I say this is an absolute must buy!
Tom Servo
The song after this, "Totally Worthless," stands out, only not for the reason you might think. it is quite a bit different from most of the rest of the material.
A. Stutheit
If you like thrash/death metal this is a must have.

Oh my, this is impossible, they topped all their other albums! This is by far the BEST Carnal Forge CD yet! Brutal Thrash Metal played fast and aggressively. Sounds like a heavier version of older Slayer. It is absolutely amazing. Century Media is a lable known for amazing bands and release the best of the best and this is by far one of the best cds i've listened to all year. I say this is an absolute must buy!

okay, I wasn't expecting a followup to The More You Suffer so early, but this album is AMAZING. it's another step in their evolution from Firedemon to The More You Suffer. there's way more groove in this one, it's not quite as heavy, but it's faster than The More You Suffer, it's simpler and more like Firedemon in a lot of ways, but it has a ton of groove. basically it's a more evolved version of Firedemon. the songs are shorter again, there's 10 tracks on this album, and it's barely over 35 minutes. and that's the Carnal Forge I love. it's something I can't make myself get bored of. I've listened to it once or twice a day for the last 2 weeks, and this album still won't quit on me. the standout songs are Decades of Despair, the single released on the Century Media site for download, and The Final Hour. the next best is The Strength of Misery, it's the last track, and has the most groove and melody of any song on the album and possibly any song in their catalogue. it's too bad they lost Jonas though. I hope Jens can carry the torch and they make another wicked album after this.

Carnal Forge has been on such a breakneck pace lately, releasing basically an album a year for the last

four years, that they're finally hitting a creative wall. While I really enjoyed "The More You Suffer" and

earlier efforts, I find myself not quite liking this latest one as much. Yes they've got their time tested brand of

neo thrash revivalism displayed here in typical razor sharp fashion but it seems like they didn't have the

time to craft really solid riffs, instead using blazing speed to gloss over some of their less creative moments

or just dumping that approach altogether for some uninspiring slower songs.

That's not to say they've lost their edge as some of the songs on here are their most vicious to date but

even these are marred with less memorable riffs and far less use of melodic accents than past efforts. This

tends to give less formal distinction between the faster cuts as so they end up blurring together into one big

fast speedball. It would be impossible to choke that sucker down in one sitting if they didn't break it up with

some slower cuts but, apart from a few tasty riffs nestled throughout, these songs provide little more than a

much needed breath before the assault continues.

Of course this doesn't mean it's not a good record. It's angry as hell and delivers the goods better than

pretty much any band in this genre but it's just not quite at the level of their last release or even their

earlier, more groove based thrash work. The one area it does exceed their past efforts in the production. It'

s meatier here with a more defined edge to the guitars so you can really here the quality guitar work.

I picked up an earlier Carnal Forge disc (1998's Who's Gonna Burn) and wasn't terribly impressed, but it's hard not to appreciate an album like 2004's Aren't You Dead Yet. With this album, the Swedish neo-thrashers have found a perfect balance between Slayer-inspired thrash riffs and At the Gates-style melodic death metal.

Aren't You Dead Yet is a razor sharp thrash metal album that's completely heavy, completely brutal, and wickedly fast. I don't normally go for thrash metal, as the lack of melody makes it hard to hold my interest. Carnal Forge has just enough melodic elements to keep me engaged, and the sheer violence of these songs makes their impact almost physical. You don't just listen to songs like "Burn them Alive" and "Inhuman", you get knocked down to the floor by them.

I'd definitely recommend Aren't You Dead Yet to fans of Slayer, Lamb of God, At the Gates, Dimension Zero and The Haunted. Carnal Forge will make your ears bleed with this one!

PS - I love how the inserts are die-cut in the shape of a bullet hole that lines up with the center of the CD. How cool is that?

I used to have Carnal Forge's 1st album, & I thought it was OK. And over the years I've checked out there CDs as they were released but each one sounded still..JUST OK. But this is the 1st Carnal Forge album that finally blew me away! This CD is just non stop action from beginning to end & is easily one of the best thrash metal albums I've ever heard. What made this album different from any release I've heard from this band is simply the production is much better & the guitars just sound thicker for that really heavy sound. Well after listening to this brutal masterpiece & hearing samples from the entire album that's soon to come out from Carnal Forge, I now have high hopes for this band...& now maybe I'll check out some of the old stuff again to see if my point of view might be different. Definitely check this disc out if you love really heavy duty thrash!
