Immolation is a death metal band from Yonkers, New York.  Formed in 1988, they have been very influential on countless death metal bands in America and abroad.  They and fellow New York death metal band, Incantation, helped bring the New York death metal scene to the attention of the underground. Immolation's debut album is frequently cited as being one of the first technical death metal albums and is therefore regarded as an important and highly influential album, having laid down the blueprint that bands such as Cryptopsy and Suffocation would follow with their respective debuts.  Immolation will be making their third Maryland Deathfest appearance in 2014.
