Review: Carnage Inc - Tenebris

Carnage Inc. came flying out of Mumbai in 2012, and it took them about four years to release a debut EP Fury Incarnate in August 2016. Now after three years later, the band returns with a new release Tenebris, which is an amazing effort.

Bringing only the finest of elements from thrash/speed, prog and death metal, this release is everything you would expect and then some. It is so full of speed, ideas and finger bleeding riffs. It’s hard to be able to decide on any stand out tracks, opening out with “Eradicate the Empire,” “Deathscape” and “Saffron is the New Black” all fitting very much in the thrash metal league. Abuse of speed, aggression and the pedal to the floor attitude all come through from the off, you can’t help but feel pumped up by them!

“High on Panic” is along a more melodic death metal vibe, which really show boats the talent after the thrashing of the first three tracks (technically four, considering the opening intro). Bringing in some amazing passages with great finesse, and beautifully harmonies of melodic playing but all with a slight heavy metal feel with clashing chords, yet all still very up and at them with intensity.

The power and dynamic of “Monstrosity" is all in the writing abilities here. As Tenebris plays on, the song epitomizes everything about them and this record, aggression, speed, progressiveness, and an all round raw talent that is everything this genre needs. I honestly wish more bands were like this.

As far as dedication to metal music, this band has it in waves, and they are full well in deserving of an equally dedicated fan base. Speaking of which, become a fan and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
