Incantation - Great Death and Doom metal!

"Incantation is one of the best death/doom bands around. Their riffs are heavy, the drumms are skilled, the vocalist kills, and you can actually hear the bass! Someone else put down about how the bass drum kick is off, im sorry bro, but i am a musician myself, i play drums guitar, bass, vocals ect..and i know for a fact that when the bass drum is not going as fast as the snare drum it is on purpose. Cause when he slows down on the snare drum, he goes fast on the bass drum again. This cd also had something you would never have suspected a death metal band to do. The last track on the cd is 2 songs put together and the total time is over 16 minutes long! I would expect that from a straight up doom or a black band but not a death band! If you want to hear some quality death metal that slows down at times to let your neck get a break from headbanging. But don't let the slowness fool ya, those slow riffs are pounding with evil and heaviness. I would suggest this to any death metal fan!"
The second great Incantation album

"This band is like the metal underground a paradox: brilliant when at top of form, and listless when not. By my reckoning, they've put out one genius work, "Onward to Golgotha," several excellent live albums and compilations including "Forsaken Mourning of Angelic Anguish," and one solidly excellent but not over-the-top-genre-redefining work, "Diabolical Conquest."I like this album. Every song has a collection of solid riffs and some artistic mechanism at its center, whether deliberate or not. Further, there is some experimentation with ambient dissonance on later tracks, and a tendency to seek a higher degree of discernible melody in the context of storytelling songs with consistent punch but not repetitive loops of emotional or musical statements. If you enjoy the roaring extremity of this band, purchase this after "Onward to Golgotha" and it will rapidly lay claim to space in your CD rack."
Pure Blasphemy, Pure Genius...

"There is nobody in this world today that wouldn't be a liar if they said they weren't upset over Craig Pillard's departure as Incantation's session-vocalist. I, for one, was terribly upset over the loss of such a landmark growl. Never in a million years would I expect someone to fill Craig's shoes and still like them. Well, Incantation has proven me to be somewhat pre-judgemental. To tell the absolute, honest-to-you-know-who truth, I like their new singer better. Hailing from Mexico, he has brought a new element to Incantation: DICTION. Yes, you can actually semi-understand a couple words as they are regurgitated from his esophagus. Now, I'm sure some of you are dissapointed at this, but don't fret! He is just as brutal, gutteral and vile as Craig. I am very pleased. As with the other Incantation albums, John McEntee's anti-melodic guitar playing is pure genious. This album is my pick as one of the top 5 heaviest albums of 1998 for sure. Fans of "old" Incantation, you will not be disappointed! BUY THIS NOW!!!"
