Black metal powerhouse Inquisition has announced a headlining European tour with support from Archgoat, Ondskapt, and Blackdeath. The tour kicks off on January 20th in Germany, and continues through 11 different countries. A full list of tour dates can be found below. Regarding the new tour, founding member Dagon comments:
"The time has come to close the black circle, and journey together as one shadow by gathering what we feel is a line-up of cults that we know will offer the atmosphere we seek to bring to you. We are honored to have assembled and bring to all followers this occasion to witness live in the flesh, in support of the Inquisition headlining tour 2015.
"As direct support we have chosen the beast of Archgoat right out of Finland for their long dedication to Black Metal and the art of occult music in general; simply one of our favorite bands and a classic act. Equally proud to have with us will be the obscure Swedish cult Ondskapt casting their potent dose of highly lethal poisons, and, the unique darkened souls of Blackdeath from Russia evoking abstract rites of dark frequencies whom we are very proud to have joining us. From beginning to end throughout the evening, we would like to offer an occasion of ritual to the ancient ones and initiation to the newly arrived. Raise the chalice!”
Inquisition is also currently embarking on a previously announced Fall North American tour alongside Deicide, Septicflesh, Carach Angren, and Abysmal Dawn. The tour, which began last night in Charlotte will continue throughout the United States until October 29th. More...

"We sent already a information to all bands, we hope that you have got it. It was a hard decision for us, but through personal problems and business-problems (through the cancellation from Gehenna, Throne of Katarsis & Archgoat exploited our calculation for the fest) it was the right decision.
"Sorry for this delay, but we try to arrange professional Festivals for 2014! In the next days we can release the new dates."

Finnish black/death band Archgoat is streaming the entire new EP "Heavenly Vulva (Christ's Last Rites)" at this location.
The album stream will run until October 19, 2011, so listen quick! The EP will be released on November 1, 2011.
Archgoat will be releasing the mini-album "Heavenly Vulva (Christ's Last Rites)" on November 1st, 2011, and the artwork is available below. The band's publicist also commented on the release:
"Archgoat's new mini-album Heavenly Vulva (Christ’s Last Rites) goes straight for the throat of the self-proclaimed messiah and his wretched mother. Featuring six trademark God-slaying tracks torn directly from the Virgin’s violated womb, this brand new EP is gloriously crude, divinely tumultuous and deliciously deviant, as we have come to expect from the filthy, fearless Finn black crusaders.
"Defiled, invasive unsanctified black/death delivered in a corrupt, vile and demonic fashion, these anti-epiphanies embed themselves in the sacred flesh, spilling blood from the demised dog’s quivering body, funeral bells chiming as paradise is ransacked and the deceptive lie of centuries is exposed. Pounding, ripping, gurgling and mocking, the truth reveals itself. Blood-soaked, battered and humiliated, the deposed former denizens of Heaven cower in a corner. A frantic, blasphemous onslaught on the blind, deluded fraud-worshippers and knee-bending whoremongers who follow the path of the Liar!
