Arizona groove metal hotheads INCITE are back with new songs up their sleeve and have recently signed a contract with Atomic Fire Records.
After five relentless albums coming down like a ten ton hammer and with an insane touring schedule under their belts, Richie Cavalera and his gang of misfits gear up for “Wake Up Dead”, to be released on March 25th, 2022. This infectious collection of raucous new songs and remastered gems from their 15+ year career is once again proving that INCITE indeed are the missing link between Machine Head and Lamb of God.
On their five albums “The Slaughter” (2009), “All Out War” (2012), “Up in Hell” (2014), “Oppression” (2016) and “Built to Destroy” (2019) they cemented their reputation as one of America’s leading groove armadas, heavily hitting home with their blend of old school thrash majesty, timeless groove, frantic aggression, melody, skill, and bravado! What began as a band of greenhorns driving around the States in a shitty van thrashing small clubs has over time evolved into a band with the potential, the passion and the power to become one of groove metal’s biggest acts.
Written in several bouts of feverish inspiration across last years’ pandemic chaos, ’Wake Up Dead’ delivers the goods in the most relentless way. With recording duties again handled by legendary producer Steve Evetts (Richie: “The only guy who can simultaneously record The Cure and Suicide Silence and pull it off”) in Omen Room Studios just outside Los Angeles, here’s a band that couldn’t be more comfortable with the place they’re in right now. Kicking off with the open fire that is ‘Fuck With Me (Wake Up Dead)’, it’s especially the menacing second song ‘War Soup’ that will make a lasting impression on the international heavy metal troops – as the first INCITE song ever to feature the vocals of both Richie and his step-father Max Cavalera, a historical gathering of heavy metal generations.
