Built to Destroy

Built to Destroy is the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Incite. Released on Friday, January 25, 2019[1] through via Minus Head Records,[2] the work was mastered by Chris Zeuss Harris and produced by Steve Evetts.[1]


Lead vocalist Richie Cavalera states that “Our new song ‘Ruthless Ways‘ is about being a piece of sh*t and it finally catching up with you. It’s the exact vibe we wanted to explode out the gate with. The song is brutal, catchy, and hella groovy. It’s a good feel for what to expect on this new album. Huge riffs, massive drums, bass for days, and a new vocal feel that to me is pure evil and nasty. We kept it real heavy – get your headbang on.”[3] Cavalera also states that song "Poisoned by Power" "is about powerful people screwing over the rest of us".[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Larry Petro of KNAC states that "Built To Destroy" "wastes no time delivering its unrelenting attack, eventually leading into a searing guitar solo and leaving the listener with no question as to where the name INCITE comes from".[5]

Joe DiVita of Loudwire describes "Poisoned by Power" as "a raucous three-and-a-half minutes of dismal tremolo-picked melodies and jagged chugging, features a guest vocal from Six Feet Under's Chris Barnes, doubling the bark behind Incite's fang-toothed bite".[4]
