Inquisition- Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult
Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult is the first full-length release by black metal band Inquisition the album was released back in 1998. Hells Headbangers has decided to re-release the album with a remastered sound and also new artwork by Antichrist Kramer who also done the artwork on the other Inquisition releases Magnificent Glorification of Lucifer and Nefarious Dismal Orations. The first thing I want to mention on this re-release is that the overall sound is outstanding. I was reading on the Hells Headbangers page where this CD is supposed to be out in August, but hopefully it will arrive back from the pressing plant before then and all I can say is that it has been added to my buy list. Inquisition is one of those bands that never seems to release a bad album. One of the main things that always stood out to me the most about Inquisition was the way Dagon does his vocals they have droning feeling that is hypnotizing and Incubus does a killer job with the drumming. The guitars on Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult have a treble tone that creates a fantastic atmosphere to surround all of the songs. I also noticed how five of the songs go way past the six-minute mark, but nothing on this release seems boring this is where most other bands fail. The tempo on the album ranges from slow and crushing to fast as well. Recommended tracks are Empire Of Luciferian Race, Journey To Infernukeorreka and Solitary Death In Nocturnal Woodlands. I advise listening to Into the Infernal Regions of the Ancient Cult in complete darkness and solitude. Highly Recommended.
