Carcass are an English melodic death metal band from Liverpool. They formed in 1985 and disbanded a decade later. A reunion was enacted in 2008 without one of its original members, drummer Ken Owen.
Although widely regarded as pioneers of the grindcore genre, their early work was also tagged as "splatter death metal", "hardgore" and "goregrind" because of their gruesome album covers and lyrical content.
"Carcass kicks ass."
