Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the American Death Metal monsters. Carnifex's destructive debut album has already sold 25,000 copies in the U.S. alone and the band has conquered several parts of the globe including South America, Russia and mainland Europe. Hell Chose Me takes a darker and far more blasphemous approach to their already visceral Metal. There is a sense of growth and an ever higher level of aggression amongst the band. Themes of despair and isolation create the setting for the band's signature style of abrasive metal. Hell Chose Me is being touted as one of the most anticipated extreme records of 2010 and will no doubt be the final step in launching Carnifex into the vanguard of the Metal elite.

Hell Chose Me, is way different from The Diseased and The Poisoned, and I'm not going to be forced to choose what album I like more than the other, because they are both great albums. Ever since I found out they were going to record a new album, I got happy. This album is very dark, the lyrics are amazing, and so is everything else. This is an album you don't want to miss out on. I think this album is a concept album. I sort of like the less breakdowns, because if you keep releasing album, after album almost sounding the same, it can get old. Breakdowns are great for the mosh pit. Carnifex has always been one of my favorites since I started listening to them. If you like death metal, I think you should at least give this album a chance.

I've liked this band ever since they starting getting big a few years ago. I've watched them evolve into what they are now, which is a pretty good metal band. This album proves that they can actually play their instruments pretty well and pull off some complex songs. At first the album may seem like nothing special but after you listen to it a bit more and more, it grows on you.

Is it better than their last album? Maybe. Is it a good progression? yes.

Carnifex is one of the best deathcore bands around. Hell Chose Me is their newest release and is much darker and their most talented release yet. They have a much more professional sound and it all works well together. This is a great album and is a prime example of the new deathcore/deathmetal scene

Mixing together death metal with elements of hard, grind, and metalcore might not exactly be a unique concept. But even still, the way Carnifex do it is somehow unique, or if not wholly original, than at least distinguishable form the hordes of "deathcore" imitators that have cropped up since the turn of the century. It could be because Carnifex have a drummer, Shawn Cameron, who is excellent (and needless to say, as brutal as a battering ram), and two exceptional guitarists who churn out above-average technicality and riffs. True, this San Diego-based band might have a vocalist (Scott Lewis) who is pretty darn generic -- as he takes on the Black Dahlia Murder style of alternating between freakishly high screams and low death metal grumbles. But even so, with music this brutal, it is hard to imagine Lewis doing anything else. So, in a nutshell: Carnifex might not be the most revolutionary or life-changing outfit out there, but they do an exceedingly good job of creating brutal, hardcore inflected death metal on this, their third release.

"Hell Chose Me" rockets out of the starting gate with the ferocious title track, a ferocious, no holds barred attack, and a totally chaotic and frenzied free-for-all of instruments, including chunky riffing, and drum blasts which kick up dust and debris frenetically. All told, it all makes for one very devastating opening blast, and one that uses melody only as an afterthought (although it does pull back for one totally unexpected, and even borderline doomy-sounding breakdown near the end.) Then, following "Dead Archetype," another uber-busy and blistering blast-fest, comes "Entombed Monarch," which is driven by rocket-propelled tempos, jackhammering blast beats, lumbering rhythms, and commanding, full-bodied vocals. Some subtle melodic picking (i.e.

My name is Jeff Payne and I think that it's important for everyone to know my musical tastes before anyone reads my review because music reviews are so one sided and territorial that it makes it unclear as to whether or not the cd is worth a listen. There is no good or bad. It's all about opinion. I am a huge fan of hard music, and when I say hard music, I mean bands like "Despised Icon," "All Shall Perish," "The Acacia Strain," "Through The Eyes of The Dead," and "Whitechapel." I do not like sing/scream bands that can't make their mind up to be heavy or sound like "Savage Garden" within the same song. This to me is very corny and I believe that it's a fad more than anything. I can describe this album several ways. I think it's funny to read heavy metal reviews where they compare it to "an unstoppable freight train" "riffs so chuggingly heavy, they'll melt your face off dude" or my favorite reviews, "Metal is dead! This music is a total rip off of Vader, Venom, or some other random obscure 70s or 80s whatever metal band." This to me does not tell you anything about the album other than the fact that a stinky long haired fanboy is writing a review for it. Nevertheless, I think that "Hell Chose Me" is the definitive Carnifex album. If you listen to the bands that I described above you should have no problem enjoying this album as it feels right at home with all of the others. The reason that "Hell Chose Me" stands out to me over the rest of their catalogue are the cleverly placed hooks within each song creating a steady flow of unpredictable music that never backs down. "Hell Chose Me" has more traces of Death Metal than the other 3 albums that Carnifex has put out including "Until I feel Nothing" which is their latest release. There is no clean singing here.Read more ›

If you're a fan of deathcore, or metal in general, then you will probably enjoy this record. Its a fast, heavy record with plenty of groove. Its got some good technical guitar pieces and smooth bass parts, with the crazy drum styles and vocals you would expect from the genre. I cannot complain about this album. "By Darkness Enslaved" is the standout track for me, and I recommend that song to get a feel for the band and this album. Their cover of Slayer's "Angel of Death" (which is a vinyl / iTunes bonus track) is by far the BEST Slayer cover I have ever heard in my life. This record does NOT have any throw-away tracks, but I do find myself skipping songs sometimes. Carnifex is undoubtedly among the best in the deathcore sub-genre, and this album is definitely worth owning.
