Invocation from Chile, represents the darker, chaotic and mysterious side of Death Metal. Combined to elements from Black and Thrash Metal, Invocation delivers a dirty, raw and brutal package.
Who are you and what do you do in your band?
The names or pseudonyms are irrelevant for us, all I can say is that we refer to ourselves as ”Black Entities”…
When/where was your band formed?
INVOCATION (Chile) born in late 2015 A.B. and has endeavored to combine influence from the most chaotic Death Metal with the eternal darkness of occult and ritualistic Black Metal.
Why did you choose to play Death Metal?
We never plan to play a particular style, our musical vibrations were created with absolute conviction and devotion to darkness, just listen the music and see how your mind is transported to the endless void…
How do you compose your music? Does only one guy do everything or does everyone contribute?
In our first rehearsal we downtune our guitars/bass and the first track ”Devout Effusions” born immediatly, then came the name, the logo, etc. About the process of composition, generally each one of us come with early riffs or ideas to the rehearsal temple and we start to work from there, this can take days, weeks even months, So, over the last months we were able to refine our sound into that we call ”Ritualistic and Hypnotic Black/Death Metal”, but beware! there are still many mysteries…
Tell us about your lyrics, writing, inspiration etc.
About our music inspiration, I can write a tons of bands, books, artists, etc. but we’re very influenced by the old south american sound Vulcano, Mystifier, Sepultura, Sextrash, Bestymator, Mutilator, Expulser, Dorsal Atlantica, etc. mixed with the some foreign Death and Black sound of Demoncy, Teitanblood, Cultes Des Ghoues, Pseudogod, Necros Christos, Dead Congregation, Embrace of Thorns, Grave Miasma, Temple Nightside, Malthusian, Possession, Irkallian Oracle, etc, etc. INVOCATION’s music has their own vibe and atmosphere, this two elements in communion with the artwork creates a formidable mix in that our listener can experience all the magic of sound and can be transported to different ways in search of the correct entity…
Tell us about your new EP Seance Part.I
Actually we release it as a Demo cassette through Godz ov War productions from Poland (limited to 100), and you know, the analog format fits perfect with the traditional Black/Thrash/Death Metal sound… We have an agreement to release ”Seance Part: I” in pro cassette (200 copies) through Destruktor-Records from Perú as a ”South American Version”, this will include two exclusive tracks called ”ZoZo (Instrumental)” and ”Medium”, this will be out the first days of September 2016 a.b.
How do you see the state of Death Metal music these days in your country and in general?
Our country have a traditional Death/Black metal sound build up by Pentagram, Death Yell, Sadism, Atomic Aggressor, Massacre, Torturer, Totten Korps, etc. Nowadays we have a strong underground sound and ”scene” composed by the most extreme bands around the globe acts like Unaussprechlichen Kulten, Magnanimus, Diabolical Messiah, Godless, Dominus Xul, Force of Darkness, Ammit, Slaughtbbath, Communion, Wrathprayer, Ejecutor, Cancerbero, Miserycore, and lately Unholy Force, Black Grail, Infernal Slaughter, Perversor, Concatenatus, etc, etc. and as I always said all this it’s a consecuence of our truly sence of compromise and devotion to the music and the respect of the underground arts, we take this very serious…
What are your long term plans as a band? What do you want to achieve?
Besides the ”South American Version” of Seance Part:I demo, We’re planning a Split and a 7” EP for early 2017 (probably with 2-3 songs), so we have a lot of work to do… hope this material bring us a lot of gigs to show this morbid sound in all the possible places…
Name an other Death Metal band from your country that everyone should hear.
There are so many killer bands… Uttertomb, Death Vomit, Putrid Yell, Trimegisto, Horrifying, Eaten Alive, Demonic Rage, Praise the Flame, Feretro, Coffin Curse, Buried, Worship Death, Disembowel, etc, etc.
Thanks for your interest in the band and remember there’s no light, only pure hypnotic darkness…
