Carnifex Announces 10th Anniversary Tour

In addition to recently announced European shows in December, California based death metal outfit Carnifex will celebrate its 10 year anniversary this fall with a North American headlining tour.

The massive six-week trek will launch on October 7th in Los Angeles and come to a rousing climax on November 11th in the band’s hometown of San Diego.

“The reality that Carnifex has been a band for ten years is still something I can't quite grasp,” comments vocalist Scott Lewis. “I've felt we've always been outsiders from the start, even in the metal world. But what separates Carnifex from everyone else is all of you have joined us on the outside, keeping each other alive and stronger than ever.

“This tour is our way of directly connecting with our fans, giving you the biggest headlining tour we've ever put together and personally saying thank you to each and every one of you for your die hard support. We look forward to seeing all of you and sharing this once in a lifetime experience.”

The tour will feature Black Tongue, Lorna Shore, and The Last Ten Seconds Of Life. Upcoming dates are as follows: More...

Black Tongue Explores "The Unconquerable Dark"

Black Tongue will release new full-length "The Unconquerable Dark" on September 4th, 2015 via Century Media Records. The label comments:

"'The Unconquerable Dark' is a devastatingly bleak record that showcases the Hull Hate Crew's trademark down tempo sound to absolute full effect. From the opening doom drenched riffs of 'Plague Worship' to the black metal tinged 'L'appel du Vide,' to the unfathomably heavy 'Prince Of Ash' and 'Vermintide' (featuring guest vocals from Suicide Silence's Eddie Hermida), the hatred spews out of the speakers."

Produced by Black Tongue & Jesse Kirkbride (Traitors, Demolisher), the album features artwork by Ken Sarafin (Oceano, Catalepsy). The band had the following to say on announcing the record:

"Our original mindset for 'Falsifier' and 'Born Hanged' was to create the most ridiculously crushing music around. We created the heaviest music because there just wasn't anything around at the time that was as heavy as we wanted to hear. We feel like we did a pretty good job. Now there's a plethora of bands that are taking the reigns of the heavy and we love it, but a new direction is in order.

"With The Unconquerable Dark we wanted to keep the slow, low and crushing vibe but add some maturity to it. More riffs, more memorable choruses and some juicy lead thrown in. Don't get us wrong, this is the heaviest thing we've ever released (and probably that you've ever heard), but we took the time to give it atmosphere and structure instead of being heavy for heavy's sake.

Black Tongue Signs Record Deal

Black Tongue has signed a worldwide deal with SOAR/Century Media Records. The label comments:

"Acknowledged as one of the fastest rising DIY acts on the UK Metal underground, the down tempo mob have exploded onto the scene with two crushingly heavy EPs in the past year and a half.

"Formed by members of modern grind/death Metal enigmas Infant Annihilator, Black Tongue has exploded onto the scene in the most bombastic of fashions after the release of their first EP 'Falsifier,' which quickly established the band's gruesome intentions and resulted and a online epidemic of new fans.

"Now already renowned as one of the most devastating live acts on the U.K. underground, Black Tongue delivers the sort of sonic barrage that is akin to receiving an acid tipped sledgehammer to the gut. Those unfamiliar with the band can check out the video for 'Coma,' which also features guest vocals from now-label mates Martyr Defiled's Matt Jones. More...
