Question: I have preordered the latest Necroticism reissue. What I was wondering about is - what is the release schedule for the other reissues? I am really anxious to get their full discography and watch the entire documentary :)
Answer: Carcass were interviewed - all members, in liverpool and london and in various locations- for a few days in september 07, and the resulting documentary film is 2 and half hours long.It charts the history of the band from 1988's gore-soaked grind beginnings to the major label-bound Death metal chart act which split up in 1996.The whole story is told in the bands own words.The documentary is split into 5 parts- and called THE PATHOLOGIST'S REPORT. Each part comes as bonus material DVD in USA or DUALDISC in UK/EUrope on the reissue of each of the bands 5 albums which is taking place from April (with necroticism) then every couple of months, heartwork, reek, symphonies, and swansong, till the end of the year. So the parts are released in a strange sequence- parts III, IV, I, II, and finally VI.The crazy thing about the documentary is it goes into great detail of the career of the band BUT DOESNT MENTION THE REFORMATION, as this was not announced until the end of 2007.In some ways the actual getting together for the DVD was the spark for the band to reform we feel.
