On Thursday November 21, I came across a small article from New Noise Magazine that heralded an obscure masterpiece called Hidden History of the Human Race by the band Blood Incantation. They gave the album a rare perfect rating.
So I checked out their latest single: Inner Paths (to Outer Space)
Amazing. Billed as Cosmic Death Metal, I had to have more. I found the album online and was stunned by what it wasn't as much as what it was. What it wasn't was straight on Death Metal. What is was, was a metal broth. Starting out as you would expect from Death Metal, the album quickly began shifting gears and then strapped the listener in for a snaking journey through sounds and manufactured metal barriers. One filled with surprises and experimentation. Heck, I'm a metal amateur. What do the professionals say?
"Blood Incantation have created a contender for death metal album of the year here." -Kerrang!
"Hands-down the greatest record of the year." -Invisible Oranges
"...Propelling Blood Incantation extremely close to creating a groundbreaking genre masterpiece."
"Blood Incantation take death metal as it is, and they blow out into something grand and mystical."
"It’s a time-warping instant underground classic." -ToiletovHell
