Blood Incantation – Hidden History Of The Human Race (2019)

Blood Incantation have won the hearts and minds (lol) of death metal fans the world over and it really is easy to see why. Their space and sci-fi vibes may be more akin to thrashers Voïvod or Vektor, but there is no loss of brutality here on Hidden History Of The Human Race.

The songs are intricately crafted and very well produced (but not over-polished!), with a stage that gives these monsters room to breath. There is a smattering of non-traditional metal instrumentation too, which adds to the otherworldly vibes, and actually reminds me of Nile a bit, here and there. Great shit.
