Incantation
Incantation
Without a doubt one of the most important bands ever to emerge in the world of extreme music, INCANTATION has set the standard for USDM and is often credited as a pioneer in the genre. For over two decades, INCANTATION has stood out as one of the most uncompromising forces in metal with their blasphemous and bone-crushing doom-tinged brand of death. Responsible for classics like Onward to Golgotha and Diabolical Conquest, INCANTATION's legacy speaks for itself.

Throughout their illustrious career, INCANTATION has become an infamous death metal institution and a pillar of the international underground metal scene. The staggering combination of the band's ominous sound, vicious style, incredible work ethic and unwavering dedication has left an indelible mark unmatched by all except the most legendary of their peers. Arguably metal's hardest working band, INCANTATION has ventured forth like conquering crusaders, converting thousands of new fans time after time. From Canada to Colombia, Argentina to Europe, Central America to Australia and the States, INCANTATION has endeavored to reach every corner of the world. Additionally, they have given such other prestigious acts as Nile, Decapitated, Krisiun, Enslaved, and Kataklsym their first opportunities to tour on U.S. soil.

The INCANTATION of today sees the band stronger than ever with a lineup comprised of founder/guitarist/vocalist John McEntee, longtime drummer Kyle Severn, guitarist Alex Bouks [Goreaphobia] and bassist Chuck Sherwood [Bloodstorm]. The combined efforts of all four members have resulted in an album that will undoubtedly go down as among the best in the band's history. Vanquish in Vengeance, INCANTATION's long-awaited follow up to 2006's Primordial Decimation, 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.

Sherwood elaborates on the album's lyrical content, "The concept of our world so enslaved by monotheistic dogma that only a rebirth, with nothing but distain for the previous, would be tolerated. The lyrical content is the vehicle of this ideology from modern to ancient history combined with the occult/pagan views and the rage we as a band hold for those religions and their followers who'd refuse to acknowledge their own failure. Let this vortex we offer permeate and enlighten or shun and obliterate."

While few artists leave an outstanding mark upon the music world, INCANTATION has built a legacy that will extend past their years. Their shadow has been cast forever over the genre, and we are eternally grateful.

FaithXtractor
FaithXtractor
FAITHXTRACTOR was spawned by Ash Thomas with the sole intention of playing savage Death Metal as an assault on the pathetic meat puppet human race. Now, nearly 7 years later, with the "old school death metal" tag being consumed, shat out, & spewed about repeatedly like every other tired labeling scheme, the FAITHXTRACTOR would like to tell you to "CAST YOUR ASSUMPTIONS ASIDE...SHUT THE FUCK UP & HEAD BANG!" This musical entity was created as an outlet to voice thoughts & feelings on this ever crumbling existence, to channel our life-philosophy, & to praise the Metal essence that is inherently in our veins. Plain & simple...
HISTORY:
After forging FAITHXTRACTOR's concept in December 2005, 2 songs were written & recorded during January of 2006. The recording was simply titled "Demo #1 2006" & was spread in very small quantities. A new upstart label called Aphotic Records, upon hearing the demo, offered to release a full length album once FAITHXTRACTOR had completed the material. More hymns of death & disdain were written throughout 2006, & Ash enlisted the help of his trusted brother Marquis Thomas to aid in the process. Things fell into place quickly & the studio was entered in early 2007 to record "Razing the World of Myth". The recording came out just as planned containing 13 songs of blunt, raw, memorable, pissed off Death Metal Hell. The album was officially released in February of 2008, & was received very well by fans & freaks of the genre. Prior to the release of "Razing...", 2 more new tracks were recorded in July of 2007 for a split 12" LP with Cleveland's CRUCIFIED MORTALS. This release entitled "Project Trauma" was issued through HELL HEADBANGERS & REAPER METAL RECORDS. In addition to the 2 exclusive songs, the split included the "Demo #1 2006" tracks making them available to a wider audience.

Since FAITHXTRACTOR is an impulsive, inspired, non-rehearsing & non-live performing act, 2009-2010 saw some considerable down time due to outside obligations. Despite these situations, ideas are always flowing be it a riff here &/or song title there. With an upgrade in studio/recording equipment, Ash pushed out 3 new FAITHXTRACTOR songs in very early 2011 & released a very limited demo called "Promo 2011". These songs would surface again on the now completed 2nd full length album entitled "The Great Shadow Infiltrator". This new 11 song monster holds true to the vibe set forth on the previous releases while plunging ever further into heavily darkened territory. With a strong focus on real life horrors, infectious riffs, & haunting arrangements, "The Great Shadow Infiltrator" will crush the weak as the FAITHXTRACTOR poisons the soul for the better. "The Great Shadow Infiltrator" will be released in 2013 through DEATHGASM RECORDS.
