There are certain cycles in the rise and fall of bands that form a discernible pattern. One of the stations in this process is the break-though, when a group rises from the murky underground into the sphere of heightened mainstream attention. In the case of WATAIN for example, this transition can be pinpointed to a specific album, ‘Lawless Darkness’ (2010). It may seem a rather daring to attribute such a moment to INQUISITION‘s forthcoming seventh full-length ‘Bloodshed Across The Empyrean Altar Beyond The Celestial Zenith’ in advance. Yet even with the first spin of this record, any doubt and thought of hyperbole should disappear. The American black metal duo has obviously reached a level of confidence, maturity, and mastery of song writing, technical execution as well as strength of production that this masterpiece will mark a milestone in a career that has already gathered momentum.
INQUISTION frontman Dagon comment on ‘Wings Of Anu’: “He is the god of all stars, creator of all gods and ruler of all heavens. His wings have extended to earth in the form of wings in flying motion visiting us since we were the seeds of his creation. The wings are many and they watch upon us in silence from the skies that connect through portals of time.”
