Time and time again, this genre was thought to become an extinct species like so many musical trends of the last twenty-five years. However, American Death Metal has not only withstood the test of time but also persevered like a stubborn cockroach amongst a nuclear debris. Over the last few years it has grown in numbers and style just as it has in strength and stamina. Death Metal is hands down one of the most important subgenres of the metal underworld and CARNIFEX has had the pleasure of experiencing the rise in profile firsthand. Their destructive debut album has already sold 25,000 copies in the US alone and the band has conquered several parts of the globe including South America, Russia and mainland Europe. They are on the cusp of becoming one of the most successful bands emerging from the New Millennium of American Death Metal. Their upcoming opus, Hell Chose Me, takes a darker and far more blasphemous approach to their already visceral metal. There is a sense of growth and an ever higher level of aggression amongst the band. Themes of despair and isolation create the setting for the band's signature style of abrasive metal. Hell Chose Me is being touted as one of the most anticipated extreme records of 2010 and will no doubt be the final step in launching CARNIFEX into the vanguard of the metal elite.
