Malfeitor is the brainchild of Aborym's own M.Fabbian (bass and vocals). You won't find that much resemblance with them on this disc, besides the ambient industrial instrumental closing the album, as well as some twisted songwriting. Two guitar players joined the hordes, namely Munholy and Hellaokabbulus.

Don't expect an avant-garde Black Metal album, but with the talent and skills involved, Incubus is far from being a boring and ordinary release. First, you are in for nearly an hour of solid and kicking Black Metal that was given a more than proper sound production. Those three musicians will give you a hell of a ride into the realm of dark music. What is well appreciated here is the fact that they won't stick to the same speed and mood from beginning to end, so moderate paces abound. They have encapsulated some pretty wicked atmosphere on this release. The vocals of founder M.Fabbian are of a sick type, may it be his rasps or growls. Both guitarists are excellent and they will give you a great deal for your money in their crunchy power riffs, tremolo picking, arpeggios or while performing some Black ‘n' Roll type of riffing. There are quite a few tracks worth mentioning like: "Into the Qliphol of Golachab", "Mysterious, Mystical, Majestic", "Typhonian Gods", and the annihilating good "Void of Voids".

I was thinking at first that this would be a meh album, but I'm glad I was wrong!
