Belgian death metal outfit Carnation released their brand new live footage for the song ”Plaguebreeder”, which is taken from the bands latest album ”Chapel of Abhorrence”. The video was recorded during their performance at the Alcatraz Festival in Belgium in August 2019.
Carnation are about to embark on their Japanese tour dates, starting October 4th in Nagoya. A full list of confirmed shows can be found below.
The band states this about the tour:
“The ‘Autumn of the Dead’ tour will be our parting gift for 2019. After three long years, we will finally return to Japan to once again perform in the land of the rising sun. Witness our death metal barrage live at the Asakusa Deathfest in Tokyo or in four other cities spread across mainland Japan. After storming the east, we will turn our attention westward for six scheduled performances in England. The majestic Damnation Festival in Leeds is also part of our itinerary, and the festival is nearly sold out…We advise those who still have doubts to attend our upcoming performances to check out our brand new live video for the song ‘Plaguebreeder’, which is one of the tracks of our ‘Chapel of Abhorrence’ debut album. The audio and video footage was recorded in August 2019 at the Alcatraz Festival in Kortrijk, Belgium.No edits, no dubs… Just total raw live energy”

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 Verstrepenwere 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. Songs 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 during2015 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!
