The Infernal Storm (Relapse Records)
By: Jeb Branin
INCANTATION are one of only a small handful of low tuned death mongers leftover from the early days of the scene who not only have remained steadfast and true to the sound that launched their career but have also managed to find a way to keep everything they do interesting and potent within the confines of what is seemingly a narrow genre. Their mix of extreme fasts and extreme slows gives their sound all kinds of added dimension. They constantly keep the listener off guard with unexpected change-ups and creative riffing. Their lyrical topics and images have always been a bit stale but it has never lessened their appeal or compromised their musical impact. Many bands have tried to accomplish the superiority INCANTATION seemingly achieves with ease but almost none have succeeded. INCANTATION don't have to strive to be great, it is simply their nature.
