The technical death metal machine that is CARNIFEX will release their vicious new album WORLD WAR X this Friday August 2nd via Nuclear Blast.
From the opening title track World War X to closer By Shadows Thine Held, the album is powerful, heavy, menacing and relentless, proving that Carnifex have more than enough ammunition this far into their career.
In the lead up to the release of World War X and the kick off of the Summer Slaughter Tour, we sat down with the bands frontman Scott Ian Lewis to talk about the record, tour, his graphic novel Death Dreamer and more!

Still scorching from the release of Slow Death in 2016, CARNIFEX never really stopped their writing process but rather developed one element, and continued to flow into another to create a natural path between Slow Death and World War X. Although not a concept album as it would normally be defined, World War X is conceptually rounded in a manner which displays a distinguished theme. Through the lens of war can be viewed subjects CARNIFEX fans will be familiar with; individual struggles, and internalized challenges that can feel akin to a deadly battle.
The single No Light Shall Save Us' features Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz on guest vocals and also appears in the music video (directed by Scott Hansen)
