Album Review

Carcass was the first extreme metal act to replace "dining with Satan" lyrics with nearly incomprehensible words and phrases that belonged in a medical student's final exam essay. And subsequently, they spawned a host of similarly styled groups, such as County Medical Examiners (these chaps cut right to the chase, eh?). The group's 2007 release, Olidous Operettas, follows all the guidelines Carcass set early in their career — growled vocals, speedy tempos, and of course, simply grisly subject matter (and just as gruesome album cover art for that matter — the cover of Olidous Operettas is an oh-so pleasing conglomeration of faces that appear to be completely devoid of any skin). Make sure the proper anesthesia dose has been administered and that the scalpel is sharp before diving into such selections as "The Virchow Postmortem Procedure," "Expeditious Evisceratory Mishap," and especially the potential Top Ten hit, "Maturating Decompositional Gas."

Highly Recomended

Exelent record. Very few people know that this record exists, but these people are going to have a good run around the block. The crazy part is, this death metal band is made of three rockin' metal-obsessed doctors/geezers!!! The energy of Carcas and some... very interesting lyrics... make Olidous Operettas a worthy record.

Great Cd

Really I don't understand how anyone could give this cd a bad review. Sure this band is just mimicing what carcass once did, but they do it well. I think Carcass would be proud. Besides with Carcass hanging out more on the Melodic Side (ex.Heartwork), this band offers a fresh revival of the goregrind genre that carcass helped to develop.

these guys rock

three pathologists who practice what they preach.a great enough reason to buy this album

Comprised of guitarist Dr. Morton Fairbanks, drummer Dr. Jack Putnam, and bassist Michelle Hayes, the band released its debut (Forensic Fugues and Medicolegal Medleys) on Razorback Records in 2002. Hayes left the group the following year to attend medical school, clearing the way for new bass...
