INCANTATION will be a featured headliner at the Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic and are playing Austria’s Kaltenback Open Air Festival as well. Guitarist / founder John McEntee had this to say regarding the upcoming appearances: "We are proud to announce that we will be one of the headliners for the Obscene Extreme Festival in the Czech Republic. We have heard a lot of great things about this festival and are looking forward to it very much. There are numerous other great Death Metal and Grind bands playing so I’m sure it will be a great time. I would also like to thank the festival organizers for including my other band FUNERUS on the festival. We look forward to putting on a totally kick ass show and we plan on making this a very special performance for all of our die hard supporters. We are also playing the Kaltenbach Open Air Festival in Austria. It will be a great honor to play there once again since we haven’t played there since our tour opening up for NILE and UNLEASHED a good while back. The lineup for the fest is nothing short of amazing and it will be great to play alongside such great bands and friends. We are looking forward to spewing forth our style of pure raw underground Death Metal." In other INCANTATION news, February will see the release of the Scapegoat 7" picture disc. This release will be limited to 1000 copies. Visit www.ibexmoonrecords.com for details and ordering information.
