Regarding "Power from the Center of the Cosmic Black Spiral", Frontman Dagon comments on behalf of the duo: "This is Inquisition in its mid paced, heavy and hypnotic form; classic Inquisition. Here we have tight neck breaking riffs and percussive rhythms while mixed with an open and wide atmospheric segment that comes later in the song opening an entire new dimension; this contrasting works with the song's theme of: death and destruction from chaos, perfection and creation from order all from within the center of the galactic battlefield where the gods of creation and the mechanics of the universe are one, working as destroyer and creator enabling cosmic evolution. In short, this is tribute to the center of galaxies and their law as an all-consuming force, a great Satan."

INQUISITION recorded 'Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith' at the legendary London Bridge Studios in Seattle (ALICE IN CHAINS, QUEENSRYCHE, WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, and many more) with long time engineer Arthur Rizk (PRURIENT, POWER TRIP).

INQUISITION frontman Dagon commented: "Our 2016 European co-headlining tour marks another journey for INQUISITION that comes with a new album. We take great pride at selecting artists who are willing and have the time and dedication to share the stage with us while considering what should be a ritualistic experience that goes beyond a music event from uprising bands, to the classic ancients all under one shadow. We invite you to witness SCHAMMASCH, MYSTIFIER, ROTTING CHRIST, and INQUISITION on the Bloodshed Rituals 2016 European tour with the intentions of evoking the essence of occult music, while breaking necks in the process of invoking your spirit."
