Confirmed For Roadburn Festival 2008; On Tour Now

Denver's CEPHALIC CARNAGE have been confirmed for the 2008 Roadburn Festival, held the weekend of April 18 in The Netherlands.

CEPHALIC CARNAGE will perform on Saturday, April 19, during the festival weekend held annually at the 013 Club in Tilburg. The band won't perform their unusual and uncompromising marijuana-induced grind. Instead, CEPHALIC CARNAGE is going to drone out at Roadburn 2008 playing the entirety of their epic Halls of Amenti, their ultra doom-influenced record from 2002, as part of an entire set of drone and doom. The band will be doing this special set only at Roadburn, performing Halls of Amenti live for only the second time ever. For more information on the Roadburn Festival, please visit www.roadburn.com.

CEPHALIC vocalist Lenzig Von Stroking comments on this special performance: Cephalic Carnage is going to drone out with the droniest of the drone at Roadburn 2008, and be a mile high while doing it -playing Halls of Amenti, and plodding through the chaos with visuals that will bring tears, sighs, awes, smiles and joys...or sadness. It will be a complete honor to play such a prestigious event in an amazing country and city. In other words: Our live performance will be like Dillinger Escape Plan plodding through the La Brea Tar Pits."

CEPHALIC CARNAGE are currently on tour with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER in New Zealand and Australia in support of their brand new album Xenosapien. Immediately following, CEPHALIC will join label-mates DYING FETUS on their current US headlining tour. A complete listing of CEPHALIC CARNAGE tour dates can be found in the tour section. Learn More

Many thanks; again and again, to the Denver scene and we look forward to the rest of this incredible tour and the many that will follow.?

Begin Work on New Full-Length; To Support SLAYER in Denver

CEPHALIC CARNAGE have entered the studio to record their as-yet-untitled new full-length album.

CEPHALIC CARNAGE (Lenzig Leal: Vocals, Zac Joe: Guitar, John Merryman: Drums, Steve Goldberg: Guitar, Nick Schendzielos: Bass) are recording this follow-up to 2005's stellar Anomalies in the band's own studio with long time producer/engineer Dave Otero.

CEPHALIC's Zac Joe recently gave this update: We've started work on our 5th studio album and even though Colorado was hit with three of the worst blizzards in its history, which brought everything to a stand still, John has completed the drum tracks and we are neck deep into the guitars. I can say without a doubt say that John has pushed himself harder and out-performed anything I've ever heard from him, and that's saying a lot. As for the rest of the music, it gives me that excited naughty little feeling in the pit of my stomach that can only be compared to the first time you make out with your best friends girl.?The band will have the recording wrapped up by early Spring for a May 2007 release.

Additionally, CEPHALIC CARNAGE has been picked to support SLAYER and UNEARTH at the tour's Denver stop on January 31. A listing of CEPHALIC CARNAGE tour dates can be found in the tour section with more to be announced soon. Learn More
