Industrial Metal Cult Carrion unleashes their new album "Testament Ov The Exiled [Revised Edition]" via Brutal Resonance Records
Since it's inception in 2013, the Norwegian cult Carrion has been spewing out serpentine hymns. Led by the High Priest of Heresy, Hide Tepes, they've never repeated themselves. Carrion is a lesson in expecting the unexpected.
Earlier this year, Carrion saw the release of their album "Testament Ov The Exiled". Loyalists flocked to their upbringing and now we at Brutal Resonance find ourselves committed to the cult. It is with that Brutal Resonance Records is proud to announce the release of "Testament Ov The Exiled [Revised Edition]". Hide Tepes and his fellow culprits bring forth their gospel with buzzing chainsaw guitars, drums like thunder, and sharp cutting vocals.
Carrion extends their sermon in the revised edition with the destructive force, 'Dogs Ov Hell'. It will satiate your hunger for heresy; an aural fist in your face; a kick in the teeth delivering both a warning and a promise of the end. Fellow industrial-metal heads Decent News, dark electronic enthusiast Dead Agent, and cybernetic metallers Vanity Kills join the fray by each offering a rendition of 'The Blood ov Saints'. Lastly, a more beat driven version of 'To Eat Crow' finishes out the Revised Edition's extra contents.
Coinciding with the release of the album, Carrion has unleashed a music video for 'Putting Tape Over Martyrs Mouths (Ft. Eddie LaFlash)'. You can stream the video directly below:
"Testament Ov The Exiled [Revised Edition]" is available in both limited edition cassette and digital formats. There will only be fifty copies of the tape available worldwide. Once they are gone, they're gone. Pre-order your copy HERE.
All ten original tracks will be available upon pre-order. The bonus tracks will unlock on a week to week basis. Keep checking back every Monday for another new bonus track until all are unlocked on January 18th!
Speaking on the music video, Hide Tepes of Carrion stated, "I've recently got into experimenting with video as a way to expand the Carrion universe so to speak. I decided to make this release as big as I can with the resources I have as it`s the first time Carrion works with a label so I requested footage from my fellow collaborators [Sam Dusk & XIII] who graciously provided more than what was needed. The videos I`ve done so far have mainly been black/white so I wanted to step out of that comfort zone and do something colourful, of course there may or may not be symbolism involved here as well which I`ll say very little about so those who wish to dive a bit deeper can do so on their own accord and possibly find revelation in their journey."

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
