Carcass Premiere “The Scythe’s Remorseless Swing” Music Video

Jeff Walker Thinks Nu-Metal Was A “Disastrous Side Effect” Of Carcass’ Guitar Tuning

During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Jeff Walker said that he believes that Carcass may have led to the creation of nu-metal. According to him, the genre was a “disastrous side effect” of the band’s guitar tuning.

Walker said the following:

“We downtuned to B and we kind of introduced that to the world of metal as far as I’m concerned. There probably was somebody else who tuned to B, but I can’t think of anyone. It had some disastrous side effects, such as nu metal.”

He also added:

“In some respects, we kind of are responsible. They [nu metal’s top-tier bands, including Korn, Limp Bizkit and Slipknot] all worked with [producer] Ross Robinson, and he was a Carcass fan – he stole ‘Symphonies Of Sickness‘ from Tower Records in Los Angeles when it came out. A lot of those bands tuned to B. But they don’t know why they’re doing it half the time.”

As previously reported, Carcass’ new album “Torn Arteries” will be released on September 17.
