King Carcass was a Philly band from the late 80’s early 90’s to describe them I’m going to cheat since my copy of the album Blind had a press pack. This review was from the City Paper writer Frank Blank from 1990.
King Carcass: High volume nasty noise at full industrial strength levels. In creating a hellacious atmosphere, the moaning guitars and crashing rhythm section suck the listener into King Carcass’ own rumbling world.
I’m not sure who this review was by:
King Carcass consists of Neil on bass, Steve on guitar, Steve on drums and Chris on guitar. The band achieves their sound working with a variety of guitar tunings and a bit of distortion.

I’ve gathered as far as I can tell their whole discography here: a demo tape, first album Blind, a 7″ and the second album Other Minds Other Species.
