Carnifex score their highest sales, chart debut to date

Slow Death, the new album from San Diego, California deathcore band Carnifex, sold roughly 6,400 copies in its first week of release in the United States. The tally earned the album a debut of No. 95 on the Billboard 200 chart. This is the band's highest showing on the Billboard 200; their previous album, Die Without Hope (2014) peaked at No. 98. "In a time when record sales are at an all-time low, we have nearly doubled our first weeks sales," said Carnifex. "We watched the buzz swell from the bottom up — it was a word-of-mouth campaign that put this record into unprecedented charting position. Thank you to all our fans for their diehard support! See you on the road."
