Song premiere: Incite carry the flag for metal on ‘Fallen’

Posted by on August 14, 2014

With their third album, Up In Hell, coming out on September 2, Incite have essentially started all over again. With vocalist Richie Cavalera the only remaining member of the band after 2012’s All Out War, he found himself teaming up with original member Kevin “Dis” on rhythm guitar amidst a new rhythm section and lead guitarist. The songs that became Up In Hell were written in both Phoenix and New Jersey before the new lineup converged on the studio with Matt Hyde (Deftones, Slayer) behind the board. The result is thrashy metalcore that musically separates Richie from the lineage of his last name. Cavalera says that “Fallen,” which we’re premiering below, is the most emotional song on the album:

“It’s got the most meaning for me. It’s about losing family and friends. It’s something everybody goes through. I’ve lost so many people. Right before we started making the album,  a longtime high school friend passed away from a drug overdose. It was really hard. I took those emotions of losing something and put them in ‘Fallen’.”

The band say they want to “carry the flag for metal” on this album. Based on “Fallen,” they’ve succeeded. Up In Hell will be out on September 2nd on Minus Head. You can preorder it here.
