Having left Colombia and thrash metal behind in the mid '90s, Inquisition landed in Washington State with freshly applied corpse paint and a mission to play some solid riffs for a new goat-worshipping horde. The band's approach is a bit out of character for what most black metal bands are doing in the Pacific Northwest. This is not your art-school dropout's "Cascadian" black metal that sings about protecting wolf habitat or the nobility of the rain forest. Inquisition is a band that sings praise of he who walks with cloven hoof. They offer advice to those summoned by ancient wizards under a black moon. And most importantly, they speak to the heshers that are, as my friend would say, "sworn to the darkness who won't break the oath" (AKA black metal fans that roll their eyes at fluffy tree metal and appreciate the continuous-grinding-buzzsaw sound of early Immortal records).
