With the Theatre rammed-packed and fired-up for Carcass, the big moment has arrived, Hitting the stage to opener ‘Buried Dreams‘Jeff Walker’s (bassist/vocalist) was as unbelievably powerful as it was decades ago. ‘Kelly’s Meat Emporium’ was terrifically terrifying, and ‘Incarnate Solvent Abuse’ escalated all the fan’s insanity.
