Modern Thrash band Incite hail from Phoenix, Arizona lead by Richie Cavalera, son of Max.
Richie Cavalera was simply born this way. He was baptized in a bar by Rob Halford’s devil horns when only a few days old, he’s the kid on the cover of legendary US thrashers Atrophy’s groundbreaking “Violent by Nature” album.
With legendary metal manager Gloria Cavalera as mom and thrash forefather Max Calavera as stepdad, Richie was made for thrashing us. After starting Incite back in 2004, he gave it ample time to ripen and experimenting with a rotating cast of members before finally cooling off the forge and revealing the sizzling metallic beast that was years in the making.
For many years now, Incite are a visceral groove metal force to be reckoned with, the lovechild of Lamb Of God, Pantera and Machine Head. On their five albums “The Slaughter” (2009), “All Out War” (2012), “Up in Hell” (2014), “Oppression” (2016) and “Built to Destroy” (2019) they cemented their reputation as one of America’s leading groove armadas, heavily hitting home with their blend of old school thrash majesty, timeless groove, frantic aggression, melody, skill,and bravado!
