News: Belgian Death Metallers Carnation Unleash New Single ‘Replicant’

Belgian death metal maniacs Carnation have released their new single and music video “Replicant,” taken from the album Cursed Mortality. The new song is a glimpse at how the Belgian death metal band have evolved on their upcoming album. The video was directed by Guilherme Henriques.

Watch the official video of “Replicant” on YouTube:

Vocalist Simon Duson shares his thoughts:

“What would you do if you came to realize that you were programmed to live for only four years? Would you accept the outcome, or try to figure out a way to extend your lifespan? Replicant is a song about dealing with the finiteness of our existence. The song was inspired by Roy Batty, a character from the movie Blade Runner. His tale perfectly embodies the message we want to portray with this track. Musically, it’s quite diverse and different compared to most of the music we have created until now. We hope this will be a welcome surprise for new and old fans alike.”
