Cadaver Release New EP “D.G.A.F.”

Cadaver, the band featuring Anders Odden (Satyricon) and Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth), have digitally released a new EP titled “D.G.A.F.” The effort comes with three songs including the title track, which features Jeff Walker (Carcass), “Deformed Insanity,” and “Disgrace.”

Odden commented:

“In 1989, Cadaver got signed to Necrosis Records owned by Jeff Walker and Bill Steer from Carcass. Cadaver’s debut album, ‘Hallucinating Anxiety’, was released in 1990 as Norway’s first death metal LP. Now, in 2020, Nuclear Blast have embraced the resurrection of Cadaver and release the EP ‘D.G.A.F.’ with a tip of the hat to the legacy of Carcass. Jeff Walker even join us in the chorus this time around. We are super stoked to release this beast during this very special time. Get your mind off the craziness and enjoy old school death metal.”

Verbeuren added:

“As a legendary band once said, extreme conditions demand extreme responses. We were going to release a three-song EP sometime after our new album came out, but then a global pandemic happened. While the full-length will arrive at a later date, here’s ‘D.G.A.F.’ in all its brutal glory and on Nuclear Blast, which we couldn’t be more stoked about. Consider these misanthropic death metal hymns our soundtrack to the end of days.”

Carcass Delay New Album Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

Carcass’ new album, “Torn Arteries,” has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“Well there’s no way our new album is gonna get released in August now, what with the ongoing pandemic, CD & vinyl manufacturers have closed and label distribution has been put on hold for the foreseeable future. There’s more pressing things to be concerned with right now, correct? Bunker down, look after yourselves, let’s see the next few months through and we’ll get the album released as soon as there’s some kind of return to ‘normality’”

Carcass Cancel Australian Tour

Carcass have cancelled their Australian tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. Here’s an official statement:

“Due to the very unfortunate circumstances surrounding the Download Festival cancellation and now the newly enforced government regulations, Soundworks Touring regrets to inform the public that all appearances on the scheduled Carcass Australian tour have been cancelled. This has been an incredibly difficult decision to make, but one we now have no choice in. Ticket purchasers will receive a refund via point of purchase. We urge everyone to please be patient during the refund process. We sincerely apologise for all disappointment and inconvenience caused by these decisions made. We are 100% committed to rescheduling a headlining Carcass tour to a later time frame when world health concerns settle.”

Carcass Reveal Title For New Album

During a recent interview with Heavy, Bill Steer revealed that Carcass’ new album will be called “Torn Arteries.” As previously reported, that record will be released on August 7. Steer had the following to say about the title:

“[Ken Owen] had a fictitious band called TORN ARTERIES and he recorded everything himself in his bedroom — guitar and he’d actually bang on boxes and kind of scream into the mic. And the whole thing was so distorted, it kind of sounded super heavy, even though essentially you were listening to a guy with a Spanish guitar and a couple of boxes. I think Jeff [Walker] appreciates the connection to the past and the fact that it was another Ken Owen classic. So that was his choice, really, and it stuck.”

Carcass are streaming a new song titled “Under The Scalpel Blade.” The track, which was recorded during the band’s new album sessions, was previously released as part of Decibel’s flexi disc series and it is now available in digital outlets as well. Jeff Walker commented:

“It’s always difficult trying to decide what new song to expose people to, especially given an absence of nearly seven years???? With that in mind here’s a slow throw away number we cobbled together, and NO the title was NOT plagiarized from the Disorder album of the same title before you ask!”
