While the feel of the music is undeniably old school, there is nothing overly derivative or repetitive / bland to be found here. There are some parts reminiscent of Bolt Thrower that work marvellously with Incantation’s doomy Death Metal, but never feel ripped off. This is a sonic hailstorm of malevolent, spectral and furiously aggressive material that is unhinged yet melodious. Thrashing through a medley of varied, expansive and restlessly changing styles, the impeccably massive artillery dropped shows just how wide the scope of these musicians abilities are. The odiously crafted atmospherics and brutal malice entwine you in the enticing spew of true Death Metal brilliance with no option for escape. Powerful stuff indeed.
As predicted, Incantation have offered another imposing mammoth of visceral, cavernous and expansive Death Metal delights. Pungent concoctions of hostility and phantasmal soundscapes are what we are gifted from this titanic band, with frenzied yet meditative vitriol. Naturally, this is a must listen for all Death Metal lovers."
