Carcass vs. Exhumed – Death Match
A hearty congratulations is in order for Chimaira, who after defeating DevilDriver, scooped up their fourth consecutive Death Match win. The band's new single 'No Mercy' has been declared immortal in our Death Match Hall of Fame and the song will be added to Loudwire Metal Radio on heavy rotation. You know what this means! We've got two fresh tracks dueling in this week's match.
Extreme metal pioneers Carcass will soon release their first studio album in 17 years. 'Surgical Steel' will hit shelves Sept. 13 and the massively-anticipated record has been led by the single 'Captive Bolt Pistol.' It's heavy, it's brutal and it's 100-percent Carcass.
Stepping up to Carcass is Californian death metal / goregrind act Exhumed. Heavily influenced by Carcass, the men of Exhumed enter the Death Match with 'Coins Upon the Eyes.' Exhumed have released an official music video for the track, but the disturbing clip is way too gore-ridden to be safe for work. Exhumed's newest album, 'Necrocracy,' is set for an Aug. 2 release.
