In case you just awoke from a coma, Carcass are sort of back together.
I have no actual — actual — idea why, because it would seemingly be an awesome project to be part of, but producer Colin Richardson has resigned from mixing the new Carcass album.
In his place, the reactivated British extreme metal legends have enlisted Andy Sneap to mix their comeback album, Surgical Steel.
Colin quit the project two weeks into the mixing process.
This Colombian site claims, Carcass’ Jeff Walker said Richardson’s “quit yesterday. He was two weeks into mixing the album and he decided that he didn’t want to continue.”
Sneap will take over on the mix, Walker explained.
“[Colin’s] produced the album. It’s just that he’s hit a brick wall with the mix and doesn’t want to continue. And so we’re bringing in Andy Sneap to do the mix now. It’s a shame, but we finished recording the album three months ago. There are a lot of reasons for it, but the main reason is that he says he is burnt out. I guess it will be a positive thing to bring in some fresh ears.”
