CARNIFEX is something musically unique. What really makes CARNIFEX stand out from the throngs of other Hard Rock acts currently scouring the planet, are their savage live performances. Their declaration to make every night an experience for fans rather than just a show, has proven to be the most appreciated trait of the band among fans. But you can keep your pyrotechnics and other special effects at home as CARNIFEX relies solely on the power of their music. “Every night, we strive to play extremely tight. Sometimes it can be difficult to make such an intense show so interactive, but we make sure that everyone is getting involved,” says Lewis.
Their fifth full-length album »Die Without Hope« (2014) marks the long awaited return of the band, with their Nuclear Blast debut.
The band will release their new album entitled »Slow Death« on August 2016 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Scott Ian Lewis: "This album will reshape our genre and be looked back on as an album that started a new movement for aggressive, dark metal. We're going to show those who love us and those who hate us just how far reaching our ambition is."

Winds Of Plague
The Southern California purveyors of pain, WINDS OF PLAGUE, are going to quickly change the landscape of heavy music upon the release of their much anticipated third full-length release, Against the World, which is a perfect metallic assault of angst ridden fury. The group went back to their roots channeling the basic, urban hardcore elements, which made their debut offering, Decimate The Weak, such a stand-out underground cult classic. The partnership with Grammy Award winning, platinum producer Matt Hyde (No Doubt, Slayer, Hatebreed) proved to be exact component needed to push each member's performance beyond their comfort zones to ultimately reach an unexpected plateau that is sure to create a buzz within the scene. Against the World is simply a bare bones assault of uninhibited aggressiveness that will serve as a much needed wake up call to the masses and beat any listener into oblivion.
After annihilating the masses on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest throughout the summer of 2010, WINDS OF PLAGUE now prepares to further spread their carnage across North America on The Warped Tour in the summer of 2011. This is a huge opportunity for the band to perform in front of a different crowd while definitely bringing something unique to this festival to separate themselves from the pack. Expect big circle pits and one of the most energetic performances of the day.
Johnny Plague (vocals) further states: "We set out with producer Matt Hyde to raise the bar for WINDS OF PLAGUE both as a band and as musicians. We put a lot of our writing focus into the energy and the structure of the songs and everything else just seemed to fall into place naturally. We really just wanted to create a fun but heavy album. We still topped every song off with over the top epic orchestral arrangements, but we brought back the more hardcore, live show elements from Decimate The Weak. Unlike the previous release this record is not a concept album, which gave me freedom as a writer.
Both fans of Decimate The Weak and The Great Stone War will be pleased for we haven't altered the formula or strayed from our roots, but injected them with rage and fury. This record is beautiful, ignorant and heavy.
"The Warped Tour has been an event I have been attending since I started going to shows and needless to say, I have always wanted to participate in it, so we are very excited to say the least. Warped has always been known for the eclectic lineups and I am anxious to get in front of a new crowd and continue to build the WOP army. It's going to be a wild summer, so we hope you can all come and hang with us."
WINDS OF PLAGUE further solidified their status as one of the hottest up-and-coming metal acts upon release of their highly acclaimed, sophomore album, The Great Stone War, which made an impressive debut in its first week landing at #73 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The offering quickly propelled the band to the forefront of the American metal scene.
