The most brilliant Carcass release IMHO. All aspects of this album are bang on - Insane riffs and hooks throughout, wicked pounding drums, and vocals that will make your stomach churn. Absolutely no weak songs in the bunch. I've always said that if I had to take one album on a desserted island with me, it would be this one. It's one of those albums that gets better with each listen!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is history of extreme metal. Grindcore on its full potential here. How to describe this? First of all the lyrics are something od pure poetry. Think about the darkest Poe or the weird ending of some Lovecraft short novels. There are a lot of nearly out-of-use words that put these lyrics under some serious language consideration. Apart from this, the stories are wicked, seriously... they do not deal with the religious themes, as many metal bands, but with the material issue of human life.
Just forget useless rants about the Antichrist. The pervious releases of these fine UK guys where something out of my comprehension (pure noise). But this Necroticism thing is one of the highest points reached by extreme metal artists, both for instrumental execution and voice duets (an hysteric high-pitched plus a gurgling low one).

Some people don't realise that Carcass was started as a vegan hardcore band. This release sees more of their vegan politics, where they are putting the humans in the positions that animals are put in: for example the song "Pedigree Butchery" where humans are cut up for pet food, or "Incarnate Solvent Abuse" where instead of horses being made into glue, it is human corpses being made into glue (for solvent abuse).
