Editorial Reviews

Includes DVD. Heartwork marks Carcass' return after the self-imposed hiatus that followed 1991's Necroticism: Descanting the Insalubrious. It's also the pioneering grindcore outfit's breakthrough release, successfully grafting melody onto the existing muscle of Carcass' punishing antimusic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carcass Best Cd Ever October 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This reissue of "Heartwork" is excellent-Like the previous one "Necrotism".This is a limited edtion.There is a extra cd of demo tracks from the album and the dvd(Which is always interesting).This is Micheal Amott's last album with Carcass.It's the best Carcass cd ever.The Songs are excellent.The Guitars are so razor sharp and so very heavy.When I frist bought the cd-Carcass gone commercial?.When Earache and Columbia merged together.Still Carcass still kept their heavy sound.This cd put rings around Megadeth's "Countdown to Distiction" during that time-Such a feroarious monster.Highly Reccommeded-Get all these digapak Carcass reissues(Inculding "SwanSong").

5.0 out of 5 stars another chance September 19, 2008
By znodog
Format:Audio CD
Come on folks, if you missed out on this the first time around you got another chance to sample the godfathers of grindcore gore. On this outing they were a more mature band than the one on "Symphonies of Sickness" or"Reeks Of Putrefication". The new focus and command of their instruments is obvious on the complexity of the arrangements the way they go from classic colossal riffs to death grind and dirge, with constant melodic lead guitars comin' at you left and right. The vocals are a step up from the past, but thats not saying much if your familiar with the raspy and harsh growls they spit out.This is for the more tech death metal fans.Not as grinding as earlier releases. A big influence on the melodic death bands we hear today. Featuring the talents of Bill Steer and Michael Amott together on lead guitars.Nothing special about the dvd, kind of goes right by, lotsa killer music to listen to...

5.0 out of 5 stars You just can't beat classic melodic death metal September 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is a milestone for its time. The recording and mixing done for the album is absolutely spectacular considering how a lot of other underground death metal bands sounded at the time. This thing sounds like it was recorded recently, that's how good it is.

The album itself is a masterpiece. There's a reason why many metalheads consider this an absolute must-have album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Re-Master!! March 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When Heartwork came out alot of death/grind fans panned the album, which I thought was wrong, the album had a cleaner sound, but no less heavier sound. The band was getting more popular and because they incorporated some slower parts the album really was not commercial by any stretch of the imagination. Songs like carnal forge, This Mortal Coil the awesome title track or the best song on the album Arbeit Macht Fleisch grinded pretty hard, just had more melody. The riffs were simply killer and still are. I can remember Headbanger's ball playing the Heartwork video each week along w/Morbid Angel's rapture video-good times. Anyway again Earache has released a monster remaster and the sound packs so much more heaviness and loudness than the original. Lyrics reprinted on the multi fold out digipack and the dvd has the 4th part documentary. Extra disc includes demos of the album, nothing too special in that dept. Anyway Heartowrk was the album that platooned the band even further and was the last great record for the band. Unfortunatley the band tarnished the name a bit w/the release of Swansong, their last release which really was lame. Heartwork still stands up today and has aged well as a death/grind release.
