Carnifex have been on a constant upwardly mobile path since their inception just over a decade ago. Daring to transcend the label of “deathcore”, Carnifex have continually improved over their 6 full-length album, culminating in career highlight Slow Death, released last year. Fearlessly exploring black and death metal influences, it’s the band’s most successful album both commercially and critically.
One wonders, though, where Carnifex’s sound could go next. And if vocalist Scott Ian Lewis has his way, perhaps we might see the band move toward an industrial sound, influenced by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails? That would be pretty cool.
I'm thinking about the next album from the stand point of what would a Carnifex album sound like if Trent Reznor helped write it.
