U.S. death metal outfit Incantation are continuing work on their long-awaited new album, which will be released later this year through Ibex Moon Records, the label run by Incantation’s John McEntee.
Commented McEntee: “We are currently working on our new album, which we have about 80 percent finished. We have a lot more ideas to work on. I am very happy with the way things are coming together. Kyle [Severn, drums], Chuck [Sherwood, bass], Alex [Bouks] and I have killer songwriting chemistry and there is such a high quality of musicianship. This is an amazingly strong lineup that truly understands the essence of Incantation’s music.”
Added Bouks: “I have known John McEntee for about 23 years now. I am going back to a time when there was only a handful of us that played our dark extreme secret music. Things have changed since then and there is a much larger audience, but the hunger is still there for us to create the darkest extreme songs we can come up with. Incantation is one of the oldest bands who wave that dark sinister flag proudly.
“It is awesome after all these years to now be playing and writing together with John on the new material.
“I am more than confident that the new Incantation record is going to crush your skulls. In my opinion, this is one of the band’s darkest and most brutal collection of songs to date and it is my my honor and privilege to be working with two of death metal’s finest players in Kyle Severn and Chuck Sherwood.”
