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."

no surprise here. dropping the hard back in conjunction with a wall flag salute. opening for two of the greats in suicide silence and Whitechapel is no knock... turn around in the murder pit and catch an air max falcon kick to dome. balcony dives and nu hate all night 'Deathcore' Jon

what a strange time we live in. where an opening band can squeak out just over 6k albums and get to run tell dad "FCK YOU DAD THE BAND IS GONNA MAKE IT...WE MADE IT ON THE BILLBOARD TOP 100" Strange times indeed.

This band would be NOTHING without copying NAILS and Jones.

"this band were never any good, hence why they never MADE it" this sentence were never any coherent, hence why nobody should READ it
