Blood Incantation: Hidden History of the Human Race

Just when you thought that perhaps death metal was getting stale and not many bands were pushing boundaries anymore, along comes the Denver, Colorado act Blood Incantation, who over the course of two albums have managed to breathe new life into extreme metal. Hidden History of the Human Race is the bands second album for Dark Descent Records and follows their strong 2016 debut Starspawn. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Paul Riedl, drummer Isaac Faulk, bassist Jeff Barrett, and guitarist Morris Kolontyrsky, these guys take an old school death metal approach and combine that with a healthy dose of '70s psychedelia & space rock. Blazing, technical guitar riffs & leads, acrobatic, pummeling drums, and hazy, atmospheric synth washes create a level of brutality and eerie menace throughout these four lengthy tracks, with the three-part closing epic "Awakening" being one of the more adventurous tracks with its constantly changing landscape that switches back and forth between maniacal death metal and tranquil, spacey prog. Those into the technical aspects of extreme metal, such as vintage Death, Morbid Angel, Nile, etc. will love punishing tracks such as "Slave Species of the Gods", "The Giza Power Plant", and "Inner Paths (to Outer Space)", as the dizzying guitar riffs weave around each other over some mind-blowing drumming and terrifying vocal growls.

A brutal album, yet utterly majestic at times as well, Hidden History of the Human Race is a late 2019 death metal album not to be missed and signals a new heavy hitter on the scene for years to come.
