Gig Review: Carcass / Conjurer / Coffin Mulch – Slay, Glasgow (27th May 2023)

It’s been a while since I’ve seen some live death metal so when I saw the announcement for Carcass a while ago, I instantly added it to my gig calendar.

Little has been released from the album so far ("Dance … Continue reading Album Review: Carcass – Torn Arteries
