INCANTATION have premiered a music video for their song “Fury’s Manifesto,” which comes off their new album “Sect Of Vile Divinities.” The record will drop via Relapse on August 21st. The band commented of the video, which was directed by Daily Grind Productions:
“We present another offering unleashed from ‘Sect of Vile Divinities‘, aptly named ‘Fury’s Manifesto‘. A more crushing choice from the album to express blasphemy towards religious ethics and its failure to the very evil that the faiths themselves created.”
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.
While the leaders and innovators of American death metal valiantly fortified their walls against the onslaught of the flannel and Doc Martin clad of that time, a host of new bands sprung up nationwide – all eager to defend and descant the blasphemous gospels laid down by their forebears. Spawned deep within this subterranean realm of unsanctity came the groundbreaking, Relapse Records-released Onward To Golgotha – a musical scripture of spine-chilling and inhuman sounds by the now-legendary INCANTATION. A bleak and suffocating trip through a doom-infused purgatory, Golgotha was the first of its kind.
With over a quarter-century under their bullet-adorned belts, INCANTATION main-man John McEntee, and longtime drummer Kyle Severn, have proven that age is certainly not a predetermining factor as it relates to brutality and longevity. Throughout these formative years, INCANTATION continued to spread their demonic reign, releasing three more unholy testaments with Relapse including: Diabolical Conquest (1998), Mortal Throne of Nazarene (1994) and The Infernal Storm (2000). The next decade-plus saw the band expand their blasphemous empire, releasing several full-lengths with notable metal-centric labels Candlelight and Listenable Records.
