Starspawn was one of 2016's most hyped albums in the metal underground. In the midst of a death metal renaissance, Blood Incantation delivered a debut full-length that cashed in on the good reputation they gained after their 2015 EP, Interdimensional Exctinction. And while countless bands are looking back at the genre's roots nowadays, unfortunately most seem unable to move away from ultimately being characterized plain copycats; Blood Incantation, however, is not one of these bands.

Yeah basically that. It's good to the point of not being quite very good.

For a second I thought of a beat (like 4/4 beat)... and I was like what.

One of the last year's finest death metal albums. It's a shame it wasn't even nominated.

Well said I thought I was the only one who doesn't feel the hype.

You guys should worship Khthoniik Cerviiks instead of this

I thought it was just good as well. It does have some good moments but I still don't fully grasp why I should be all asdjkbf<jlfgajls about it.

Nah, this has a general "likeability" which for the most part, matches those of the other great dm albums released last year.

It is excellent too eventhough I prefer Howls of Ebb to it. But still doesn't make us enjoy this any less.

I mean the album is basically Morbid Angel's Blessed Are the Sick that's pumped to the brim with Timeghoul and shot towards the planet Nocturnus. I think the problem that Jooe and gang have with it is that, yes, its not an album that 'moves the genre forward' so to speak. Its rather an album that looks back at what made the old '90s Florida death metal records so great and rather than copying it verbatim like 80% of other death metal bands do, they added to it techniques learned over the genre's 25 year evolution. It feels modern but tickles that itch that the old records used to scratch. (Kinda getting deja vu with the Chthe'ilist thread over here).

That being said, I still think that Howls of Ebb and Vanhelgd as well as a few others released better death metal records this year. Hell, this album didn't even break into my top 20 (though to be fair it was a really good year hehe)

I love those guys just as much, and I can see why they should be getting more attention, but I still really like Blood Incantation. I do think it's very weird how popular they have become over the past year, but I do enjoy their music. Now excuse me while I go listen to Khthoniik Cerviiks again (I remember really liking them)
