Here’s more info via Marc Piovanetti:
Last May, I was very fortunate to perform Carnivore music live again for the very first time in over 20 years. The jubilant and humbling reception I received confirmed to me that Peter Steele is gone, but his epic legacy is not forgotten. So this Halloween the two remaining original members of Carnivore, myself and Louie Beato, will open up the next chapter in the band’s ever evolving history. We will introduce the mighty Baron Misuraca, who’s stature and beastly growls have already awakened Peter Steele fans across the globe. A new official line-up of Carnivore will be introduced: “Carnivore A.D.”, a Carnivore for the 21st century. Everyone is invited to join us in this celebration, and to mark the 30th anniversary of Carnivore’s final LP, RETALIATION. I am also very pleased to have the honor of presenting this distinguished performance of Peter and Keith’s music to their own friends and family members here in the greatest city in the world, at New York’s Bowery Electric club. The “Carnivorous Negative family scene” is finally whole once again, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.
Marc is also involved with Circus of Steele, an all-original group that pays tribute to Peter Steele. The band is set to invade Gramercy Theatre on September 24 with Sacred Reich and Byzantine [TIX]. Circus of Steele‘s new six-track EP, The Zombies Rise, comes out in the fall (listen to the new single “The Downfall,” plus more below).
