Belgian death metal band CARNATION have unveiled a lyric video for the song “Hellfire”, taken from the upcoming album ‘Chapel of Abhorrence’! The new offering is slated for worldwide release on August 17th, 2018, via Season of Mist, HERE
CARNATION comment on the track: “Hellfire is the second track of the upcoming Chapel of Abhorrence album. It was the first track that we’ve written for this album, back in 2015. The song describes one’s descent into a personal hell where he is doomed to be tortured for an eternity. The lyric video, made by Scott Rudd, showcases the incredible artwork that Juanjo Castellano created for us. The design contains visual references to the lyrics of several songs on the album.”

Embrace the new death metal overlords with their death metal offering, ‘Chapel of Abhorrence’!
CARNATION equals blistering death metal madness from Belgium. Early 2013, guitar player Jonathan Verstrepen created the band to show his appreciation for the old school death metal legends from the ‘80s & early ‘90s. Vocalist Simon Duson, bass player Yarne Heylen, guitar player Bert Vervoort, and drummer Vincent Verstrepen were summoned to complete the band, and it didn’t take long until the chemistry between this quintet to hit critical mass.
2015 marks the year that the first offering entitled ‘Cemetery of the Insane’ was released upon the masses. Tracks such as “Explosive Cadavers” or “The Rituals of Flesh” take you back in time to the better days of shredding riffs, neck-breaking drums, and skull-crushing guttural vocals.
The live rituals that followed were executed with stone cold merciless aggression. CARNATION delivered their bloodbath at select festivals across Europe during 2015 and 2016. Their next journey led them to distant Asia for their first tour across mainland Japan. This resulted in the infamous ‘Live at Asakusa Deathfest’ recording (2017). These releases, combined with their reputation as a notoriously impressive live act, drew the attention of fans worldwide and provided CARNATION with the opportunity to perform at several European festivals and saw the band touring alongside PESTILENCE during their special Brazilian tour in April 2018.
With ‘Chapel of Abhorrence’, CARNATION welcome you to death’s domain and invite you to witness them rise to their throne!
