Incantation have been around for years, spewing forth their doomy-death metal to countless masses. If you are remotely into extreme metal you should know and own their albums already. Decimate Christendom is an aptly named disc as this bulldozer of debauchery rolls on through eleven cuts of sonic driven evil. I like how this band builds on certain songs, showing patience in their music. The use of haunting backdrops and slower, eerie sections gets the head bobbing perfectly, setting up the more ferocious moments of the disc. In their day, Incantation was among the most extreme metal bands out there. While this release is another brutal chapter in their history, I can't help but feel they need to expand on the style they claim a stake in helping to mold. For me, the inclusion of some shredding guitar solos would have added this platter of splatter to the upper echelon of brutal albums released this year. All in all, this is still an intense listen and nod to the old school from a highly respected band.
Bottom Line: The old death metal machine keeps chugging on and on......
