Internecion Prod/Chaos Promotions Presents....
INQUISITION - Originating in Columbia in 1988 and originally a Thrash Metal act. Since their 1998 Opus "Into the Infernal Legions of the Ancient Cult" INQUISITION has been at the forefront of US Black Metal and is one of the... most respected and significant bands in Black Metal today. With a total of 5 critically acclaimed full lengths and a fanatical following spanning across the globe, their latest album "Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm" has further cemented their legacy.
INQUISITION'S signature sound is best described as an amalgamation of ritualistic, contemplative and majestic riffing, folkish lead melodies combined with pummelling and chaotic Black Metal.
This event will see their first appearance in New Zealand after touring the world with a reputation as one of the most enthralling and captivating live acts in Metal today.
VASSAFOR - A suffocating black abyss forged in 1994 in the deepest pits of New Zealand. VASSAFOR evoke utter dread and destruction through their mastery of Black, Death and Doom Metal and their live rituals have held VASSAFOR as the imperators of the Black flame in New Zealand.
ANNO DOMINI MORTUS - Translating to "In The Year of the Lord's Death" ANNO DOMINI MORTUS evoke unhinged, caustic and dispiriting Black Metal with an oppressive and irreverent atmosphere.
WINTER DELUGE - WINTER DELUGE combine the cold atmosphere of traditional European Black Metal with blistering speed and ferocious riffing.
