In 2014 they delighted the fans of melodic emphasized EPIC VIKING METAL with their acclaimed album „Elderslied“.
Now the Basque masters INCURSED return with a remarkably fine EP, which can optimally represent the typical style of the playful band.
Officially, „The Slavic Covenant“ was released on July 31, 2017.
This EP serves as a harbinger for the upcoming studio album „Amalur“, which was funded by the band with a crowdfunding campaign. The official release of „Amalur“ will be announced in time.
The five mercurial compositions on „The Slavic Covenant“, including the equally surprising and original done A-ha cover of the chartbreaker „Take On Me“, show a completely unused and persistently hungry formation. INCURSED also free up massive energy spills in 2017!
For the song Fear A‘ Bhata“, INCURSED adapted the musical basic theme of a Gaelic folkloric song from the late 18th century. The refrain is presented in original language.
The modified band logo – in Cyrillic spelling – on „The Slavic Covenant“ is a courageous tribute of the crafty Basque bunch to a Ukraine tour, which has been remembered as a wonderful experience.

„With this small appetizer we were left with the desire to hear the album „Amalur“ in full. If it sounds half as good as these four advances we can find a chant in our teeth.“

„… a new work very accomplished and full of strength …“
