After a successful string of US dates, death metal legends INCANTATION are set to take their newest masterpiece, Vanquish in Vengeance, to Europe for appearances in Paris, Switzerland and at the Neurotic Death Fest in Holland. Before heading across the pond, INCANTATION will make a stop in Miami, FL for a night of decimation with Hibernus Mortis, Ulcer and Masticator. The band issued the following statement regarding their recent live activities,
"While the 'old world' awaits us in the near future, here stateside was a furious and ruthless number of shows. Ohio, Texas and New York mark the first live performances for our new Vanquish in Vengeance album.
The staff of the Shrunken Head in Columbus made things go smoothly while the sick as fuck bands we had the pleasure of jamming with made it all the more awesome. Many hails to Soulless and The Council Beneath the Sea for their help and absolutely shredding. And of course everyone who attended the slaughter that night! Next was Houston to headline the Masters of Death fest. Been many years since the bands' return. The energy was unreal when the stage was pummeled by the likes of our brothers in Master, HOD, La Sanche, and Nodens. Thanks and greetings to all our old friends and the help they provided that made the show a true honor to be part of. Lastly was a return to NY at the St. Vitus club in Brooklyn. Few words can capture what it means to see a metal bar such as theirs overflowing with metal heathens. Fuckin' sick! So, why not a sold out show with the likes of such bands as Evoken, Derketa, and Funerus. If it weren't for their support a lot would not have been possible. Brutal crowd, great staff and pure death metal!
With only a few weeks away we can no longer
hold back our anticipation. Our crusade of blackened death
for the Vanquish in Vengeance album will now poison the shores
of Europe once again. A few battles planed in France, Switzerland
with our brothers in Supreme Lord! Then back to Tilburg, Holland
for the Neurotic Deathfest! With so many hails in waiting
to all of whom we'll reunite, and the greetings in infernal
brotherhood to those whom we shall meet.
The abyss beckons us to battle! This time it's to the south, to Miami. We're really anxious to bring our 'Vengeance' to an area we've not returned to in many years. Hails to Hibernus Mortis, Ulcer and Masticator who will share in our assault. Rally to the blasphemy of unholy old school death metal, we look forward to seeing you heathens there. You've been warned!"

Decibel Magazine and legendary death metal
act INCANTATION have joined forces to premier the video for
"Invoked Infinity" off the band's newest release, Vanquish
The band's highly-anticipated follow up to 2006's Primordial Domination features over 50 minutes of the band's trademark dark and unholy death metal. Recorded at the infamous Mars Recording Compound with Engineer Bill Korecky and mixed and mastered by the legendary Dan Swano at Unisound studios, Vanquish in Vengeance deals with the numerous counts of genocide in the name of religion our society has witnessed over a millennia.
"Invoked Infinity" is INCANTATION's first video in over a decade and is now playing
November 28 2012
Fall has been kind to the mighty Incantation. They released their boss new album Vanquish In Vengeance (read more about the creation of the album in our new issue). And they charted like a Britney Spears single in our top 100 death metal albums of all time. One of the reasons they are shredding so hard of late is the work of second guitarist Alex Bouks, formerly of Goreaphobia. The dude shreds so hard you can’t even see his face in all of these live photos. Please welcome Mr. Bouks to the Shredder’s Studio.

Decibel Magazine has posted an exclusive full

"As an album title, it has a different meaning to me. 'Vanquish In Vengeance' symbolizes the long history of the band. We have fought many battles over the years to keep things going. We have always stayed true to our original vision and have never caved into trends. After a long wait between albums we are back with a vengeance with some of our darkest and heaviest material to date."

For their contribution to Decibel, INCANTATION
founder John McEntee dug into his vault and pulled up the
tune "Degeneration" off the self-titled 1989 demo from his
pre-INCANTATION tech-thrash band REVENANT.
INCANTATION gave the song a proper reworking and the deathed-up, newly recorded version of the song will appear inside the December 2012 issue of Decibel. Non-subscribers have until 9 a.m. on Wednesday, October 10 to visit DecibelMagazine.com to sign up in time to receive the disc.

the New York death metal scene along with SUFFOCATION, IMMOLATION
INCANTATION and Listenable Records' working relationship resulted in "Decimate Christendom" (2004) and "Primordial Domination" (2006) albums. The band has now renewed this unholy bond for their upcoming CD, currently being recorded for a tentative winter release.

It'll be great to work with Bill Korecky again. Also we are looking forward to having Dan Swanö do the mixing and mastering it. I'm sure it will sound sick!"
