The early years of American death metal - in all its palm muted, tremolo picked, madness-inspired pacing - forever changed the landscape of heavy music. It was an era that produced many now-classic releases from such heavyweights as Cannibal Corpse, Death, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Deicide, Obituary, Autopsy, among many others
Now in 2020, INCANTATION return with their highly anticipated new album, Sect of Vile Divinities. True to form, Sect of Vile Divinities sees the legendary band adhering to the ways of the old school, unleashing twisted, mangled, and utterly disgusting Death Metal once again. A pitch-black mix of unrelenting Death Metal and imposing Funeral Doom, each track on Sect of Vile Divinities is a dirge dedicated to different ancient evils across various cultures. At a point where the world's most vile converge, tracks such as "Propriation" see the band's driving riffs and pummeling drums crush the very foundations of religious zealotry, while standouts such as "Entrails of the Hag Queen" and "Fury's Manifesto" champion no-frills Death Metal in its purest form.
Three decades of Death Metal still the funeral procession carries on. With Sect of Vile Divinities, INCANTATION hail a return to form for the genre, and release one of 2020's most blasphemous and unforgiving titles.
