This news story was originally published here: https://www.prog-sphere.com/reviews/carnage-inc-tenebris-review/

The thrash revival movement is somewhat of a touchy subject for many a seasoned veteran of the genre. Whilst bands such as Bonded By Blood and Lich King have a few decent songs and are just about listenable they are certainly a far cry from the days when thrash was consistently gifting many amazing bands. The core difference between “Bonded By Blood” and many of the old thrash bands such as Anthrax, Megadeth, Kreator, Coroner and Annihilator is that each of those older thrash bands had at least one release to truly be proud of and brag about and that laid the template for what each of these rip-off revival bands have attempted to create. From the modern thrash scene however there is one band that can truly be mentioned up there among the best of the bands in the genre and that is Carnage Inc.

Hailing from Mumbai in India, Carnage Inc. is a trio originally formed in 2011. The band are heavily inspired by Voivod but this is only limited to their progressive style of thrash metal as the band’s first release, 2016’s “Fury Incarnate,” proved. Carnage Inc. combine intricate song structures with a variety of riff tempos and some highly technical guitar work alongside murderous vocals.

Carnage Inc - Tenebris

“Tenebris” is an album that sounds completely fresh among a collection of revival groups that sound like carbon copies of their influences. In place of the reliance on fast tremolo picked guitar lines Carnage Inc. brought something new to the table. After an intro title “Veljeys,” “Eradicate the Empire” instantly captures the listener’s ear and doesn’t let go until the full album has finished by which time you are flat on the floor wondering what just hit you. The guitar work on this release is about as varied as it gets, as is immediately evidenced by the thrilling “DeathScape” and “Saffron is the New Black.” “High on Panic” opens up with some slower chord based riffs before plunging headlong into a lightning fast verse riff that still remains marvelously creative. If your jaw is not already on the flaw by now with absolute awe then the ridiculously well placed guitar fill after the chorus should do so. This is also an album that does not let its solos dissolve into mindless shred fests as this song also shows with a fantastic solo that sounds so great within the context of the album and adds the icing to an already amazing cake.

The progressive side of this band is also something really amazing. The song structures are constantly adjusting and evolving meaning that even the longest of songs on the album do not get remotely boring. This is a band that does not know how to not fire on all cylinders and put in one hundred and ten percent effort as both their releases can stand testament to.

From the dark and chaotic sound of the album to the faint jazz influence to the manic song structures, “Tenebris” is an album that succeeds on every level and is an album that will never fail to amaze. I recommend this to anyone who wants a progressive metal album that constantly evolves and remains exciting all the way through.

This news story was originally published here: http://www.insideoutmusic.com/newsdetailed.aspx?IdNews=23830&IdCompany=8

InsideOutMusic are set to release the self-titled debut album from Philadelphia- duo Rise Twain on September 6th, 2019. The union of Brett William Kull (producer, audio engineer, and member of Echolyn, Grey Eye Glances, and Francis Dunnery’s New Progressives) and J.D. Beck (The Scenic Route, Beck-Fields, author & playwright) bring their collective years of direct and varied experience in writing, performing and recording music together for their impressive debut.


Today they launch the 3rd single, and final preview track, titled ‘Oh This Life’ and you can listen to it now here: https://youtu.be/XUWr1Vyg180


The band comments: “Sometimes a complete song appears and is constructed as if it was always here; the songwriter just a conduit to allow its declaration into being.


“Oh This Life” is a song at our most immediate – available to intimate observation, confession, and creativity.”


The album is also now available to pre-order on Limited CD Digipak, 180g Black Vinyl LP + CD & as digital album here: https://risetwain.lnk.to/RiseTwain


The track-listing is as follows:


1.     Everspring
2.     Golden
3.     The Range
4.     Lit Up
5.     Death of Summer
6.     Oh This Life
7.     Prayers
8.     Falling Skies
9.     Into A Dream
10.  That Is Love


Talking of how the duo came together: “I produced an album for J.D.’s original band, The Scenic Route”, says Kull, describing his first meeting with Beck in 2007. “They were a rocky, progressive kind of band, like a Jeff Buckley kind of thing. I was immediately drawn to his vocals. He’s such a strong singer.” Kull says he and Beck immediately hit it off, what he describes as an “inevitable connection.”


Adds Beck, “I just knew I had to work with Brett on a higher level. When I came in to cut the vocals on the Scenic Route album, the way we worked together…some people you just gel with, and then some people you have a barrier with. Brett and I gelled.” They spoke of one day collaborating on their own project, which finally surfaces as Rise Twain.


Discussing the album’s musical direction, Beck notes, “There’s not a typical structural theme that we use over and over and over. ‘Organic’ is a word that comes to mind. Seeking openness through simplicity and allowing the complexity of music to exist without the necessity of overly packing it or overly processing it. With that we were able to achieve such a broad spectrum of sound, and a colossal sense of its existence, without having to have a billion guitars and a billion things put over top. There’s some colouring with strings and other embellishments, but it really is something very simple and stripped down, and it’s awesome.”


Kull adds, “There’s a lot of complexity in this, but it’s not overt in the least bit. But yet, when you get into it, there’s all this really rich harmonic and dynamic stuff going on.”


RISE TWAIN are:
J.D. Beck: Piano, lead and backing vocals
Brett William Kull: Guitars, bass, keys, percussion, lead and backing vocals
