Many of you will find this video to be beneficial to your mental health. Yes, you are the masses who are feeling lost, empty and alone because it’s the weekend. We know how much you miss the office. Never mind, you only have to endure two days before you can get back to those invoice books, filing cabinets and rush-hour traffic.
Let Carnifex improve your state of mind by infusing you with grimness and brutality. Their deathcore can rip out any sensitivity in your soul if you have one or believe you have one.
This is a live performance of a track from their most recent album, “Die Without Hope”. I’m afraid deathcore has the opposite effect on me. It makes me smile, dance and chase happy bubbles.
Intraneum, a melodic/technical deathcore band that started in Poland this year, contacted us with an invitation to listen to “Complex Kind”, a track from their debut EP, Perfection. Well, hello to Kuba Buras (guitar), Paweł Puzio (bass) and Wojciech Wołoszyn (vocals). If this is a taste of things to come, I for one would certainly like to hear more from you guys.
Carnifex are known for many things including hectic tour schedules, brutal live performances and, of course, quality deathcore. Their new label, Nuclear Blast, released the title song, “Die Without Hope”, yesterday to promote the band’s new album. Die Without Hope was released in March. It is Carnifex’s fifth album, and their first since 2011.
I’ve mentioned previously that my favourite music videos are the ones that show the band in action without actors and props to perform the storyline of the song. This video nicely displays the most appealing aspects of Carnifex, such as blistering drumwork, solid rhythm, superior guitar solos and melodic keyboards. All that plus the uncompromising delivery by Scott Lewis, one of the best baritone dark vocalists in the business, adds up to a pretty cool video package.
The stunningly good deathcore band Whitechapel have just released a live video to coincide with their current, two-month tour of North America. After watching the vid, I can only drool in envy because I’m 10,000 miles away in Zululand. This is one of the top bands I would dearly love to see in action.
