BILL STEER Says He Is 'Open' To The Possibility Of CARCASS Reunion

After years of consistently shooting down any possibility of a CARCASS reunion, guitarist Bill Steer appears to be finally changing his tune. In a brand new interview conducted last week in London by Patrizia Mazzuoccolo of the Norwegian metal radio show "Tinitus", Steer had the following to say when asked if there was a chance that CARCASS could reunite for some live performances: "It's a possibility 'cos it's been discussed. I've become a little bit more open to the idea. The other guys are definitely open to the idea. You never know."

Bill Steer's entire interview with "Tinitus" will air on Wednesday, March 28 on Norway's P3.

"Tinitus" is Norway's most popular metal show with an average of over 60,000 listeners per week (1.5 percent of the country's population!).

To tune into P3 via the Internet, follow the instructions that are posted on the "Tinitus" MySpace page at this location.

Speaking to Metal-Rules.com last fall, former CARCASS frontman Jeff Walker stated the following about the possibility of a CARCASS reunion: "Mike Amott [guitar, now in ARCH ENEMY] really wants to do it. I spoke to him on the phone the other week, and he wants to get Bill to Sweden to convince him to do it. If those two guys wanna do it, then I'll do it. Ken [Owen, drums] can't do it. I asked him last year [2005] that if we did it, would he be upset, and he's like, 'No, do it, go for it.' I was at Download [in 2005], and all these bands were playing, all these American bands, and they were all like AT THE GATES/CARCASS/PARADISE LOST rip-off bands. I just thought 'Fuck, this is so easy. We could do it so much better.' I was really enthusiastic about doing it. I was on the stage with H.I.M. playing, watching them play to 60,000 people — we never did that. It would be great to be playing to that kind of audience. I've been doing so much stuff since then that I don't need to do it to make myself happy. . . We weren't a very good band anyway. I can still do those vocals at the drop of a hat. I'd have to try and remember all the bass lines. The problem is Bill's lost interest — he hasn't played like that for a long time. So he would have to retrain himself. But if anyone can, he can, because he's such an intelligent guy. If he was here, he would say 'Never say never'. At the moment it Mike's pushing Bill, because he really wants to do it. He's always joked about doing it, and I was always like 'fuck off — no way!' Then he's talking it's like 'maybe next year.' It's not my decision. If Bill does it then I'll do it."
