INCANTATION 25 år - feirer med vinylutgivelse

Av Rune Grande


Det amerikanske death metal bandet INCANTATION feirer sitt 25 års jubileum med en limitert LP kalt "XXV - Quarter Century of Blasphemy". 






INCANTATION er et amerikansk death metal band som ble dannet av gitarist John McEntee og trommis Paul Ledney tilbake i 1989. Til tross for at bandet har flyttet til Pennsylvania, sees det på som et av de ledende i death metal scenen i New York sammen med band som Suffocation og Immolation. INCANTATION er velkjente for å variere tempoet i låtene sine og har gjerne lengre doom-aktige langsomme partier.

INCANTATION feirer i år 25 år og har hatt stor gjennomtrekk i lineupen. John McEntee er eneste gjenværende originalmedlem. Han tok over som bandet vokalist i 2004. INCANTATION er kjent for å være det death metal bandet i verden som har hatt flest faste og livemedlemmer. En kjapp opptelling fra diverse nettsider forteller oss at minst 17 personer har vært innom bandet som faste medlemmer mens i livedelen er det minst 27 personer, og flere av dem har tatt flere perioder. Og medregnet dagens besetning, begynner antall bandmedlemmer å nærme seg 50.


Dagens lineup består av:

John McEntee - gitar, vokal
Kyle Severn - trommer
Chuck Sherwood - bass
Sonny Lombardozzi - gitar

INCANTATION: A megalithic entity of the death metal underground, whose New York scene association, alongside other pioneers of the genre, heads into a new/old chapter with their first-ever release chronicling 25 years on this forboding, doomed planet.
Ever-precise to their origins, Incantation has witnessed, and experienced, the ebb and flow of a scene which they helped create. With ten studio albums under their bullet-adorned belts (which includes numerous videos, and even a TV commercial), those early, primeval years saw a slew of releases, in various forms, that are as relevant today as the day they were released. In that time, the band has accrued many accolades, including Hall Of Fame designations, Top 10 lists, and countless praises and honors of their discography through various publications, websites, and radio programs. As if all this weren't brutal enough, Incantation has crushed many venues, festivals, and clubs worldwide with their rabid performance. From North, Central and South America, Europe, Scandinavia, Australia, and Japan - the entire world has voluntarily succumbed to the vehement inferno that swept clean their lands, leaving nothing but molten ash. 
Through it all, the band has amassed an army of supporters and fans who have willingly - eagerly - endured a quarter century of blashemy. As testament to this, the band decided it was high time to give something back to the Incantation legions worldwide. This very special 12" gatefold vinyl release draws form a robust collection of work - dawn to the present. Included are select live songs, a brand new track, and the re-recording of three classic songs that combine to represent a band unafraid to revisit the demons of old.
