“Often considered one of grindcore’s founding fathers, Carcass were among the first bands of the extreme metal genre to try a different lyrical approach — one that reflected a fascination with surgical gadgets and peculiar words straight out of a med student’s textbook. Hailing from the same locale that spawned the Fab Four — in case you’ve lived under a rock for the past few decades, Liverpool — Carcass were originally formed in 1985 by singer/guitarist Bill Steer (who would later play with Napalm Death) and drummer Ken Owen. By 1987, singer/bassist Jeff Walker had signed on with the band, resulting in a deal with Earache Records shortly after. The trio then issued a pair of full-lengths that are often considered classics of the grindcore genre, 1988’s Reek of Putrefaction and 1989’s Symphonies of Sickness.” – All Music
