Incite is a thrash metal band formed in Phoenix, Arizona, United States at the end of 2004 by Richie Cavalera, the son of Max Cavalera. The band continued writing and performing local shows and eventually began to work with Gloria Cavalera’s Oasis Management. Their first demo, entitled “Murder” was created in 2006 at the Saltmine Studio in Mesa, AZ, and it featured songs such as “You Should Be Killed”, and “Follow Me”. Through Oasis, they landed on several U.S tours with bands like Soulfly, Cavalera Conspiracy, Cradle of Filth, Dillinger Escape Plan, Throwdown, Bloodsimple, Thine Eyes Bleed, Bury Your Dead, Scars of Tomorrow, and Gizmachi.

In 2008, they released their first official EP, entitled “Divided We Fail”, at Villain Recording in Phoenix, AZ. After the release of this EP, they received radio support from Sirius Satellite radio and other local and college radio stations around the world. The band has a 2008 world tour with Soulfly which was tentatively planned to carry over into early 2009. Their debut “The Slaughter” was produced by Logan Mader, known from his work with bands like Devildriver, Cavalera Conspiracy and Divine Heresy, which was released in 2009.
