In advance of its release, today the record comes online in full. Issues guitarist/vocalist Dara Santhai: "'Incantations Of Vengeance' takes you on a passage into the frailty and elemental depravity of the humanity condition, sorcery, and journeys beyond the realm of death... Offering a dynamic array of songs that volley between dark, doom laden material, and vigorous thrash, with the occasional homage to traditional heavy metal, Incantations Of Vengeance creates a diverse musical landscape."
In conjunction with the release of the record, Serpent Crown will bring these odes of enmity to the stage on a mini Northwest live takeover, with additional performances to be announced in the weeks to come.
