Official press release:

San Diego, California-based metal outfit Carnifex are proud to announce their seventh studio album, World War X, will be released on August 2nd via Nuclear Blast. Today, the band releases the first single, "No Light Shall Save Us" featuring Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), with a music video directed by Scott Hansen (Possessed, Deicide).

Watch the video for "No Light Shall Save Us" featuring Alissa White-Gluz here:





Carnifex frontman Scott Ian Lewis comments, "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."

"With 'No Light Shall Save Us' I think Carnifex and I have been able to create a really special piece," comments Alissa White-Gluz. "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!"

World War X was produced by Carnifex and Jason Suecof (Death Angel, Chelsea Grin). 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.

One of the only remotely tolerable deathcore bands for some time, this looks like the final nail in the coffin. Everything about this seems uninspired.

Can't believe that a band like this has managed to stick around for 7 full length albums...is there really still a market for this?

I avoided Falling Cycle because I "didn't like christian metal" which is really weird of me because I listened to Symphony in Peril and Sinai Beach
