We are back!
Yes, here we are again! We want to release our fifth full-length album, named Baskavígin, in the fall of 2020, and we request your aid! In a path that began with Amalur, our previous album, we want to show you a bigger slice of the Basque mythology and culture, but never rejecting the chance to develop humorous and creative brand new stories.
We don't want to unveil too much info yet, but for those who do not know, Baskavígin is translated as "The Basque massacre" in Icelandic. This was a major event which took place in the early 1600s, when a group of Basque whale hunters were assassinated by the local population in Iceland, after severe daily life confrontations. Those measures were taken according to the Icelandic book of legislation from 1281, which is called Jónsbók.
Who are we?
In case you still don't know about us, we are Incursed, a Folk/Pagan Metal band hailing from Bilbao (Basque Country). The band was born in 2007 and has undergone several line-up changes, ending up in (from left to right):
We toured Spain and part of Europe in a series of gigs named A Journey to Amalur. You can see some of our live performances in the following link (more in the bottom of the page):
Milagre Metaleiro (Pindelo Dos Milagres, Portugal)
Unlike Amalur, we think this will be the most informal and straightforward album by Incursed up to date. A journey of music up to an hour, in which you'll be unable to stop banging your head. Promise!

What will be my pledge used for?
Your pledges will help fund the production costs for the album (recording, mixing and mastering) at Chromaticity Studios with Pedro J. Monge, and the reward production costs (CDs, T-shirts, and so on) as well. Likewise, Warbanner.eu is taking care of all the artwork design, also funded with your support.
It is a heavily expensive process, and we'll need all the help we can get. In quick terms, these are the expenses we will have to face:
Recording, mixing and mastering: 3000€
Merchandising production: 3000€
Media and layout design: 2500€
Promotion and distribution: 2000€
Dressing and scenography: 1500€
Which makes more than 12000€ that, obviously, don't include the endless hours of work and efforts behind. Your support means a lot to go on, pledges are a great help though ;)
