San Diego deathcore brutes Carnifex found themselves at a crossroads in late 2012. After seven years of toil, but not much to hang their hats on save for a solid underground following, the time had come to figure out whether it would make more sense to take a break, or simply break up. They opted for a hiatus. It turned out to be a fortuitous move – and a surprisingly short one to boot.

Less than a year later, Carnifex were back in action, freshly signed to a better deal with Nuclear Blast after three releases with Victory, and with a renewed energy and purpose that manifested itself in their fifth and latest album, Die Without Hope, which will be issued March 4. The album brings a decidedly more extreme metal approach, with splashes of black metal in its keyboard forays and overall grandiosity and a crushing, uncompromising heaviness throughout capped by frontman Scott Lewis’ grim, nihilistic lyrics and imposing vocals.

In an e-mail interview a couple weeks before Carnifex launched a headline tour of the states to promote Die, Lewis offered the following about the band’s much-needed break, their quick return and what he hopes is a bright future ahead – even if his personal view of things past, present and future is far less optimistic.
