So, Carnal Forge is back. When they went on hiatus in 2010 to work on side-projects, it seemed touch and go if the break would ever end. However, as promised, the Swedish thrashers have returned and they’re hitting the ground running, looking to claw their way back to the top!
The line-up has changed a bit, but the core is the same. Sometime drummer Chris Barkensjö has been replaced by Lawrence Dinamarca (Bleeding Utopia, Loch Vostok), and founding guitarist Jari Kuusisto returns after leaving in 2008. Finishing the ensemble is vocalist Jens C. Mortensen, bassist Lars Lindén and Petri Kuusisto on lead guitars.
The band’s currently in Petri Kuusisto’s studio, Studio SoundPeaQ, working on two brand spanking new songs. Perhaps a follow-up to 2007’s ‘Testify for my Victims’ is next.
