Heavy metal frontrunners INCITE – lead by frontman Richie Cavalera – are set to release their upcoming fifth full-length album, Built To Destroy, on January 25, 2019 via Minus Head Records. Produced by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence) and mastered by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed), Built to Destroy is a visceral, urgent, voracious distillation of modern metal with reverence for the past, and boasts a progressed, matured sound for INCITE.
Today, INCITE follows up on the release of their previous two singles, “Ruthless Ways” and “Built to Destroy”, with a new track, entitled “Poisoned by Power”. The track features guest vocal contributions from Chris Barnes of Six Feet Under. Listen to the full track now via Loudwire.
Frontman Richie Cavalera says, “We’re pumped to give the metalheads another taste of what this album is all about – pure heavy metal! We’re honored to have Chris Barnes of Six Feet Under throw down his brutal pipes as a special guest on this track. This song is about powerful people screwing over the rest of us. It’s heavy, it’s got a killer breakdown and will definitely start the pit!”
Chris Barnes stated in a recent tweet, “Be sure to pick up the new INCITE album! Got brutal on “Poisoned by Power”. Killer fucking band and great friends.”
Built to Destroy is available for pre-order now via Bandcamp, iTunes and Amazon. Listen to two new tracks from Built to Destroy, “Ruthless Ways” and “Built to Destroy”.

Nearly 15 years into a career in which everything they’ve accomplished was earned and nothing was taken for granted, Built To Destroy lands as a jaw-dropping showcase for INCITE. Frontman and band founder Richie Cavalera delivers stark examinations of a shattered psyche, through guttural snarls, with vivid dynamics and power. There’s a harmonious discordance with the near-deathcore pummel of fluid bassist “EL” and powerhouse drum basher Lennon Lopez, who both worship at the altar of groove. Peppering the album with more solos than ever before, guitarist and principal songwriter Dru Rome truly shines. Rome‘s lead guitar work recalls the glory of Arise-era Sepultura, harnessing a stadium-worthy energy, drawing upon his dual experience as a trained violinist. Both Kirk Windstein (Crowbar) and Chris Barnes (Six Feet Under) guest on the album.
With certified bangers like “Ruthless Ways,” “Resistance,” and the album’s title track, Built To Destroy joins an impressive and steadily growing catalog of albums – Oppression (2016), Up in Hell (2014), All Out War (2012), and The Slaughter (2009) – all of which have produced a number of songs now near-and-dear to the INCITE faithful.
As renegade disciples of trailblazing metal architects like Pantera, Slayer, Sepultura, and Machine Head, INCITE raise the torch for trend-killing and hipster-smashing metal. INCITE maintain their dedication to realism and brutal gimmick-free music with Built To Destroy.
