“When a new Inquisition album appears, it’s not even a question of whether it’ll be any good. It’s a matter of how good. In the case of ‘Obscure Verses for the Multiverse’, the answer is “completely fucking awesome”. In fact, we’re gonna go ahead and say it’s the band’s finest hour…Call it what you want, we’ll call it the Black Metal album of 2013″ – Decibel Magazine
“Safe to say the new Inquisition record, Obscure Verses for the Multiverse, is inventive and incredible, a stellar assembly of riff-first black metal guaranteed to go down as one of the year’s finest albums, metal or otherwise.” -Stereogum
“Obscure Verses for the Multiverse is exactly what you would want to hear from Inquisition. This is a dark album that offers both heavy, mid tempo groove as well as fast and aggressive moments. The insane drumming, the eerie guitars, a few melodic passages, a lot of dissonant parts and that demonic voice behind the microphone, everything is where it is supposed to be and the end result is fucking insane.” – CVLT Nation
