CARCASS / Heartwork [1993]


Carcass set aside the impossibly long album names that defined them for years and dropped Heartwork on the world in 1993.  That was a special year for me and this album will forever be a part of it.  It’s a lot more melodic sounding than their usual death metal assault of previous works; it’s much slower and the production is vastly improved.  It won them accolades from all sides.  Listen carefully and you’ll hear a lot of Iron Maiden riffs being played in a more extreme and technical sounding style.  Even people who hate death metal liked this album.
