Cosmic death metal band BLOOD INCANTATION present the music video for “Slave Species of the Gods.” The band comments on the newest single off of their upcoming album, Hidden History of the Human Race.
“Slave Species of the Gods” was filmed at our performance in Santa Ana on October 11th during our tour with Immolation. Directed and edited by Gabe Gomez, who first filmed us on our very first tour, the video for this song evokes the disorienting, chaotic and psychedelic vibe of our live concert.
“Filmed directly onto VHS, the video contains an aesthetic similar to many of our favorite old recordings of classic bands while also being engagingly trippy. The song itself was the second song written for ‘Hidden History of the Human Race’ and has been played live since the Decibel tour.
“Being the first track on the record, “Slave Species of the Gods” is meant as a full force brutalizer, going non- stop over the course of its relatively short five minutes and thirty-one seconds.”

3. Inner Paths (to Outer Space)

BLOOD INCANTATION was formed in 2011 by guitarist/vocalist Paul Riedl and drummer Isaac Faulk. Joined by guitarist Morris Kolontyrsky and bassist Jeff Barrett, the band spent many years developing their sound through rehearsal demos and promo tapes before finally embarking on their first tour in 2015, which coincided with the release of their debut studio EP Interdimensional Extinction on Dark Descent Records.
After releasing a now-infamous split EP with Spectral Voice, the band released its debut album Starspawn (Dark Descent Records) in 2016, which took the underground death metal world by storm with its cerebral whirlwind of intense and otherworldly atmospheric death metal. BLOOD INCANTATION have shared the road with acts like DEMILICH, CRUCIAMENTUM & NECROT as well as MORBID ANGEL, CANNIBAL CORPSE, IMMOLATION and even ARCTURUS.
Through multiple campaigns across Europe and the USA, with appearances in Canada, Australia, Turkey, and Israel, BLOOD INCANTATION have established themselves as a powerful force in the underground live circuit, having additionally dominated a multitude of esteemed festivals such as Brutal Assault, Party-San Open Air, Kill-Town Deathfest, Beyond The Gates, Maryland Deathfest and more.
