Arizona groove metal outfit INCITE returns with new songs up their sleeves and have recently signed a contract with Atomic Fire Records. Following five relentless albums and an insane touring schedule under their belts, Richie Cavalera and his gang of misfits gear up for Wake Up Dead, set for release on March 25th. This infectious collection of raucous new tracks and remastered gems from their fifteen-plus year career proves once again that INCITE are indeed the missing link between Machine Head and Lamb Of God.

On their five albums The Slaughter (2009), All Out War (2012), Up In Hell (2014), Oppression (2016), and Built To Destroy (2019), INCITE cemented their reputation as one of America’s leading groove armadas, heavily hitting home with their blend of old-school thrash majesty, frantic aggression, melody, skill, and bravado. What began as a band of greenhorns driving around the States in a shitty van, thrashing small clubs, has evolved into a band with the potential, the passion, and the power to become one of metal’s biggest acts.

Written in several bouts of feverish inspiration during last year’s pandemic chaos, Wake Up Dead delivers the goods in the most relentless way. With recording duties again handled by legendary producer Steve Evetts (who Richie Cavalera notes is, “the only guy who can simultaneously record The Cure and Suicide Silence and pull it off”) in Omen Room Studios just outside Los Angeles, here’s a band that couldn’t be more comfortable with the place they’re in right now.

Kicking off the proceedings with the open fire that is “Fuck With Me (Wake Up Dead),” the record’s menacing second track, “War Soup,” will make a lasting impression on international heavy metal troops standing as the first INCITE song ever to feature the vocals of both Richie and his step-father Max Cavalera, a historical gathering of heavy metal generations.

Comments Richie Cavalera, “Metalheads, we’ve held back this beast long enough! It’s time! We’ve reworked the team, we’ve added more heavy metal, and couldn’t be more fired up! Our new album Wake Up Dead will drop with MinusHead/Atomic Fire Records for the first time ever! This album is exactly what the metal world needs to kick off 2022 heavy AF!”

Atomic Fire Records CEO and founder Markus Wosgien adds, “When Dez Fafara, singer of DevilDriver and manager of acts like Cradle Of Filth, Jinjer, and 8 Kalacas, introduced us the new material of INCITE, we were simply blown away. Those five new tracks simply were the shit! Each track was super catchy, straightforward, and massively brutal and aggressive. I couldn’t believe that I missed this incredible band over all these years and had a new mission: The metal world needs to know about INCITE and how great they are. So, the idea starts to grow to not only do an EP, but also add the best of their old tracks, remaster them, and demonstrate what INCITE is about. This new release is one of the best modern thrash metal releases of all time. This is both fresh, unique, and still somehow old-school as fuck. Fronted by Richie Cavalera, this band has an amazing singer with a serious history and well known parents. Check them out; you all will love them.”

Spain’s SEPULCRHAL Releasing “From Beyond The Burial Mound” On Soulseller Records in February

Bilbao (ES) – Soulseller Records proudly presents From Beyond The Burial Mound, the full-length debut album from Spanish death metal maggots SEPULCHRAL! The album will be released February 25 on CD, vinyl LP, and digital formats.

The album’s first single, “Harbor of Drifting Souls,” is available on all digital platforms, including youtu.be/dLyjBrFb3gw.

SEPULCHRAL crawled out of the coffin when main composer Dusk wanted to release some old school death metal in the vein hof the old European bands. He composed four songs in 2015, but it was not until 2016 that he and the guitarist Wolf recorded a demo with two of those tracks called Rest In Sepulchral Darkness. After the nice reception the duo recorded a second demo the following year, Dust Of The Rotting Dead, but this time accompanied by new member Gaueko, who was in charge of the guitars and some vocals.

In 2018, Wolf left the band, and Dusk and Gaueko continued with the recording of an EP (Graveyard Repugnance) that they released in 2019. In 2020 Dusk recruited a new member to take care of the guitars and drums, leaving Gaueko in charge of vocals only.

Now, SEPULCHRAL arise from the tomb with their first full-length album, packed with catchy, putrid, crusty death metal that will make you jump from your coffin! From Beyond The Burial Mound was recorded by the band members themselves, mixed and mastered by Gorka Pérez, and features cover art by Jaime P.S.

Track Listing:

  1. The Funerary Dirge
  2. Harbor of Drifting Souls
  3. Ceremony of Putrefaction
  4. Sepulchral Fumes
  5. Cursed Epitaph
  6. Coffin Miasma
  7. Tombstone Thrower
  8. Caravan of Putrid Flesh
  9. Bastards from the Grave
  10. Blood Freak (Necrophagia Cover)
  11. Eyes Like Burning Catacombs

Line-up:

Dusk – Bass/Vocals
Gaueko – Vocals
Gorka – Guitars/Drums
