The undisputed masters of blackened deathcore, CARNIFEX, have returned to ignite sonic memories of albums past with the scorch of old-school sound. Today, the band releases their eighth studio album ‘Graveside Confessions’ via Nuclear Blast Records. In celebration, the band offers fans the visualiser for the track Cold Dead Summer.
CARNIFEX comments, “Graveside Confessions is available everywhere today, this record is 100% for the fans that kept us alive all these years, come see us on tour and get the record!”
CARNIFEX’s ‘Graveside Confessions’ is no stranger to the harsh world in which it was created. While all of humanity experiences the turmoil of pain, weakness, and betrayal, it is also deeply ingrained in our nature to keep these notions closely protected; to keep them secret. Often as we approach death, we feel an insatiable need to reveal these things to one another; to confess.
The album arose just in time to aid in celebrating the 15-year anniversary of the debut CARNIFEX album, ‘Dead In My Arms’. The band revisited their first album to re-record 3 songs, but now with huge advancements in production technology. A return to their roots, these songs act as the completion of a circle; a return to where things first began.
With the engineering of the record completed in-house by drummer Shawn Cameron, the band recorded the album at Back Lounge Studios in San Diego, CA almost entirely themselves with the help of Mick Kenney (ANAAL NATHRAKH, BLEEDING THROUGH) for the mixing and mastering. This process especially compared to CARNIFEX albums of the past developed a far more satisfying and concentrated artistic vision for the band. CARNIFEX enlisted English artist GODMACHINE, who has worked on the two previous albums, to create the next instalment of visual art for ‘Graveside Confessions’.
