INQUISITION are touring in support of last year’s ‘Obscure Verses For The Multiverse’ album, which is available in various formats via the Season of Mist shop. Track listing and album artwork can be found below:
INQUISITION’s back catalogue, namely Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult (1998), Invoking the Majestic Throne of Satan (2002), Magnificent Glorification of Lucifer (2004), Nefarious Dismal Orations (2007), and Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm (2011), are now all available digitally.
"Obscure Verses for the Multiverse" is a revelation. This album will mark a turning point in the steady rise of INQUISITION from the murky underground to a major act of the Black Metal scene. There is no denying that IMMORTAL provides the stylistic matrix on which the Americans develop their own sound. 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. INQUISITION provide credibility, musical quality and a huge following, which they acquired through years of powerful live performances as well as unleashing strong releases, while clawing their way from the bottom with relentless energy and faith in their craft. This critical mass of die-hard fans became visible when the band played at this year’s edition of Hellfest in front of more than 10.000 raving spectators. INQUISITION are from the US city of Seattle, Washington although originally formed by frontman Dagon in the South American country of Colombia in 1989. At first the band followed the path of Thrash Metal in what Dagon calls “chapter one”. Three demos were released during this period, before the musician moved back to the United States in 1996. There Dagon met drummer Incubus, who joined the same year. Together the duo created their debut full-length "Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult" (1998), which immediately created a buzz in the netherworld of the Black Metal genre. Each of the following four albums deepened their impact within the scene, but due to unknowingly signing to a controversial label being barred from mainstream recognition in parts of Europe. This will change now. INQUISITION are ready to set the record straight and openly meet any given question. "Obscure Verses for the Multiverse" is destined for dark glory. Witness this black beast rising!
