INQUISITION are touring in support of their latest full-length 'Obscure Verses for the Multiverse', which is available in various formats via the Season of Mist shop.

INQUISITION have furthermore completed the reissue of their full album catalogue in Europe with their 2011 masterpiece 'Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm' out in stores there now. The US version will follow in early 2016. The album can also be directly ordered in various formats from the Season of Mist shop.

All INQUISITION reissues, which are exclusively released via Season of Mist, come with new artwork by Paolo Girardi. The renowned artist already created the cover art for the US duo's latest album 'Obscure Verses For The Multiverse' (2013). The original artwork will be included each time as well. Girardi's covers are part of an overarching concept based on medieval altar painting such as the triptych 'The Last Judgement' and should be seen in conjunction.

Paolo Girardi can be seen below with his paintings for INQUISITION.

INQUISITION cemented their reputation as rising underground stars with their fifth full-length 'Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm' (2011). Despite the long wait for a new album after 'Nefarious Dismal Orations' was released in 2007, the black metal duo continued straight on the course already charted by 'Magnificent Glorification of Lucifer' (2004). The Americans basically stayed true to their ritualistic approach and croaking vocal style that created the buzz around the duo's earlier black attacks 'Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult' (1998) and 'Invoking the Majestic Throne of Satan' (2002). Yet the devil lurks in details, and INQUISITION achieved to climb up the ladder of success by little but effective tweaks an innovations. On 'Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm', Dagon sounded more vitriolic than ever, the guitars move to the front and added scope, while the production remains brutal and dirty but overall improved and dead on target. The band had been founded by Dagon, while living in the South American state of Colombia in 1989. After the release of three demos, the guitarist and vocalist moved back to the United States in 1996, where he met drummer Incubus in the city of Seattle, Washington. INQUISITION's debut full-length 'Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult' already attracted a host of adherents that grew with each further release. With 'Obscure Verses for the Multiverse' (2013), the band set out to become a major force in the black metal scene. Harsh but melodic and catchy riffing combines perfectly with blasting outbursts and dark, moody passages that are strengthened by rasping vocals with a sinister raven-like quality. In preparation for the next onslaught of this black beast, INQUISITION's full back-catalogue is being officially published by Season of Mist. All reissues come with new stunning artwork by the renowned artist Paolo Girardi and the original cover is included in the booklet. Girardi's work for these five reissues forms an overarching concept based on medieval religious art such as Hans Memling's famous five part altar painting, the triptych and backsides of the outer wings 'The Last Judgement' from the 15th century.
