Metal Injection
Every song on this album is fantastic and gives both the avid Incantation fan and death metal generalist plenty to explore.

Death metal may be experiencing a renaissance with a horde of killer news bands reigniting interest in the genre, but with Unholy Deification, it shows that the old guard still have plenty of life in them yet.

Unholy Deification gives older Incantation fans some gifts while taking others away. Sound-wise it’s darker and meaner than last time, but some of the material feels lighter and almost borders on melodeath.

Best: Concordat (The Pact) I, Chalice (Vessel Consanguineous) VIII, Invocation (Chthonic Merge) X
Meh: Homunculus (Spirit Made Flesh) IX, Convulse (Words of Power) III, Altar ... read more
