Additional Live Dates To Be Announced

Iconic Death Metal legion, INCANTATION, will continue to raze stages throughout North America in support of their Dirges Of Elysium full-length.

The following day, INCANTATION will head to Worcester, Massachusetts to play this year’s edition of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival at the Palladium. From there, the band will bring their audio malevolence to stages in Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, Syracuse and Buffalo. The onstage abrasions continue the following month when INCANTATION ravages their way through seven more cities before bringing their brutality to the Maryland Death Fest Pre-Party on May 20th in Baltimore.

In June, INCANTATION will summon the dead at the Farmageddon Festival FOA in Vancouver and in August the band will take part in the Wolves Of Apocalypse Festival in Denver.

INCANTATION released Dirges Of Elysium last year via Listenable Records. Crowned, “one of the most influential death metal bands of all time,” by Metal Injection, who further elaborated of the record, “With all the evil-sounding riffs, squealing pinch-harmonics and crushing dirges scattered throughout, this is the sound that made INCANTATION legends. This is some profoundly dark and creepy stuff,” the record continues to raise the brows of death metallers old and new. Sputnik Music dubbed Dirges Of Elysium, “a breath of fresh air for INCANTATION, and another fine addition to their discography, ” Metal Forces gushed, “It’s all ungodly but all so bloody brilliant, and with ‘Charnel Grounds’ smoldering from the stench of char-coaled flesh and the blustering bluster of ‘Dominant Ethos’ dragging us into the mud-clogged shredder that is ‘Elysium (Eternity Is Nigh),’ I hold up my severed stumps in surrender for another harangue of hate from one of death metal’s most criminally underrated bands,” while Exclaim added, “INCANTATION preserve their archetypal ominous atmosphere, while the production gives the band a more modern edge, making Dirges Of Elysium a consistent yet fresh release from the influential band.”

Comments the band in a collective statement: “The response to the Dirges Of Elysium album and tour has just been amazing! We still have a lot of touring left to go for this release. We are looking forward to seeing all you deathbangers on the road!”

Decibel Magazine Streaming New INCANTATION Album “Vanquish In Vengeance” In Full

Posted in Death Metal, death metal albums, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on November 20, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Decibel Magazine has posted an exclusive full album stream of Vanquish in Vengeance, the new album from Death Metal pioneers INCANTATION.

The stream comes one week before the album’s November 27th release date via Listenable Records and features a track-by-track commentary from (guitarist) Alex Bouks. Listen to Vanquish in Vengeance in its entirety at this location: http://www.decibelmagazine.com

INCANTATION’s long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s Primordial Domination features over 50 minutes of the band’s trademark dark and unholy Death Metal. Recorded at the infamous Mars Recording Compound with Engineer Bill Korecky and mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swano at Unisound studios, Vanquish in Vengeance deals with the numerous counts of genocide in the name of religion our society has witnessed over a millennia.

“Death metal excellence.” – Ghost Cult

“After two decades’ worth of albums and a positively legendary number of lineup changes, [INCANTATION] are still as vital as ever.” – Metal Sucks

“Vanquish in Vengeance sounds like it could have come out in 1991 and calls bullshit on the legions of poseurs who disguise a paucity of ideas under a blizzard of fret-wankery and offal. This is death metal for the ages, and the masters have once again returned to view their unholy kingdom.” This Is Not A Scene

INCANTATION – Reveal Artwork And Track Listing For: Vanquish in Vengeance

Posted in Death Metal, death metal albums, death metal bands, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on October 10, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

US Death Metal pioneers INCANTATION have revealed the cover art and track listing for their anticipated new album, Vanquish in Vengeance.

The long-awaited followup to 2006’s Primordial Domination, Vanquish in Vengeance carries a recurring lyrical theme that addresses the countless acts of genocide in the name of religion throughout our history.

Guitarist/vocalist John McEntee comments:

“The title track is about the massacre of Saxons in the town of Verdun in 782, called on by order of King Charlemagne. As an album title it has a different meaning to me. Vanquish in Vengeance symbolizes the long history of the band. We have fought many battles over the years to keep things going. We have always stayed true to our original vision and have never caved into trends. After a long wait between albums we are back with a vengeance with some of our darkest and heaviest material to date.”

Vanquish in Vengeance was recorded at Mars Studio with Bill Korecky and mixed by Dan Swano at Unisound Studios.

INCANTATION – Comments On Recent Tour; Reveals New Album Title

Posted in Death Metal, death metal bands, Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , on August 24, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

After a successful trek through Brazil with IMMOLATION and European summer festival campaign, Death Metal pioneers INCANTATION are back in the U.S. to wrap up work on their long-awaited eighth album. The band had this to say about the tour:

Guitarist/vocalist John McEntee:I would like to thank everyone on behalf of INCANTATION for making this festival run our most successful to date. To get the opportunity to play for so many diehard death metal fans was absolutely amazing. We are especially thankful to all our supporters for giving us a warm welcome at all the festivals, you guys were amazing and totally raging every day. Most of all we would like to thank Sam Inzerra [Mortician / Funerus] for doing a phenomenal job filling in for Kyle  on drums. Without you this run would probably not be able to happen.”

Bassist Chuck Sherwood:To the hoards of thousands that littered the fests of this past run. Old friends and new, brothers whom we shared a stage, and the  unmatched support of the staff of each fest respectively. It’s my hope that our performance reflected the metal rage that you gave us, Hails!

Live footage of INCANTATION performing at Motocultor Festival 2012 in France is seen below!

In other news, the band has revealed that their forthcoming release will be a concept album entitled Vanquish In Vengeance. Expect a November release via Listenable Records.

McEntee comments: “The title track is about the massacre of Saxons in the town of Verdun in 782, called on by order of King Charlemagne. As an album title it has a different meaning to me. Vanquish in Vengeance symbolizes the long history of the band. We have fought many battles over the years to keep things going. We have always stayed true to our original vision and have never caved into trends. After a long wait between albums we are back with a vengeance with some of our darkest and heaviest material to date.”
