Back in May, the reformed Carcass announced plans to release its new album Surgical Steel via new label home Nuclear Blast. And this weekend, our first taste of material from the extreme metal legends first album in seven years has made its way online.
As Carcass confirmed via Facebook, the song titled “Captive Bolt Pistol” appeared in a song sampler included with the latest issue of Germany’s Legacy Magazine. Unsurprisingly, one particular fan decided to upload it to YouTube. With that in mind, we’d recommend you take a listen to the song above before it gets taken down (though it will likely be released online officially very soon). In short, though, the over three minute song sounds like classic brutal Carcass.
UPDATE: While we thank Skulls N Bones for reposting the song shortly after it was initially taken down, Nuclear Blast has now released an official stream of the song “Captive Bolt Pistol.” Check it out in the video above.
