Illinois deathgrind/thrash vets Macabre have announced their new full-length album, titled ‘Carnival of Killers,’ which is set for release on November 13, 2020 through Nuclear Blast Records (pre-order).
To coincide with today’s LP reveal, the band have unleashed the first single off of ‘Carnival of Killers’ in the form of “The Lake of Fire” — listen below.
Guitarist and vocalist Corporate Death offered the following message:
‘The Lake Of Fire’ is about the hidden bunker that Leonard Lake and Charles Ng had where they tortured and killed young women with tools and filmed it all. Those were two very evil men so I thought the title was fitting!!! I started writing the chorus back in our Grim Scary Tales era and finally finished the song all these years later for the new album Carnival Of Killers. I hope you like it, I wanted a lot of variety on the new album, this is just a taste.
Here’s more info from today’s official announcement:
Carnival Of Killers was recorded and mixed by Tomek Spirala of Studio1134 with the exception of drum tracks as he recorded them at Kiwi Audio with the help of Mark Walker. The mastering of Carnival Of Killers was handled by J.F. Dagenais at JFD Studios in Dallas, TX. The “Where’s Waldo” meets serial killer album artwork was created by Corporate Death (lead singer | guitarist Lance Lencioni) and artist Laz Gein and highlights the album’s most memorable references.
