One thing leads to another. On April 27 we announced our sponsorship of a tour by West Virginia’s Byzantine with Mobile Deathcamp from Ohio. That led to our May 8 announcement of a follow-on tour by Mobile Deathcamp with support from Massachusetts-based Carnivora. And that led to what you’re about to hear — our premiere of a Carnivora song named “A Vision In Red” from their new EP The Vision.

The Vision is a four-track offering that follows the band’s 2013 full-length debut, Eternal, and “A Vision In Red” is the EP’s opening song. The song blends together riffs that alternately swarm and jab, a flurry of pugilistic drum strikes, and a couple of flickering, spiraling guitar solos that really light up the song like a Roman candle — not to mention a nimble, thrumming bass line and some bleeding-edge vocal excretions.

 

 

But what gives the song an added dimension and another layer of texture is the smoothly flowing melody that eventually surfaces, providing a contrast with the jolting vehemence that surrounds it. This is a high-energy, multi-faceted song performed with instrumental flair and a lot of evident passion that stands up well to repeat listens.

The Vision EP is set for release on June 23, 2015. Pre-orders for the EP are now available on Bandcamp via the link below, and pre-orders will get you an immediate download of the song we’re premiering today.
