Guitarist Marc Carnivore announced that the band Carnivore is going to reform as Carnivore A.D. with original members Louie Beato and Joe Branciforce on drums. Also joining the band on bass and lead vocals is Baron Misuraca from Vasaria.
Baron’s debut with the band will at their Halloween show called, “A Halloween SteeleTacular”, at the Bowery Electric in New York City on Halloween night. Tickets are around $20, and the show starts at 7:00, but you have to be 21 or older to get in.
The decision to get the band back together comes out of great respect to Peter Steele, who passed away a few years ago. Marc Carnivore says, “Last May, I was very fortunate to perform Carnivore music live again for the very first time in over 20 years. The jubilant and humbling reception I received confirmed to me that Peter Steele is gone, but his epic legacy is not forgotten. So this Halloween the two remaining original members of Carnivore, myself and Louie Beato, will open up the next chapter in the band’s ever evolving history. We will introduce the mighty Baron Misuraca, who’s stature and beastly growls have already awakened Peter Steele fans across the globe. A new official line-up of Carnivore will be introduced: “Carnivore A.D.”, a Carnivore for the 21st century. Everyone is invited to join us in this celebration, and to mark the 30th anniversary of Carnivore’s final LP, RETALIATION. I am also very pleased to have the honor of presenting this distinguished performance of Peter and Keith’s music to their own friends and family members here in the greatest city in the world, at New York’s Bowery Electric club. The “Carnivorous Negative family scene” is finally whole once again, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”
