After a mediocre August, there were a ton of great metal releases in September. There were a few outstanding releases that aren’t on our top five list because the competition was so stiff. Topping the list is a comeback album from a legendary group. With the departure of a couple members and the amount of time that passed since their last album, there were some concerns on what Carcass’ new album might bring. Those concerns were unfounded, as they delivered a spectacular release. Check out our list of the best metal albums released in September.

Tarja Virmakari of Metal Shock Finland and TrueMetal.it recently conducted an interview with bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker of reactivated British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

Asked about his views on illegal music downloading, Walker said: “It can be a positive thing, if people download an album, hear it, enjoy it and buy it. The danger is that there is a hard core of people who download and never buy anything, and that’s damaging to the music scene. They’re not supporting anybody, they’re not supporting the artists as fans. But for the most part, I think it’s positive. Because I understand fully why people do it. There’s so much music out there; people don’t have the money or the resources to buy everything. And also people have probably spent or wasted money in the past on albums that have disappointed them. So it gives people a chance to test something before they buy it. I personally don’t think it’s any different to hearing music on the radio. But, like I say, it’s that hard core of people, who… their attitude is very nihilistic and it’s out of step with the idea of what being a fan is about. You shouldn’t be trying to damage the artist who’s trying to being people pleasure. We’re not at war with the audience.”

CARCASS‘ new album, “Surgical Steel”, sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart.

In a recent interview with Chile’s Radio Futuro, Walker stated about the new CARCASS CD: “We think we’ve made a good album, so it’s gonna be very interesting when people get to hear the record. We can’t wait to see what people think.”

He continued: “It sounds like CARCASS. Even the drumming sounds like CARCASS. Everything about it… I think it’s gonna shock people, how good it is. I think it’s got all the elements that people like, yet it still sounds fresh. So that’s all I can say, really, ’cause we don’t really sound like any other band, and the fact that after 17 years, we wrote music and it still sounds like CARCASS, I think it’s good.”

Regarding the direction of the new CARCASS album, Walker previously stated: “We’ve taken stylistic cues from all the albums because it’s in our blood, but it’s no rehash or mess of ideas. I think it sounds almost like the missing link between the third and forth albums but with some groove in there. I’ve jokingly christened some parts ‘trad blast’ and some ‘death sleaze’… don’t think for a minute this is just some nostalgic throwback album — we’re setting up another 17 years of ideas for other bands to copy and clean up on. [laughs]”

“Surgical Steel”, the new album from reactivated British extreme metal pioneers CARCASS, sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 41 on The Billboard 200 chart.

“Surgical Steel” has registered the following first-week chart positions so far:

Finland: #6
Germany: #10
Austria: #24
USA: #41
Sweden: #42
UK: #47
Australia: #59
Netherlands: #73
France: #80
Ireland: #84
Belgium: #117 (Flanders #130, Wallonia #87)

Commented the band: “Wow! Well, we had every faith in the fact that we’ve recorded a very strong album and we had every faith in our label, Nuclear Blast, that they would work their asses off — but this is AMAZING news!!! This even more impressive when you consider that our album ‘leaked’ a month before the release date AND that we didn’t target the charts in the summer when it was ‘soft’ and easier to chart high.

CARCASS was up against some strong mainstream releases this past week!

“Thanks to all the listeners who bought the album — it goes to prove to all the cynics out there wrong — people DO still buy albums, especially metalheads!

“If you bought the album, you should be proud of yourselves!

“Again, thanks from us!”
