Wicked Inquisition – Silence Thereafter

Wicked Inquisition – Silence Thereafter
Self released – 2013
Rock, Seventies, Stoner, Doom
Rated: ****

The Minnesota foursome Wicked Inquisition knows exactly where the good mustard is stored. Back in the seventies! On their four-track EP Silence Thereafter they give us an amazing spoonful of proto metal, mixed with some legendary doom and classic seventies rock. Thick, dark and with that vintage obscure sound three mid-paced tracks full of attitude and atmosphere transport us to that golden era of heavy rock. And then there’s that instrumental interlude that mellows the soul and let’s the blood cool down before closing with Radius of Fear. Another brilliant gem that excels in contrasting riffs, that move from trucking to stomping from spacey to murky and achieves almost perfection in the tranquil doom genre. We can’t wait to hear a complete Wicked Inquisition album!
