Pennsylvania death metallers Incantation have released a 360-degree video for their song “Rites of The Locust.”

“Rites of The Locust” comes off  the band’s upcoming album Profane Nexus, which is due out on August 11 via Relapse Records.

Incantation Guitarist and Vocalist John McEntee, had this to say regarding the direction of the video:
“With the advent of 360-video visualizer technology, we were able to convey the song’s powerful imagery alongside the intensity of the music. This song is an example of one of the more aggressive songs on the album. We feel it’s the perfect representation of death metal and everything an Incantation fan wants. Rage motherfuckers!”

The band is currently recording its upcoming full-length at their own Incantation Studios in Johnstown, PA.

We are extremely excited to announce that we are returning to the Relapse Family. They were there a quarter century ago when Incantation and Relapse were both starting their careers, so to be able to come full circle and release our 10th studio album with them is truly amazing and we are looking forward to the release and touring this record later this year!!!!” -Kyle Severn

Yes it is true we have returned to Relapse Records. Over the last 8 years we have been working with them on various projects with great results. It’s awesome to start a new chapter of the band going back to our roots and working with the label that believed in us back in 1990 when we were still a demo band. It’s great to work with a label that still believes in us in 2016 and still believes in the perseverance of real death metal.” – John McEntee

Music Video: Incantation – “Invoked Infinity”

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, February 14, 2013 at 3:30 PM (PST)

incantationJust in time for Valentines Day comes the new video from Pennsylvania death metal band Incantation.  The video is for the song “Invoked Infinity” and comes from the band’s 2012 Listenable Records release Vanquish in Vengeance.  The video was filmed in an old-timey funeral home and should set the mood perfectly for you and your sweetie tonight.

Click right here to check out the video.

Incantation bassist Chuck Sherwood had the following to say about the video:

“The new video was filmed in an authentic turn of the century funeral home. Its concept is the ritual combination of three formulas/systems of magic. A personal interpretation of its results when evoked entities/elementals of these pantheons are brought within. Visually it culminates the essences of each elemental force, its earthbound entity and the ethereal. In the violent nature of the music, it’s only expanded in the creation and presentation of this video. Take what you will from it.”
