Carnage tends to bring to mind those post-apocalyptic movies that those of us who grew up in Reagan's America love and look back upon today with fond memories. Were those movies trying to be 'Mad Max' or 'Bladerunner'? Who knows and who cares, they were awesome and still are today, perhaps in a different way now, but you get the point. Before there was such thing as "crossover" CARNAGE from the barren wastelands of South Carolina was cranking out their own punkish brand of speed metal. Perhaps the band where not going for any particular sound or genre, it just came out as it did, It would be raw, aggressive, organic, and totally DIY. The outcome was the bands self-titled full-length in 1986 that featured 7-tracks that could have easily been featured on any of the first five volumes of 'Metal Massacre'.
