Doctrine of Damnation

Rated 3.53/5 (70.59%) (17 Votes)

Don’t let the goofy name fool you, Finland’s Inkvisitor (one of the least Metal band names since Chinchilla) is anything but goofy. You say you wish you could have frozen Slayer in time back when they were releasing Reign in Blood and South of Heaven? Then you’ll want to grab a copy of Doctrine of Damnation because it has all the fantastic riffs, blazing solos and gruff, angry shouting that made those Slayer records classics. That description might suggest Inkvisitor are ripping off the Thrash titans but rather they’ve taken the style and written some excellent tunes without simply rehashing something you’ve already heard. To say it is unoriginal would be fair but in the same breath you cannot deny how much the mix of blazing speeds and menacing slower parts will have you banging your head. Great job by Inkvisitor going retro AND writing some decent songs.
