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, following the release of their first single, “Ruthless Ways” Incite are thrilled to reveal a brand new Tommy Jones-directed music video for the new album’s aggressive, no-frills title track, “Built to Destroy”. The track wastes no time delivering its unrelenting attack, eventually leading into a searing guitar solo and leaving the listener with no question as to where the name Incite comes from.
Frontman Richie Cavalera says,
“We’re ready for all the metalheads to hear and see this new video! We wanted to do something that was dark and full of energy with lots of heaviness, and really keep it all about the music. Are you 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 catalogue 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.
