Incite are locked and loaded for a modern thrash revolution.
The Arizona quartet fuses tight, technical shredding and monstrous grooves together on their formidable second full-length release produced by Logan Mader [DevilDriver, Fear Factory, Five Finger Death Punch, Gojira]. Due out fall 2012 on minus HEAD Records, it’s brutal, bludgeoning, and bloodthirsty metal.
Singer Richie Cavalera is no stranger to quality heavy music. Immersing himself in the genre as a kid, his destiny was always the stage.In 2004, along with Zak [drums], Dis [guitar], and Luis [bass], Richie formed Incite with that in mind.
Soon after, the band destroyed venues across Europe, Canada, Australia and the United States with everyone from Dillinger Escape Plan to Soulfly, garnering rave reviews from tastemakers such as Kerrang! in the process. The group’s 2009 debut, The Slaughter, left an indelible mark on the genre. Revolver called it “thrash that’s hard to refuse/resist”, and the single “Army of Darkness” hit #31 on the Sirius Metal Charts.
Now, they’re bringing everything to a new level with their second full-length. Incite’s modern musical assault and battery has been honed and sharpened. It’s their time now. You’ve been warned.
What was once an outlet for humorous expression, now has become a vehicle to condemn listeners to a damn good time. Bloodletter conjures images of hellish punishment for those who have sinned and salvation for those who bend their knee to the dark lord. The expression “like a bat out of hell” has never been more appropriate. Combining pulsing drums, thundering bass, face shredding guitars and ghastly vocals, Chicago’s own, Bloodletter is unleashing a sonic assault of hellish music for all to hear.
Combining elements of speedy thrash, death, black, power metal and hardcore punk, along with a stage show that will make those faint of heart shiver and shake, Bloodletter is on a campaign to not only become super villains of the Chicago metal scene, but to teach lowly sinners a lesson through spreading their bombastic brand of metal upon all who listen.
