"ARES" is the new release from the band CARVED in collaboration with Freecom Hub. Advanced by the three singles "Justice Falls", "Doom" and "Sovereign", Ares is the fourth studio album of the Italian band; album recorded, mixed and mastered at Domination Studio, by the trademark of the giants Simone Mularoni and Simone Bertozzi, already producers of the previous "Kyrie Eleison" and "Thanatos", and the presence of very special guests like Olaf Thorsen, Simone Mularoni himself, and Gianluca Cagnoli.
ARES was masterfully represented by the stunning artistic talent of Gustavo Sazes, who realize the artwork. With this new concept album, Carved presents a titanic and accurate work, and a brilliant production at the service of a dystopian and post-apocalyptic, and so actual, journey focused on the mythological figure of Ares, God of War, along a red thread that intertwines on three temporal strands and tells the influences of divinity on all sorts of conflicts, from purely war contexts to internal and personal battles.
Strong by a recent tour in the UK, the band is already at work to schedule the next live gigs for a great promotion of this album, after an historic live activity, which saw them share stages with giants like Slayer, Gojira, Amon Amarth, Eluveitie, Moonspell and many more.
It was the year 2007 when Carved started to forge first plates of memory, carving their road to a paved path of labours and emotions. And this journey absolutely needs a brand-new chapter.
After three Death oriented full-lengths “Dies Irae” ,“Kyrie Eleison” and “Thanathos”, and an intense live promotion by Truck me Hard, which allowed Carved to support prestigious acts like Amon Amarth, Moonspell, Skyforger, Novembre, Vader, Necrodeath, Death to All, Eluveitie and Slayer across Europe, a new epic concept album ARES is born.
With a new female singer and new orchestral director and composer, Carved are ready to carve their own path.
