Brutal Death Metal from Italy
"Hailing from Rimini (Italy), Carnality started their career as a five-piece brutal death metal act with the former members Marco Righetti (guitar) and Manuel Arlotti (drums),whith the vocalist Thomas Ghirardelli, the guitarist Christian Conti and the bass player Patrick Amati to complete the lineup. With the same lineup Carnality recorded at Gabriele Ravaglia’s Fear Studio their first demo ever entitled "Torment of Eternal Sorrow", characterized mainly by Cannibal Corpse influences .
In 2001, after a lineup change (Capu filled the vacancy in the band as bassist after P. Amati left), the band relied again to Gabriele Ravaglia and his recording studio for the realization of “Brutal Execution”, a mini-CD of three tracks with which the band earned the title of “Top Demo” on the magazines Grind Zone and Metal Shock, thanks to a renewed, darker and richer, style. Two years later the band recorded a new mini-album, "Beyond the Gate" again relying on the experience of Gabriele Ravaglia .
2007 was a suffered year for the band, that had to face several lineup changes: Capu , T. Ghirardelli and C. Conti left the band which, thereafter, will continue its career as a quartet, with the new vocalist Andrea Manenti (Krydome and former member of Muculords and Entity) and the bassist William Leardini . Thanks to a renewed and stronger lineup, the band finally managed to record their first full-length at Fear Studio with Simone Mularoni (DGM , Empyrios) . The album simply titled “Carnality” was released in November 2011 for the Belgian UltimHate Records, and was well received by critics and fans for its sound characterized by a powerful and highly modern production and very technical songs. Soon after the release of the album A. Manenti left the band, and Luca Scarlatti (ex – E.T.H.A.N.) took the place of vocalist in early 2012. Then the band starts a good series of live shows in promotion of the new record, coming to share the stage with bands like Vile, Necrodeath, The Modern Age Slavery, Lacerated and Carbonized (BRA), Antropofagus, Hideous Divinity, Logic of Denial and many others.
In late 2013, Carnality faced a new challenge: after separationfrom bassist W. Leardini and the arrival of Shane (ex - Dawn Under Eclipse), the band recorded the new concept-album “Dystopia” at Simone Mularoni’s Domination Studio. The new album is carachterized by a powerful, clear and defined production, where each instrument clearly emerge from a huge wall of sound. It’s the direct evolution of the previous full-length sound’s with a certain and well-studied usage of melody, especially in guitar solos, to enrich a strong and fierce technical brutal death metal, denoting influences that comes from Nile, Job For a Cowboy and Behemoth"

1 man metal for the apocalypse from Hudson, New York
"Listen to The Raygun Girls and you will hear the roar of the Apocalypse, the thunder of revolution, and the outcry of dissent.The sound of The Raygun Girls has been described as “an Industrial Motorhead” and has been compared to Lacuna Coil, Prong and Killing Joke.
In 2003, Geoff and Jamie started a side project that was heavily influenced by Heavy Industrial Metal bands like Fear Factory, Rammstein and Nine Inch Nails. The band was meant to be only a studio project, but after the release of Mars Eclipsing in 2004 was met with great acclaim, a live band was formed. Since then, members have come and gone, each adding something new to the sound of The Raygun Girls. 6 full length albums have been released, an East Coast tour was played, and a record deal was signed (albeit for a short time).
In 2009, Geoff had his third heart surgery and brought the band to a halt. “I stopped hearing the music for a while,” says Geoff about the creative drought he experienced from 2009 until 2011. The live band was dissolved, but Geoff couldn’t stop making music. In 2011, Geoff became a one man Hard Rock/Metal band and released The Taker. Because of Geoff’s recent heart surgery, the music was heavier, slower and much dirtier. “I wanted to play fast, but my arm just couldn’t do it yet.” That was only the beginning of new era for The Raygun Girls.
2013 saw the release of the Self-titled Hard Rock concept album, The Raygun Girls. It was an ode to the Apocalypse, and it rocked hard. “The political climate at the time was very charged. You had Occupy Wall Street happening, you had the overt legislation of women’s rights and bodies, and you had the overt racism towards hispanics on the rise.”
Throughout 2014 and 2016, The Raygun Girls has released about one single a month with the help of lyricists, vocalists and musicians from around the world – from Sweden to Texas, from Germany to California; many of which were collected in the album Ghost 15, released in January of 2016.
But, never slowing down, Geoff is ready to release another Raygun Girls album in August 2016, Rising Dawn – 12 crushingly heavy Alternative Metal songs with a dash of Goth melodies and a pinch of Industrial synths, and always with memorable choruses that you can sing along to."
