I had a hunch they’d signed a deal with Century Media, but it turns out my second guess was more accurate.
Carcass have indeed inked a deal with Nuclear Blast for their comeback LP Surgical Steel.
Due in stores this fall, the CD was mixed by Andy Sneap after the project’s producer, Colin Richardson, quit the project two weeks into the mixing process to work on the new Trivium record.
Surgical Steel is Carcass’ first studio LP since 1996′s Swansong.
Calling the label “the perfect home” for their new LP, Carcass further thanked “Markus Staiger for his enthusiasm and belief in what he heard, but mostly his ability to take advantage of Jeff with a bad hangover when he visited the office in Donzdorf to let him be the first to hear the rough mixes.
“Nuclear Blast has managed to secure this release despite interest from all the main players in what remains of the metal ‘music industry.’ We’re also looking forward to working with our pals in the U.S. office, who have done favors for us behind the scenes over the last few years.”
