Återförenade brittiska metallegenderna Carcass har skrivit ett kontrakt med Nuclear Blast Records som släpper bandets nya album Surgical Steel under hösten. Albumet är producerat av Colin Richardson (Fear FactoryMachine HeadNapalm DeathSlipknotBullet For My Valentine).

Carcass har släppt följande uttalande angående sitt nyfunna partnerskap:
”We are pleased to announce that we have found the perfect home for Surgical Steel, the first Carcass album for, what, seventeen years?!

”We’ve inked a deal with Nuclear Blast for our new baby. We have to thank Markus Staiger for his enthusiasm and belief in what he heard, but mostly his ability to take advantage of Jeff with a bad hangover when he visited the office in Donzdorf to let him be the first to hear the rough mixes.

Nuclear Blast has managed to secure this release despite interest from all the main players in what remains of the metal ’music industry.’ We’re also looking forward to working with our pals in the U.S. office, who have done favors for us behind the scenes over the last few years.

”On a personal note, Jeff looks forward to his and label manager Gerardo Martinez’ friendship to come crashing down in flames and tears in a few months. As long as we don’t mention ’The War,’ we think we’re going to do just fine with our new Teutonic home!”
