Inquisition... nyaaaaaaaaaaarghhghghghhhhh!!!!!!

No further introduction necessary I'd say, so let's continue.

Ominous Doctrines Of The Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm is the new Inquisition album and it is Inquisition at its most inquisition-y. A lightning fast, razor-sharp riff accompanied by thundering drums (got any more clichés? i'm game), followed by Lord Frog's awesome croak... it's all there. Yeah, yeah baby, yeah!

I'm sorry.

Inquisition prove with ODOTMM they are still masters at what they do, which is invoking a trancelike, satanic atmosphere through employing both droning, croaky vocals coupled with tremolo-heavy yet catchy and infectiously dark Black metal sharp-as-a-razor, fast-as-a-shark riffs. With kick-ass-soul-cutting solos. Ace! Honestly, who kicks it like Lord Frog and his companion does? Not even the infernal lord himself, I dare say.

I'm pretty much at a loss for words right now, because what is their to add...

Inqy once again releases an album of high quality, in their own truly unique style. You're going to love it or hate it, depending on what you thought of their previous albums. You can trust me on that one. Oh - if you've never heard Inqy before, but you are into to evil and raw Black metal, check them out! Today! Or tomorrow, whatever works best for you. I don't really care either way; I'm occupied banging my head to the tunes of Lord Inqy!

Lucifer, punish your enemies oh lord of the night! Destroy them all!

The only feeling I can get when hearing their songs is laughing and taking this band as a joke because vocals suck so much ass.

Yes, certainly, cause at least those bands have some sort to a lot of artistic merit to them.

Bleh, I don't see it. I personally find them very overrated. Artistic merit? Wtf is that? Inquisition is unique, at least.

Unique don't make me laugh. They sound like a totally underporduced Dissection with worse songs and even worse vocals.
The riffs they play have been done to death.

Find me a vocalist that sounds like Dagon. Riffs, ok, not unique but still pretty killer compared to most bands imo. Could be due to the fact I never liked Dissection.

No thanks. The guy fucking sucks. If you want well-done croaking vocals, listen to Summoning "Lugburz" or the song "Elfstone" (on "Dol Guldur") or to Abbath (of Immortal).
Inquisition's vocals are just lame, sleep-inducing and boring to death.

And Marcel is right: there's nothing original in their music. Rather mediocre, in fact.
The only distinctive element in this band is vocals, and they're distinctive in the bad way.

To each his own, I gues. I personally dislike Summoning and Immortal as well, though I appreciate the latter for their past.

first of all that is simple since 90% of black metal is worse and second Striborg is possibly the worst ever bm to grace the face of the earth.

mmm checking your posts there isn't a single thing there about what you like or think is good. Looks as if we have a troll here... Only whining how crap everything is. Would be mor interested in seeing what BM you DO like so it's possible to understand where you're coming from when you say Xasthur and Leviathan are the bottom of the barrel.

Never heard Elffor, so I can't judge. BBurzum I generally I agree although there are one or two tracks I do enjoy.

Inquisition need no artistic merit! It's not about that here, dudes. Xasthur.. you've scoped out the real piss there, same with most Marduk, but Leviathan's pretty decent IMO. If the argument is about being worse than most USBM, give me some examples fellows, cause I'd like to hear them.

99.9% of the LLN bands, loads of German BM such as Nargaroth. Actually loads of bands are worse than most USBM

Haha, I'll never post after having a few drinks again on the subject of black metal, cause I'm well aware of this lol. You're quite correct (to be fair, LLN has more good bands than that though).

I guess what I meant was, disregarding all the bands that are clones and shitty bedroom wankery, who are they any worse than? Can probably just be chalked up to difference of opinion though, since they aren't for everyone (especially with those vocals). We can agree that Striborg are probably not only the worst BM band ever, but the worst project ever. The only thing Sin Nanna ever did that was worth anything was Pentemple.

And of course Sin Nanna's claim to fame is that Sunn O))) named a song on Black One after him and are fans of Striborg

I understand that the guys from Sunn O))) must have smoked a lot and probably still do... But how can they smoke so much that they think Striborg is good? Shit...

When I saw the opening 'nyaaaaaaaaaaarghhghghghhhhh!!!!!!' I knew it was Lucas who was reviewing this one

Great 'OMG-this shit is awesome (on first listen)' review. I think you've hit it on the spot. And I can somewhat see the comparisons to Dissection but this album is so damn catchy and has such a menacing atmosphere that I don't care - I like the mid-paced grooves that they've got going on too. Also, I've really taken a liking to the croaked-style of vocals over the years so that doesn't bother me one bit.

Desolate Funeral Chant!! \m/
