On February 12, Rustyn Rose of Metalholic.com conducted an interview with vocalist Scott Lewis of the San Diego death metal outfit CARNIFEX. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
"Die Without Hope", the new album from CARNIFEX, will be released on March 7 (Europe) and March 4 (North America) via Nuclear Blast. The CD was recorded at Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida and produced by Mark Lewis (ARSIS, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, SIX FEET UNDER). Cover art for the album was created by renowned artist and longtime collaborator Godmachine.
"CARNIFEX and Godmachine have been working together for many years," commented CARNIFEX vocalist Scott Lewis. "To be able to bring his art to the cover of this album is truly when all the pieces fell into place.
"The artwork here represents the tone and overall blackened feeling 'Die Without Hope' captures."
"Die Without Hope" will contain 10 tracks and over 35 minutes of crushing metal. Lewis states, "'Die Without Hope' is CARNIFEX at our very best. This is an album over two years in the making. We pushed ourselves every step of the process to include new elements never before heard on any previous CARNIFEX album."
