I began my journey as CARNAGE in 2008 and collectively, with the assistance of my loyal followers, have been capable of obtain a few of my wildest desires. From working with music icons like Avicii, Drake, Swedish House Mafia, MIGØS, Tïesto, Young Thug, The Martinez Brothers, and Kanye West to promoting out golf equipment, theaters, arenas, stadiums, and festivals all over the world, all I can say is — THANK YOU — it really means the world.

ASOC Family, you imply all the pieces to me. I’d be nothing with out my followers, I cant describe what number of of you’ve touched my soul and altered my life, you’re what stored me going these previous 14 years. ASOC Family will dwell on perpetually.

Unfortunately all good issues should come to an finish, however that doesn’t imply we are able to’t exit in fashion. If CARNAGE goes to die there have to be — A Grand Finale.
