CD Reviews

Shivaji Shinde | 07/14/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Oh, no, this doesn't have the beautiful vomitorious collage of the original "Symphonies". Brutal Riffs, Raw Production, Sick Harmonized vocals. Mangled music from the soon to be finesse rockerz while they were still grind/crust "ameteurs.""
They 're starting to sound better...
Pablosa | Buenos Aires, Capital Federal Argentina | 09/07/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This CD continues with the gore and forensic stuff(lyrics and collage cover) like the first album. The only dfferences are that this album sounds a bit better than "Reek..." and instead of 22 songs, you have 10 well-structured songs. You can find classics like "Reek of putrefaction"(the song) and "Exhume to consume". "Symphonies..." it's more tolerable and "listenable" than "Reek..." (the album). This is the second effort of Carcass' legacy. The beginning of what would be later a perfect death-metal machine, like in "Necroticism..." or "Heartwork".

PS: the two bonus tracks are also featured in the "Wake up and smell the Carcass" compilation."
One of the sickest, most extreme albums

"Carcass is one of my favorite bands. They managed to create one of the most sickning, extremely brutal music out there, goregrind. Using doctor terms, extremely sludgy (heavy) grind riffs, constant blast-beats, dual puked vocals makes this more extreme than anything Cannibal Corpse ever did. With this album and Reek of Putrefaction, they spawned a lot other goregrind bands such as: Regurgitate, Exhumed, Pig Destroyer, Impaled, and many of others. So if you are wanting music at its most extreme, purchase Symphonies of Sickness and Reek of Putrefaction."
