2013 has, and continues to be the year of the recorded resurgence, both Black Sabbath and David Bowie releasing new records after years of inactivity. While both have merits, they ultimately pale into insignificance alongside the return of Liverpudlian Metal legends Carcass.  Perhaps a name unknown too much of the musical wider world, but within extreme circles the forthcoming release a monstrously major event.  To describe “Surgical Steel” as the comeback album of the year would be accurate, but also woeful understatement. In reality, this possibly the best comeback album ever, particularly after a protracted lay off of seventeen years, the aptly and ironically titled “Swansong” the last previous release in 1996.
