Biography
The early years of American death metal – in all its palm muted, tremolo picked, madness-inspired pacing – forever changed the landscape of heavy music. It was an era that produced many now-classic releases from such heavyweights as Cannibal Corpse, Death, Morbid Angel, Entombed, Deicide, Obituary, Autopsy, among many others.

While the leaders and innovators of American death metal valiantly fortified their walls against the onslaught of the flannel and Doc Martin clad of that time, a host of new bands sprung up nationwide – all eager to defend and descant the blasphemous gospels laid down by their forebears. Spawned deep within this subterranean realm of unsanctity came the groundbreaking, Relapse Records-released Onward To Golgotha – a musical scripture of spine-chilling and inhuman sounds by the now-legendary INCANTATION. A bleak and suffocating trip through a doom-infused purgatory, Golgotha was the first of its kind.

With over a quarter-century under their bullet-adorned belts, INCANTATION main-man John McEntee, and longtime drummer Kyle Severn, have proven that age is certainly not a predetermining factor as it relates to brutality and longevity. Throughout these formative years, INCANTATION continued to spread their demonic reign, releasing three more unholy testaments with Relapse including: Diabolical Conquest (1998), Mortal Throne of Nazarene (1994) and The Infernal Storm (2000). The next decade-plus saw the band expand their blasphemous empire, releasing several full-lengths with notable metal-centric labels Candlelight and Listenable Records.

Approaching the latter half of 2017, INCANTATION is set to prove – once again – that their vertigo-inducing, ever-spiraling blackened mass of death metal malevolence is as expansive, infinite and bleak as the coldest, darkest reaches of our universe. At the pinnacle of their storied career, the guys have engineered a brand new weapon of anti-biblical proportions. This weapon, entitled Profane Nexus, comes armed with eleven tracks of musical antipathy, impregnated with the band’s inherent, unrivaled, visual and lyrical depravity.

Recorded at the band’s own Incantation Studios in Johnstown, PA and mixed/mastered by Dan Swanö (Bloodbath, Asphyx, Dark Funeral), Profane Nexus is perhaps the finest example of pummeling death metal and disemboweling funeral doom ever conceived.
