Incantation - Dirges of Elysium (2014)
Incantation have now 25 years of existence, and with a new album like Dirges of Elysium they keep going stong! obviously the album won't be as memorable and important for death metal as were their early albums. nevertheless Dirges is a very fine album and people into old school death and doom / death should enjoy it. it has everything that makes a good Incantation album, the good riffing and tremolo guitar playing, creating ominous atmospheres coupled with the slow paced grooves, the John McEntee guttural growls, the dirty sound (even if it's not as dirty as it has been in the past), the epic songwriting (even if the closer song is maybe a bit too long) and also the more typical old school death faster and trashier songs. globally it's really good stuff with some excellent moments.
