A new, official live video of Carnation‘s latest single “Stench of Death” has hit the interwebs today, giving fans and unsuspecting bystanders alike a face-full of old school death metal.
The performance was recorded at this year’s Hellfest Open Air and features all of the headbanging, moshing, and sonic assault you can cram into a two minute and 1`7 second clip. Just from that short amount of time, it’s obvious that Carnation’s set was a killer time.
Frontman Simon Duson said the clip was a great reminder of this year’s amazing summer festivals that dotted the European landscape.
“The madness of the summer festivals is now behind us… Suffice to say that we had an excellent time during the last couple of weeks at all the fantastic festivals we performed at! We’ve been blasting our newest track ‘Stench of Death’ at every show, and we’ve managed to capture a live video for this track from during our performance at Hellfest this summer. Here’s a nice throwback if you managed to catch us live, or something to look forward to if you missed your opportunity. Hails!”
“Stench of Death” is going to be self-released on a special edition blood red 7″ LP that will also include a cover of Entombed‘s “Supposed to Rot,” which the band says is a tribute to LG Petrov. That particular LP is set for release this October, with preorders available today.
It’s been nearly two years since Carnation released their last studio effort, Where Death Lies. To that end, the band said they’re currently in the studio working on their next album, though no new information was available.
