Incarnadine Coven are a soprano-fronted symphonic metal band that aims to intrigue and entice in equal measure.
Standing on the shoulders of such giants as Epica, Nightwish and Tool, the classically influenced vocals lead epic and hook laden song-writing that is sure to challenge any listener’s musical preconceptions.
The genus of the idea for the band started when Dan and Rebecca were on tour with Reading Phoenix Choir (of which they were both members for many years) in 2010. The pair began writing some songs together and by late 2011 had something they thought might be worthy of a live band. They were then joined by Chis and Steve and Incarnadine Coven was born. Beginning to gig in the summer of 2012, the band have toured all over the UK, notably playing Dames of Darkness Festival in 2014 and Pagan Pride South in 2017. They have twice made it through to the Reading final of the Bloodstock Metal 2 the Masses and have also ventured overseas, to Belgium, where they received a riotous reception at Kraken Metal Fest 2013.

The band released their debut EP “Army of Ghosts” in 2014 to such great reviews that it demanded a follow up in order to bring more of their songs to the fore. Album preparation was underway in September 2017 when David Honour joined the Incarnadine family. A multi-instrumentalist and skilled songwriter in his own right, he brings a considerable amount of musicianship and production nous to the band as well as engineering the band’s first full length release. “Queens of the Real” is due to be released in early September 2018 and the band will be touring extensively around the UK and abroad this Autumn in support of it.
With vocalist Rebecca Cooch, guitarist Dan Bignell, bassist Steven Wallis, keyboardist David Honour and drummer Chris Oaten (who is made entirely of biscuit), the Incarnadine line up has a strong musical foundation and aims to offer an interesting alternative option in the metal scene.
Let’s see what Rebecca Cooch has to say about Vocalzone!
I have used Vocalzone pastilles since I used to sing with Reading Phoenix Choir about 10 years ago. At one point I remember that when Vocalzones were no longer available in the shops, a black market developed – such was their superiority! They really make a lot of difference if you’re feeling a bit vocally tired or a bit under the weather. I love the clear feeling they give to the voice, leaving you free to sing with your best technique, producing great vocal clarity without fear.
Let’s see what Dan Bignell has to say about Vocalzone!
Being of a taciturn consumer, I am suspicious of the advertising industry and therefore reluctant to be a loudhailer for any product. However, I am more than willing to be an ardent ambassador for Vocalzone.
