Incantation/Vanquish In Vengeance/Listenable Records/2012 CD Review


  Incantation  are  a  band  from  Ohio  that  has  been  around  for  a  long  time  and  has  been  featured  before  in t his  zine  with  a  musical  style  that  combines  dark  and  blasphemous  death  metal  with  doom  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Vanquish  In  Vengeance"  which  was  released  by  Listenable  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  a  good  amount  of  brutal  sounding  blast  beats  being thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  is  coming  out  of  the  guitars  and  at  times  they h ave  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

   Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combines  the  darkest  and  heaviest  elements  of  death  metal  with  doom  metal  along  with  a  good  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  being  thrown  into  the  riffing,  while the  lead  guitars  are  very  dark  sounding  death  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals are  mostly  deep  death  metal  growls  with  some  high  pitched  screams  being  thrown  into  the  music  at  times  in  addition  there  is  a  brief  spoken  word  part  being  utilized  on  the  last  song,  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  numerous  genocides  committed  in  the  name  of  religion,  as  for  the  production  it has  a  very  dark,  heavy,  strong,  powerful  and  professional  sound  to  it  and  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another great  recording  from  Incantation  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of t his b and,  you  should  enjoy t his  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Invoked  Infinity"  "The  Hellions  Genesis"  "Transcend  Into  Absolute  Dissolution"  and  "Legion  Of  Dis".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
