As indicated by the title "Surplus Steel," these songs are leftovers from the "Surgical Steel" recording sessions. Four of them have been previously released on various editions of "Surgical Steel," but are conveniently collected on this EP. "Intensive Battery Brooding" was on the while that song and "A Wraith in the Apparatus" were both on the Japanese release. "Zochrot" was featured on a Decibel magazine, and "1985 (reprise)" is basically the opening track from "Surgical Steel" with an extra thirty seconds.

That leaves the unreleased track "Livestock Marketplace," and there you have "Surgical Remission/Surplus Steel." I love the idea of an EP like this. It's a win/win for the band and their fans. We get the extra songs without having to buy multiple editions of the album, and the band makes a few more bucks off of them. I wish more bands would think to do something like this. All of these songs have more of the hard rock aspect of Carcass's sound than the bulk of "Surgical Steel," so don't expect tons of shredding here. If you're not much into Carcass's melody and groove, you might want to wait until their next full-length. If you love to hear Carcass rock out, definitely pick this up. I thought "Surgical Steel" was the top metal album of 2013, and I can't wait to hear more from this band.
