Septic Order + Revolver Proudly Presents:
Incantation is an American death metal band that was formed by John McEntee and Paul Ledney ( Both Born December 1968 ) in 1989. They are one of the leaders in the New York City death metal scene along with fellow bands Suffocation, Mortician and Immolation, even though the band is currently located in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. To date the band has released ten full-length records, two live records, four EPs, two singles, three splits, one DVD, and three demos. Their most recent album Profane Nexus was released through Relapse Records in August 2017. The band have maintained a significant cult following and underground popularity since the 90s, and are considered to be highly influential on a range of later death metal bands including Dead Congregation, Grave Miasma, and Portal, who are often described as ‘cavernous death metal’. Incantation’s music frequently draws on anti-Christian, Satanic and occult themes, and the band is notable for mixing widely varied tempos into their music, often playing slow, down-tuned passages similar to those performed by death-doom bands like Autopsy.
The band has seen many lineup changes in their 29-year history. Guitarist/vocalist John McEntee is the sole original member, though drummer Kyle Severn has appeared on every studio album since Mortal Throne of Nazarene. Incantation first came to prominence with Onward to Golgotha and Mortal Throne of Nazarene, which features Craig Pillard on vocals. Following the release of the Forsaken Mourning of Angelic Anguish EP in 1997, Pillard departed Incantation and was replaced by Daniel Corchado of The Chasm. Corchado performed on one album, 1998’s Diabolical Conquest, before departing. Vocalist Mike Saez performed on the next two albums, The Infernal Storm (2000) and Blasphemy (2002). Beginning with Decimate Christendom, guitarist and frontman John McEntee took on vocal responsibilities, a role that he continues to the present.
Filthdigger was exhumed as a side project in 2012 by Nekromizör, due to lack of activity with other projects. After a while of demo recordings and lurking in the dungeons, Nekromizör decided to make Filthdigger as a full band. Violatör joined forces in the summer 2015 and Deströyer took charge of the sledgehammers by the fall 2015, and the massacre started…
By January 2016 Filthdigger recorded the infamous Demo 4 and the first gig was held at Pokalen in Oslo. A record deal was struck with No Posers Please! few days after and ‘Damned By The Living Dead’ was recorded and mixed in 4-5 rampaging days February 2016 in Endless Tinnitus Studios in Oslo. In the same month the slaughter was brought on Barrikaden in Oslo, and in April at Blitz, Oslo. Executiöner took his saw and joined the feast in May 2016. In the same month we took off to UFFA in Trondheim and at Pizdets in Oslo (Pizdets’ last gig ever, actually). The following months was filled with recordings and songwriting. The latest curse was given in the darkness of Maxi Taxi October 2016, and latest release, Demo Darkness, came to fluition in August 2017.
Filthdigger arose from the grave during the start of 2018, ready for a new killing spree..
