When you have so many bands of the same genre, you’re bound to come across those cookie cutter groups who you can easily lump in the same category. However when it comes to Inquisition, they can’t truly be described without being experienced. From the brilliant lyrical content, to the unique vocals, to Dagon and Incubus’ potency at playing as a two-piece, the band is truly an art of its own. Dagon’s simplistic but attention-demanding stage presence combined with the trance-like presence of their music made their stop in Arizona on the Conquerors Of The World tour worth attending for Inquisition alone.
Founded in 1988 in Cali, Colombia, Inquisition has evolved over time, progressing from Thrash to Black Metal, changing countries and solidifying their lineup with the arrival of Incubus on drums (1996). Needless to say, with the progression of the band they have gained an increasing fan base with no sign of slowing down, especially with the release of Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm (2010). We had the pleasure of interviewing one of the two men behind the music, Dagon, about Inquisition’s Thrash/Black Metal influences, plans for a new album and the future of the band.
Here are some of the photos we took during their set.
