Death Metal icons, INCANTATION, prepare the masses for their new album, “Unholy Deification”, out on August 25th via Relapse Records. A few days ago, the band has shared the second single, “Homunculus (Spirit Made Flesh) IX”, one month before the official album release. The lyric video also features scenes from INCANTATION’s live performances for which The C.O.I.N. team is responsible.
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. 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.
