Originally released in 1993, Heartwork was Carcass' biggest-selling album, and their first to land in the top 50 of the UK charts. The album has been specially remastered from the original tapes using Full Dynamic Range (FDR) mastering, allowing the music's nuances to shine through and giving the whole album a more ferocious, immersive and dynamic sound than ever before.
The typical method of delivery for mastered audio involves using heavy limiting to restrict the dynamic range and increase perceived loudness. However, this results in unwanted artifacts caused by the process, such as the increased likelihood of distortion. This led to what is known as "the loudness wars", with the dynamic range of music being restricted more and more in an effort to make it sound louder.
Full Dynamic Range, on the other hand, delivers music at its optimum sound level dynamically, leaving the listener to decide on the playback level. This means that the track is not heavily limited to increase perceived loudness - you hear the tracks as they were made and intended to sound, with no loss of quality.
The Heartwork Full Dynamic Range edition is available now on CD, including four bonus tracks and a limited edition slipcase sleeve, and is also available on limited edition coloured vinyl LP in the following quantities and colours:
100 - Desensitized White (SOLD OUT)
200 - Right Ventricle Blue (SOLD OUT)
