CARCASS (ENGLAND)


Certainly to be counted as originators of the gore-Death genre, CARCASS was a Liverpool based extreme Metal band formed in 1986 and masterminded by ex-NAPALM DEATH man Bill Steer and vocalist / bassist JEFF WALKER. The band was first known as Disattack, playing hardcore/punk back in 1985. After releasing their first demo in 1986, their bass player left the band and Jeff Walker joined them after leaving Electro Hippies. By that time, they changed their name to Carcass, Jeff Walker was to enroll, initially as bassist, and Ken Owen took over on drums as the transition to CARCASS was implemented. Steer and Walker's first musical experiences together were learning to play JUDAS PRIEST cover versions as a bedroom band, but this brand of traditional Metal soon gave way to something far more sinister. The group's first set of CARCASS recordings came in 1987 with a thirteen track demo cassette entitled 'Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment'. Lead vocals on this session were provided by Sanjiv, this singer (the band never learned his surname), exited soon afterward. With Walker adopting the vocal role, a further five tracks were released in cassette form in 1988 dubbed 'Symphonies Of Sickness'.
