There are some surprisingly melodic solos sprinkled here and there, too. Those are much more intelligible due to the fact that the production tends to distort the low frequencies rather than the high ones.
The music is obviously amateurish; the members were in their late teens when they recorded this album.
Rather than being a disadvantage, their lack of professionalism just adds to the significance of the recording.
They unknowingly created a brand new sonic landscape within extreme metal. If you were to force me to review Reek of Putrefaction about 10 years ago, I'd have told you it was unmitigated shit and the retards who think this is the best thing Carcass ever put out need to book an ear cleaning session with Indian doctors.
Even by grindcore standards, this production is damn near close to unlistenable. Yet somehow, now I can tolerate it. I don't know if it's that I've just been listening to all sorts of "underground" sounds these past decades and I'm more used to it, but I can tolerate it.
I mean it's still quaint compared to Symphonies of Sickness, the almighty Necroticism, or even Heartwork in terms of entertainment value, but I've been reappraising it lately and wouldn't you know it, it's not a chore to get through.
There's even a few solid, well-developed death metal tracks, like Suppuration, Burnt To A Crisp, Oxidised Razor Masticator and live staple Rotten To The Gore buried under the verrucose urethras and carbonized eyesockets.
Plus Genital Grinder has a very memorable riff well what you can make of it anyway that perfectly sets the tone for the commercial freight cargo shipper full of gore you are about to be soaked with.
As an artistic statement, I will say that Reek of Putrefaction does work well, being an uncomfortable assault on the senses; wave after wave of aural images of the human body that no human eye or ear was ever meant to experience as a protest of meat.
The fact that there are two separate lead vocalists here with their own distinct sounds is also a very nice touch, one that was sadly left unexploited by death metal not to mention by Carcass themselves, as Steer slowly phased himself out of the band as a vocalist.
Unfortunately, Reek has a flaw that renders the whole thing sterile, unintelligible vocals: a problem that not even Scott Burns, Erik Rutan or Colin Richardson could cure at the best of times.
There's a reason Eminem was public enemy number 1 in America once upon a time: because people could actually understand him when he was rhyming about killing his wife, and most importantly they didn't need a lyric sheet to confirm it.
Unless you actually have the lyrics handy, you aren't going to be able to figure out whether Excreted Alive is some commentary on the circle of life or a weekend bender with Divine and Clifford The Big Red Dog.
Grindcore is a strange, strange subset of metal, certainly not for everyone. If you're looking to get into Carcass, I personally wouldn't make this my first buy go for Necroticism, or even Symphonies first.
If you're looking to get into grindcore, I personally wouldn't make this my first buy World Downfall, Horrified, From Enslavement To Obliteration.
But it is worth taking a shot, albeit I'd recommend chasing that shot with Reign in Blood for the sake of bringing your ears back to a normal semblance of reality.
Ah yes, Carcass. I haven't acknowledged the fact that I am a fan of these guys yet. Primarily my favorite genres are black metal, death metal and thrash metal, But I also have a thing for grind if it is done right.
The Reek of Putrefaction is often cited as the very first "Goregrind" release and praised as legendary. Carcass brought the elements of the noisy, gore filled grindcore and created what is now known as goregrind.
Let's face it, no debut is absolutely perfect because they will always have some minor flaws that some people don't like about the album.
The album has a very small amount of noticeable flaws within it's sound. Reek of Putrefaction is a brilliant album, especially for being released in ' It does have a few flaws with production, although it's mostly just due to it being an older album.
I personally don't think the production is bad, but I am putting it down as one of it's flaws just because some people don't like the production.
I like raw and noisy production but that's just me. Another very small flaw it has is that the songs can be a bit repetitive and that could be annoying to some people, especially people new to the band and new to grind.
Despite what minuscule flaws the album may have, it is still a masterpiece. Aside from the basics of this album such as genre, sound and place in metal history, this album was very controversially and critically acclaimed at the time of it's release in This album paved the way for the goregrind bands today whether they be good, mediocre or just flat out horrible, you can't have the children without the father AKA Carcass.
Unlike their later material, which is Thrashy-Melodic Death N' Roll this album and their second album are both extremely dominant in the grindcore category.
The term goregrind came from this album due to the graphic nature of the album and the gore-inspired lyricism, the vocals were also dirty, gurgly, aggressive and sick which was relatively new in the grindcore scene, which was why it was very innovative and unique at the time of it's first release.
I like to describe this album as "Pleasurable Leprosy", your ears are being blasted with this lovely atrocity of gore and raw aggression that it feels like you are rotting from the inside out and feeling immense, maybe even orgasmic pleasure while it is taking place.
The album has a certain atmosphere to it that makes you feel sick, but like trying a powerful and addictive drug you always want more of it.
