Among the most glittering yet enigmatic jewels in the Swedish metal crown, Carnage’s Dark Recollections – their only album, recorded at Sunlight Studios – presents a deathly labyrinth of implosive sound drenched in cold visceral mystery. From its Lovecraftian cover art inward, Dark Recollections reminds us that extreme metal at its peak was a potent purveyor of worlds within worlds, a dark instrument of the war against reality.
