Biography

(1988 – 1990)

There are multiple artists called “Carnage”.

1) Carnage were an influential Swedish death metal band and a precursor to Dismember, formed by Michael Amott and Johan Liiva in 1988. The band released only one album before dissolving in 1990.
Carnage was founded as “Global Carnage” at the end of 1988 by Michael Amott and Johan Liiva, but quickly renamed themselves to Carnage. The band released two widely traded cassette demos, The Day Man Lost, and Infestation of Evil in 1989. Carnage was plagued by lineup changes, eventually releasing their only album Dark Recollections in 1990, featuring Michael Amott as the sole founding member. By the time the album hit the streets, the band was broken up for good. The album was originally released as a split CD with Cadaver’s Hallucinating Anxiety on Necrosis Records,a subdivision of Earache Records, and was re-released with bonus tracks in 2000.
Michael Amott went on to join Carcass, and later form Arch Enemy (with Johan Liiva) and Spiritual Beggars. Matti Kärki, David Blomqvist and Fred Estby went on to reform Dismember.

2) Carnage is a Dutch dj & producer. He started dj-ing in 1998 and producing in 1999. Together with Cluster he runs Noisj.nl record label.

3) Carnage is a japanese ripping crust band featured on “V.A. - what is crust what is melocore be different hardcore” and “V.A. - Mie City Hardcore EP”

    I would love DR and The Key remastered with FDR. The Carcass albums sounded great, especially Heartwork (it has never sounded better!).

    Excellent band. I think I prefer Dark Recollections to all Dismember-albums, but that's not to say I don't like them

    1990 was a great year! Dark Recollections and Left Hand Path came out and I was born, though it's too bad I wasn't born in '69 like my dad so I could've enjoyed it all when it actually happened.
