Swedish death metal act Lik just released the second single taken off the new album "Carnage." Check out "Dr. Duschanka" in the player above! "Carnage" hits the street on May 4th via Metal Blade Records. Pre-orders are available over here. On the song, the band commented: "'Dr. Duschanka' is a gruesome piece about what can go down if you happen to book yourself into the appointment of your nightmares. We were looking for a video that necessarily didn't need to depict what happens in the lyrics, but reflects the dark and gritty story. At an early stage it was decided to do a classical performance video inspired by old classics like Pantera's 'I'm Broken'. Together with crew of 'The Happy Creative' we achieved this and the visual distortion goes well with the sonical!"
Responsible to capture "Carnage" on tape was once again Lawrence Mackrory (Darkane, F.K.U). This time things where stepped up a notch as the recording took place in the famous Dugout studios in Uppsala where Daniel Bergstrand also added some spice to the infernal stew. In the land where the craft is polished to resemble something else than brute reality, Lik has no passage as this entity is devoted to make a permanent mark in those who lay down their souls to rock'n'roll. That's why the recipe will always, and has always been, to record as much live as possible. Keeping editing to a minimum offers a "what you hear is what you get"-experience. That's why it feels like you're on the spot at a live gig, rather than a calm studio environment when you spin the disc. The new offering from the Stockholm group delivers more of what you got on the debut. It's an effort where you can expect everything from slow and bone crushing songs to fast and furious riffs. The lyrics are once again about everything between heaven and hell, both in reality and in fiction. It portrays the deepest corners of humanity and it also flirts with old school horror. The track listing is:
1. To Kill 2. Rid You Of Your Flesh 3. Celebration Of The Twisted 4. Dr. Duschanka 5. Left To Die 6. Cannibalistic Infancy 7. Death Cult 8. The Deranged 9. Only Death Is Left Alive 10. Embrace The End
