Though I haven't heard much talk of it, I'm sure this group is keen on some crushing Death Metal. This band, to me, is the absolute best going right now. No other current death band has made the impact that this record has on me!
Hopefully some might be familiar with their music already, but if not: expect Morbid Angel worship from sons of a cosmic warwomb of a moon (description may vary depending on listener!)
Edit: changed thread topic from "Blood Incantation" to "Death Metal"
I've never been much interested in death metal apart from a few choice classics. I'm in an odd mood tonight though, listening now, seems quite good. The album art is great too.
Edit: Oh man, that riff at 16:40
If you like this, death metal has gone through sort of a new renaissance since 2007. I would say that the highlights for the past ten year have been some of the better. The style can range from this
to something more forward thinking
to something that is clean and classic without being a clone of older styles
to even great combos with thrash
death metal is actually one of my favorite genres and is something that I have been constantly impressed with and has been highlights at the end of the year along side of fewer and fewer black metal records.
A lot of death metal is kind of hit or miss for me. I like more melo-death and gothic death, but I also really like the cavernous insane sounding stuff like Portal. This youtube channel is pretty kool for find new things in that realm, a lot of black metal here too.
This album is pretty good, a really well done classic sound

I've lately been on a total old school death metal trip. Spotify has a surprisingly large selection of more or less obscure late 80's and early 90's bands! Finnish classics like Funebre, Purtenance and Convulse are all very good... murky, rotten, doom-laden slowness with none of that thrash-tinged riffing and blasting high tempos of their US colleagues, and Sweden had a very different approach to that thrash-infused approach, far more vicious and pungent than the americanos. Right now I am listening to the sole album of a Swedish band called God Macabre, and it's like a slightly more rocking version of early Paradise Lost, the vocalist nails the Nick Holmes growls spot on, and the style is a perfect combination of the eerie and doom-laden approach of Paradise Lost with the brutal, sharp riffing of classic Swedish bands.
Now I remember why I fell in love with extreme metal when I was a kid. Death metal was my gateway, although I quickly moved over to black metal, but truthfully very few black metal bands impress me the way these old Swedish and Finnish death metal bands do.
I have a pretty substantial soft spot for this album and The Monolith Deathcult's Trivmvirate, that kind of high production symphonic historical death metal dork stuff. I guess Nile fits into that too but I never really listened to anything besides Those Whom the Gods Detest. Also some Therion albums. Anyone have recommendations for this kind of death metal? Doesn't have to be historical, but it seems like it often is.

Hmm not sure if I've heard that one..But anything from Septicflesh (one word now strangely) after Revolution DNA seemed to me ... nothing special.. But their older works(Fallen Temple) are goood good ones
As for Therion, on the contrary I don't like much their early era but there is strong stuff there, but they have all time classic metal albums from Theli and on up to Lemuria and Sirius B.. That mid-era had only masterpieces, a great band.. too bad they also have a decline now as well imho..
Yes no recs here for what you asked but just my 2 cents anyway
