While some bands are getting accused of having fake “playthrough” tracks, Carnivora are stoked to show just how real their guitar work is with this new video for “Bogdweller.”


“There’s been a lot of recent backlash against guitar fakery and bands posting heavily edited playthroughs overdubbed with half speed recordings,” the band explains. “We wanted to present something more human and raw.”

From Salem, Massachusetts, Carnivora cast a sonic hex shaped by big riffs and captivating melodies. The Witch City road dogs continue to carve their niche as they fuse influences from groove metal and sludge with a pinch of metallic hardcore flavor inherited from New England’s scene ancestors.

The 2019 release of “Bogdweller” marks a rebirth for Carnivora and the debut of their revamped lineup. Pairing some of the heaviest moments ever delivered by the group with an ambitious vocal section, the single represents their first venture into clean singing.
