Controversial Washington-based black metal band Inquisition were swiftly dropped from Season of Mist last week after a series of resurfaced child porn charges that frontman Jason "Dagon" Weirbach allegedly pleaded guilty to in 2009. Though the band deny any misdeeds, they've now been dropped from an upcoming tour with Satyricon.

The latter is set to embark on a final tour later this spring, and they had tapped Inquisition as their openers. Now, however, it looks as if they'll complete the tour without the band.

Inquisition shared the following statement about the cancellation:

Inquisition extends its appreciation to all fans and individuals who have supported us throughtout its career. A thank you will never be enough to express our level of regard to you.

Inquisition has been dropped from the Satyricon tour.

Inquisition will continue; in the mean time we respect everones position and will allow time to control the chaos over its own horizons into its own order.

Once again our greatest level of appreciation to you.
