I've been waiting for this album for months, and now that it is here I am so stoked I had to write a review. I have been a fan of Inquisition for a long time, I literally love their sound.

This new album has all the elements of previous albums pus tons more. Lots of variation in the vocals, not just the death croaks of an ancient goblin wizard of the previous albums. This time the voice is way more annunciated, and even has some death metal growls and other vocal styles.

The guitar is AMAZING.. the tone is perfect, the way he bends the notes up and down is mesmerizing, and like mentioned in other reviews there are some solos and some kinda post metal melodic interludes. I love love love the way the guitarist plays, it is perfect to me. Super fast tremolo-played bits alternating with fully strummed chords. Also, his style has that deep sadness of emotion to it that I find so beautiful in it's absolute bleakness... other bands that touch on this would be Taake, Judas Iscariot and Sargeist.

Drums are fast and fit the music perfectly. Awesome blast beats plus dead-on double bass drums add so much to the tracks and link up perfectly.

The production quality could be a bit better. That would be my only negative.

All in all, this is one of my favorite black metal albums ever, every song is a winner, and has been playing on repeat in my truck since I bought it. Get this now. 4.5 stars

I have been listening to Inquisitions albums and they are one of my favorite bands/black metal bands. I figured this album would be along the same vein as the last several but it is my new favorite of theirs. The lyrics are getting more like words that the usual monotone voice he used previously which I like but this is like the next level of that. More cool breakdowns and the songs seem more well thought out and creative. The guitar work is getting better and he evens solos a bit. I like how the drums kind of change it up and let there be some space at times. Good solid album that is good all the way through. These guys rock and I think if anything this heavy s*** will put them out there even more than before! Bow before Inquisition!

I've never written a review on here, why would I start now? Because this album is phenomenal, front to back. It's not all that often you come across something new that blows you away. You tend to like what you like and use it as a benchmark to compare everything else to. "It's alright, but I'd rather listen to (insert 20 year old black metal album here)." I find this album very refreshing. It's something new I can listen to relentlessly and not get tired of. And as a 2-piece, these guys just nail it live, which is what steered me towards this album in the first place. You've spent $15 on dumber things, and I know you have. Stop reading this and just buy the thing.

Wow what an amazing black metal release ! so much going on from 2 guys .Incubus is seriously a really good extreme drummer. perfectly flows with the guitars . This album has some nice catchy bits and pleasant melodies but sounds alot like the Inquisition sound still that unique vocal style and guitar playing just one of a kind . Haunting , Dark , Meditative , Yet Intense .Very good song writing going on here.

There should be more reviews than 6, so here is mine. I might as well say this album is good from beginning to end. It should also be said, if it hasn't already, if you didn't like Dagons vocals on the other releases Obscure Verses might be the best opportunity for you to get over it. It should not be overlooked that there is lots of change up and variation in each song and comes across to me as very creative and thought through, no fillers on this one. I am still kicking myself for not getting one of the limited releases from season of mist. Hail Dagon and Incubus black metal kings!

One of Inquisition's master pieces. The case comes with a patch and a key chain holder. Now the music is awesome! I have been following this band since it beginnings. Obscure Verses takes the cake! Buy it!

Just an awesome album. Inquisition has created one of the best black metal albums of the last decade. Highly recommended.

Finally broke down and got some wish list items. Can't believe I held off on this one. Obscure Verses is dark and very powerful. I love the guitar tone and creaky, trollish vocals!

Raise the Chalice!!!
