Legends (not needing any further introduction) Carcass have recorded a live session at BBC’s Maida Vale studios for the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show.


The four song set includes three tracks from last year’s critically acclaimed ‘comeback’ album Surgical Steel, ‘Unfit For Human Consumption’, ‘Cadaver Pouch Conveyor System’ and ‘Captive Bolt Pistol’ as well as ‘Carneous Cacoffiny’ from 1991’s Necroticism.


Posting a picture of a ‘The British Broadcasting Corporation’ sign, the band first joked: “We were busy here yesterday…and NO, before you ask it wasn’t because Ben was helping Police with their enquiries in connection with ‘Operation Yewtree’!”


They later posted the above picture adding: “This should satisfy anyone who thought the album was too “slick”!!! TOTALLY live in the studio.”   


It’s not the first time the previous Zero Tolerance cover stars have been at the BBC. In December 1988 they did a session for the late John Peel (broadcast in January 1989) that also comprised of four tracks: ‘Crepitating Bowel Erosion’, ‘Slash Dementia’, ‘Cadaveric Incubator of Endoparasites’ and ‘Reek of Putrefaction’ and was later released as an EP.


Of course the lineup is different this time with Dan Wilding replacing Ken Owen on drums and the addition of guitarist Ben Ash. There are no details of when it will be airing yet, but it would be expected to be sometime in the coming weeks. Keep checking back for further details.


Carcass will next be performing on metal cruise ship 70,000 Tons Of Metal in late January before Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL, the Metallica guitarist’s horror/music festival in San Francisco in February. After a North American tour alongside The Black Dahlia Murder in March and April they’ll be back in Europe for FortaRock in the Netherlands, Hellfest in France and Graspop in Belgium.
