Ragnarok will hit the road in Europe next month when they embark on a European tour supporting US death metal legends Incantation. Both bands are veterans of the metal scene and will be touring with their latest albums - Norwegian black metallers Ragnarok with their seventh-full length Malediction, and Incantation with their ninth full-length Vanquish In Vengeance. Their sixteen-date European tour is billed as the Crusade Of Vengeance Tour. The dates can be seen below.
Death metal cult Incantation, who returned with a new album last year six years after the release of Primordial Domination, have recently premiered online a brand new video. You can now enjoy below the video for "Invoked Infinity" off the band's newest release, Vanquish In Vengeance, and their first video in over a decade.
Vanquish In Vengeance, the newest death metal attack from Incantation, is currently available for streaming in full over here. The band will officially release their ninth album on November 27th through Listenable Records. This is Incantation's first full-length record since 2006's Primordial Domination. Check it out for yourself.
US death metallers Incantation have revealed the album artwork (courtesy of Worthless) and tracklist for their anticipated new release Vanquish In Vengeance. The long-awaited follow-up to 2006's Primordial Domination carries a recurring lyrical theme that addresses the countless acts of genocide in the name of religion throughout our history.
Death metallers Incantation have returned home after their Brazilian tour and European summer festivals. The band will now focus on their new album, which they have revealed will be titled Vanquish In Vengeance. It will be a conceptual album and the release date has been scheduled for November via Listenable Records.
US death metallers Incantation and Listenable Records' working relationship resulted in Decimate Christendom and Primordial Domination albums respectively released in 2004 and 2006. The band has now renewed this unholy bond for their upcoming album currently recorded in June and July 2012 for a tentative release date in winter 2012, six years after they released their last studio album.
US death metal act Incantation has been forced to cancel their appearances at this year's Stonehenge and Mass Deathstruction festivals. Incantation frontman John McEntee has issued the following statement, explaining the cancellations:
"It is with great regret we announce that we had to cancel our headlining festival appearance at the Stonehenge Fest in Holland and the Mass Deathstruction Fest in Belgium this weekend. Between us and our booking agent we did all we could to try to make the fest appearance happen, but only after many attempts we had to come to the conclusion that there was just no way to make it happen.
We want apologize both fest organizers for giving us this opportunity. we also want to thank all our supporters that were looking forward to our performances. we know that both promoters are very stand up people, and I'm sure both fest will be a great success."
"The upcoming European tour in September together with Incantation has unfortunately been cancelled. Incantation has been forced to cancel due to personal familiy issues, which leaves us with no headliner for the tour. Vomitory will still play a few of the planned shows (see dates below). We are of course very sorry for the cancellation, but the things that have happened are beyond anyone's control, which makes it impossible to fulfil this tour. We apologize to our fans and all the promotors involved. We are aiming for a full European tour next year after the release of our next album, which is planned for a May 2009 release."
Vomitory will still play these shows just as planned:
A track from the album, "Lead to Desolation," is posted on the band and label's official and MySpace sites. The song is from the long-standing death metal outfit's upcoming album, "Primordial Domination", due on September 5 via Ibex Moon Records.
The record - the band's seventh - sticks to Incantation's tried and true recipe for brutal death metal, complemented with more leads and a crushing production.
"We feel very strong about the new material," said guitar/vocalist/founding member John McEntee. "We never seem to run out of unholy dark metal movements."
Incantation frontman John McEntee has posted the following message on the band's official website:
"We have just returned from Europe and the Harvest Festival's with Nile, Unleashed, Pungent Stench, Behemoth and Belphegor. The Festival tour was a great success, the shows were some of the best we have ever done in Europe. All the bands and crew did a fantastic job every night, it was a great experience for us. We want to thank Metallysee, World management, Listenable and everyone else involved that made the tour a great experience. Also many hails go out to all the metal heads that came out and showed their support every night!!!"
Incantation recorded a live show in Paris for possible future bonus material. They will also start working on a new album to be recorded in Spring 2006.
