Extreme metal legends Carcass have announced that they have inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records for the release of their comeback record ‘Surgical Steel’.
The band had this to say of the deal: ‘We are pleased to announce that we have found the perfect home for Surgical Steel, the first CARCASS album for, what, eighteen years?! We’ve inked a deal with Nuclear Blast for our new baby.
We have to thank Markus Staiger for his enthusiasm and belief in what he heard, but mostly his ability to take advantage of Jeff with a bad hangover when he visited the office in Stuttgart to let him be the first to hear the rough mixes. Nuclear Blast has managed to secure this release despite interest from all the main players in what remains of the metal ‘music industry’.
We’re also looking forward to working with our pals in the US Office, who have done favors for us behind the scenes over the last few years. On a personal note, Jeff looks forward to his and label manager Gerardo Martinez’ friendship to come crashing down in flames and tears in a few months.
As long as we don’t mention ‘The War’ we think we’re going to do just fine with our new Teutonic home!’
‘Surgical Steel’ will be released later this year.
