Carcass release Heartwork
Heartwork is the fourth album by metal band Carcass, released through Earache Records in 1993.
The album was recorded at Parr Street Studios, Liverpool between May 18 and June 21, 1993.
The sculpture depicted in the cover art, "Life Support 1993", was designed by H.R. Giger, and is in fact an update of a sculpture he created in the late 1960s. The video for the song "Heartwork" features a real-life interpretation of the sculpture, including a human welded as a part of it. The album is back in print for the first time in years following the June 2, 2008 Dualdisc reissue.
Michael Amott left the band after the recording of the album before founding Spiritual Beggars, and was temporarily replaced by Mike Hickey. In The Pathologist's Report, Bill Steer says Heartwork is his favourite Carcass album.
The band Carnal Forge named themselves after the song from this album.
