San Diego, California-based metal outfit CARNIFEX will release its seventh studio album, "World War X", on August 2 via Nuclear Blast. The official music video for the disc's first single, "No Light Shall Save Us", featuring Alissa White-Gluz (ARCH ENEMY), can be seen below. The clip was directed by Scott Hansen, who has previously worked with POSSESSED, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, DEICIDE and PRONG, among others.
CARNIFEX's frontman Scott Ian Lewis comments: "Collaborating with Alissa on 'No Light Shall Save Us' was a joy from the start. Alissa was able to elevate the song with a dynamic that's completely new for CARNIFEX.
"There is a melody and depth on 'No Light Shall Save Us' unlike any previous CARNIFEX song. It's the perfect start to your journey through 'World War X'."
Adds White-Gluz: "With 'No Light Shall Save Us', I think CARNIFEX and I have been able to create a really special piece.
"The video shoot was an incredible experience, and from the second I read the lyrics and heard Scott's vision for the song, I knew I could really build on it and express myself. I'm excited to share this with the world!"
"World War X" was produced by CARNIFEX and Jason Suecof (DEATH ANGEL, CHELSEA GRIN, JOB FOR A COWBOY). The album was recorded and mixed by Jason at AudioHammer Studio in Sanford, Florida. Vocals for the album were tracked by Mick Kenney (ANAAL NATHRAKH, BLEEDING THROUGH) at The Barracks Studio in Huntington Beach, California. The album artwork was created by Blake Armstrong.
