    Carnifex have released a video for “World War X,” the title track of their upcoming album.

    True to its title, the video—which was directed by Carnifex frontman Scott Lewis—depicts the lasting impact war has on the people who wage it. It begins with a conflict sequence, following a soldier who appears to be the last of his squad alive on the battlefield. Rattled but determined to fight on, he charges towards the gunfire, only to wake up from the dream he’s been having on his couch. But his nightmare doesn’t end there.

    “World War X” follows previous single “No Light Shall Save Us,” which features Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz. Both tracks will appear on World War X, the deathcore band’s seventh studio album due out August 2.
