      Carcass' fifth album (1996).

      This self-conscious final offering from Carcass sounds very little like the Carcass of old, or even their previous radical turnaround on the more commercial 'Heartwork.' While still death metal at its core, and thus not seeking any kind of mainstream chart approval, the style here is much more relaxed and infused with a classic rock/metal style, resulting in a collection of mid-paced "death-'n'-roll" songs that are fun to listen to, but lack the excitement of previous works from the band.

      Guitarist Michael Amott had returned to Sweden by this point to found Arch Enemy with his brother and continue the style he'd worked towards on Carcass' previous two albums, leaving Bill Steer and Carlo Regadas to come up with some distinctly rock-tinged riffs over Ken Owen's steady drums.

      Most of the songs fail to stand out in any real way, outside of the catchiness of opener 'Keep On Rotting in the Free World' and closer 'Go To Hell,' as well as the album's one memorable guitar riff that leads the way in the otherwise average 'Child's Play,' but this is still an interesting experiment that could provide a gateway into death metal for newcomers, as long as they aren't expecting anything particularly gripping.
