Here’s some tea. Tech-death conceptualists Blood Incantation recently unleashed minor metal controversy when they shot off a stray, snooty interview diss at another (somewhat more popular) young band: Gatecreeper. Recent developments have rendered that comment – an ill-advised attempt to situate themselves as prodigious, conceptually serious death metal musicians, far away from the mosh-ready slammage practiced by their contemporaries – even goofier. Blood Incantation plays third on the bill underneath the mighty Obituary, who not only basically originated Gatecreeper’s brand of righteously ignorant riffage (35 years ago), they’ve recorded podcasts together! Immolation and Ingrown round out the lineup.
