CARCASS - Discuss "Torn Arteries" Artwork In New Album Trailer!
English extreme metal legends CARCASS have released a new album trailer today, in which they discuss Zbigniew Bielak's striking and grotesque rotting veggie-heart artwork for their massively anticipated album, "Torn Arteries," that's out September 17th from Nuclear Blast Records.
Vocalist/bassist Jeff Walker comments on the artwork:
“It’s very clean, white, which we’ve never done before. It doesn’t look evil, or typically death metal, but I like how clean it is; almost like a coffee table book.”

Ferocious and uncompromising in their execution, CARCASS’s ability to intricately dissect the innards of death metal, and display them for us to sonically understand has been their point of excellence for over three decades. In 2019 the band released their first single in over 5 years “Under The Scalpel Blade,” followed by a 4 song EP entitled "Despicable" (October 2020), setting a potent precedent for the full length album coming in September: "Torn Arteries." With the album title itself referencing an old demo created by original drummer Ken Owen back in the 80’s, "Torn Arteries" sits as a bookend on the modern side of the CARCASS discography, connecting directly back to where everything began over 30 years ago.
