When Brooklyn, NY thrash metal crossover band CARNIVORE wasfirst formed in 1982 by groundbreaking vocalist Peter Steele, no one could have predicted the influence they would inject into underground heavy metal culture, or the legacy Steele would carry on into Type O Negative. The raw energy of their aggressive and often shocking, violent live assaults reverberated beyond the walls of the New York City clubs they frequented, creating an impact acknowledged throughout the metal community even today.
CARNIVORE attacks once again on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Bowery Electric in New York City (327 Bowery) as part of the Black N' Blue Bowl 2017 Pre-Party Show, featuring headliners Cro-Mags.
Retaliation era guitarist Marc Piovanetti a.k.a. "Marc Carnivore" will present "30 Years of Retaliation" and celebrate the life of Peter Steele by performing a set of tracks from the record, including "Sex and Violence", "Jesus Hilter", "S.M.D." and others. Marc will perform vocals and guitar alongside Adam Tranquilli (Bloodfeast, Retaliation) on guitar and backing vocals, Jake Blochinger (Circus of Steele, The Banner) on drums, and Paul LaPlaca (THOR, Circus of Steele) on bass and backing vocal. This is the first time any type of full CARNIVORE set will be performed by an original member since Peter Steele's passing.
