Biography

There are 2 bands with the artist name Incantation.

1) A Death Metal band from New York City.

Incantation is a band from New York, USA formed by John McEntee and Paul Ledney in 1989.

They are one of the leaders in the New York death metal scene along with fellow bands Suffocation and Immolation, even though the band is currently located in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Incantation was one of Relapse Records’ first signings, releasing their initial seven inches and a handful of albums with them.

The band has seen many lineup changes in their eighteen year history and guitarist John McEntee is the sole original member.

The band is noteable for mixing widely varied tempos into their music, often playing slow, down-tuned passages similar to those performed by other death-doom bands like Autopsy, Winter, and Disembowelment.

2) A Tribal Flute Band.

Incantation is also a Tribal Flute Band (Musical Group)

The band are a musical group playing traditional tribal and other South American music. The band started in 1981 from a pool of musicians who were, at the time, playing all kinds of different types of music for the (then) Ballet Rambert, based in London. A new ballet was choreographed (called “Ghost Dances”) about political oppression in South America, to the music of Inti-Illimani, the exiled Chilean folk group.

    yes they're "collector / artist proof" variant editions outside from the standard run of 50 (grey) colored posters that I was asked to print FOR Incantation and FOR the show & all the bands that played on that date of the tour.

    God damn, the new album is killer. I love the Norse mythology lyrics in "From a Glaciate Womb", and upon reading those I realized the cover art is actually a depiction of what they are singing about in that song, rather than something from Greek mythology as I just assumed from the title of the album. Cool to see them touching upon Pagan themes whilst still blaspheming the bastard son of heaven!

    My second favorite death metal band, only top by Immolation. Craig Pillard's vocals on first two albums, are the most sickest vocals ever!!
