The founding fathers of Norwegian Black Metal influenced countless bands with their uncompromisingly abrasive music. Formed around 1985 Mayhem was the first black metal band from Norway to make a serious impact in their homeland, which in the early ‘90s developed a burgeoning underground scene rife with violent, sometimes anti-Christian activity, as evidenced by Mayhem’s non-musical history. Drummer Hellhammer, who at one time worked in a mental hospital, is the only remaining member of the band’s prime-period lineup.
The band Inquisition was formed in 1988 in Cali, Colombia by Dagon. The band started as a thrash metal act, and in 1994 evolved into raw black metal. In 1996, Dagon left Colombia and moved back to the United States to continue Inquisition and search for a new drummer. That same year Dagon met Incubus, who joined the band on drums and the creation of their debut full length album began. This line-up has remained stable for more than fifteen years and is now seen as the classic Inquisition line-up. Inquisition style of black metal involves slow, deep and dark riffing combined with sudden tempo changes to faster sections based around blast beats and high-speed riffing.
