INCANTATION Re-Signs With RELAPSE, Completes Work On New Album

Relapse Records has announces the re-signing of death metal veterans INCANTATION. The band, which originally signed to the label in the early 1990s and released some of the most influential extreme metal albums of all time, including "Onward To Golgotha" (1992), "Mortal Throne Of Nazarene" (1994), "Diabolical Conquest" (1998), and "The Infernal Storm" (2000), has come full circle to reunite with Relapse for its forthcoming tenth studio album.

INCANTATION, an institution for over 25 years, remains hands down one of the most important, influential and consistently regarded artists in metal, and the band's new material is sure to be no exception.

The group is currently recording its upcoming full-length at their own Incantation Studios in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The album will be mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö (BLOODBATH, ASPHYX, DARK FUNERAL) and is expected to be completed in February, with a release date slated for this summer. Upon completing the album, INCANTATION will head to Europe to tour with MORGOTH, DARKRISE and OMOPHAGIA. The band has also been confirmed for this year's Obscene Extreme festival in the Czech Republic and will announce more dates and festival appearances shortly. A complete listing of dates is included below.

INCANTATION's Kyle Severn commented on the re-signing: "2016 is off to a great start for INCANTATION death metal!!!

"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 tenth studio album with them is truly amazing and we are looking forward to the release and touring this record later this year!!!!"

Added INCANTATION's John McEntee: "Yes, it is true we have returned to Relapse Records. Over the last eight 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."

Relapse Records founder/president Matt Jacobson said: "INCANTATION are one of the true pioneers of American death metal and their unwavering dedication, consistency and longevity is unmatched. We are proud to welcome them back to their original home."
