CARCASS
CARCASS
Wake Up And Smell The Carcass
(Earache Records)
75:52min

If you're a die hard CARCASS fan and you've bought everything by these guys in the past already, there's absolutely no need for you to consider a purchase of this re-release as it features previously already available material exclusively. The only difference between the original "Wake Up And Smell The Carcass" release and this new edition is that it now combines both (the audio and video) formats. As you may (or may not) know, "Wake Up And Smell The Carcass" originally got released as a VHS video in 1996 (the DVD version followed in 2001), while the audio part comes up with 17 rare CARCASS recordings, that you won't find anywhere else (like the unreleased tracks from "Swansong" album or 1994's BBC Radio 1 Rock Show session), while others simply have become pretty difficult to track down in the meantime (the exclusive songs from the "Heartwork" and "Tools Of The Trade" EPs and the band's contribution to 1989's "Pathological" and "Grindcrusher" compilations). The video features the five CARCASS promotional clips for 'Corporal Jigsore Quandary', 'Heartwork', 'Keep On Rotting In The Free World', 'Incarnated Solvent Abuse' and 'No Love Lost' as well as two classic live shows from the London Astoria (March 18, 1992 - 10 tracks) and Nottingham Rock City (November 14, 1989 - 7 tracks). As the original "Wake Up And Smell The Carcass" CD release already dates back to 1996 now, it already might be pretty hard to find as well nowadays, so that this re-issue certainly makes sense. The booklet wasn't changed at all, but an additional slipcase was added to the whole release now. An essential collection of CARCASS material for fans of the band that don't own the originals already! www.myspace.com/carcass, www.earache.com
