pablolopezf Pure & great death metal, enjoy ;) Favorite track: Omens to the Altar of Onyx.
Fabiandemonic thumbnail
Fabiandemonic Many try but many fail. No one can top the brutality of this band. One of the heaviest bands to survive the time. Hail the GOAT!! Favorite track: Rites of the Locust.
zirtonic thumbnail
zirtonic Probably the weakest Incantation album of the decade, but that isn't saying much when you consider the bands consistency. There's no major missteps thankfully, it's just a bit more pedestrian than the trudging pace of "Dirges" and the renewed barbarity found in "Vengeance." Maybe it ends up serving as a stopgap so the band can come out swinging in the '20s... Favorite track: Lus Sepulcri.

Muse 05:11
Commands of the mind must be Unnumbered spirits will see Each holds sway over thee The vessel only yearns to see But we plant the very seed Which guides to deceive No banishment can cure The muse's nature so pure Behind his eyes they know Your attempts to deny show Ecstasy in every life you take Driven by our ethereal hate Again ... Consume the ignorant Regret ... Speeds your descent Rebirth through your shell No longer a denizen of hell
Voracious upsurge A swarm from Mecca converge Millions in gregarization Infectious degradation Howling in stridulation Prayers insight infibulation Moulting their humanity Under burqas lies barbarity Desert prophet's creations of clay Infidels suffer their plague Iridescent wings flutter Technology torn asunder Gestate the wasps of Iblis Fire-born from the abyss Pride for the father of Djinns (Decapitate) their souls from within
I reside within, under fathomless silence Event horizon of gathered darkness Their daggers, slice through thought, subconscious This chamber, I'm confined, cerebral Secretion cloaked interior, where life is inferior Luminous races palms, scorn the sky Homage to those who never die Subconscious ripped wide under spell Unborn larvae, now in hand, rose and fell Consumed through, emotionless maws Cilium flow, coursing......... enthralled Clenching their, serpentine dance Heaved from me, in trance Born-less reincarnation Deathless transmigration Now you are beckoned through this veil Shared suffering through the lidless eye I hail
Flame's adoration deep underfoot Staves of the Volur crusted in soot Bones that mutter their legacy Obscure barrow smite the heavenly Conscript of ancient ways despite their demise Crystal eyes, hold despise, in hundreds that arise Virility and rage, from the stone and iron age Earthen bell, burial cage, in blood they assuage Restless warriors upsurge, war drums pace their trudge Wretched soil drinks the carnage Resurrection tolls, god has no control Deathless and divine Gododdin soul (This) foul bishop who defiled at Glen Feel the rage of heathens return once again The great hall echoes our revelry through time Shadow of the great goat's horns so sublime Gefrin is alive, the old gods forever thrive Lavish in death from the Henge to their hive Birthright reborn, a legacy restored Death to your flock, by Gefrin's ancient horde
Desire for what was Scars are all that howl the pain Rage, replace, my bereavement Through the flesh, I shift between the night world and void Imprisoned with us, you now understand our plight To savor suffering, (and) turn from light
Xipe Totec 01:01
Cloaked in a veneer of death The defeated's putrescence Drawn in every breath The third month approaches The red smoking mirror encroaches Twenty dawns arise! By bone wand baptize Through a decaying face Gaze into a living god’s eyes Twenty suns set! Shed the mantle with no lament Your flesh gives us power Our enemies failure, (their) final regret Godly existence behind decay The night drinker
Lus Sepulcri 04:25
Soil that surrounds Fester underground Tombs so profound Shrouds fall unbound Reduced to dust Epitaphs carved Overgrowth barbed To live with filth by choice we don't To die with filth by right we won't My work is to dispose But never bury those Faithful decompose I will appose Bloodline died Generations piled Side by side To live with filth by choice we don't To die with filth by right we won't Take your divinity (elsewhere) Silent (in your) empty stare Wasteful life the holy lied For I interred when you died I won't cremate Vermin permeate Apostate To live with filth by choice we don't To die with filth by right we won't
Before the universe and physical law Time did not exist nor the human flaw Poisonous beasts and your vanity Only virtue of interest is dependency My scorn forces submission to fate Domestic or savage feel my hate Crowned bovine Shackled swine Equal in ash, mortal trash I am your Messiah, I am the world’s cure Hunting the earthly cattle, unholy savior Dreamt into existence by theologian strife Collapse to dust for the foul usury of life Bestiaries of humanity Guardian of rage binds you to shame I was your Messiah, at last I cured this world Hunted the earthly cattle, destiny unfurled
Life illuminates Avernus Feast for the lions of Venus Shallows hold dead offerings Crimson descends on harpy wings Bespattered blood, on black stone Savaged the sentry has fallen Sated beast had left him rotten Stones shower as it was foretold Visions from the basin of gold Branched tongue, Juno is ablaze Raptures fire, in Jupiter’s gaze Satyr hooves pound with delight Foul seed drowns in fright These omens, lead to its return Now your god, will forever...burn
Descending peaks of Kur Abode of breathless, ancient lord Realm beneath, unexplored Fall.... Engulfing void, her madness is might Blood creator saves, us from finite Guide our path.... Lead with tablets of destiny Forge ahead, in wondrous cruelty Miscreation erodes Now vomit the inferno.... Scales glimmer, wings bellow Delirium, fury, overthrow Mid absu, and earth Tiamat’s glory, prophesized Sanctified.... Old ones, awake arise Kingu's behest, agonized War cry, thunderous Prophet, flock, purified


Legendary death metal pioneers INCANTATION triumphantly return to their original label Relapse Records to vomit forth another unholy offering of godless abominations on Profane Nexus, their formidable 10th full-length album. Embodying 11 blasphemous tracks of sacrilegious conquests, crushing dirges, and vile riffing, Profane Nexus is an obliteratingly heavy execution of disgusting death metal that further solidifies INCANTATION as one of extreme music's most influential and consistently hailed artists of the past 30 years. Recorded at the band's own Incantation Studios in Johnstown, PA and mixed/mastered by Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Asphyx, Dark Funeral), Profane Nexus is perhaps the finest template of INCANTATION’s masterful synthesis of pummeling death metal and disemboweling funeral doom ever to be unleashed during their harrowing, 28-year reign.

Incantation Johnstown, Pennsylvania

INCANTATION is set to prove - once again - that their vertigo-inducing, ever-spiraling blackened mass of death metal malevolence is as expansive, infinite and bleak as the coldest, darkest reaches of our universe. At the pinnacle of their storied career, the guys have engineered a brand new weapon of anti-biblical proportions. ... more
