Inquisition – Obscure Verses for the Multiverse Review

Inquisition might be the greatest black metal band on Earth. But they weren’t always gunning for that title. In fact, they’ve taken a long, unlikely path to the upper echelon. Guitarist / froghammer Dagon thrashspawned the band in Colombia back in ’89 before relocating Stateside in ’96, where he linked up with drummer / hellmachine Incubus. The duo released their debut, Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult, in 1998. Then, they quickly settled into a rut of obscurity for the better part of the decade, releasing three albums to a small-but-devoted cabal of black metal weirdos. They did okay for themselves, assuredly, but there were a handful of hurdles preventing Inquisition from reaching a wider audience…” Are you a black metal weirdo or aspire to be one? Want to know what hurdles were holding these guys back from the big leagues? Jordan Campbell has all the answers.
