CARCASS DEBUTS ANIMATED VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘DANCE OF IXTAB (PSYCHOPOMP & CIRCUMSTANCE MARCH NO. 1 IN B)’
TORN ARTERIES ALBUM OUT SEPTEMBER 17TH
British extreme metal legends CARCASS has released an animated video created by Costin Chioreanu (OpethNapalm Death) for a new single, ‘Dance of Ixtab (Psychopomp & Circumstance March No. 1 In B)’, from their massively anticipated 7th studio album, Torn Arteries, out on September 17th via Nuclear Blast Records

CARCASS’ founding vocalist/bassist Jeff Walker describes the track,

“The song is a foot-stomping festival anthem that will go unheard in an empty, vacuous, post covid world “stadium”, where used Lateral Flow Tests blow around as litter in the breeze.”

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 in 2020 titled Despicablesetting a potent precedent for the full-length album coming in September. With the album title referencing an old demo created by original drummer Ken Owen back in the ’80s, 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 and Symphonies of Sickness. Artist Zbigniew Bielak travelled 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.’

Torn Arteries is available for pre-order in a variety of bundles and formats.
