San Diego, California death metallers CARNIFEX have completed recording their new album at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, SIX FEET UNDER). An early 2014 release via Nuclear Blast is expected.
"After a year and half of writing and five weeks in the studio, we are very excited that tracking for the new album is complete," commented vocalist Scott Lewis.
"Not only is this the best production we have ever had, the depth in each song is beyond anything we have previously written. We combined the best parts of our previous albums with elements and influences we only touched on in the past. This is the album CARNIFEX was always meant to write."
On the band's new label home, Lewis stated: "Signing with Nuclear Blast is a career-defining moment for CARNIFEX. To be aligned with the largest metal label on earth is a true honor. This worldwide deal signals a turning point for us as a band and individuals. Together with Nuclear Blast, you will see CARNIFEX like you have never seen us before. Prepare yourself for an album that crushes any and all expectations. An album that will stand as the definitive mark for modern metal."
CARNIFEX's Nuclear Blast Records debut will also introduce new lead guitarist and longtime friend of the band, Jordan Lockrey.
CARNIFEX's latest album, "Until I Feel Nothing", was released on October 25, 2011 via Victory Records. The CD was produced by Tim Lambesis of AS I LAY DYING.
