Hear Deathcore Crew Carcosa's Decimating New Song "Descensus"

Vancouver band boasts YouTuber Andrew Baena and AngelMaker guitarist Johnny Ciardullo

Carcosa are a deathcore band from Vancouver that boasts musician Andrew Baena, who's been running a popular metal-oriented YouTube channel for nearly a decade, and vocalist Johnny Ciardullo, who plays guitar in the other, more popular Vancouver deathcore band AngelMaker. You might know them as they guys who recently went viral for their hilarious bit of yelling out cheesy pick-up lines as mosh calls, but you should also know them as the brutalists behind Carcosa, who have a new song out today called "Descensus" that absolutely rules. 

After forming in 2019 upon the breakup of a different band, Galactic Pegasus, Carcosa dropped an EP last year called Absent that showed serious promise and quickly took off. Now, a year later, the band are gearing up to re-release those tracks in the form of a compilation album that also boasts five new songs and a previously released single.

"Descensus," which we're proud to be premiereing today, is one of those new tracks — a no-frills shit-kicker that chug-addicted fans of Chelsea Grin, Lorna Shore and Slaughter to Prevail will certainly appreciate. Take a listen above via YouTube. 

"'Descensus' is by far one of our most disgusting and moody tracks to date," Ciardullo tells us. "It's spooky, scary and heavy. The lyrics complement all of the above, taking direct influence from the 2019 film Saint Maud, which delves into the schizophrenic mind of a traumatized born-again Christian nurse. She spirals down a dark, self-righteous path that all ends in flames. What more could you ask for?"

In addition to that track, the band have also dropped a redux of their 2020 song, "A Plague," which features some bonus guest vocals from Reflections frontman Jake Wolf. Jam that below once you've warmed up your ears with "Descensus." 

The band aren't revealing any more details about the upcoming album, but they have confirmed that it will feature a "wild stable of guest vocalists" on each of the previously-released songs, which is a clever way of re-issuing tracks that fans already love. All we'll say is be prepared for some heavy hitters. Pre-orders for the album are live here.
