* NewSoundAlbum:
** ''Reek of Putrefaction'' was a Main/TropeMaker for goregrind
** ''Symphonies of Sickness'' showcased more of a Music/DeathMetal sound while also having hints of goregrind.
** ''Necroticism'' was a full departure from goregrind with Carcass fully embracing Music/DeathMetal while also showcasing a [[Music/TechnicalDeathMetal tech-death]] sound.
** ''Heartwork'' was another Main/TropeMaker, in this case for Music/MelodicDeathMetal.
** ''Swansong'' had the melodeath from its predecessor mixed with Death 'n' Roll.
** ''Surgical Steel'' was a return to the band's sound from ''Heartwork'' with a small hint of tech-death.

* FollowTheLeader - Every death metal band who opted for [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness ultra-eloquent, medically accurate lyrics]], especially in the more grind-infused subgenres, were influenced by Carcass' approach.
** Also, the entire genre of goregrind, a genre which has been summarised as unabashed Carcass revivalism (though there were other purveyors of it out and about at the same time, particularly Impetigo and General Surgery).
*** The use of growls of multiple pitches in death metal is also something pioneered by Carcass.

* BlackComedy: "Empathological Necroticism", which is about a coroner getting high on the gases produced by putrefaction and making a mess out of an autopsy.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: More like Mundane Made Horrifying. "Swarming Vulgar Mass of Infected Virulency" is a song about acne. Carcass manage to make such a trivial matter into NightmareFuel.

** The gorn thematics came back in ''Surgical Steel'', but without all the [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness loquaciousness]] and {{squick}} employed in the first three albums.

* ShoutOut: Music/JohnZorn namedrops them as an influence on his album ''Music/{{Radio}}'' by Naked City. "Grand Guignol" by Naked City justifies it's obsession with taboos, fear, terror and evil by making a comparison between historical authors, artists and musicians who made works inspired by these things. One of the names mentioned is Carcass.

* RockTrio: During their first two album period (after which a second guitar player was on each album) and on ''Surgical Steel''.



* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: Averted.

* ScaryMusicianHarmlessMusic: Averted.An inversion (pretty average guys, as shown above...who happen to be massive influences on a huge amount of DeathMetal-related music).



* SpiritualSuccessor - Arch Enemy (featuring former Carcass guitarist Michael Amott). Thematically, Music/{{Exhumed}} is probably the closest candidate, as they're easily the most successful Carcass-worship act at this point.
* ThePeteBest: Sanjiv.
