Carnivore: Petrus T. Steele (vocals, bass); Keith Alexander (guitar, background vocals); Louie Beateaux (percussion, background vocals).
Recorded at Braille-East Side Sound, New York, New York in July 1985.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
Carnivore's thrash-centric first album was the general public's first introduction to larger-than-life vocalist/bassist Pete Steele, and even though Type O Negative's epic brand of gothic metal was still just a glimmer in his eye, in retrospect one can already recognize the fascinating range of creative contradictions that would always characterize the 6'7" man-mountain's work. On Carnivore, Petrus Steele (as he was then calling himself), guitarist Keith Alexander, and drummer Louie Beateaux generally focused their energies on incredibly brutal and intentionally raw full-on thrash-outs like "Predator," "Carnivore," and "Legion of Doom"; plus they wore the Mad Max apocalyptic caveman attire on the album's rear sleeve to back it up! Yet there were also a few wholly unexpected stylistic departures within tracks like "Armageddon" (featuring ice pick synthesizer stabs), "God Is Dead" (with its bafflingly mix of falsetto vocals and Latin-flavored bongo breakdowns), and, most prophetic for Type O Negative fans, the delicately melodic and romantic midsection inserted into the otherwise unapologetically chauvinistic "Male Supremacy." Talk about contradictions, indeed. Also worth noting is that all of the above -- conventional thrashers and idiosyncratic eccentricities alike -- combined to narrate a larger concept that imagined the three musicians as barbaric, post-apocalyptic "Nuclear Warriors" preying upon helpless, un-mutated human survivors -- nice! Most importantly, though, as clich?d and overused as the WWIII concept may have been among '80s metal bands (let's face it, everyone was doing it), Carnivore's rare ability to tread a gray-area between straight-faced and self-amused delivery, helped distinguish the Brooklyn bunch from their peers right from the start. And that is why this debut still stands out of the untold masses of thrash metal released during the decade. [Roadrunner reissued Carnivore on CD in 2001, adding three noticeably hardcore-infused 1986 demos for tracks that would emerge on their sophomore LP, Retaliation, the following year.] ~ Eduardo Rivadavia

Daredevil Records use The Planet app powered by Shopify to neutralize your shipping emissions and removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Daredevil Records has committed to donating the most amount of money possible from your order to offset C02 emissions.  

This includes funding innovative solutions such as direct air capture and mineralization, and a small portion of nature-based carbon removal.

These funds companies such as 44.01, Carbofex, CarbonBuilt, CarbonCure, Charm Industrial, Climeworks, DroneSeed, Grassroots Carbon, Heirloom Carbon, Loam, Noya, Pachama, Planetary, Remora, Running Tide, and Sustaera.

Carbon Removal Process

Carbon removal is the process of capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then storing it.

For example, if a truck or a plane that delivers your shipment releases 1 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and you are subscribed to the Planet app, then Shopify ensures that 1kg of CO2 is also sucked from the atmosphere and stored away using solutions and technologies in Shopify Sustainability Fund.

There is a fast-growing and evolving sector with many carbon removal technologies in different stages of development. These technologies include nature-based solutions, such as reforestation and soil carbon sequestration and more high-tech solutions, such as direct air capture and mineralization.

How Shipping Emissions Are Calculated

The Planet app combines data from our store with industry data and peer-reviewed models to estimate how much CO2 your shipments release into the environment. Because the Planet app makes sure that CO2 shipping emissions are removed entirely, all values that are used in the data models are rounded up.

Review the following table to learn more about the which data is used to determine shipping emissions:

Factor

Primary value

If primary value isn't available

Weight

Weight of the shipment

An average shipment weight

Distance

Distance traveled according to the tracking data

Straight-line distance between the origin and destination address, multiplied by an uncertainty factor of 1.5

Type of transportation

Truck or plane carbon emissions, determined by speed and distance

Truck emissions

To estimate your emissions, the Planet app uses order tracking data associated with the tracking number assigned to the shipment. If the tracking number isn’t available or the shipping carrier isn’t supported, then the Planet app multiplies the estimated emissions by an uncertainty factor of 1.5. The uncertainty factor helps make sure that all your emissions are removed. If any data is inconsistent or missing, then the Planet app uses a reasonable maximum value instead.

For example, suppose that you ship a package from Boston to New York. The straight-line distance is 305.94 km, but the shortest road route is around 350 km. If tracking data is available, then the Planet app uses the exact distance traveled.

However, if no tracking data is provided, then 305.94 km is used in the base calculation, and the resulting emissions would be multiplied by 1.5. This calculation accounts for variations in the route, such as distances traveled from post offices and distribution centers, and the route taken by the courier to deliver the package to your customer's door.

Considerations for using the Planet app

Review the following considerations for the Carbon Neutral Shipping Planet app:

  • The models and estimates aren’t exact, but the Planet app overestimates your emissions to make sure that they’re entirely removed. 
  • The Planet app removes only carbon (CO2) emissions that account for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation. Other emissions such as CH4, N2O, and GHG aren’t removed.
  • Orders that are shipped by sea transportation (we do not ship any orders by sea) don't generate the data required to accurately calculate emissions. Instead, industry-accepted alternative methods are used to calculate emissions.
  • The Planet app currently focuses on addressing emissions from shipping-related transportation.
