CARNIVORE's management has issued the following update:
There seems to be some confusion regarding a website that some believe is an 'official' CARNIVORE website and also a CARNIVORE logo/T-shirt, that some believe is also an official CARNIVORE item.
"It would be appreciated if this information could be sorted out now before the Wacken festival as there already seems to be some confusion.
"If anyone sees that t-shirt... it is NOT official merchandise. There is a difference."
As previously reported, photographer Linda Aversa has uploaded a number of pictures of CARNIVORE's "secret" warm-up show Friday night (July 28) at Fontana's in New York City, where they appeared under the name THE BENSONHOIST LESBIAN CHOIR. Check out the photos at this location.

CARNIVORE has been confirmed to appear at the Wacken Open Air festival, set to take place August 3-5 in Wacken, Germany.
Natives of Brooklyn, N.Y., CARNIVORE spent their early years in the 1980s earning a reputation as one of the area's most dangerous bands. Crowds would stare in utter shock as these instrument-wielding warriors would take the stage clad in futuristic outfits that typified the meaning of CARNIVORE.
Dressed to the hilt in fur-covered shoulder pads, spikes, hockey equipment, nails and anything that gave them the appearance of flesh-eating monsters (photo), CARNIVORE frequently drenched the front rows of their audiences with blood, brains, and innards, provoking a maniacal reaction like frenzied sharks being taunted with buckets of chum.
Original CARNIVORE guitarist Keith Alexander (later of the short-lived PRIMAL SCREAM project) was killed in a bike accident on July 11, 2005.
