We’ve been singing the praises of Baltimore based djenty deathcore-ers Carthage — and the solo projects of founding member Tre Watson, and new addition Noyan — for quite awhile now, and just yesterday we posted our review of the band’s debut full-length, Salt the Earth. I really only started liking the band once the more progressive stylings were made obvious from listening to some pre-production demos, but now that I’m hooked, I don’t think there’s anything that can get me of this damn line. While the wait for Salt the Earth has been rather frustrating — I really wanted this album — it was more than worth it in the long run. It really is a quality release, and one of the better deathcore albums I have listened to in quite sometime. While I’m not the biggest fan of that particularly sub-genre, Salt the Earth has enough interesting sounds going on in its mix to keep things fresh and allow the listener some nice breathing room,which is always an added bonus.
Now if you were like me and eagerly anticipating the release of this power-house, well fret no more, the thing is finally out! I don’t really have much else to say, go read the review if you want, or better yet go buy the album! These dudes worked their asses off to put out a quality release, and personally I think it could contend with nearly any big name release this year. I wish these guys the best of luck, and look forward to some more truly awesome music. You can buy the album from Carthage’s bandcamp page, or from the widget below. Expect to see the album out in physical release sometime in 2013. Cheers.
