Carnivore's first album is honestly a milestone in the history and it kicks ass. Carnivore is one of those bands who make real thrash from the east cost. The east coast sounds more like crossover and a little bit hardcore. So the first song from Carnivore is 'Predator'. The Intro from 'Predator' is very cool beacuse it remind's me of the Vietnam war in the 6o's because you hear helicopters. Predator' is one of those songs that really thrash and it sounds like the old Metallica back in the early 80's. The lyrics are about the nuclear winter. And at last I say this album is a MUST-HAVE for everyone that wants to know more about the band from Peter Steele before Typ O Negative.

Story from booklet: "It has been estimated that the nuclear devastation of WW III and the meteorobacteriological genocide in the latter part of the 20th and 21st centuries exterminated 92% of the population. All but a few survivors took refuge beneath the scarred surface of the dying planet to escape the endless glacial night of the nuclear winter that soon followed the Holocaust. And now, 6 generations later, mankind's subterranean, mutated, atrophied descendants emerge to view the earth and the sun for the first time in 200 years... only to be met by a roving band of hungary, surface-dwelling, cannibalistic neobarbarians - selectively bred by evolution to adapt to the harsh reality of their brave new world; Nuclear Warriors, whose driving forces in life are SEX and VIOLENCE, whose philosophy is kill or be killed - eat or be eaten. Carnivore consists of: PETRUS T. STEELE vocals/bass, LOUIS BEATEAUX percussion/vocals, KEITH ALEXANDER guitar/vocals. The trinity pledge allegiance to God, Country and most importantly - to each other. They will stop at nothing in their quest for raw, hot flesh and women (alive or dead) and the ultimate acquisition of the planet."
