Carcass Debut Music Video for “The Scythe’s Remorseless Swing”
After a year of pandemic delays, English extreme metal legends Carcass have finally released their grotesque masterpiece and one of 2021’s most anticipated albums, Torn Arteries. MetalSucks’ own Jeff Treppel writes that the record “really has it all: insanely complex riffs, growl-along choruses, wryly funny lyrics, and even a nine minute song that doesn’t feel it.”
In celebration of the release, Carcass have debuted a new music video for their latest gory single, “The Scythe’s Remorseless Swing.” Watch the Chris Marley-directed clip below.
Earlier this week, vocalist/bassist Jeff Walker said that Carcass “kind of are responsible” for the rise of nu-metal:
“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… “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.”
