Intergracia - EP Review: Rise of The Incubus

31 Dec 2017 // A review by Kerry Monaghan

Intergracia are a Kapiti/Wellington band, and as some may remember, formally known as Magnum Opus. They deliver powerful melodic metal that youíll love from the start.

Rise of the Incubus is their newly released EP, and hits all the right chords. Their energy and passion are obvious and infectious with crisp, clear vocals and insanely catchy hook riffs and solos that throw a hell of a punch.

Whether youíre straight up Metal, a little bit of Rock, or only about that melody, youíll get it all with these guys. No bulls***, just great music.

Tim Mekalick is lead vocalist and guitarist these days, with a profound sense of lyrical capability and a vocal style that catches your attention and keeps it throughout. The band are clearly great musicians and their technical ability is impressive.

Since their formation in 2008, the band have gone from strength to strength over the years in their local metal scene, and although they have had their share of line-up changes since, the band continue to establish themselves as an important part in New Zealandís metal scene.

If you havenít yet discovered Intergracia, get out from under that rock and discover, then go purchase a digital download of Rise of The Incubus. You wonít be disappointed.
