A performance offering enhanced by a tale of post traumatic stress, this video takes the experience of modern warfare to a whole new level.

I’ve been following Carnifex since they released The Diseased and the Poisoned back in 2008 and I’ll be honest, I never understood the hate.

Sure, this group is from another branch of the metal tree but does that make their music (Deathcore) any less significant, less brutal? I’d argue the opposite.

Carnifex has unified and revolutionized their sound with the addition of black metal elements and it’s time for the world to take notice. Slow Death was arguably one of the best metal releases of 2016.

Their darkest and heaviest album to date, the record was packed with terrifying vocals, epic solos, devastating break downs and unfathomable tales of morbidity. Throw in some groovy riffs and amazing drumming and it’s easy to tell why this five-piece outfit of death metal veterans have transcended metal stereo types.

Now, Carnifex has returned with a new effort. World War X will be unveiled on August 2nd 2019 via Nuclear Blast. Some new visuals have just been unveiled. “World War X” the official video for the self-titled track.

A performance offering enhanced by a tale of post traumatic stress, this video takes the experience of modern warfare to a whole new level. From the door to your home, to a battle zone, there is no finality in sight. In the end, we’re left wondering if this is a new dimension or just a twisted break in the human psyche.

As a fan of both black metal and deathcore, this track and accompanying video delivers a wicked combination and ferocious atmosphere. Carnifex has officially established themselves as a powerful moniker in today’s music scene. Check out this new effort by and let the trauma of war contaminate you! \m/
