Carcass guitarist Bill Steer wants to write another album

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 16th December 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Bill Steer, guitarist for the legendary Carcass, recently stated in an interview that he’d like to write and release another studio album. Bill Steer said in the aforementioned interview with Metalshrine the following:

Yeah. There’s a mutual agreement between us that we’d like to do one. There’s an awareness that if we can get through the next seven months of touring and festivals and still like each other and feel good about this, we definitely want to do a record. There’s loads of lessons we learnt on this one and while I’ve still got it fresh in my head, I want to build on that. It’s fun, but it’s a really challenging thing to do because I haven’t done anything creatively in this genre of music for so long, but it suddenly felt very fresh. I had escaped it because it was too limited in my mind and after a few years of doing other styles of music, I found there were new limitations with that and I wanted to go back and do extreme music again. [laughs] You can never be 100% happy, but right now this is what I like doing. As I said, it’s a challenge and probably more so now than ever, because it’s hard to be innovative in this music. There’s a lot of incredible players out there. Especially the American guys, they’re treating it like a sport and the drummers especially and you have to admire the dedication and tenacity, but I also think this music has to have a little bit of soul and maybe some swing.

In the interview, he also stated that Andy Sneap would definitely be the producer for the next album. The full interview with Metalshrine can be read here.

Carcass announced as Damnation Main Stage headliner

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 14th January 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

England’s extreme metal legends Carcass will return to headline the ninth Damnation Festival for their only UK appearance following the release of their first album in 17 years.

The death and grind standard bearers have promised another historic set which will feature cult classics alongside unexpected old gems and brand new material when they take the stage at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 2nd of this year.

And after helping to sell out Damnation Festival in advance back in 2008, guitarist Bill Steer is looking forward to performing to a packed house on their return to the event. He said: “We’re very excited about the prospect of returning to Damnation Festival this year. Our appearance there in 2008 was a major highlight for us and this time around, people can expect to hear a fairly different Carcass set. The old favourites will be in there, of course, but we’re also planning to play a couple of the less obvious tracks from our past, as well as songs from the album we’ve just completed. Join us!

With 22 more bands to be announced across three stages, festival director Gavin McInally, said fans can look forward to the melting pot of diverse styles of music Damnation Festival is known for from black metal to post-rock. He added: “It was a coup to land the first UK Carcass show in 13 years in 2008 when fans snapped up every ticket going before we made it to the day itself and it’s another coup having the band return following the release of their first new album in 17 years. But even with the mighty Carcass topping the bill, we won’t be satisfied until we’ve pieced together a more challenging and brilliant day of music than the eight successful years we’ve already had the pleasure of hosting, so expect a lot more to come from 2013.

Tickets for Damnation Festival 2013 are on sale now and will be held at last year’s price of £32 for a limited period. So get your bank cards at the ready as tickets will no doubt be selling fast.
