Radio. He said:

We can’t really rush this. We don’t want to waste anyone’s time, including our own by putting out something substandard.

All I would say is there has to be small stylistic elements that haven’t appeared on Carcass records before. We’re going to be walking the tightrope of sounding like the band Carcass and bringing in new elements. There’s nothing valid to say if we’re going to do a retread… what’s the point? That was a very nice summary of our previous records. We updated all of the stylistic parts of those albums without trying. It just happened.”


According to Steer, Carcass wants to release a new studio album in 2017. But instead of doing it hastily, they are saying to do it slowly and sedately.

Bill also spoke about his experiences with touring with Slayer in last year. He said:

It was very strange. Sure, we had done the odd festival where we’d officially played on the same stage, but that’s festival stuff, and it’s a bit random. But this was a situation where we were kind of invited, to some degree, and God, we were just so up for it.

We didn’t really anticipate anything in particular; we were just grateful to be there. But as it turned out, we got treated beautifully by band and crew, and the audiences were very tolerant. In fact, a lot of them seemed to get into what we were doing. So the whole thing was just way beyond anything we could have expected.
