Pennsylvania's Incantation have returned with a new recording that continues the dark doom/death metal style of previous releases and this is a review of t heir 2017 album "Profane Nexus" which was released by Relapse Records.
A very dark and melodic sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking while t he lyrics are mostly deep death metal growls and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
A great amount of doom elements can be heard in the slower sections of the songs and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while t he solos and leads remain very true to a dark style of death metal and as the album progresses clean playing can also he heard briefly and they also bring in a brief ritualistic instrumental before returning back to a heavier direction.
Incantation creates another recording that remains true to the doom/death metal style of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Incantation and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Muse" "The Horns Of Gefrin" "Xipe Totec" and "Ancients Arise". 8 out of 10.
