Carnage was founded at the end of 1988 by Michael Amott and Johan Liiva in Växjö, Sweden. They released two-widely traded demos The Day Man Lost and Infestation of Evil in 1989. Plagued by lineup changes, Carnage eventually released their only album, Dark Recollections in 1990 when Michael Amott was the sole remaining founding member. The album was released as a split CD with Cadaver's Hallucinating Anxiety on Necrosis Records, a subdivision of Earache Records, and was re-released with bonus tracks in 2000.
