INCANTATION unleashed their latest studio album, Unholy Deification, via Relapse Records on August 25th.

Edified over three-plus decades of experience, Unholy Deification is INCANTATION’s thirteenth full-length album. Validated by peers seasoned and new, INCANTATION is more vital than ever. The lineup, featuring founding guitarist/vocalist John McEntee, drummer Kyle Severn, bassist Chuck Sherwood, and guitarist Luke Shively, displays death metal know-how and the power of determination.

Lyrically, Unholy Deification originates with Sherwood. An avid reader and occult logician, the INCANTATIONbassist wanted to capture a fully realized concept of evolution through enlightenment. Expect thought-provoking, historically derived intellection. The mortal-to-deity narrative interacts with the merciless musical conflagration of hard-hitting tracks such as “Concordat (The Pact) I,” “Homunculus (Spirit Made Flesh) IX,” and “Invocation (Chthonic Merge) X”. Make no mistake – the ferocious new album, featuring guests Jeff Beccera (Possessed), Henry Veggian (ex-Revenant), and Dan Vadim Von (Morbid Angel), is pure death metal.

INCANTATION‘s sepulchral pandemonium is visually enhanced by award-winning artist and longstanding collaborator Eliran Kantor (Immolation, Kreator, Cavalera, and more.) The end result is an interpretation of Italian Renaissance masters but thrust into INCANTATION‘s cauldron of chromatic malice.

McEntee comments, “I’m not interested in playing it safe. I think other people feel that there are limits to what we do. However, I don’t see it that way. If it feels right, then it’s INCANTATION. The songs we write are an honest expression of ourselves. When people hear the new album, I hope they think, ‘Why are these guys so pissed off?!’ Rage gives focus, which is why this album turned out the way it did.”

One of the best death metal albums of 2023, easily.” – Metal Injection (10/10)

“Another twisted helping of subterranean old-school doomy death metal.” Decibel Magazine

“Twelve albums in, INCANTATION continue to lay the groundwork upon which the death metal genre as a whole can build upon. And despite their already stellar reputation, the relevance of this album and this band in 2023 is pretty damn impressive.” – MetalSucks

“Unholy Deification is a spirited, aggressive, angry death metal affair, an offering that shows why this band is rightly hailed as death metal royalty.” – Last Rites

“INCANTATION’s legacy as underground brutal legends has long been solidified, but Unholy Deification proves that they have more than enough creative and musical inspiration and passion to easily run with the bands they’ve influenced. Simply put, if you’re an INCANTATION aficionado, or a fan of any death metal that’s uncompromising, unsettling and with an experimental edge, then you cannot miss Unholy Deification.” – Wall Of Sound

“… a supremely impressive artistic achievement… a dissonant, warped occult death metal album made by fans of such musical fare, for fans of such musical fare… one hell of an experience, but certainly not one to step into lightly. Tread carefully.” – Metal Observer
