Incantation is notable for mixing widely varied tempos into their music, often playing slow, down-tuned passages similar to those performed by death/doom bands like Autopsy. To date the band has released eight full-length records, two live records, four EPs, two singles, three splits, one DVD, and three demos.
The band has seen many lineup changes in their 22-year history and guitarist John McEntee is the sole original member. Incantation first came to prominence with Onward to Golgotha and Mortal Throne of Nazarene, which features Craig Pillard on vocals. Following the release of the Forsaken Mourning of Angelic Anguish EP in 1997, Pillard departed Incantation and was replaced by Daniel Corchado of The Chasm. Corchado performed on one album, 1998's Diabolical Conquest, before departing. Vocalist Mike Saez performed on the next two albums, The Infernal Storm (2000) and Blasphemy (2002). Beginning with Decimate Christendom, guitarist and frontman John McEntee took on vocal responsibilities, a role that he continues to the present.
