Incantation releasing a new album (stream a track)

by Ian Chainey

Incantation in Columbus, Ohio, 2013 (more by Matt Mohr)

Old school death metal standbys, and noted mustache aficionados, Incantation have unleashed the first sonic evidence of their new album Dirges of Elysium, which will be available in the US through Listenable Records on June 24. The song arrives at the perfect hour, just as metalheads are underlining acts to catch at Maryland Deathfest. Incantation will be playing on Friday, May 23 at Rams Head Live. See the rest of the set times here.

In a career spanning 25 years, Incantation has become an American death metal institution, earning their share of copycats in the way re-thrash aims for the Big 4 and bands with buzzsaw guitar tones go for Entombed or Grave. “Carrion Prophecy” continues their legacy, crushing cochleas with killer grooves, slowmo crawls, and amps caked in murky filth. Dirges of Elysium will be the trio’s 10th studio album and first since 2012’s Vanquish in Vengeance.

Growl along with John McEntee below and get pumped for MDF with a fan video of Incantation’s 2010 MDF appearance. Black Sabbath cover! Dio alert!
