“With "No Light Shall Save Us" I think Carnifex and I have been able to create a really special piece”, comments Alissa White-Gluz. “The video shoot was an incredible experience and from the second I read the lyrics and heard Scott’s vision for the song I knew I could really build on it and express myself. I’m excited to share this with the world!”...

Carnifex’s frontman Scott Ian Lewis comments: “Collaborating with Alissa on "No Light Shall Save Us" was a joy from the start. Alissa was able to elevate the song with a dynamic that’s completely new for Carnifex. There is a melody and depth on "No Light Shall Save Us" unlike any previous Carnifex song. It’s the perfect start to your journey through "World War X"”.

“World War X” was produced by Carnifex and Jason Suecof (Death Angel, Chelsea Grin, Job For A Cowboy). The album was recorded and mixed by Jason at AudioHammer Studio in Sanford, Florida.
