San Diego, California-based metal outfit CARNIFEX will release its seventh studio album, "World War X", on August 2 via Nuclear Blast. The official music video for the disc's second single, the album's title track, can be seen below.
"World War X" was produced by CARNIFEX and Jason Suecof (DEATH ANGEL, CHELSEA GRIN, JOB FOR A COWBOY). The album was recorded and mixed by Jason at AudioHammer Studio in Sanford, Florida. Vocals for the album were tracked by Mick Kenney (ANAAL NATHRAKH, BLEEDING THROUGH) at The Barracks Studio in Huntington Beach, California. The album artwork was created by Blake Armstrong.
Vocalist Scott Ian Lewis comments, "I think we came up with this really unique ebb and flow to all the songs that really compliments what we're trying to do with the theme. 'World War X' isn't a concept album but it is a heavily themed album."
