Incite lights up Lexington’s Manchester Music Hall with blazing performance
With a career now spanning almost 15 years and counting, Arizona metallers Incite are touring in support of their newest album Built To Destroy which was produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence) and mastered by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed). The new album is “a visceral, urgent, voracious distillation of modern metal with reverence for the past”.
As the house lights drop the solid sunday evening crowd in Lexington push to the barrier as Incite, fronted by Richie Cavalera along with drummer Lennon Lopez, bassist Christopher “EL” and guitarist “Dru Tang” Rome, open their set with the title track from the new album, Built to Destroy and never looked back. Richie is a demon on stage. With a frenetic stage presence he is in perpetual motion from the word go, egging on the crowd for all of the energy they have.
Not much for on stage banter, the guys barely take a breath as “Ruthless Ways,” “Resistance,” and “Up In Hell” come blasting off the stage in rapid fire succession that has the crowd moshing hard in a never-ending circle pit. Incite finish off their explosive, hard driving set “Backbone” from the Oppression album before ending with “Savior Self” also from the Built to Destroy album.
