German death metal lunatics HACKNEYED will release their third album, “Carnival Cadavre”, on August 22 in Europe and August 30 in North America via Lifeforce Records. The CD was once again produced by the band and Corni Bartels (DIE ÄRZTE, KILLERPILZE, END OF GREEN, MEGAHERZ) at Weltraumstudios in Munich, Germany. The artwork was created by Björn Goosses of Killustrations and can be viewed below.
Commented HACKNEYED: “An artwork ‘having hand and foot’ (German saying for ‘holding water’) in the true sense of the word!!! The truth behind the ‘Carnival Cadavre’ is only revealed after a second glance at the bright fairground and circus atmosphere with Ferris wheel and circus tents. And neither on the cover nor in the songs a lack of blood, guts or HACKNEYED‘s very own black humor can be observed.”
HACKNEYED‘s last album, “Burn After Reaping”, was released on August 14, 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records.
