JEFF WALKER DIE UND FLUFFERS - Welcome to Carcass Cuntry


It’s both brilliant and bizarre that Jeff Walker, former frontman of CARCASS, would put out something like a cuntry album. But there’s no question that such an endeavor is right up Mister Walker’s alley–a musician who has a knack for planting his tongue firmly in his cheek. And aligned with a who’s who of able metallers such as David and Vincent Cavanagh (ANATHEMA), Ville Valo (H.I.M.), Gas (H.I.M.), Billy Gould (FAITH NO MORE), Esa Holopainen (AMORPHIS), Tomi Koivusaari (AMORPHIS), Nicke Anderson (THE HELLACOPTERS), Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH), Nick Holmes (PARADISE LOST), and Walker’s ex-CARCASS bandmates Ken Owen and Bill Steer, Walker has captured a true odd-ball musical experience certainly taylored to the metal community. Covers of John Denver, Neil Young, and Skeeter Davis, amongst others, are sonically poor but righteously executed that non-followers of CARCASS and their mid-90’s death metal peers probably won’t get it! Welcome to Carcass Cuntry resonates with a drunken fervor that Walker’s naturally awful and sometimes off-key voice sound rightfully in place. Highlights include Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around,” Agnetha Faltskog’s “The End of the World,” Hank Williams’ “I Can’t Help it (if I’m Still in Love with You),” and certainly the PUSSYCAT rendition of “Mississippi”–a great drinking song. Carcass Cuntry is far from a good album, far from a metal album, yet it manages to capture everything it was crafted to be…a big joke. If you can learn to laugh along and enjoy the silliness, this will rank high on your album-of-the-year list. (Fractured Transmitter)
