At the Florida Posse called INCURSION, no one should come up with the idea to call it part of the New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal. The origins of INCURSION go back to 1982 and at least three-fifths of the current line-up were already part of the band at that time.

The EP "The Hunter" was bagged last year and is now released by No Remorse as vinyl. This does not change the quality of the muck; classical metal with the necessary portion of melody but also hardness in guitar work and an excellent fronter determine the four songs of the EP, in addition to an intro and an outro. The varied 'Warrior Of Destruction', alternating between Stakkato Riffing, drifting up tempo and casual mid-tempo riffing, opens the ranks. 'Guiding Faith' begins with a classic Hohoho chorus and the rather slow tempo is dominated by a succinct riff, before the hymn-like, melodic vocals of 'Fade To Black' – can a song without Cliff be so hot? – the tempo is tightened again. After a melodic start, the Up Tempo breaker 'Kingdom Of The Dead' is unfortunately the last "real" track of the album.

record, there should have been a bit more songs. Let us hope that it will not take as long until the next output as the last time there were six-and-a-half years between the first and only demo of 1984 and the present EP.....until then, the motto for Trad-Metallers is: Buy or Die!

Incursion - "The Hunter"
"The Hunter" is Incursion's debut EP, a US band originally active between 1982 and 1986, which returned its activity back in 2018. Ready to assault you with their New Wave of Traditional Heavy Metal, Incursion are set to release "The Hunter" on CD and vinyl this fall.

Incursion has reunited and burst onto the traditional Heavy Metal scene. The band has released their debut six-song EP – The Hunter – on No Remorse Records. Incursion consists of original members Maxx Havick and Michael Lashinsky on guitars with Buddy Norris on drums. The lineup is completed by Stone Jamess on bass and Steve Samson on lead vocals.

The Miami, FL based band was active from 1982-1986 and did not have a formal release outside a locally produced cassette compilation of Florida Hardcore and metal bands in 1985. In 2018 the three original members got back together with the intent of finally performing and recording their wealth of material. Recruiting Steve and then Stone made the band complete and ready to present the music as it was intended. The Hunter is a concept EP. The Hunter – born in a war-torn land and destined to fight for survival since birth, faced all adversaries, man and beast alike. He mastered his inner demons through faith, battle and revenge. The Hunter’s blade led him through chaos to his final struggle with the false king. In his quest to become the King of All the Land, The Hunter’s journey is ageless, but almost forgotten.

The Hunter EP was recorded at Alpaca Ranch Recording by Chris Short ( Alestorm ). It was mixed by Jorg Uken
at Soundlodge Studios ( Anvil, Savage Blood, Powergame ). The Artwork was created by famed artist Phil Lawvere ( Celtic Frost, Kreator, Hirax ). The alliance with No Remorse will increase the interest in The Hunter EP
