Carcass Doom/Stoner Style
Shawn Branchcomb | Pensacola, Florida USA | 03/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Containing all the members of the final lineup of Carcass minus guitarist Bill Steer, Black Star Rising makes like Lee Dorian of Cathedral did after leaving Napalm Death, and former Carcass guitarists Bill Steer and Michael Ammott has done with Firebird and Spiritual Beggars respectively, and evolves from grindcore shredders to Sabbathy doom/stoner rock crushers with great success. Jeff Walker has adapted his death metal grunt into a more melodic snarl sounding a little like Testament's Chuck Billy. This album rocks hard and will appeal to any fan of raw hard rock and metal: Imagine Carcass's Swansong album mixed with Cathedral and you can understand how this sounds!"
Great Music

"It is good to know that Jeff is still making music after the departure of Carcass, his vocals are just sickening, and the sicker the better. The music tends to keep a shade of Carcass, which is a plus, not as heavy as the before mentioned but it's good to see experimention with this band. Not to criticize this band at all but I wonder if this will be a project for upcoming years or will there be a reunion of Carcass? Anyone out there who might have the inside scoop on what's going on with Carcass can feel free to let myself or the other fans out there know because Carcass are one of the most talented bands to ever evolve from the underground, they surely are missed."
