Relapse Records has set an October 31 North American release date (November 6 internationally) for the reissue of legendary INCANTATION debut full-length, "Onward to Golgotha" (1991). Long heralded as one of the heaviest, sickest, and most uncompromising metal albums in the world, "Onward to Golgotha" redefined the bounds of brutality and blasphemy for all of death metal. The reasserted reissue comes complete with an extra DVD featuring three live sets from the "Onward..." lineup, expanded artwork, and more.Founder and guitarist/vocalist John McEntee commented: "I have been looking forward to this reissue for a long time now. I have great respect for my fellow 'Onward...' band members Craig (Pillard; guitar/vocals), Jim (Rowe; drums), and Ronnie (Deo; bass) and am very proud of what we created. It's amazing that true blasphemous death metal ended up being so timeless." McEntee added; "When the idea of doing the reissue came up, I wanted to make sure the other guys that played on the album would be involved with it. The album was truly a group effort and the reissue needed to reflect that. It was a great experience to get together with the other guys and remember all the killer times we had. We put this re-release together to make it special for all the long-time INCANTATION supporters and something that we feel represented the work we did as a band and time spent as friends." "Onward..." was recently named as one of the 20 best death metal albums of all time as well as one of the most important records in the genre by Decibel magazine.

"Primordial Domination" was recorded at Mars Recording Compound with longtime engineer Bill Korecky during the spring with the band's current lineup of McEntee, drummer Kyle Severn, and bassist Joe Lombard.
