CARCASS: 'Reek Of Putrefaction' Reissued As Limited-Edition DualDisc

September 26, 2008

"Reek Of Putrefaction", the seminal gory debut album from British grindcore/death metal legends CARCASS, has been reissued and is available again in Europe. The band's genre-defining 1988 debut album shocked the metal world upon its original release, from its controversial cover art to the sickening lyrics. Available once again after many years out of print, "Reek Of Putrefaction" is the fourth of the five CARCASS albums to be reissued and is out now as a limited-edition DualDisc (combined CD and DVD) housed in a deluxe digipak with extra artwork. It includes 13 unreleased bonus tracks from the "Flesh Ripping Sonic Torment" demo, along with part 1 of a mini-documentary series entitled "The Pathologist's Report" as bonus video material, all specially packaged in a white medical bag which conceals the shocking original cover art.

The documentary consists of interviews, filmed in London and Liverpool at the end of 2007, featuring the members of CARCASS exploring their humble beginnings and lifting the lid on the controversy that brought the band to a wider audience.

This classic slice of grindcore history, "Reek Of Putrefaction" is available now in Europe from all good music retailers, or from the Earache European webstore at this location.
