Carnifex is a Latin word meaning “executioner”. Carnifex formed in 2005 in San Diego, California, United States with a starting lineup of Scott Lewis, Cory Arford, and Shawn Cameron, as well as former members Steve McMahon (bass) and Travis (guitar). After releasing two demos they were signed to underground label This City Is Burning Records and released their debut album Dead In My Arms on July 12, 2007. The reasonable success of this album, and the prevalence of the deathcore genre as a whole, attracted the attention of Victory Records.

Carnifex signed to Victory Records in 2008 and released The Diseased and the Poisoned in June 2008, which reached #19 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers Chart. On February 16, 2010, Carnifex released their third studio album, Hell Chose Me. On October 24, 2011, their fourth album, Until I Feel Nothing was released on Victory Records, and was produced by As I Lay Dying vocalist, Tim Lambesis. On October 9, 2012, the band’s vocalist, Scott Ian Lewis, announced via Carnifex’ Facebook page that the band is going on indefinite hiatus. However, on July 9th, 2013, the band announced that they were resuming activities, and even announced that a new album was in the works - Die Without Hope, which is scheduled to be released March 4th, 2014.

    It's fucking deathcore. What did you expect from lyrics? And IMO they are just good for their musical style. Carnifex has much better lyrics when compared to some other deathcore bands.[2]

    V Agree, the lyrics are pretty damn cliché, especially in their newest release. Reading the lyrics on the album booklet felt so cheesy! However I fucking love the band, and Die Without Hope is an amazing album.

    Die Without Hope pretty much destroys everything else they've done. Especially their first album, which is mediocre at best.

    Die Without Hope is so much better than Until I Feel Nothing [2] Following up their weakest album with possibly their best.
