Incantation live in Chicago

Incantation have been busy lately. Just two years after the release of their latest full-length, Sect of Vile Divinities, they are releasing a career-spanning compilation album called Tricennial of Blasphemies through Relapse Records, featuring demos, unreleased tracks, and live recordings.

Their touring has been consistent as well. I caught them August 11th at Reggies Rock Club for the Vile Ascension Tour. Incantation is a don’t-miss band for me. Since 1989, they have been a top-tier death metal band due to their perfect blend of sinister atmosphere and dynamics.

They played quite a bit of recent material and brought the Reggies crowd to a frenzy. Check out some photos below of their set!
