CEPHALIC CARNAGE Announces New Guitarist

Denver, Colorado-based technical death/grind metallers CEPHALIC CARNAGE have announced the addition of guitarist Brian Hopp to the group's ranks. The band states, "He's got a really sweet bow and arrow, and his guitar playing is almost as good as his archery.

"We are extremely pleased with his work on the new record, and we think you will be, too."

CEPHALIC CARNAGE has set "Misled By Certainty" as the title of its new album, due on August 31 via Relapse Records. The follow-up to 2007's "Xenosapien" was recorded at the band's own studio with longtime engineer/producer Dave Otero. The CD is described in a press release as a "50-plus-minute journey into metal's most extreme realms" which "see[s] these veterans takes it to edge before pulling it back with 'Repangea', perhaps their most sprawling and epic work to date."

CEPHALIC CARNAGE will take part in this year's Summer Slaughter Tour alongside DECAPITATED, THE FACELESS, ALL SHALL PERISH, THE RED CHORD and more.

CEPHALIC CARNAGE's last full-length album, "Xenosapien", was released in May 2007 via Relapse Records. The CD was recorded by the band and Dave Otero at their studio in Denver. The album's artwork was designed by Orion Landau.
