INQUISITION's Dagon and Incubus appear and sound so serious I won’t even attempt to lighten the atmosphere; INQUISITION's Dagon has even entered the Guinness Book Of World Records for the longest album art explanation which goes as follows:
“The seven headed beast of the cosmic apocalypse spits out multiple universes after destroying the old universe it so deemed unworthy of further expansion; this is the creator and destroyer of the entire astral plane and creator of all reptilian lords, the great beast of all beasts. On the sides, two cloaked humans who represent our current plane of the humanoid’s third dimensional plane from which we project hymns, our music to the astral plane, and our form of connecting with the outer dimension in which our spirit comes from and shall return to. Through music we connect with the occult forces, the hidden or unseen forces the gods have created for us to be in tune with. Why music elevates us into another dimension is no coincidence. In the center is the demon Pazuzu used as a representation of the alien life form that has crossed all dimensions entering our third to create humanoids as the enslaved race of the gods. The reptilian ones behold the secrets of the cosmic mechanics contained in his book, from here science as we know it is an ancient secret the gods have slowly illuminated us with… in this book we find the obscure verses for the multiverse. In the end, all universes and dimensions collide into one mass of destruction leaving a black hole where all light and quantum physics as we know it die and is consumed leading to an entire new cycle once again by creating a new universe for reasons we shall never know.”
For their record label, Season Of Mist, they are simply a revelation. The label also has no doubt that this INQUISITION album, ‘Obscure Verses For The Multiverse’, will mark a turning point in the steady rise of INQUISITION from the murky underground to a major act of the black metal scene. ‘Obscure Verses For The Multiverse’ is out now everywhere (which usually means Europe and North America) since October the 29th, 2013, and awaits your order here (Season Of Mist e-store), on iTunes or on BandCamp. But first enjoy, if you dare, the "harsh but melodic and catchy riffing combined perfectly with blasting outbursts and dark, moody passages strengthened by rasping vocals with a sinister raven-like quality below" and “witness this black beast rising!”:
INQUISITION is the brainchild of guitarist and vocalist Dagon who started the band in 1988 in Cali, Colombia, South America. A thrash metal act at first, INQUISITION evolved into a raw black metal affair by 1994. In 1996, Dagon left Colombia and moved back to the United States where he first sought out a new drummer. He met Incubus who remained steady at Dagon's side ever since. Dagon's monotonous, chant-like voice (that is apparently meant to reflect not that of a human, but rather that of an unseen entity in demonic form) was first heard in 1990 on ‘Anxious Death’ EP, then in 1996 on ‘Incense Of Rest’ EP and finally on INQUISITION's debut LP ‘Into The Infernal Regions Of The Ancient Cult’, issued in 1998. The infernal duo kept releasing records, namely, ‘Invoking The Majestic Throne Of Satan’ in 2002, ‘Magnificent Glorification Of Lucifer’ in 2007, and ‘Nefarious Dismal Orations’ in 2011, through some infernal and controversial label barred from mainstream recognition in parts of Europe. In partnership with Season Of Mist who are “ready to set the record straight and openly meet any given question”, INQUISITION are ready for change.
