Immolation

Immolation is a death metal band, formed in 1986 in Yonkers, NY under the name Rigor Mortis. In 1987 they changed their name to Immolation. They released a series of demos before signing with Roadrunner Records to release their first (and only) album for the label, Dawn of Possession, widely regarded as a classic of the first wave of death metal.

Immolation is a death metal band, formed in 1986 in Yonkers, NY under the name Rigor Mortis. In 1987 they changed their name to Immolation. They released a series of demos before signing with Roadrunner Records to release their first (and only) album for the label, Dawn of Possession, widely regarded as a classic of the first wave of death metal. It was a more typical death metal album for the time, although extremely technical. After Here in After, which was a far more technical and unconventional album (released in 1996), Craig Smilowski left the band to be replaced by Alex Hernandez, who played on the next three albums: Failures for Gods released in 1999, Close to a World Below (generally considered to be the band's finest work) in 2000 and Unholy Cult in 2002. Steve Shalaty (ex-Odium, ex-Gutted) stepped behind the kit for Harnessing Ruin in 2005 and Shadows in the Light in 2007.

The band has released three studio albums since that time: Majesty and Decay in 2010, Kingdom and Conspiracy in 2013 and Atonement in 2017. They are currently signed to the label Nuclear Blast America.



Current members: Ross Dolan - Bass, Vocals; Robert Vigna - Guitar; Steve Schalaty - Drums; Alex Bouks - Guita.

Former members: John McEntee - Guitar; Thomas Wilkinson - Guitar; Neal Boback -Drums; Craig Smilowski - Drums; Alex Hernandez - Drums; Bill Taylor - Guitar « hide