At the time, there were only 3 members in the band : Bill, Jeff and Ken. They all did vocals as well as played their other roles in the band, which is very impressive considering when this was first released.
Aside from it being grimy, gross and grindy it also has a sort of punk vibe to it, tracing back to their days of d-beat hardcore as Disattack, the riffs remind me of Discharge and their debut album because of the dirty sound and aggression that is displayed.
In finalization of the review, I would like to thank anyone who has the time to read my reviews because let's face it, I tend to rant and ramble on about certain things, but I still get the review done right and it's usually readable.
I would highly recommend this album, it is brilliantly produced and sickeningly beautiful. The album is very raw, unrelenting and dissonant which is how grind is supposed to sound, like a diamond vomited out of an eviscerated cows asshole, this album is a goresoaked masterpiece containing roughly 40 minutes of delicious sickness and gore filled ear lust.
Thank you for reading, and be sure to stay updated with my reviews. Until next time, have a nice day and stay metal!
Carcass are a band which certainly need no introduction, a band which upped the ante in the realms of the extreme metal world and quickly made a name for themselves thanks to John Peel in the death metal scene.
This is their debut taking a theme of gore seasoned with medical jargon taken from medical dictionaries.
Song names such as "Microwaved Uterogestation", "Carbonized Eyesockets" and "Vomited Anal Tract" and the lyrics would make the likes of Ed Gein's stomach turn.
I have personally never been a fan of these kinds of lyrics and vocals as long as they fit, I don't care , and never will be but I mostly judge music by the instrumentation anyway, the Carcass guys certainly know what to do in this theme and they are bloody good at it.
The album opens up with a masterpiece of an instrumental "Genital Grinder" with a dark, atmospheric beginning and one heck of a bloody good riff which then dives into "Regurgitation of Giblets" a very strong opening but there's one thing dragging this down from the let go and that is the production.
Never have I heard of such piss poor production in my life, it sounds like it has been submerged in mud and thus affects the whole album. At many different points in the album some instruments are more punctuated above others examples include "Maggot Colony" where the snare seems to appear in random places thus giving the appearance of bad timing, the timing issue appears on other songs too for instance the intro to "Burnt to a Crisp" I can't think what but something doesn't seem quite right to me in that.
The solos are very bad in places, too it's very noticeable on the likes of "Vomited Anal Tract" which is nothing but a high pitched squeal which would make you want to book an appointment with Mr.
The solo in Pungent Excruciation also appears to drown out the other instruments. The bass is highly inaudible with the exception of the intro to "Malignant Defecation" and "Oxidized Razor Masticator" which are both some of my favourites.
The riffs are pretty good overall I feel that they had some great creativity on this album but much of it appears to be indecipherable and jumpy at times "Fermenting Innards" is an example.
I especially liked the riff in "Oxidized Razor Masticator" which I am certain was modified slightly for use on the Necroticism album might have been Incarnated Solvent Abuse or Corporal Jigsore Quandary or just my imagination from which I can decipher of it.
The riff in "Burnt to a Crisp" is another catchy, upbeat, head bang worthy mention that comes to mind although the solo yet again, sounds muffled.
I also enjoyed the riff in "Fermenting Innards", despite starting off poorly. In places they slow down adding a very nice variation and break from the fast parts.
The middle part of the album was a bit of a chore to get through in places well, in quite a lot of parts and I do feel that the production really dampens the overall enjoyment and really does drain the overall creativity and composition in a vast majority of it which is a real shame.
All I can say is, this really needs a remaster I do believe that they have remastered this so I may track that down. This is certainly an album which has potential but as I have got older I start to really notice the poor production more and the changes of master volume changes amongst other little things.
Favourite songs: "Genital Grinder", "Oxidized Razor Masticator", "Burnt to a Crisp", "Maggot Colony" the latter two: despite some parts sounding iffy, they are good and "Malignant Defecation".
Carcass's debut Reek of Putrefaction was pretty ahead of its time and an extremely important album for grind music.
With that being said, influential doesn't always equal amazing and although I do find myself listening to this album from time to time it's undeniably flawed.
It's evident that these guys knew how to write good songs but the actual execution was done rather poorly, it just sounds like a wall of chaos.
As for the guitar, I'm sure whatever Bill was playing was good but it's nearly impossible to make it out most of the time, there's a few riffs you'll be able to make out, "Burnt to a Crisp" for example.
The tone of the guitar is so muddy and I blame that on the production which gives not just the instruments a muddy sound, the entire atmosphere of the album a very damp and muddy.
Oddly enough you can actually hear the bass a slight bit but only with headphones, believe it or not. Jeff's vocals at times will be very low and nearly inaudible and at others time he's perfectly audible which I'm sure is due to the production or the mixing as well.
