Carnifex by Shannon Brooke

San Diego deathcore maniacs Carnifex have officially confirmed their 7th studio album, World War X, set for release on August 2nd through Nuclear Blast. The band have just unleashed the LP’s first single, “No Light Shall Save Us” (ft. Arch Enemy‘s Alissa White-Gluz), in video format (stream it below).

Via an official statement, Carnifex‘s screamer Scott Ian Lewis says:

Collaborating with Alissa on ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ was a joy from the start. Alissa was able to elevate the song with a dynamic that’s completely new for CARNIFEX. There is a melody and depth on ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ unlike any previous CARNIFEX song. It’s the perfect start to your journey through World War X.

Alissa White-Gluz adds:

With ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ I think CARNIFEX and I have been able to create a really special piece. The video shoot was an incredible experience and from the second I read the lyrics and heard Scott’s vision for the song I knew I could really build on it and express myself. I’m excited to share this with the world!

Here’s more info on the upcoming effort:

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, CA. The album artwork was created by Blake Armstrong.

As posted, Carnifex will join forces with Cattle Decapitation, The Faceless, Rivers of Nihil, Nekrogoblikon, Lorna Shore and Brand of Sacrifice for this year’s ‘The Summer Slaughter Tour,’ which hits NY at Syracuse’s Westcott Theater on July 26 [TIX], and NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge on August 1 [TIX].
