Incantation “Onward to Golgotha” special set at MDF 2025

Incantation, the legendary death metal band originally from New Jersey, made a profound impact with their debut album “Onward to Golgotha” in 1992. Known for its uncompromising brutality and occult themes, the album is revered for its unrelenting heaviness and dark atmosphere. “Onward to Golgotha” is often cited as a cornerstone of the death metal subgenre known as “cavernous death metal”, characterized by its murky production, guttural vocals, and crushing riffage. It remains a cult classic among death metal enthusiasts and a crucial influence on the extreme metal scene.

Incantation will perform the album “Onward to Golgotha” in its entirety at Maryland Deathfest XX, May 22—25, 2025 in Baltimore.
