Carcass Tap New Mixer For “Surgical Steel” After Colin Richardson Quits


Carcass‘ forthcoming new studio album “Surgical Steel” has a new mixer behind the boards. Colin Richardson (Slipknot, Machine Head) has walked away from the project after taking a stab at it for two weeks.

In light of his decision, Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Arch Enemy) has been brought onboard to helm the process. Band bassist/vocalist Jeff Walker recently said to Colombia’s El Santuario Del Rock:

“He quit yesterday. He was two weeks into mixing the album and he decided that he didn’t want to continue. So Andy Sneap is taking over. [Colin‘s] produced the album. It’s just that he’s hit a brick wall with the mix and doesn’t want to continue. And so we’re bringing in Andy Sneap to do the mix now. It’s a shame, but we finished recording the album three months ago. There are a lot of reasons for it, but the main reason is that he says he is burnt out. I guess it will be a positive thing to bring in some fresh ears.”

The album is expected to see a release later this year and will mark the groups first full-length studio release since 1996.
