CARCASS - Take Fans Inside "Kelly's Meat Emporium" With New Album Trailer!


English extreme metal legends CARCASS have released a new album trailer in which they discuss the origins of their new single "Kelly's Meat Emporium." The song is featured on the band's impending 7th studio album, "Torn Arteries," that's out September 17th with Nuclear Blast Records. Watch at the link below to see how one of the year's most devastating songs came together.


"Torn Arteries" is available for pre-order in a variety of bundles and formats, including CD, Box Set and limited edition vinyl pressings. Pre-order here: http://www.nuclearblast.com/carcass-tornarteries


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.


The album artwork also rings reminiscent of the grotesque photography that appears on classic CARCASS album covers like "Reek Of Putrefaction" of "Symphonies of Sickness." Artist Zbigniew Bielak traveled outside his normal wheelhouse to bring forth a time lapsed set of photos showing vegetables shaped like a heart, rotting over time upon a white plate. This form of artwork was influenced by Japanese Kusôzu, meaning: ‘painting of the nine stages of a decaying corpse.’
