Taking a darker and more blasphemous approach to their already visceral sound, Carnifex will unleash Hell Chose Me on February 16, 2010. Blood curdling screams, guttural growls, double bass fury, and razor-sharp guitar riffs make for sinister and brutal work.

As the follow-up to 2008’s death metal masterpiece The Diseased and The Poisoned, Carnifex’s third album takes aggression to the next level. Influenced by the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, and The Black Dahlia Murder, this San Diego quintet really knows how to bring the brutality. Growing in notoriety, Carnifex has been featured in Kerrang, Outburn, and Revolver magazines.

“From when we started to now, a lot has changed. The progression we’ve gone through is staggering. With the confidence we have in this record, we know we will be making new fans. If anybody is expecting Carnifex to lighten it up, better luck next time. Dark, sick, painful – that’s the concept of this album lyrically, and the music brings all of that emotion and puts it right inside your head.” – Vocalist Scott Lewis

Soon to return from the Bonecrusher Fest tour in Europe, Carnifex will begin to annihilate the masses in San Diego, California on March 5 on the Atticus Metal Tour. Join the band for an exclusive Hot Topic meet and greet on February 16 at 5:00 PM at the Galleria at Tyler in Riverside.
