Niklas Ramlök A crushing debut from the undisputed masters of cavernous death metal, richly blasphemous, and rife with vile riffs.

Matthew Toye Incantation are the original recipe for this style of death metal. Many have tried to copy their intensity, blasphemy and brutality. Nothing else compares to 'Onward To Golgotha'. Favorite track: Christening the Afterbirth.

xhrl_ Likely the finest death metal LP I have heard yet, and I don't mean just by Incantation. The musical vision is clear and unified and very focussed. Though I have had this album for almost half of my life, it is one that has provoked me over the years & continues to do so even as my beard continues to grey. Greatness as this is for refined ears. This is music for we who love the ways of the warrior & the ways of nature in its destruction & creation. Long may this LP trample down death by death! Favorite track: Unholy Massacre.

Long heralded as one of the heaviest, sickest, and most uncompromising death metal bands in the world, New Jersey's Incantation has forged a legacy of brutality unmatched by any other American group. In 1992, the bands most celebrated lineup entered a then unknown Trax East Studios with a then unproven engineer Steve Evetts and emerged with Onward to Golgotha, the most dark and blasphemous death metal record to date. The combination of the inhuman growl of vocalist Craig Pillard, the ruthlessly savage aural malevolence, and pitiless anti-Christian attack was the ultimate musical sacrilege. Onward... redefined the bounds of brutality and blasphemy for the entire genre of death metal. This is absolute brutality!!!
