Carcass avoided the anarcho-political viewpoint of UK grindcore scene-mates Napalm Death in favour of humorously reordered terminologies from the world of forensic pathology, a trait which by their second album Symphonies Of Sickness resulted in a fully-blown deathly gore-grind experience edging English metal even closer to its American counterpart. Enhanced by frequently-censored cover collages of human anatomy, corpses and butchery, this album completes first-phase Carcass before they ventured more into progressive song structures, and takes hardcore-spawned English metal to its edge of extremity.
