Album Reviews

Belgian death metal powerhouse Carnation is one of the few bands to tackle its style with the precise sound of Swedish death metal, while maintaining a signature sound and daring to experiment with things from time to time. Their third, and massive album “Cursed Mortality” is out now, via Season of Mist, and one you won’t want to miss out on as one of the best releases of the year in our books!

Carnation seem to have outdone themselves again by setting another ferocious death metal standard that simply slays.

Twelve short, sharp and fast rhapsodies that are bound to FUCK YOU UP! Diss Guy dont step on toes, they step on necks!

Carnation’s debut album is a great release despite of the minor flaws in the album, Chapel of Abhorrence pays a very good tribute to old school death metal.
