CARCASS- 5 DVD documentaries coming up soon

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.

CARCASS- original CD made in France-??

Question: Good afternoon! My name is Dmitriy. I am a collectioner of CD\'s of extreme music from Russia. Please, exuse me for me bad english. About 1991-1992 I bought CD Carcass - Symphonies of sickness MOSH 18CD with bonus tracks and original cover with meat collage and without logo of carcass and without title of album on the first page of booklet. I have the following problem and question:

On the back inlay of my CD where is following information:
MOSH 18CD, 5 018615 101826, Made in England.

But on CD (red picture) where is following information: MOSH 18CD, Made in France by MPO,
Published by EARACHE SONGS U.K., C 1989 Earache records, p 1989 Earache records.

CD Matrix is: Mosh Cd 18 MPO 07.

Please, help me! I do not understand what does it mean? CD made in France and artwork made in England or not? Is my Cd is a right first pessing CD
or not? I hope, that your specialists help to me. Best regards. I am fan of Carcass, Napalm death, Municipal waste, Filthy christians, Terrorizer and many other Earache bands.

Answer: yes indeed this is an early first pressing of the Symphonies of sickness CD by Carcass.Back in 1989 this was a time before the EU! and each seperate country of manufacture was required to be published on the packaging.As you rightly point out, the cd was made in France at MPO plant and the booklet/artwork was made in England- at senol printing.Nowadays the artwork probably says made in EU.

Cathedral CD + DVD release?

Question: Is there any chance you guys might reissue Cathedral\'s \"Forest of Equilibrium\"? The remastered tracks from \"The Serpent\'s Gold\" were stunning. Maybe a Dual CD/DVD? A doomster can only hope....

Answer: yeah its quite possible we will release this.We are doing a whole slew of Re-issues of our "classic" back catalog titles with FREE DVD- so far its been Napalm Death, Haunted, Entombed- and soon At the gates with never-before seen live gig from 1995, and also Deicide with never before seen gig on DVD.Carcass are having their entire 5-album career issued as CD=DVD editions aswell. So- Cathedral fit the bill-Doomsters should watch out for it!
