Incandescence, the result of a long and tortuous journey, was officially formed in late 2010 by Philippe Boucher (Beyond Creation, First Fragment, Chthe’Ilist, Décombres). A few months later, Francis Desrochers (Dystre Fjell) joined the project as vocalist and lyric composer. The band felt it was the right time to take their unique brand of black metal to the studio to record their self released EP “La Valse des Ombres” in March 2012. Drawing inspiration from such bands as Drudkh, Deathspell Omega and Marduk the band released their first full-length album titled “Abstractionnisme” on November 28th 2013.
Incandescence performed on the 2013’s edition of “La Messe des Morts III”, a major black metal festival taking place in Montreal. The band is currently working on the second album, set to be released in early 2016 on Deathbound Records.
