MetalBite Review by Tomek on 12/12/2012
Corrosive Carcass was formed in 2004, but ďComposition Of FleshĒ is their debut album. There was a demo in between, but it took 8 long years to release their first album and even though the sound is something that Dismember or Nihilist introduced, there is much more on this album than a copy of old school Death Metal from Sweden. Corrosive Carcass manages to take all the best elements from the old school elite, add their own twist into it, mix and mash the tempos and then puke the essence onto the world.

It donít seem to me that those guys set out to be most original, but when Dismember is no more, when Entombed releases are in demand and when old school Death Metal is a must, Corrosive Carcass is there to put out some exquisite headbanging tunes. With over 40 minutes of music, there is something for everyone in here and for everyone, meaning people with a serious need for Swedish Death Metal. Guitars sound dirty and gritty - bringing the best of the best out there to mind, drumming that compliments the guitars and deliciously rumbling bass is set to perfect level and attacks with just the right headbanging speed; and last but not least is the guttural growl-insane screams-sickening shriek vocals that shred all the nerve endings. Sounds like something you were looking for? It definitely made my day, let me tell you that. Lyrics on ďComposition Of FleshĒ are very much something expected on that type of release and so is the artwork which to me is a kick-ass, mind-blowing sickness. Cover was created by Remember The Fallen Artworks and there isnít any other info about where to check what else they got so youíre on your own. I know those guys put that design on a t-shirt and a long sleeve and I would do same because it doesnít get better than that. Check it out and tell me Iím right!

Donít know what caused the 8 year delay but Iíll be on the lookout for their next release. There are few bands out there that play this old school shit and I love every single one of them. Corrosive Carcass joins the list of my favorite releases this year and let me tell you this: if you havenít heard that one yet, you are missing on some olí good Death Metal! Now letís see if I can get me a new shirt.
