The undisputed masters of blackened deathcore, CARNIFEX, have returned to ignite sonic memories of albums past with the scorch of old-school sound. In less than a month, the band will release their eighth studio album via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band releases the live video for the track “Slit Wrist Savior.” Check out the video filmed during their “Road to Rock Fest 2021” tour, here: https://youtu.be/uWnIs1pf_8M
CARNIFEX comments, “We revisited ‘Slit Wrist Savior’ all these years later to remind ourselves where we started and to remind the fans what having fun in the pit is all about.”
CARNIFEX‘s “Graveside Confessions” is no stranger to the harsh world in which it was created. While all of humanity experiences the turmoil of pain, weakness, and betrayal, it is also deeply ingrained in our nature to keep these notions closely protected; to keep them secret. Often as we approach death, we feel an insatiable need to reveal these things to one another; to confess.
The album arose just in time to aid in celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the debut CARNIFEX album, “Dead In My Arms.” The band revisited their first album to re-record 3 songs, but now with huge advancements in production technology. A return to their roots, these songs act as the completion of a circle; a return to where things first began.
“Graveside Confessions” will be available in the following formats:
- CD Jewelcase
- Red Cassette
- Red & Pink Swirl W/ Black Splatter
- Clear W/ Red & Black Splatter

With the engineering of the record completed in-house by drummer Shawn Cameron, the band recorded the album at Back Lounge Studios in San Diego, CA almost entirely themselves with the help of Mick Kenney (ANAAL NATHRAKH, BLEEDING THROUGH) for the mixing and mastering. This process especially compared to CARNIFEX albums of the past developed a far more satisfying and concentrated artistic vision for the band. CARNIFEX enlisted English artist GODMACHINE, who has worked on the two previous albums, to create the next installment of visual art for “Graveside Confessions.”
