Like a swamp vortex sucking all light into its putrescent eye, Incantation’s Onward To Golgotha – recorded in 1991, mixed and released early 1992 – is the final classic opus of American death metal’s first – and only vital – phase. Whereas fellow New York band Suffocation went for a relentless, brutal new slam-sound with unfeasible vocals, Incantation present death metal as a murky, swirling and fathomless occult summoning, an immersive descent into the bowels of some great Satanic beast. Onward To Golgotha is a fitting closer for the age of pure death metal, before repetition and dilution for the masses set in like an unchecked corpse-rot.
