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.
