After years of waiting, SYMPHONIES OF SICKNESS, the second album from
British grindcore/death metal legends CARCASS has been reissued and is
now in North America.

SYMPHONIES OF SICKNESS, CARCASS' breakthrough 1989 album cemented the
band's place at the forefront of the emerging grindcore scene, and
continued to
shock the metal world with its gory imagery. Now available again after
years out of print, SYMPHONIES OF SICKNESS is the last of the five
to be reissued and is out now as a limited edition CD/DVD set, housed
in a deluxe digipak with extra artwork and the original gore artwork
inside. It includes 6 previously unreleased bonus tracks, taken from
the SYMPHONIES OF SICKNESS demo, along with part 2 of a mini-
documentary series entitled THE PATHOLOGIST'S REPORT as bonus video

Filmed in London and Liverpool at the end of 2007, the documentary
of interviews with the members of CARCASS - KEN OWEN, BILL STEER, JEFF
WALKER and MICHAEL AMOTT - which, when combined with the other four
albums, makes up a two and a half hour documentary examining all eras
of the
band, from their gore-soaked grind beginnings to the more refined,
moments of their later output.

SYMPHONIES OF SICKNESS is available now in North America from your
