26 Years Ago: INCANTATION release Onward to Golgotha


And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
And sitting down they watched him there;
And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews.

INCANTATION released their brutal debut album on this day in 1992.

It was our first album, so obviously it was something very important to me. But to be honest we never really expected people to like the album in the first place. We just wanted to play Death Metal in our own way with our own feeling. We never thought it would be anything too big, we were just happy to do an album. It's an honor that people really enjoyed it. We just really like to do what we feel is right and let the chips fall where they may. I think the album is good. I have to say that I'm happy with it. I mean there are obvious flaws but overall I think we did a good album and I think for the time it was where we were at that time with the band and it's great to get a capture on a recording, definitely something to look back on and be proud of.
- John McEntee, Necromaniac #10
