Carcer City is a progressive metalcore band born in the Wirral in the northwest of England. They released their first studio material in 2009 called "The Life We Have Chosen." The band's style can roughly be described as an agressive, yet atmospheric take on both modern hardcore and metal music. Carcer City released The Road Journals in 2012. The album was given out for free through the band's website and facebook page, costing only a facebook post.
