Incite is an American groove metal band from Phoenix, Arizona formed in 2004. The band currently consists of Richie Cavalera (vocals), Christopher EL (bass guitar) and Lennon Lopez (drums). Frontman Richie Cavalera is best known as the stepson of former Sepultura and Nailbomb, and current Soulfly and Cavalera Conspiracy frontman Max Cavalera.

Incite have released two EPs, Murder (2006) and Divided We Fail (2007). They have released five full-length albums: The Slaughter (2009), the Logan Mader produced All Out War (2012), Up in Hell (2014), Oppression (2016), and Built to Destroy (2019). The band are currently signed to Minus Head Records.


Incite was formed in late 2004. After gigging in the local area with Richie appearing on Soulfly's album Dark Ages and Cavalera Conspiracy's Inflikted, the quartet released an EP in 2007 entitled Divided We Fail, with track "Army of Darkness" being the first track posted by the group on Myspace.[1] 2007 also saw an overhaul of the original Incite lineup with Richie Cavalera the sole remaining original member as he sought to make the group more professional.[2] 2009 saw the release of début LP The Slaughter and tours supporting groups such as Soulfly and The Dillinger Escape Plan, however soon the group parted ways with their record label.

After the group signed a deal with minus HEAD records, they began working on their sophomore effort All Out War, which was eventually released on November 20, 2012. The album was produced by former Machine Head and Soulfly guitarist Logan Mader, and has been supported by the Maximum Cavalera Tour, with Soulfly (fronted by Richie's stepfather Max Cavalera) and Lody Kong (consisting of Richie's half brothers Zyon and Igor). During this time, guitarist Dis left the band and was replaced by Gene Macazan. The song Die Alone was released as a free download by SkullsNBones on November 15, 2012.[3] A music video for the song Hopeless was released on November 29.[4]

Drummer Zak Sofaly, bassist Luis Marrufo and guitarist Gene Macazan left Incite in 2013 for personal reasons. They were replaced by Derek Lopez, Christopher EL and Dru Rome respectively; this lineup recorded the band's next three albums Up in Hell (2014), Oppression (2016) and Built to Destroy (2019).
