Incantation: ad agosto il nuovo album; guarda il video di ‘Concordat (The Pact) I’

Gli Incantation pubblicheranno il prossimo 25 agosto per Relapse Records il loro nuovo album intitolato “Unholy Deification”. Della nuova release è possibile guardare il video del primo singolo estratto: ‘Concordat (The Pact) I’. La band, lo ricordiamo, suonerà il prossimo 16 luglio allo Slaughter Club di Paderno Dugnano.

Death Metal icons INCANTATION prepare the masses for their new album, Unholy Deification, via Relapse Records out August 25.

Watch the “Concordat (The Pact) I” music video, directed by The C.O.I.N. HERE.

INCANTATION frontman John McEntee comments: “I’m not interested in playing it safe, I think other people feel that there are limits to what we do. However, I don’t see it that way. If it feels right, then it’s Incantation. The songs we write are an honest expression of ourselves. When people hear the new album, I hope they think, “Why are these guys so pissed off?!” Rage gives focus, which is why this album turned out the way it did.”

Edified over three-plus decades of experience, Unholy Deification is the group’s 13th full-length album. Validated by peers seasoned and new, INCANTATION are more vital than ever – the lineup, featuring founding guitarist/vocalist John McEntee, drummer Kyle Severn, bassist Chuck Sherwood, and guitarist Luke Shively, displays death metal know-how and the power of determination.

Lyrically, Unholy Deification originates with Sherwood. An avid reader and occult logician, the INCANTATION bassist wanted to capture a fully-realized concept of evolution through enlightenment. Expect thought-provoking, historically-derived intellection. That the mortal-to-deity narrative interacts with the merciless musical conflagration of hard-hitting tracks such as  “Concordat (The Pact) I,” “Homunculus (Spirit Made Flesh) IX,” and “Invocation (Chthonic Merge) X”. Make no mistake – the ferocious new album, featuring guests Jeff Beccera (Possessed), Henry Veggian (ex-Revenant), and Dan Vadim Von (Morbid Angel), is pure Death Metal.

INCANTATION’s sepulchral pandemonium is visually enhanced by award-winning artist and longstanding collaborator Eliran Kantor (Immolation, Kreator, Cavalera, and more.) The end result is an interpretation of Italian Renaissance masters, but thrust into INCANTATION’s cauldron of chromatic malice.
