According to Bravewords.com, New Sick Drummer live footage of CARCASS drummer Daniel Wilding performing the band’s new single, ‘Captive Bolt Pistol’ on September 23rd at their sold-out Reggies show in Chicago, IL.
Carcass have stormed the German media control charts with their new masterpiece, Surgical Steel. The album hit the charts at # 10 in it’s first week.
More global Surgical Steel first-week chart positions include:
Sweden: #42 (Sweden Rock/Metal #4)
UK: #47 (UK Indie #13, UK Rock #4)
Ireland: #84 (Ireland Indie: #15)
Belgium: #117 (Flanders #130, Walloonia #87)
The band states: “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!”
