Bill Steer (Carcass/ ex- Napalm Death)

  • Post category:Podcast

Join us for a chat with guitar iconoclast Bill Steer as Carcass prepares for a tour of Australia alongside The Black Dahlia Murder and Freedom of Fear throughout April 2024. We kick off the discussion by revisiting the seminal album Scum by Napalm Death, where Bill shares memories of the recording process and his contributions to the album’s songwriting.

We discuss From Enslavement to Obliteration, which topped the UK Indie charts, and explore its lasting significance to Bill and the band. We also talk about the idea of performing the album live at festivals.

The conversation shifts to Carcass’s The Curse EP, and Bill explains his departure from Napalm Death and provides insights into the catalyst behind his decision. Exploring Carcass’s sonic evolution from Reek of Putrefaction to Symphonies of Sickness, we discuss the inspirations behind the intricate compositions on the latter album, showcasing the band’s growth and musical prowess. Moving on to the making of Necroticism—Descanting the Insalubrious, Carcass’s first ‘guitar hero’ album, Bill shares the process of recruiting Michael Amott and their collaborative songwriting approach. Reflecting on the band’s deal with Columbia Records in the US, we discuss what could have been done differently.
