Reviews Stigmata Me, I'm In Misery

Inquisitor heeft met zijn comeback een zeer puik album afgeleverd. De thrash metal met wat deathinvloeden is sterk genoeg dat deze elke fan van snelle thrash metal zou moeten kunnen bekoren.

They are in a league or their own with the musical style they churn out on this record, really pushing forward hard, fast, and at times even directionless.

“Northern Goliath-Death A Black Rose" has an interesting intro before shredding your nerve endings with an avalanche of speed brought on by guitarist Erik Spooten and bass guitarist Alex Bakker.

Letzten Endes präsentieren sich Band und Album gemeinsam als rohes Energiebündel, das die letzten zwei Dekaden so viel Kraft tanken konnte, dass eine Platte wie "Stigmata Me, I'm In Misery" sich gerne auch mal überschlagen darf.

Natuurlijk doet Inquisitor ook anno nu gewoon waar het goed in is: kneiterhard, bruut en snel thrashen.

Het resulteert in een knaller van een cd waarvan ik durft te beweren dat thrashliefhebbers na slechts een luisterbeurt “om” zijn want het lukt Inquisitor om het niveau van hun invloeden te halen, zo niet te evenaren.

And boy, do they deliver on that promise. Taking cues from some of the 80s’ most savage LPs, you’ll find hints of Sadus, Dark Angel, early Pestilence, Kreator and Protector amongst breakneck time changes, savage riffing, vocals rawer than road rash an

There’s more than just raging speed to this album, but by crikey the band don’t hold back when they truly let loose. This honest love of thrashing death metal is great to see, and this passion comes through into the music quite clearly.

Now, the new track is top notch INQUISITOR material. It seems that the band never stopped playing, because they sound exactly as in their last album, that came out 21 years ago! Frantic, fast paced, brutal Thrash Metal.

Il primo (che da pure il nome a questo 7”) è il loro classico marchio di fabbrica. Serratissimo thrash/death, giocato tutto sui una velocità forsennata, batteria modello treno in deragliamento e una voce da psicopatico.

The only original song, I Am Sick, I Must Die is an absolute banger hearkening back to the bands grand tradition. The breakneck speeds and maniacal vocals only serve to prove as a chest thumping proclamation that Inquisitor are back and good as ever.
