Nocturnal Gatherings and Wicked Rites in Oakland.

Mon, 04/09/2017 - 21:29

Inquisition's unholy magic attack was electrifying last night at the Oakland Metro. Even in a live setting, these American Black Metal veterans are remarkably good for only a two person band. I'm not a fan of Portland, Oregon's Uada or Oakland's Void Omnia and I only paid minimal attention to L. A.'s Volahn as I've seen them in a supporting role before. This was my second time seeing Inquisition and first seeing them as a headliner after witnessing them play alongside Mayhem at the Social Hall in San Francisco back in February. Naturally as a headliner, they presented those in attendance with a more complete setlist, and what a setlist at that! Highlights included Embraced by the unholy powers of Death and Destruction, From Chaos they Came, the absurdly titled Vortex from the Celestial flying Throne of Storms and a grand total of four songs selected from what I consider the peak of their catalog, 2011's Ominous Doctrines of the perpetual mystical Macrocosm (say that five times fast!). They were on point for the entire duration of their set with an extremely tight performance, clarity of sound and a visually striking stage setup. I left that place feeling fully satisfied.

Thanks Nater! They're extremely impressive in a live setting for a two-piece band.
