Carnivore was an American crossover thrash metal band formed by Peter Steele (later of Type O Negative fame) out of the ruins of the Brooklyn hard rock group Fallout. They released two albums: Carnivore (1985) and Retaliation (1987). The band broke up not long thereafter. The first album is more traditionally metal-sounding, drawing inspiration from Black Sabbath, Mot├Ârhead and 1970s Judas Priest, while the second has significant hardcore punk/crossover influence.
