RF Files – Incantation

by on Sep.08, 2021, under Uncategorized

Incantation has been terrorizing neighborhoods for decades!! Over the years they have delivered evil-influenced death metal to the masses without compromising their sound or identity. Their ultimate goal is to blow your head off and they repeatedly successed. Hear the crazy stories from our main man himself John McEntee and morbid acolyte Chuck Sherwood as they go down memory lane. They are joined by the usual riff raffs!! Enjoy Muthas!!

I sit down with Britta Görtz – vocals and Lukas Kerk – guitars of German Melodic death metal band Hiraes about their debut album . German melodic death metal demon HIRAES is set to release its first sonic onslaught to the masses with the long-awaited, fearless debut offering, Solitary, on June 25, 2021 via Napalm Records. Today, after unleashing their raging first single, “Under Fire”, the unit – comprised of members of the disbanded Dawn Of Disease and with the powerful Britta Görtz (Critical Mess, ex-Cripper) on vocals – sets free their second offering and title track “Solitary”, along with an exciting official video. Heavy-driven riffs evoke a dark and explosive melodic death metal storm fueled by a fierce growling attack, dropping jaws and leaving a long-lasting impression.
