Origin: Sweden  
Genres: Death Metal
Last update/review: November 30, 2008


One of the earlier Swedish death metal bands, Carnage released one low-tuned, grindy album, Dark Recollections, in 1990. Though not a bad band at all, Carnage is more likely to be remembered as so-and-so's former band, as several of the guys went on to record elsewhere, and in fact two of the core members were in Dismember within a year of the album's release, likely signalling the end of this band.

Special thanks to DJ "Killa" for providing the opportunity to review this band!
