Inquisition have been putting out amazing albums for a long time. I didn't expect them to break that streak, and they have not. For their 8th album, this Colombian band has released another fantastic work of melodic, complex, occult Black Metal, and it is just as awesome as you would expect it to be.
Nobody else really sounds like Inquisition. They are heavy and grim, recalling bands like Darkthrone or Immortal at their best (vocalist Dagon has an especially Abbath-like croak), but they are deeply melodic and complex like Uada or The Chasm, with songs that build layer upon layer of hooks and punishing heaviness that make every composition just a pleasure to listen to over and over, because you will discover new things to like with every spin. This is just a masterful workout in Black Metal grace and power, showing what the genre is really capable of when the practitioners are willing to push their limits. A must-have album.
