The Hard Card

Guitar gods CARCASS have already topped charts both here and abroad with "HEARTWORK," their new album, "their best to date, and one of the best (and most innovative) metal records you'll hear this year" (Guitar World). Rolling Stone lavished 3 1/2 stars on the album, declaring: "Just as once-platinum pop-metal groups were forced to stand by slack-jawed as Nirvana went quadzillion platinum, more traditional metal bands have much to fear from the kinder, gentler sound of death. Megadeth should be particularly scared of Carcass, [who] understand the appeal of grandiose power." Rants the Village Voice, "'HEARTWORK' is actually a lot of fun to listen to, up until your brain implodes six, perhaps seven, songs into the set." Get used to the name "Carcass" - it's gonna be everywhere you look this summer.
