Including surrounding suburbs and so-called townships, Greater Johannesburg has a population of 7.8 million. It is reasonably likely that some of these are musicians, however only one of them plays in the band Incarnate Deity. Zerachiel is the sole member in Incarnate Deity, and he offers a blend of death and black metal, with symphonic orchestration. The track Valley Of Dry Bones,
Incarnate Deity is for fans of SepticFlesh, Dimmu Borgir, Carach Angren, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Antestor, Temple Of Perdition. Zerachiel handles guitars, bass, vocals, orchestration and drum programming.
Incarnate Deity present their new album Theodicy and this is a Christian metal project that creates epic blackened death metal sounds for both Christian and secular fans alike. Mixing and mastering was done by Allen Purkiss of Dreamlab Studio. Theodicy is an album with many nice and fascinating details and overall a very good symphonic metal album.
The track Plaguebearer starting with cello and piano. Slowly the music becomes more heavy and into black/death metal. The guitar work leads the eerie sounding track, and the choir background is very nice.
The Akeldama is a brutal track and the symphonic parts adds some nice background detail.
