Release Date:11/18/2016;Notes:Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing with insert. Housed in original album artwork with embossed Carnivore logo. Carnivore was an American crossover thrash band from Brooklyn, New York founded by the late singer and bassist Peter Steele (Type O Negative), and was formed out of the breakup of the Brooklyn metal group Fallout in 1982. Carnivore released their self-titled debut album Carnivore in November 1985. For this album, the band spelled their names in what they thought were 'exotic' ways, Petrus T. Steele and Louie Beateaux. The band often dressed as warriors in torn clothing and spikes attached to hockey gear during their live shows at this period. The debut album was heavily influenced by the contemporary New York metal scene. It also drew inspiration from Black Sabbath and early Judas Priest. The 'post-apocalyptic' theme that dominated the first album and was carried onto parts of the second album, was apparently inspired by a dream Pete Steele had and which became the basis for the lyrics of 'Predator', the first song from the original album. The lyrical theme was then expanded on to describe human society (or the lack of one) between imaginary World Wars 3, 4 and possibly 5 (as referenced in the song 'World Wars III & IV'). Other lyrical themes included nihilism, anti-religious sentiment, cynicism and explicit but tongue-in-cheek depictions of gore and despair.
