“It took minimum five years to be 100% comfortable with the growling and being the front man” – Incantation’s John McEntee reveals his story as a metal vocalist 

Author Arto Mäenpää - 27.8.2023

Edified over three-plus decades of experience, “Unholy Deification” is the group’s 13th full-length album. Validated by peers seasoned and new, Incantation are 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 Incantation bassist wanted to capture a fully-realized concept of evolution through enlightenment. Expect thought-provoking, historically-derived intellection. That 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.
