More Info:

Carnal Tomb from Germany's chaotic and vibrant capital city Berlin deliver their eagerly awaited third album, which is entitled "Embalmed in Decay" and perfectly channels the spirit of old school death metal. Slightly shorter tracks, fast forward blast beats, and their characteristic doom-driven passages all add up to a contemporary version of classic death metal that will cement the German's status as one of the hottest young acts of this most brutal genre. Carnal Tomb took inspiration from the works of H.P. Lovecraft as well as gore and zombie movies such as Amando de Ossorio's 1972 genre classic "Tombs of the Blind Dead", and old Italian funeral places called 'putridarium', in which the corpses of the deceased were left to rot. These themes have also inspired the morbid cover artwork of "Embalmed in Decay" by the artist Skavaldur. Carnal Tomb were formed in Berlin in 2014 out of a hunger for old school death metal that possessed all band members. Besides a remarkable number of demo recordings, EPs, split and single releases, their two full-lengths "Rotten Remains" (2016) and "Abhorrent Veneration" (2019) earned the band an excellent reputation in death metal circles around the globe. With the putrid death metal horror of "Embalmed in Decay", Carnal Tomb raise the blind dead from their tombs and unleash these monsters and other brutal evils upon an unsuspecting world.
