Inquisitor - Blasphemous Accusations demo '92

Whoresome hell. it this aggressive or what ? Pure insane speed death thras, very much in the vein of the almighty Sadus. I'm starting to get back into thrash metal as I grow older, but this band would have appealed to me back in my most deathly days. Speed, brutallity, aggression ... Inquisitor has it all. In fact their insane blast beats and almost black metally vocals are a Hell of a lot more brutal than many so called death metal bands. They know what we want to hear, and by jove chaps, they deliver it with hellslaughtering precision. I liked what these guys had to say in their letter to me (they're TOTALLY AGAINST THE TREND OF TODAY !!!) and Hell man, if they do not appear in this issue in interview form then you can bet your puke encrusted pullover they'll star in Anatomia "2. A new demo will be out later this year, but you can still buy this one (five unbelievable killer tracks, totally pro copied tape / colour cover) from them. A band to die for.

Inquisitor - Blasphemous Accusations

Deze nieuwe Nederlandse Black / Death metal band maakt met hun "Blasphemous Accusations" demo een pracht van een debut. Vijf duistere songs stormen op je af met een Helse snelheid. De opener "Crypt of Confession" en het krachtige "Cry of the Christians" zijn de absolute toppers. De teksten (plus foto's) staan tevens op de binnenzijde van het hoesje afgedrukt en zijn redelijk professioneel te noemen. Voorzien van een goede produktie en duivelse Black metal, brengt deze tape je rechtstreeks naar de grenzen van de Hell.

Inquisitor (Hol) - Blasphemous Accusations Demo '92

Inquisitor, one of the best thrash bands in Holland! Most of the members (three?) played in Desultory before, but because they wanted to achieve more with their music they started INQUISITOR. A very extreme thrash band which will also be appreciated by a lot of people who like Death (and Black?) metal. "Blasphemous Accusations" is their first demo and contains five professional songs. Fast songs with a lot of variation due to different speeds and songs that clearly differ from each other, so not just standard riffs during tape. THey mix variation and extrimity inyo perfect melody and speedy thrash songs with nice solos. The vocals are high and a kind of screaming and I think they even would fit perfectly in a black metal band. This screaming vocals are sometimes alternated by grunting vocals of the drummer, which gives a nice effect. This tape comes with nive artwork, photos and lyrics, which are about hypocrisy of the christian church today and its inquisition during the middle ages. Don't miss this one and get it for $ 6,-

Inquisitor - Blasphemous Accusations

It's definitely great to encounter someone who has been following PEARDROP's story, issue after issue. I really have to bow to any metal ravers who had bought a mag. Also, I thank you Erik for just being aware of my mag since '89! This guitarist is a tight player who is keen on speed, and that's really what INQUISITOR from Holland, are all about: fuckin speed. 'Crypt of Confession' leads off this beautiful packaged demo. The band emphasizes on strong rythem and I could notice some ols bands' influences such as Sacrifice (early) being reshaped into a thick result.'Cry of the Christians' starts the second side, and the opening iff sounds particulary stirring, same goes for these piercing vocals. INQUISITOR's music could be tagged as an intense death/thrash, very reminiscent of Polish bands' usual style, really exciting. The drummer: WIM has been playing in DESULTORY (whose demo was reviewed in an old issue) and man, he beats so fastly, he must have an engine rolling in his trunk.

Inquisitor - Blasphemous Accusations

Maybe this is a less known Beaufort Studio recording, but with a more worse drumming sound than most other bands. It's a pity the music is still a bit transparant for a recoring in a professional studio. Inquisitor claims to play heavier than Sadus and Dead Head. Well, I don't see the value of such a statement, but it's sure Inquisitor is a combination of the speed of both bands; a high 'grunt' and innovating riffs and solos which are surely lifting the band to the level of the two mentioned before. For the fast screaming style it's luckily a release iwth an own sound. New material will come out soon.

Inquisitor - Blasphemous Accusations

After a while being active under the name of Desultory and also after releasing two demos and a 7" a part of this band changed their name into Inquisitor and already have released their debut demo. Dressed in a coloured cover and filled with five fantastic deathrash songs. Well structered, played tight, very fast, original and with a good sound quality and production. After these tunes have entered your room I'm sure you'll slam your head. All songs are competed with Alex' screaming vocals which are really convincing! A great addition to the Dutch thrash scene. I just can't say more than this is a must for all deathrashers so don't wait.

Inquisitor - Blasphemous Accusations

Echt goede Death/trash acts zijn dun gezaai: ik denk bijvoorbeeld aan Sadus, Dead Head en Exoto en dan vergeet ik er waarschijnlijk nog een paar. Het Nederlands Inquisitor mag zeker aan dat lijstje toegevoegd worden. De band bestaat voor de helft uit ex-Desultory leden (de Nederlands band, niet de Zweedse). Er staan vijf nummers op deze uitstekend verzorgde demo (kleurenhoesje en teksten) die in de befaamde Beaufort studio wer opgenomen. alle vijf bijten ze gemeen in het rond in de hoogste versnelling. Het venijn droop uit mijn kassettedeck. Vooral de A-kant van de tape is gortig goed. Ondanks de intense agressiviteit is elk nummer doordacht opgebouwd zodat de verveling nergens toeslaat. Je kan deze demo bestellen 10 gulden of 200 Bfr.
