METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett presents “Unfit For Human Consumption”, the brand new video from reactivated British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS. Check it out below.
CARCASS is one of several bands who will perform at Hammett‘s first annual horror convention, dubbed Kirk Von Hammett’s Fear FestEviL, which will take place February 6-8, 2014 at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, California.

CARCASS‘ new album, “Surgical Steel”, sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released on September 16 in the U.K., September 13 in the rest of Europe and September 17 in North America via Nuclear Blast Records. The effort was produced by Colin Richardson (FEAR FACTORY, MACHINE HEAD, NAPALM DEATH, SLIPKNOT, BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE) and mixed by Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, ACCEPT, EXODUS, ARCH ENEMY).
Joining guitarist Bill Steer and bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker in CARCASS‘ current incarnation are new drummer Dan Wilding (ABORTED, TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED) and guitarist Ben Ash (PIG IRON, DESOLATION, LIQUEFIED SKELETON).
Decibel magazine’s third cross-country domination — set to take place next spring — will feature CARCASS alongside melodeath powerhouse THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, technical death metal heroes GORGUTS and emerging death/thrash squad NOISEM.
The third time’s the harm, as CARCASS — the Liverpool legends responsible for “Surgical Steel”, Decibel‘s number one album of 2013 — embark upon their first sustained domestic tour in five years. The 2014 Decibel Magazine Tour will fester across North America for 21 putrefying dates, once again seamlessly integrating the past, present and future of extreme music.
Ever-acerbic CARCASS frontman Jeff Walker finds it difficult to contain his enthusiasm. “This is possibly the unsexiest Decibel Tour lineup yet,” he quips. “We’re all bringing the ‘girth’ back to the U.S., along with gray hair and sensible footwear. But it’s the music that matters, right? Just close your eyes and think of England. If that fails, think of Tampa.”
There will be a number of VIP premium packages available in each market, providing you with a T-shirt, poster, “Skip the Line” pass and free digital sampler from Nuclear Blast. The price of this package is less than you would spend on a ticket and a tour shirt at the show!
