Yay! It's finally Friday Scribbler Fans! Start your weekend off with a bang with some death metal!! Back in March Carnifex released their 5th album Die Without Hope and now have released a video for the track Hatred & Slaughter. I can't think of two things more on my mind these days so share a headbangin' good time with Old Man Feind!
Now I'll admit I've never been much of a Carnifex fan. They've been playing some average to above average deathcore since their inception and like metalcore it isn't generally my "thing". I'm not going to sit here and say they are awful or any such just in general these genres aren't that appealing to me. Some day I'll rant about genre labels here but I'll save that for another day. However, no matter what I thought of Carnifex in the past I actually liked their 5th album Die Without Hope very much. Carnifex have matured and found melody making the songs on Die Without Hope much catchier while still remaining as brutal as ever. If, like me, you aren't a deathcore fan perhaps you haven't thought much about Carnifex but if you like brutal death metal I highly recommend giving Die Without Hope a shot, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Case in point is the song Hatred & Slaughter which is indicative of the rest of the album. Give it a shot you just might like it. This is a pretty straightforward performance video but the song is killer. Check it out...
See pretty damn good, right!?! Again Die Without Hope is well worth checking out and you can get yourself a copy over at Nuclear Blast here. You can get some upcoming tour dates via their Facebook page though there doesn't appear to be that much. They'll be playing in MA in October with GWAR & Life of Agony and in CA in November with Unearth and Decaptitated (Hey did you check out my Decapitated article? Go here and do it now!) Also if you need further convincing here is the vid they did for the title track, Die Without Hope.
So what do you think Scribbler fans? Have Carnifex won you over with their latest or were you already a fan? Let us know with your comments below!