I don't want to be that guy to say "it sounds like a wall of noise!!! This is what shocks me because despite all of this, I still enjoy listening to it from time to time.
As I said, you can tell these guys knew how to write good songs but a large amount of the songs have very similar parts and don't really catch your attention.
But there's still quite a few standout tracks; "Burnt to a Crisp", "Oxidised Razor Masticator", "Pungent Excruciation", "Regurgitation of Giblets" amongst others there's 22 songs on the album but these are the ones that first come to mind.
The songs really start to blend in together and sound similar mainly due to almost or every? They are nice at first but then I begin to think half way through the album, sometimes not even half "Really?
If there wasn't a chunk of good, enjoyable tracks on this the album would be straight up awful but fortunately, there's good tracks.
That's about all that needs to be said. As previously stated, despite all of the flaws it's oddly a good listen but I wouldn't recommend listening to this too often.
If you've never listened to Carcass, well first of all what's wrong with you? But seriously, depending on your taste either this raw death-ish goregrind or Swansong death n' roll are the last albums to listen to.
Count me among those few people who actually think that Carcass's debut album "Reek of Putrefaction" is better than most of their later full-length recordings.
In spite of the muddy production which makes some of the vocals sound like mud-monster mutterings, the music has a flowing energy and electrical vitality about it.
Even that doesn't last very long before we're into the next track, an equally messy traffic jam of a song in which guitar and drums fight for the title of Most Juddery Twitchy Instrument and vocalists Jeff Walker and Bill Steer trade slurpy-slurp slimeball utterances.
The album more or less continues in this way and all the songs - there are 20 of them, trying counting 'em! Lyrics are as lurid and laughably sick as can be, limited only by the band members' imaginations and the range of comics and medical texts and dictionaries they'd seen at the time.
For all that, the instrumentals are energetic and several tracks boast very catchy and dance-worthy groove rhythms - you can hardly stop yourself from bouncing up and down in time to the beat.
I really like the squealy high-pitched lead guitar flashes that are of "blink and you'll miss 'em" duration, the way they suddenly stutter and multiply like bacteria in a frenzy, and the sloppy, all-over-the-house drumming which give the recording a manic and deranged air which suits the over-the-top lyrics.
On this album, Steer and Walker share equal vocal duties: Walker's voice has a vicious relish suggesting the bass player might just be harbouring psycho-killer tendencies - he certainly delights in wallowing in all the gore his lyrics muster - while Steer has a deeper swamp-monster vocal in which it's hard to detect what he's thinking or feeling.
Amazingly after the halfway point there's no let-up or relaxation in the pace and general delivery: if anything, the vocals get more vicious and deranged and in some tracks the lead guitar is even more stuttery and some real melodies, very electric and jerky if tinny in sound, sputter out through Steer's fingers.
Some recognisable songs appear with repeating riffs and definite groove rhythms near the end, though the drumming is limited in range and is a bit floppy in sound.
The final track starts with a gritty and skin-abrading rhythm and continues for some time with rather bland percussion before perishing in a bonfire of fiery lead guitar licks and splutters.
For all the muddy blur which can blunt some of the band's raw style, the trio is very tight and play almost intuitively, as if the guys can read one another's thoughts - their sudden lurches into rapid-fire machine-gun blastbeats and back into a more relaxed mode, repeatedly in the one song, can leave you slack-jawed if you aren't already at the sheer heavy brutality of the music and the blood-spattered lyrics.
There are so many riffs and blastbeats in most tracks that they tend to pass in a blur and they take some effort and several repeat hearings to register in the brain cells but what comes across overall is the sheer energy in the musicians' playing.
The music appears very improvised and perhaps most of it was done on the spot during the album's recording. The energy and vitality may not be channelled very well and a lot gets wasted in Steer's solo outings.
I almost swear, there is something inhuman in the music, filled with an electric life-force, just Carcass has a pretty genre defining career. They were one of the first grindcore bands, THE first goregrind band, and one of the founders of melodic death metal.
Well of their genre defining releases, this one falls under the grindcore. The songs differ from their second album in many ways.
The songs differ from other grindcore bands like Napalm Death because while they still use a lot of blast beats, they also use slower parts to change it up every now and then.
Napalm Death was pretty much fast all the time with some exceptions but Carcass never seemed to go full speed all the time. The vocals on this album are a much rawer form of the trio of Jeff Walker, Bill Steer, and Ken Owen.
Bill sounds pretty much the same as he usually does. He also seems to sing more on this release, it kind of seems like he is the lead vocalist on this album where Jeff seems to take over lead on later albums.
He still has his vomit-ish noises he does so well but they are much more random on this album. The production is just awful.
The album is presented in a panel digipak with full lyrics and artwork and is sealed in a white medical bag with sticker, to hide the controversial cover art.
