Incantation talk festival news and appearances

Incantation frontman comments on their Maryland DeathFest appearance and announce upcoming festival appearances.

Coming off the heels of yet another explosive and successful appearance at Maryland DeathFest, Incantation frontman and Ibex Moon Records founder John McEntee issued the following statement:

'We would like to thank all of our friends fans and supporters for making our appearance at the Maryland DeathFest another massive success for the band. The response we have gotten from this performance is nothing short of incredible. For us it's great to see that our style of uncompromising death metal is still alive and well in the United States. We would also like to thank our good friend Martin Van Drunen (Asphyx, Hail of Bullets) for sharing the stage with us for our cover of Scream Bloody Gore. It was also great to see the positive response we got for doing our Dio tribute of the tracks The Mob Rules and Stargazer. This was something that is very personal to us and its great to see the death metal community as a whole understanding that death metal along with other styles of metal would be a much different place and I believe for the worst without Ronnie's influence.'

'It was also the cool to get to hang out with all our friends and check out amazing bands like Autopsy, Sadistic Intent, Possessed, Coffins, The Chasm and Obliteration just to name a few. We want to personally thank Ryan and Evan four letting us be a part of such an awesome event. We definitely look forward to the rest of our festival appearances throughout 2010 and to play for all of our diehard supporters.'

'In label news, we would like to give a horns up to Asphyx for another amazing live set at MDF. We also like to thank everybody for stopping by the Ibex moon records table for the Asphyx autograph session. Along with everybody that came by to talk and/or picked up some of our merchandise. Thanks for a much for all the support it is greatly appreciated.'
