When this came out 20 yrs ago or so I can remember Metal Forces (now Terrorizer zine) giving this album a 30 out of 100. The reviewer called this garbage, not talent and an embarrasment. Why the zine would have someone review the album who was not a death metal fan is beyond me. Anyway this was a step up from the primitive Reek of Putrefaction album and saw the band still creating some amazing gore/grind w/more death metal influences in the songs. This is my fave Carcass cd, super brutal, but so catchy. Whether it’s exhume to consume, ruptured in purulence-they all rule, even to this day. Great remaster, making the songs sound clearer and heavier, as well as louder!!. Amazing packaging. The demo songs from the album are of poor quality, but a good insight into the development of the songs. Saw them on this tour open for death, carcass ruled, opened w/genital grinder-and then bursted into exhume to consume.
