History

The deathrash metal band became active by three school-mates (Gotting, Hedner and Persson) in 2011 and released a demo in 2015. By this juncture singer Olof Gotting had left. Another demo, called The Universal Culmination, came in 2016. It was recorded at Sunlight Studio with Tomas Skogsberg. The band sporadically uploaded several songs, but the next actual release was an album courtesy of Satanath in March 2020. In the meantime, the band opened for Pestilence in Scandinavia and then alongside Unfound Reliance opened for Cannibal Corpse in Zagreb, Croatia in 2019. Nyström became the guitarist in 2020. The band opened for Suffocation and Belphegor in 2020.

Carnosus means ‘plenty of flesh.’

Reviews

CARNOSUS - DOGMA OF THE DECEASED - SATANATH  
This album is Carnosus' debut full length following several singles and demos. Envenomation Of The Population immediately hints at a dystopian theme and the music has a At The Gates tone but perhaps leans more towards a technical American sound ala Revocation. Solos by Rickard Persson and Felix Ringmyr sprinkled in the songs add a further boost to the technical nature of the band. The faster pseudo blasting sections then add even more metal elements. The songs follow more or less the same formula with technicality, solos, screams and slightly heavier and then more controlled sections. For example Deceptive Authority belongs more to the latter more controlled style. Melodic death metal as it can be called. Totalityranny invents a new scary system of government and starts slow and features another even more melodic sounding solo. Is the second half of the album heading towards being slower? The latter songs seem to be headed that way but Enthroned resuscitates things a bit. The closer, Continuum Of Misery, does a bit more too but the album is not all the same tempo throughout. The eleven songs and 45 minutes don't present any originality but make up for a good and promising release. - Anna Tergel
