Short, but oh, so fucking sweet!
This is title track taken from their upcoming album “I Am King” out Sept 2nd, hopefully it will include even more of this brutally tasty and chaotic style. I’m writing it down on my list of anticipated releases immediately.
Behold the black door
My sickness rose between us
Here you roam,
Confined in prison cell
The ghost of your voice in a
Disgusting taste whispers my name
Spit to the face my darkness shall embrace
Sexual meat disappeared in a blink
Dogs always keep their promisies
As you puke on my feet
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.
“Here I am
Condemned but to taste and brood over
The poison of days
Melancholia, my sad love
With you I’m bound to fall
These guys! Their music makes me happy. Happier than a pig in mud, happier than Dracula volunteering at a blood drive, happier than a poor person winning the lottery! Here’s their new feel-good video with footage from their first live shows and other smiling moments. It’s for the song ‘Defenders Of Oasis’ from their fantastic debut album Streets of Rage that came out in the beginning of this year.
