Carnifex announce World War X album, unleash “No Light Shall Save Us” featuring Alissa White-Gluz: Stream

on June 07, 2019, 2:27pm

California deathcore act Carnifex have announced their seventh studio album, World War X, which is out August 2nd via Nuclear Blast. Additionally, the band has shared the video for the lead single, “No Light Shall Save Us”, which features Arch Enemy vocalist Alissa White-Gluz (watch below).

The theatrical video was directed by Scott Hansen and features a dune-filled apocalypse that alludes to the song’s subject matter, as White-Gluz and the band perform amid a desert forever darkened. The track is patented Carnifex, from brutal, chugging breakdowns to technical deathcore speeds and tempo changes. White-Gluz provides a soaring vocal moment during the song’s final climax.

“Collaborating with Alissa on ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ was a joy from the start,” frontman Scott Ian Lewis said in a press release. “Alissa was able to elevate the song with a dynamic that’s completely new for Carnifex. There is a melody and depth on ‘No Light Shall Save Us’ unlike any previous Carnifex song. It’s the perfect start to your journey through World War X.”

Added White-Gluz: “With ‘No Light Shall Save Us’, I think Carnifex and I have been able to create a really special piece.”

World War X was co-produced by the band and Jason Suecof, who recorded and mixed the record at AudioHammer Studio with vocal tracking by Mick Kenney at The Barracks Studio. Blake Armstrong created the artwork. Pre-orders for the album are available direct from the band here.

Carnifex will hit the road headlining Summer Slaughter 2019 along with Cattle Decapitation, The Faceless, and more. Those dates are below and tickets are available here.
